As widely predicted, Motorola has unveiled no less than three spanking new Droid Razr smartphones – the Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and Razr M – in front of a packed crowd in New York’s Gotham Hall. No sign of Bane, unfortunately.
Details are still a little murky at this early stage, but from what we can garner from the press release, the three Razr smartphones share the majority of their specs. Possibly.
We’ll start with the recently leaked Motorola Droid Razr M. It’s the smallest of the bunch, with a 4.3in Super AMOLED Advanced display - notable for being “edge-to-edge”.
It’s shorter and narrower than the original Motorola Droid Razr, making the Droid Razr M “the most compact 4.3-inch 4G LTE smartphone”. It offers a relatively modest 8GB internal storage (stay tuned…).
Next up, one of the worst kept secrets in the industry: the Motorola Droid Razr HD. It has a 4.7in Super AMOLED HD display with “78% more pixels” (presumably compared to the original), a 2,500mAh battery, and 16GB internal storage.
Finally, there’s the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD. It’s much the same phone as the Motorola Droid Razr HD, ‘cept it packs a 3,300mAh battery and 32GB internal storage.
The Motorola Droid Razr Maxx HD offers 32 hours on a single charge under “normal use”, or 13 hours of straight video. Nice.
Shared specs (on the Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and Razr M – we think) include 4G LTE, NFC (Near Field Communication), an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video capture, some sort of front-facing shooter, Gorilla Glass, Kevlar fiber, and a water-repellent coating. Oh, and a micro SD slot. Phew.
The Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD pack dual-core Snapdragon S4 processors clocked at 1.5GHz with 1GB of RAM, though it’s not clear if that applies to the Droid Razr M. EDIT: yep, sounds like it. That's good.
Somewhat disappointingly, it's Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on all three, but Motorola promises an update to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) "by end of 2012". Heck, if Google-owned Motorola can't launch new handsets with Jelly Bean...
The Motorola Droid Razr M will be available from next week (September 13) on Verizon, while the Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD will follow “before the holidays”.
It’s not clear which of the three will make it to the UK, though Motorola has a “Let us take you to the edge” event scheduled for September 18.
Cheers to Pocket-lint for the picture.
