Motorola Droid Razr M HD specs leak out, is the device real?
Specs for an alleged Motorola Droid Razr M HD have just leaked out and our anonymous source whispers some interesting details about a 4.5-inch Jelly Bean device with an HD screen and position closer to the mid-range.

As 1080p screens become the norm in high-end smartphones in 2013, devices with 720p display are logically expected to be pushed into the mid-range segment.

This rumored Motorola Droid RAZR M HD would build on the legacy of the 4.3-inch qHD RAZR M, but use a Snapdragon S4 Plus chip with a 1.5GHz dual-core Krait processor.

What seems a bit weird is that this rumor points to a whopping 3,300mAh battery on this alleged RAZR M HD. That would be good news, even too good to be true.

The whispers about this device are not backed by any image, or any other substantial proof, so definitely take this with a huge grain of salt. Still, it seems like a logical device for Motorola to release. Take a look at the expected full spec sheet:

Yup, i thought the RAZR M was good, this is even better!!! But Motorola should do something about their camera...

Google & Motorola are putting extra focus on their cameras now.

That sounds great! And yes, since Google has acquired Motorola, they should look into whatever can be improved.

S4 dual core is very good option for middle end

Considering the M is mid range and it's and S4, that's great

Dual core is fine for Jelly Bean

wait, am i mistaking something here? amazingly, making calls on this device somehow extends its battery life by like 40%?

It's standby. That means days not hours.

no quad core processor :(

This is supposed to be mid ranged, don't expect it to have quad core. And the S4 is still very good, especially for mid range

then OK for the mid range ...

if this phone is real I believe I will be selling my mid-range droid incredible! lol Back to moto i guess :)

Yeah, that might be wise lol You might get a nice little speed bump with Moto as well, without Sense.

40. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

the "slight" lag in sense that some report is mainly due to the animations and transition affects in which i found YOU CAN TURN OFF! lol No more lag at all using sense........and im only running 4.0.3 and sense 4.0 all HTC users gotta do is go in there developer options and turn off animations :) But if i were to sell my droid incredible for this it would be mainly for that huge battery (or more battery at least), HD screen, and Probably it being compact in size and form!

I never said Sense was laggy... I said it was slower than Motorola's UI. Something doesn't have to be laggy to be slow :)

43. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

o ok bro :)

another thing you can do is go to Settings > Developer Options and then scroll down and change the Window, Transition & Animator Scales from 1.0x to 0.5x. instant speed boost. i do it on everything. ;)

44. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

well i just turned them all completly off! lol things are alot faster :P

When you feel HD screens are mid-range, quad core has the rights to come down the ranks too!

How so? Nearly all early high end handsets of 2012 had HD displays and a dual core S4, why not mid range of 2013? It seems like a natural advancement, all the HTC One S was missing from being high end was the HD display. High end 2012; 720p display, dual core S4 @ 1.5 GHz, 1-2 GB RAM Mid-range 2012; qHD display, dual core S4 @ 1.2 GHz, 1 GB RAM High end 2013; 1080p display, quad core S4 Pro, 2 GB RAM Mid-range 2013; 720p display, dual core S4 @ 1.5 GHz, 1 GB RAM Seems fitting. High end of the previous year is mid-range of the next year roughly.

S4 dual JB is as fast and smooth as WP8 on the same processor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4LFVRYoBYo&feature=youtube_gdata_player

makes sense, i don't buy the battery size rumors though.

This phone is nearly identical to Razr HD, only slightly smaller body. so 3300mah may be possible. I don't see why Moto should make this when they already have Maxx HD. The difference in size/weight is very tiny.

actually it'll still be a good bit smaller. with nearly 0 bezel the screen size increase doesn't equate to a large increase in the size of the phone. this may accompany a new Moto flagship for Verizon in mid-2013 to replace the Razr HD/MAXX HD, if they're bumping up the Razr M like this they may phase out the MAXX and just have one flagship variant with a 3300mAh+ battery especially considering that their current price tiers are pretty screwed with HTC's aggressive pricing with the DNA so what i'm thinking is this, Razr M HD @ $100 with the specs listed here minus the 3300mAh battery and with the 2530mAh batteries they were using with the Razr HD, then we'll have the new flagship which i'll call the Razr HD 2 for now will be @ $200 and will probably have a 5.0" edge to edge 720p HDSA Display, an S4 Pro and a 3300mAh battery. the rest i don't much care to speculate about.
