Motorola DROID RAZR HD to come with a 2,530mAh battery

Motorola DROID RAZR HD to come with a 2,530mAh battery
The pieces of the Motorola DROID RAZR HD puzzle are slowly coming together as the smartphone's FCC filing has revealed what kind of battery life we might expect from the device. It looks like the handset maker has not gone for that beastly 3,300mAh battery that we have on the DROID RAZR MAXX, but is not sticking to the DROID RAZR's 1780mAh cell either.

There will be a 2,530mAh battery under the Motorola DROID RAZR HD back cover, as stated in one of the documents in the smartphone's FCC filing. Sure, it won't be of the removable kind, but that shouldn't be a dealbreaker for most users. After all, such charge capacity should suffice to last you through a day of heavy usage, especially if the processor inside the device is not too much of a battery hog.

If rumors are to be trusted, the Motorola DROID RAZR HD will have a display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels, hence the HD in its moniker. Its exact size, however, remains unknown at this time. We are also expecting to see a 13-megapixel camera on its back. With a smartphone of this class, LTE connectivity is a given, and we can't imagine it running anything older than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. 

Further Motorola DROID RAZR HD specs are still unclear, but we expect the rumor mill to make up for the missing information. Details such as supposed release date and pricing are also a mystery for now.

seems silly to me to not have the maxx battery in it unless they're going to have a rar hd maxx too. the battery they're putting in the HD isnt bad but come on...

They def could have done it but perhaps they designed the phone to be sleek and slim. I mean sure they could also put 5000mah but it'll be thick as a brick.

i agree and then we have to remember that NFC is apart of the equation now too.

Please put a better camera could compete with iPhone 4S and SSG3.

The Moto Razr's in mainland China already come with 13MP cameras. The bad news is US consumers don't get the cutting edge technology when it comes to cell phones.

More MP doesn't necessarily mean better camera, its the type of lens used.

It's pretty funny that the cases for the Motorola Atrix HD have a cardboard phone cutout. It says 13mp camera. Maybe they will look like the same devices.

I'm perfectly happy with that battery. It's larger than the SGSIII and the battery life in that phone is pretty good.

The battery in the Droid Razr has provided decent battery life so I'm guessing this should be quite nice when combined with the S4 SoC.

I agree from all the leaks I've seen the DROID RAZR HD will be in the same league as the SIII and One X.

i don't really hold the One X as high as the SIII...but i do with the Razr HD!

please lets be honest...if these specs hold up then this phone will be better than both phones, in design and performance... So it looks like moto will have the photon 4g lte, the atrix hd, and now the droid razr hd.....Moto is outdoing companies for sure!

Moto is NOT out doing companies. They have hung in there and have put up a fight. The RAZR got them in a good position, and this RAZR HD will surely put them in the game for a while, but PLEASE "Moto is out doing companies"? The first MotoDroid was not that good just put them on the Map since it was the 1st Verizon Android. Does anyone remember AT&T 1st Android? The crappy backflip? Even Sprints Photon is horrible (I owned it) The RAZR familiy will finally give them a good name, and looks like HTC will sit the next round out since they dont have much money to invest. It looks like MOTO is in a good position for the Holidays.

it seems to me like they're out doing most companies. they're second only to Samsung in the Android Space. Verizon has always been blessed with Motorola's very best devices. the Backflip really wasn't very good but eventually AT&T got the Atrix series which is pretty solid and the Photon was Sprint's second best device last year.

Sorry I work for Sprint and the Photon was not succesful at all. I actually bought it, horrible display, terrible camera, bad battery life, the list goes on. I returned it after 3 days. The Admiral was also a failure, So was the Titanium, and the i1. None of their phones did well for Sprint. I think the Photon Q addresses most of the things everyone hated bout the original Photon. Lets just hope that its got RAZR specs and quality and NO MOTOblur, and MAYBE then they will be behind Samsung, but for now its unlclear if they are better than HTC

most Sprint customers i talk to hold the Photon in a high regard so maybe it was just your area. it's definitely a fantastic upgrade from the original Photon and spec-wise it's better than the Razr and of course it'll have that superb Moto build quality but i don't think it'll hold up to the Razr there being that it's not a Flagship device. Motorola's UI w/ ICS and even right before ICS was actually alright, you just wouldn't know because no device on Sprint has ever had any of Moto's recent User Interfaces. they're definitely better than HTC. i put Moto second only to Samsung even though i like Moto more.

Considering how late they're entering the game, it had better be at least on par with the One X and SIII. I'm sure Motorola doesn't want another Bionic situation on their hands, where they're forced to replace their flagship within months. I hope for their sake that it's not just an Atrix HD with a bigger battery and camera.

From what I've seen there is a good chance the RAZR HD will actually be better that the SIII. It's a shame that most likely it will be a Verizon exclusive.

well it did take them like 9 months longer than expected to get that original intended flagship out for sale so...yeah messy situation And I figure an Atrix HD with a bigger battery and camera is exactly what it is. Really how could it be anything else? And I'm not seeing a problem with that either...other than the camera part. No matter what the megapixel count though, I'm expecting that camera to not be very good.

A bump in RAM (1.5-2GB) along with the increased battery life and camera would make for a reasonable upgrade from the Atrix HD, and I'm not expecting much more than that. While it looks like Moto's dropped the ball in the camera department recently, it's because they have used virtually the same sensor from the OG Photon through the Atrix HD (if Aaron from PhoneDog is to be believed.) Hopefully the new 13Mpx camera will be an improvement.

i do expect it to be more. Motorola and Verizon's relationship just runs that deep. i expect the Razr HD to be bigger with a better camera and a bigger battery and a completely different design than the Atrix HD.

I bet it will look like this, hopefully with a 4.8" screen.http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Motorola-DROID-Fighter_id6996

WHY NOT??? the only thing wrong with the atrix hd IS THE BATTERY! and its not even that bad anyway but still not as great as this phone....so what are you talking about you hope this phone isnt just another atrix hd with bigger battery??

Because even the Atrix HD was maddeningly late to the current-gen Android party. By the time it launched, the GSIII had heen out over a month (internationally) and the One X even longer. Samsung and HTC are already moving on to bigger and better things, and it wouldn't be in Motorola's best interest to launch a GSIII/One X competitor a mere month or so before their competition's successors are already being launched. That's why Motorola really needs to impress, because they've been scheming for so long with nothing to show-up the current competition... so far.

"Samsung and HTC are already moving on to bigger and better things" what are they possibly going to make that is better than what they have now?? The Razr HD will not only have a wayy better battery life but can also possibly have a better camera (possibly) a S4 krait chip, and an HD screen....But besides Moto releasing this monster, it already has the Atrix HD out and the Photon 4g lte is on its way as well!! I think moto is doing MORE than enough and people like you are why Great companies get labled as underrated....

HTC 6435, HTC One X+, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, LG Eclipse, LG E970, just to name a few forthcoming models (rumored for September-October). With the exception of the One X+, all of these will be packing processors along the lines of a Quad-core Krait with an Adreno 320 and 1080p screens. I can't speak to battery life, but they'd be remiss if they didn't put at least 2500 mAh into each of them.

i don't think these successors you speak of are coming as soon as you think and besides maybe Motorola is working on a Nexus and this is them putting stock into it.
