The Motorola Droid Razr HD phone is now headed for the U.S. market. The device, which is also known as the Motorola XT926, was recently spotted on the Federal Communications Commission website. This is commonly the final step for devices before they are officially announced and make their way to stores.
The agency tested the device’s 3G and 4G radios as well as its Near Field Communications capabilities. The device is said to be coming to Verizon as it is compatible with Big Red’s 4G LTE network.
From its name, it is clear that it will be sporting a High Definition screen. This display will span 4.3 inches diagonally and possibly have a 720p resolution. It is also expected to be equipped with a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with a clock speed of 1.5GHz, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a full gigabyte of RAM. The device might sport a Kevlar body and a rear camera with a 13-megapixel sensor. Many are hoping that it will have the 3300mAh battery that is also found on the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. This battery supposedly allowed the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX to outsell the popular iPhone at Verizon because of its long-lasting power.
It is still unknown when exactly the Motorola Droid Razr HD will be announced by Motorola and Verizon, especially since Verizon is still enjoying the benefits that the Samsung Galaxy S III is bringing the company. It is speculated that those interested in purchasing the device would need to wait from one to two months before the device becomes available. Verizon most likely would have to take into consideration the launch date of the upcoming iPhone which will be around September to October and launch the device either before or sometime after the iPhone arrives. The phone’s price tag is still unknown, but it should naturally be fairly competitive with the iPhone as well as other Android devices in the same market segment.
