The 4G LTE logo on the back of the phone tells us that the Motorola DROID 4 will indeed have 4G connectivity. The other expected specs include a 4 inch qHD screen which matches the screen on the Motorola DROID 3. Under the hood will be a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, slightly faster than the previous models' 1GHz dual-core processor. With its 1GB of RAM double the 512MB on the DROID 3, the DROID 4 will have an easier time with multitasking and with the general responsiveness of the unit. The 16GB of native storage is the same as found in the previous Motorola DROID as is the 8MP camera capturing 1080p video. The front facing camera is improved to HD for sharper video chat and self portraits. The 1540mAh battery found in the DROID 3 is replaced with a 1785mAh cell.
The Motorola DROID series will always have a place in the heart of many Verizon customers as the original generation model gave them a handset that could compete with the Apple iPhone before Big Red was able to offer Apple's touchscreen handset. It seems so long ago now that the DROID 4 is coming, but the first Android 2.0 powered handset was so different from anything that Verizon customers had seen before (consider the carrier's previous iPhone killers like the LG Voyager and the BlackBerry Storm). It is hard to believe that it was only two years ago that the DROID was named Time Magazine's Gadget of The Year, beating out the Apple iPhone 3GS.
