Motorola DROID RAZR specs leak out: thinnest LTE phone, “faster than the iPhone 4S”

Motorola DROID RAZR specs leak out: thinnest LTE phone, “faster than the iPhone 4S”
The Motorola DROID RAZR has only appeared in leaks and rumors, but it's a captivating device and now rumors claim to know its main highlights including the fact that it “will be faster than the iPhone 4S” and the thinnest LTE phone to date.

But with no further ado, here is what BGR has heard about the Motorola DROID RAZR specs: 

  • Thinner and “faster than the iPhone 4S”,
  • 1GB of RAM,
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor,
  • 4G LTE, to be the thinnest LTE phone,
  • 4.3-inch screen.

An impressive spec sheet, but the main thing about the RAZR is said to be the quality build. Motorola allegedly markets the device as “faster, thinner, smarter, stronger.”

A video about a device unveiling coming October 18th was posted by Moto earler we have all reasons to believe it was about the RAZR. For once, a razor was showed in the video and some reinforced materials, which were previously said to be a feature of the new phone. How do you like what you see so far?

Another verizon rumor going around. Droid X OG is to be discontinued, and people that still have the phone will have the option to upgrade early, but only for this phone. Droid X owners should be happy, if this is true.

RThis is nothing SPECIAL.. Verizon always has devices arrive late to the party. These specs honestly have been first day one in January through June of 2011 IE EVO 3D and SAMSUNG GALAXY S2. Now better speced devices are arriving in the ladder part of 2011 now October and into 2012 IE HTC AMAZE 4G, SAMSUNG GALAXY NEXUS.. Great job as always verizon with there OVER PRICED DEVICES.

you idiot. this phone is faster than everything but the Prime and the GSII. this leaves the EVO 3D in the dust in terms of power.

The EVO 3D is crippled by it's own UI. Sense is very pretty and adds a lot of awesome widgets and functions but in the end it is such a power and memory hog, it slows down like crazy. That's why when you compare the SGS2 on T-Mobile against the HTC Amaze, the SGS2 blows it away. Despite having the same processor and same amount of ram.

If the leaked photos are correct, the RAZR will have the latest version of Blur. While not a bad thing, I for one wish it would have stock android. For two reasons, there hasn't been a high end stock android phone on Verizon since the very first Droid and two it will make the upgrade to ICS that much easier. Now I don't know what phones will get the ICS upgrade or at least in a reasonable amount of time. It's obvious its going to be reserved for the Nexus Prime(Galaxy Prime, Galaxy Nexus, whatever lol) for some time and rightfully so. I am assuming then the Nexus S will get it followed by the SGS2 and hopefully at the same amount of time the RAZR will get the upgrade as well. The Bionic should have been a great phone but it took way too long to be released and the RAZR will just destroy it.

i doubt the Galaxy S II will get it before the Bionic. going by the traditional update initiative Motorola updates their devices much faster than Samsung and the OMAP4430 the Bionic uses is already supported by ICS. we don't know if it will come out supporting Exynos and if not how long it will take to gain support.

No way the RAZR doesn't get an ICS upgrade. Moto is pretty good about updates these days, as opposed to Sammy which is probably the slowest at updates. Goog will be on top of this, though, I'm sure. I have a real issue with Sammy after the GPS fiasco on the Galaxy S. It still doesn't work. Hopefully Goog will be involved and exert influence if there's a problem.

sounds COOOOL

Why compare it to the iphones 4s. My Atrix is faster than it in any possible way. I do have to say its pretty smooth scrolling left to right, but that's because it does not have live wall papers or customizable widgets . The only option they have are does small blocky apps. It would be ridiculous not to be super smooth with nothing running on the back ground.

