Motorola XT907 visits FCC as a mid-range Motorola DROID RAZR handset
Motorola XT907 just happened to spend some time chewing the fat with the FCC. Thanks to the visit, we can tell you that the Motorola XT907 features Verizon's LTE bands (surprise, surprise) and NFC along with the usual EV-DO/CDMA radios that you would find in a Verizon smartphone.
To be fair, an FCC visit isn't always a signal of an impending launch, so just because this model got the thumbs up from the Fed doesn't mean it will be released soon. But with the 6th generation Apple iPhone expected to launch next month followed by the Motorola DROID RAZR HD as soon as the following month, we could see Big Red try to squeeze out the Motorola XT907 some time in the next few weeks in the late August-early September period. It might be a bit tardy, but that time period might help a lower priced mid-range Motorola DROID RAZR model command some of the back-to-school smartphone sales.

Moto should only put its best phones on carriers and put something like this on pre-paid networks. But since it will come to Verizon, the price better be free w/ contract (since the Atrix HD is going for $99 on AT&T) since the ATRIX HD is a high end device. Plus I thought if the model number had a "9" it meant it was the top of the line.

well it may not be too bad. maybe just the incremental upgrade over the Razr hence why i called it the Razr 2.

Well I guess we'll know when the specs are released. But if it was a RAZR upgrade wouldn't the RAZR HD be pointless?

it would just be the smaller upgrade. the Razr HD will be the big MAXX daddy Flagship device and this will fit right in the original Droid Razr's footsteps.

size difference, pricing, that kind of stuff.

i'm thinking 1.2GHz S4, 4.3" qHD Colorboost Display, 8MP Camera...

This is the mid-range Razr, so I certainly hope the Razr HD goes past the rumored specs... With an S4 Pro processor and 2 GB of RAM, instead of the S4 (no Pro) and 1 GB RAM that's been reported lately. Honestly, I'm still hoping the Razr HD will have the OMAP 5, I know they'll probably put it in the next Nexus (if Moto makes it), but it'll be a nice surprise if the Razr HD were to have it.
