Fans of Motorola’s DROID RAZR lineup will be excited to hear that the upcoming Motorola DROID RAZR HD is shaping up to be an impressive handset. Over the past few days new details have emerged, confirming that the DROID RAZR HD will feature an 1196 x 720 HD display, Qualcomm’s 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor with an Adreno 225 GPU and a Kevlar back panel similar to its RAZR siblings.
According to DROID-Life, the thickness of the Motorola DROID RAZR HD will be somewhere between that of the original DROID RAZR and the RAZR MAXX, which features a 3,300 mAh battery. The assumption is that Motorola will equip the RAZR HD with a 2,200 – 2,500 mAh battery, giving users at least a full day’s worth of battery life under heavy use.
Those who passed on the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX due to performance concerns should be ecstatic to hear that the 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor inside the upcoming DROID RAZR HD more than doubles the 28.1 FPS NenaMark2 scores produced by its predecessors. We may only have one NenaMark2 benchmark score to go on, but at 59.1 FPS the DROID RAZR HD stands in contention with the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III.
The launch date of the Motorola DROID RAZR HD might not be right around the corner, but speculation is that the phone should show up on Verizon’s 4G network in August.
What do you think of Motorola’s upcoming flagship phone? Are the Motorola DROID RAZR HD rumors and leaks enticing enough to pass on the Samsung Galaxy S III?
