Is a Motorola RAZR HD to be released in Europe?

Is a Motorola RAZR HD to be released in Europe?
Not long after the Motorola DROID RAZR launched on Verizon last year, an international version of the smartphone called the Motorola RAZR was released too. Unlike its U.S. counterpart, the latter lacked LTE support and came with a GSM radio, but other than that, the two handsets were more or less identical. Now, it seems that the same might happen after the rumored Motorola DROID RAZR HD is unveiled, as indicated by a bunch of spy photos.

Judging by its software version, the device that you can see in the slideshow below is given the model number XT925, while the DROID RAZR HD is believed to go by the XT926 model name. Also, it runs Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and it is meant to run on Vodafone's cellular network. But what's most obvious is that the handset in the photos has a back cover with a pattern quite different from the one that we saw on those leaked DROID RAZR HD photos. Last but not least, the folks at XDA Developers claim that the pictured smartphone has an 8-megapixel camera, although the Verizon-bound DROID RAZR HD would still launch with a 13-megapixel shooter on its back.

Are we looking at the yet-unannounced Motorola RAZR HD? We aren't really sure and we won't be drawing any conclusions after only a single leak on the table. Perhaps more information on the matter will surface once Verizon and Motorola make the DROID RAZR HD official. In the meantime, feel free to drop a comment below and tell us what you think about the device's alternative pattern.

Looks pretty nice imo. If Moto really wants to sell a lot of their high end phones, release them on all four carriers in the US and sell it for a reasonable price overseas.

I hope that's not it... The design is terrible. I hope this is just like the leaked Galaxy S III pics, because both this and the GS3 leaks were/are ugly, and hopefully this will look better at launch like the GS3 did. Also, this should come with Jellybean pre-installed, they probably just have ICS on it for testing, and Jellybean will be on it when it releases, or at least I would wish it were that way. If this has the design of the previously leaked pics, 2 GB of RAM, Jellybean at launch, and the OMAP5 processor, I will almost certainly get this unlocked. It's come down to this, or the next Nexus (Nexi?) Pull through Motorola.

i believe it will look mostly like this but a little different. this is probably just a roughed up pre-production unit.

Maybe device will be not bad, but pattern doesn't look good. Let's hope that those leaks are fake or at least Motorola will change design. Good luck for Motorola. :)

Yeah, hopefully this is like the GS3 picture leaks. Fake. I like the original leaked Razr HD pics better. Where the Kevlar pattern was like an abundance of V's running down the entire back of the device

the US version may have the Kevlar and the International Razr HD will have this design.

Other pictures have had other patterns. So this is probably not the right one. I like the striped pattern on my razr, it looks much nicer than that.

I tell you, if there was an award for the ugliest phones, Moto would win every year; they go out of their way to make the most eye soring devices.

I actually prefer the Atrix HD's design. It looks 100x better.

Don't worry, this is probably just one of those leaked designs that aren't actually the real thing. Like with the GS3, there were a lot of leaked designs, but none of them looked anything like the finished product.

I know, the thing is I love how the RAZR and Atrix HD look and I hope the RAZR HD has the same design.

What you think, when it will be released, your guessings? :)

Moto doesn't have a lot of time to act so i think it'll be announced any day now and probably launched between the end of the month and mid-September.
