Motorola Teases Droid RAZR HD Launch This Friday

By  |  3 Comments

Motorola might finally be ready to unveil the Droid RAZR HD this Friday.

The Google-owned smartphone manufacturer posted a photo on Facebook with an outline of a smartphone and a hint that it will have 4G LTE. That alone isn’t much to go on, but we’ve seen the Motorola RAZR HD leaked for months now, so we can’t imagine any other phone Motorola would spend a few days teasing.

Update: The Motorola Droid RAZR HD launch date is still unclear.

Motorola announced the first Droid RAZR last fall, so it makes sense that it would announce the follow-up around the same time. Unlike the RAZR MAXX, which simply has a larger battery than the RAZR, the RAZR HD will have updated specs similar to the Atrix HD.

The Droid RAZR HD will likely run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich like the Atrix HD, and might use Android’s virtual buttons instead of physical buttons. The RAZR HD won’t have the gigantic 3300mAh battery of the RAZR MAXX, but it will likely have a 2530mAh battery which is still relatively large.

We don’t know what processor the RAZR HD will have, or any other internal specs, but we hope it’s at least as good as the Atrix HD. The Atrix HD uses a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 just like the U.S. versions of the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. It also has1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM with 4.7GB of storage available to the user.

We’d like the see more storage space, but if the RAZR HD is just the Atrix HD with a larger battery, we wouldn’t be upset. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long after the unveiling to see the RAZR HD on store shelves.

    Just checked the Motorola Facebook page. Here’s the quote from it:
    “Guess the Smartphone: I’m really fast! I browse the Web, multitask and power through emails with my 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. And just a note, I’m in market in the U.S. from Motorola already. Which smartphone am I?”
    The Friday announcement will NOT be about a NEW phone. It will just be to reveal which already “in the market” phone they had people guessing about.
    Moto, setting this Facebook “game” so that people could so easily think it was a lead up to an announcement of the Droid Razr HD was a cruel joke. If the result you hoped for was to piss people off, you have succeeded.

      “F” Motorola and their snail paced, secretive style. I got my SG3 on Monday and I love love love it and I already know that Jelly Bean is coming in a month or two and know it will work correctly and be a quality update unlike the ICS crap that motorola put into its Razr. Good by motorola!

    Lol @ Ruffster, Samsung updates less than MOTO. My Galaxy Tab 10.1 STILL doesn’t have ICS, and its more powerful than almost any phone.
