Motorola is rumored to be preparing to launch a smartphone that features an edge-to-edge display. The bezel-less display would help the Google-owned company to stand out as no other manufacturer offers such technology yet in the United States.
This report comes from Bloomberg, which, unfortunately, does not specify which smartphone will have this feature. It is, however, speculated that the device mentioned is the Motorola Droid RAZR HD.
The Motorola Droid RAZR HD is believed to have a 4.6-inch High Definition display with the capability to play 720p content. It could sport a a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, a Kevlar back, and a 2530 mAh battery. It is likewise expected to offer 4G LTE connectivity and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. Motorola could launch it with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The device will target the high-end segment.
Interestingly, however, the edge-to-edge screen, which could be one of the device’s main selling points, had not been included in the list of specifications that the smartphone could carry. In addition, said feature was absent in the Youtube video that reportedly showcased the Droid RAZR HD. The video had already been removed on the website as per Motorola’s request. Thus, if the leaked specifications and video are correct, there could be a possibility that the bezel-less smartphone is another device that Motorola is still keeping away from the media.
Meanwhile, Motorola and Verizon have sent out invitations for an event that is scheduled to take place on September 5th in New York. The event simply says, “Motorola. On Display. Join us for the day’s main event.” The mention of the display could be hinting at the unveiling of the new bezel-less smartphone.
Apart from the Motorola Droid RAZR HD, the Google-owned company is also preparing a smartphone for the mid-range segment called the Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE. There is a chance that this smartphone will be launched alongside the one with the edge-to-edge display during the Motorola and Verizon event.
