Enthusiasts and fans have been after the details of Motorola XT907 for several months now but nothing tangible had surfaced yet. However, there is credible information on the details of this new Android smartphone from Google-owned Motorola – including pictures. The good folks at Engadget managed to get their hands on images of this elusive smartphone and we now know for sure that it will go by the name of Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE and it is coming to Verizon wireless when it launches. The phone is quite sleek – the design is impressive and the lines and shape cleanly cut as you can see in the image below, but what is it packing under the hood?
One of the first things I noticed about this new phone is the 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED display, its quite a catchy feature if you ask me. The phone will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, it runs on a Snapdragon S4 processor and has 1GB RAM. From the pictures leaked to Engadget, it appears the phone does not have any hardware buttons on its front surface. Instead, Motorola decided to place three touch buttons for navigation.
The most disappointing feature so far is that it will have only 8GB of inbuilt memory and although there is a MicroSD slot that allows up to 32GB of extra memory, I feel a phone with such high specs could do better than 8GB, especially since its rear camera can record 1080p HD video. Aside from the standard smartphone specs, the RAZR M is fitted with Gorilla Glass 2 to protect the screen from damage and scratches and a Kevlar backing – these are becoming very common with Motorola phones today.
As far as connectivity goes, the RAZR M will have 4G LTE, full GSM, HSPA+ and UMTS capabilities and will also offer NFC. What we know from the pictures is that the phone will be coming to Verizon but we are not sure about the dates or the pricing. It is speculated that it may be available next month for a price of $149 with a 2 year contract, but this is just a rumor and speculation. We just have to wait for an official word from Verizon or Motorola, keep checking with us for updates.
