Canadian carrier Rogers revealed earlier last month plans to offer the Motorola RAZR HD LTE superphone, though it did not unveil any details on release date or pricing options.
While we still don’t have any info on the exact launch date of the RAZR HD LTE, it appears that the folks over at MobileSyrup
got their hands on a Rogers’ internal document, which confirms the phone’s price tag.
According to this document, Motorola RAZR HD LTE will be available at Rogers
for a promotional price of $99.99 CAD with a new three-year agreement.
Other pricing options offered by the carrier include: $499.99 CAD on a two-year plan and $549.99 CAD with a one-year agreement.
Customers who do not wish to commit to a long-term contract will be able to buy the RAZR HD LTE for no less than $599.99 CAD.
At first glance the no-term price might seem a bit steep, but this is Motorola’s latest Android flagship smartphone, which means it will come packed with powerful features and hardware configuration.
Unfortunately, the device will be shipped with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system onboard, though Motorola promised it would offer a Jelly Bean update to all RAZR HD LTE owners.
The phone is equipped with a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 12GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.
The 8-megapixel rear photo snapper features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, while the front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera allows users to make video calls.
Another strong point of the top-tier Android smartphone
is the large 4.7-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
Motorola also claims the high-capacity 2530 mAh Li-Ion battery offers an “all day battery performance on a single charge.”
