Motorola today unveiled a “new Motorola” from Gotham Hall in New York City.
This turned leaf comes with a number of new Motorola devices, including the DROID RAZR HD for Verizon. Launching with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (upgrade due before end of year), the RAZR HD is (according to Motorola) the “most compact big screen smartphone. That’s because Motorola’s packed the 4.7-inch display into a much smaller package with a tiny bezel. Thankfully, Motorola’s not sacrificing the battery life here. With a 2500 mAh battery, the device pulls 16 hours of talk time. It’s only 8.4-millimeters thin, too! Inside, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 and a full gigabyte of RAM. Other specifications include an 8-megapixel camera with HDR, NFC, and Kevlar®-backing. The device will be available for the holiday season.
The MAXX variant of the RAZR HD includes 32 GB of storage, a 3200 mAh battery, 27 hours of streaming music over LTE, and 21 hours of talk time.
Interestingly, Motorola has focused their efforts on creating a smaller device with a 4.3-inch HD display. The DROID RAZR M barely has a bezel at all, with 40% more screen space than Apple’s iPhone 4S. It’s powered by a 2000 mAh battery, 1 GB of RAM, and the same Snapdragon S4. It comes with an 8-megapixel HDR-capable camera and 8 GB of internal storage.
The RAZR M is available for pre-order starting today and in stores next week at just $99.
