Motorola DROID RAZR is real, and allegedly sports a qHD Super AMOLED screen, Kevlar chassis

Motorola DROID RAZR is real, and allegedly sports a qHD Super AMOLED screen, Kevlar chassis
More information leaked about the handset that might carry Motorola's iconic RAZR brand, and take a place in Verizon's DROID line. Sources say that Motorola DROID RAZR has been listed as the name of the leaked phone in the Settings menu.

The rumored specs are a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera capable of Full HD video recording and "HD" front-facing camera. The real kicker are the 4G LTE connectivity and the 4.3" qHD screen, though, which remind us of the DROID BIONIC specs. Interestingly enough, the leak claims it is a 540x960 pixels Super AMOLED screen. Splash-resistant Kevlar chassis rounds up this intriguing handset for Motorola, which is rumored to appear in time for the holiday shopping season, so it is not only going to be the title's attraction.

Samsung recently opened a new AMOLED factory, so shortages of this screen technology should be a thing of the past for companies which Samsung is willing to sell to, but it will be pretty surprising to see a non-Samsung device carrying a Super AMOLED display nonetheless. It will also be interesting to know for certain what silicon ticks inside the DROID RAZR, if that's what it ends up being named - Motorola uses TI's OMAP family usually. 

One supposedly extremely thin handset leaked before as the Motorola DROID HD, and actually RAZR could very well end up to be the retail name, counting on fans' nostalgia. 

With the thinnest smartphones hitting the sub-0.3" mark now, it will be unnerving to slap the RAZR brand on it, though, so it must at least be the thinnest smart handset of Motorola.

I know, that's why this is so funny. The phone just came out this month and it's replacement is coming out in 2 more.

The Razr and Droid are two revolutionary names. They should make this a phone that marks in history again. what about a 13 megapixel, full hd screen, 1.5 ghz quadcore or sumthng like that. sounds lame if it's gonna be outdated all over again.

I think it looks clunky in both the leak and this render. Sure, the octagonal shape is distinctive, but it's not pretty.

Android phones always get outdated in a short period of time. Learn to love what you have. Ppus you have the sgs2 already. This will basically be the sgs2 on moto except it wont have an exynos and will have lte. So very simmilar to the sgs2 on tmobile. I say lte>exynos

That works fine for you if you are in an LTE area but what good is it to me who won't have LTE for 2 freaking years? Yes I'll pass on an super fast and snappy exynos processor and buy a phone now with LTE and wait two years so I can enjoy it. No thanks lol

For you it may suck. Because your cellular coverage life sucks. But for us that are part of the "new world" this phone rocks.

on a side note:

Bionic is in the past as a choice for me. Now it will be a tough battle between this Droid Razr and Droid Prime

Amoled + Moto + LTE = Awesomeness

You act like Wifi is sacred and nowhere to be found. Wifi works just as fine for me because when I actually do use my phone for a long period of time it's after work at home and obviously I am going to use my wifi.

There are still a lot of areas that don't have LTE and you know it. Good for you for having LTE. Once I finally get LTE in my area, by all means I'll jump right on it but 3G does fine for me for now and like I said, I have WIFI almost everywhere. At home and at work which is where I mostly am at.

Good point about wifi and not having lte. I just feel the ti omap is more then enough right for almost everyone. If you do have lte then this phone is better then the sgs2. Of course then there is no best phone just best phone for you.

you're admitting this is better than a GSII? wow, 2 XOOM rumors, the Droid RAZR gets reveled and RORY admits a Motorola phone is better than the Galaxy S II. what a day for Moto.

If this has the new processor with ICS and LTE, then who can argue?

Examples of where you cant have wifi: if your trying to stream videos while you in a car or a bus. Stream music play lists while your driving. If you go to a friends house that doesn't have a wifi. If you go to a bar (I don't know of a bar that will give you their network key). Waiting in line in a bank...While eating at a restaurant or waiting for you food to come. Among a plethora of other situations where wifi isn't available and faster internet than 3g or 3.5g(wimax, hspa+) would be very convenient.

I know your conforming to whats available to you, but you cant discredit the usefulness of having LTE. I don't have access to wifi at my work ;(

I wasn't trying to discredit LTE at all. I know it may have seemed like that but I def see your point where LTE is useful and completely out beats Wifi. If I had LTE in my area(mind you there is LTE in 3 different locations just shy of 30 miles from me UGH) I would be right with you on that.

My friend made a very good point to me not too long ago that really got me thinking. He bought the Thunderbolt on it's launch day and has had it since. Now don't get me wrong, it's a decent phone but when he sees phones like The Sensation, EVO 3D, SGS2, etc etc he pointed out the fact that we don't have LTE and he wishes he would have just waited and kept his Droid X. Both are similar in specs for the most part but the Droid X has better battery life(mostly because of the Thunderbolt's very small battery) and the fact that he paid 250 for the Thunderbolt. Where now there are Dual core phones WITH LTE coming on shortly, he def should have waited.

But then again, it's always a waiting game isnt it? People waited for the SGS2 but Prime is coming out, people waited for the Bionic but the Droid RAZR is coming out.

I think people go with what they like, if you got the bionic this phone should not make you wake up every night in regret. If you waited for the S2 then the prime shouldn't be something to loose sleep over just yet, I think it's not the companies that outdate the devices but rather the users that minimize what they have

2 years sound very optimistic since you moved to Sprint, I'd never switch carriers just for a handset, sorry but that's dumb

just saying you should before you screw yourself up. this Droid RAZR is a prefect example of why you shouldn't switch carriers for a phone.

it shouldn't take that long, LTE is actually rolling out faster than initially planned. Current plans call for coverage of 2/3 of the current 3g footprint by the middle of next year and all of it by the end of 2013. But the number of markets is already higher than was expected to be covered by years end, so anything can change.

By the time everyone else is done rolling out their LTE Verizon will be rolling out LTE Advanced.

That is why I bought it out right at best buy! 30 days to see if I like??? Or if something new makes me want it? But, with Moto release date, do kind or change don't they. ALOT!

But as for the Bionic i bought, I like so for. Only bug so far is the same thing i had with the Thrive. It gets stuck in sleep mode and i have to pull the battery to fix it. Happens 1 or 2 times a day. Planning to return it.

I'm waiting for the true spec list on the prime first.
