Motorola Droid Razr M HD rumors and speculations

Motorola Droid Razr M HD rumors and speculations surfaced recently following reports that the company is planning to release a follow up of the device it has released in September last year. While we are tempted to believe Motorola Mobility is planning to release a better and more powerful device, rumors suggest only the display and battery might get a bump.

The rumor mill started on December 28th when Phone Arena published a report showing alleged specs of Droid Razr M HD from an anonymous source. Motorola has yet to confirm all rumors surrounding the new device whether or not they are true. Now let’s try to take a closer look at important factors to determine how much change the new device might bring.

Motorola Droid Razr M HD Hardware

Motorola Droid Razr M HD is believed to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chipset with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. This is the very chipset the company used for Droid Razr M so apparently we cannot expect even a slight improvement in the processing power of the new device. There is also no difference in the amount of RAM and internal memory Razr M HD might get; 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM and 32GB microSD card slot.

Motorola Droid Razr M HD Display

This time around, Motorola would like to use TFT LCD (Thin Film Transistor Liquid Crystal Display) technology for the display panel of the new device. Compared to Super AMOLED technology, this one has been proven to be more energy-efficient. There is also an undying debate which of these two technologies offers better display. Majority of male owners prefer LCD because it’s cleaner, clearer and natural. Female smartphone lovers, however, have tendency to choose AMOLED display because it’s brighter and colorful.

The screen size is believed to be a bit bigger than the previous model at 4.5 inches while featuring much higher resolution at 720 x 1280 pixels. This would give owners pixel density of up to 326ppi. The panel would still be capacitive and support multi-touch with light and proximity sensors in tow.

Motorola Droid Razr M HD Battery

A battery pack with 3300mAh power is said to be used for the new device. Instead of using Li-Ion, Motorola uses Li-Polymer battery cell this time; an indication it is trying to make the battery lasts longer. Basically, Droid Razr M HD gets a battery that is 130% larger than the previous model. There are a lot of differences between Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer batteries and if you want to know about them, we advise you to visit this article by Dan Hagopian.

Furthermore, Motorola Droid Razr M HD is believed to be released with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the native operating system, although it is upgradable to version 4.2.

Motorola Mobility has yet to issue an official statement regarding this rumor and perhaps that’s the time we can speculate on the price range. For now, these are the information we have about Droid Razr M HD and they must be taken with a pinch of salt.