I've had the Droid1, Incredible, and Incredible 2.... so been an Android fanatic since Dec. 2009 (have a Xoom WiFi as well and love it). I have 2 upgrades on my Verizon account available (had, actually), so today I decided to step into the world of iOS for the VERY first time. I have a 120gb iPod classic that stays in my car at all times, have never owned any iOS device in my life. I love Android -- absolutely love it, and I'm gripped with anticipation over the Nexus Prime. That being said, I jumped in line at 7am this morning to grab an iPhone 4s. It's faster than any Android phone I've touched by a mile. I'm an employee at an indirect Verizon store, so I've played with everything from the Samsung Gem, LG Vortex, HTC Thunderbolt, Sammy Charge, Moto Bionic... you name it, I've spent hours on it. I liked my Incredible 2 better than an iPhone 4 with iOS5 on it because it was slow and choppy when I was streaming Google Music via Safari, installing an app from the App Store, and receiving push notifications. The A5 in the iPhone 4s makes a HUGE difference. I consider myself to be as impartial as they come -- I've spent over $150 on Android apps/supporting my favorite developers on xda for all the effort they produce, whether it's with MIUI, CM7, or any other tweak I've benefitted from. iOS5 on the 4s is simply more complete than Android in its present state. I've had it for 11 hours exactly, at the time of this post, and I'm blown away. At 8am this morning, my plan was to get the 4s, use it until the Nexus Prime comes out, then sell it and buy the Prime at full retail w/o using my other upgrade. Now.... I think I'll be keeping my iPhone 4s and evaluating the Prime when it's announced in Hong Kong Oct. 19.

So, you havent used the Atrix 4g, you've been using phones from last year, buddy of course. I have played with the bionic, but it didnt like the experience, a bit laggy in places, compared to my Atrix. Then i used the Gs2 froma friend of mine, and it was so incridibly smooth, just as i finsihed playing with my cousin got the iphone 4s just arived and i gotta say it was smooth, but like i said there is no "true" "multitasking" like android, so there is no reason for it to be laggy. Android phones that recently came out really do multitasking, and keep things running in background, so after a while you will notce a bit of lag. IOS is just too simple and boring, so the dual core processor isnt really doing much, except for when playing games or surfing the internet for long while.

the Atrix feels faster than the Bionic? LOFL! i own the Bionic and used the Atrix, Froyo & Gingerbread extensively being that i recommended it to my ex's dad since he's on AT&T. the Bionic's Interface feels MUCH more refined than what's on the Atrix.

72. What? unregistered

I do like the interface on the bionic, i actually hope there is an update to the atrix to get this version of blur, its just when i used the bionic, in the vzw store, it didnt respong as smooth as i saw in videos, i could be completely mistaken maybe because it is exposed to dozens of people a day.

73. Thump3rDX17

i think that version is optimized for phones with OMAP processors because the Atrix 2 has it and it has an OMAP processor. all the Tegra II Motos seem to get that version that's on the Atrix. yeah, my Bionic and my Droid 3 feel great. it must've been the demo. i've even seen an Epic 4G Touch demo lag up before.

77. What? unregistered

Yeah , the new version of blur is pretty neat. Apparently is for tiomap phones, I do like the new UI in the Atrix is pretty nice but the new one just looks so fluent.

AN Android with quality build ? Well...good, very good news. I'm sincere, that's one of the only things I dislike in Android phones today : no phone, absolutely no phone, could give me the impression of having a real High-end device. Years ago, when smartphones did not exist spread everywhere, you had many really good looking and good build feature phones. You had the impression of having a pretty thing, not just something with power in his body... I especially think to...yes the razr of Motorola...

Wish other Smartphone companies would stop comparing themselves to the iPhone. Most of these devices stand up fine on their own. This bad boy is a possibility, depending when the release date is. Like to wait long enough on phones for user write-ups to help me decide. But this guy sounds really, really promising.

Thanks, Motorola for pushing my 3 week old Droid Bionic towards obsolescence. How about you concentrate on making one or two bad ass phones per year instead of a bunch with incremental improvements. If you did that, then maybe my phone wouldn't have so many bugs.

Won't be any faster if it has Android.

thats because iphone doesn't use any real processing power unless your playing a game or on internet. android's os isnt a glorified app launcher like ios. it actually has to work. it does stuff like flash,live wallpapers, actual customizable settings, a lot more work than the iphone does

jroc-- In your sentence above--internet speeds, cpu, gpu? I already knew the gpu on the 4S was gonna be a beast. Unless the RAZR has the same gpu or a better one I wonder what they mean by faster. They mean faster by the Razr's (dual core 1.2 ghz cpu) coupled to a 4G LTE network, with 1gb of if that's not faster than the iphone 4S, dual core 1.0 ghz cpu, with 512 mb of ram, coupled to all three carriers 3G network, then this question of faster is not a question.... LTE will always be faster than 3G, even without dual core and cpu size.
