Rumors on the upcoming Motorola RAZR HD have come and gone, but the US-based handset manufacturer has yet to confirm the availability of the smartphone.
Several live pictures have already leaked in the wild, which indicates that the RAZR HD is real and might arrive in the market sooner than expected.
In this regard, the folks over at HotHardware
have been able to confirm through a “very reliable source” close to the matter, that Motorola Mobility plans to launch both RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD sometime in October.
However, the company may be forced to delay the release of the smartphone if it doesn’t sell enough Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX devices by that time. This means that these HD models might arrive by year’s end.
Although both handsets are reportedly shipped with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box, there’s a chance that Motorola might decide otherwise and offer the RAZR HD
and RAZR MAXX HD with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean onboard.
Motorola RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD will follow the same design line as the original RAZR model, so expect them to be equally slim and stylish.
Still, the latter will surely be a bit thicker due to the high-capacity 3300 mAh Li-Ion battery, which should provide around 17 days of standby time.
On the inside, each smartphone will be equipped with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4
processor, complemented by 1GB of RAM.
We still don’t have any details on the size of the displays, but, as the name of the smartphones suggests, both handset will feature HD (720 x 1280 pixels) capacitive touch screens.
There’s also an 8-megapixel rear photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary front-facing camera for video calls. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
