Motorola and Verizon to hold September 5th event possibly related to Motorola DROID RAZR HD
Circle September 5th on your calendar. We have just received an invitation for an event on that date being held by Motorola and Verizon in the Big Apple. Now, we can think of one device that could be the guest of honor and we're sure that the Motorola DROID RAZR HD came to your mind as well. Considering that the invite was topped by the phrase "Motorola. On Display," we feel very confident that this will be the day that the long awaited new Motorola flagship is unveiled.

What we are looking forward to seeing is a 4.6 inch LCD display with resolution of 720 x 1280, producing a pixel density of 319ppi. The hardest working processor in show business, the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960, is said to be under the hood with 1GB of RAM. There will be a microSD slot on the unit along with an 8MP camera on back and another shooter in front. With LTE connectivity, the 2530mAh battery might leave the lights on all day, and then some. And Android 4.0.4 will be installed out of the box.

Should the event introduce the Motorola DROID RAZR HD, we're sure to find out the precise launch date and how Verizon plans on pricing this beast. As usual, any decision on price for the new model will affect the rest of the Motorola DROID RAZR line at Verizon. And the date of the announcement is interesting because it is the same day that Nokia is expected to introduce its first two Windows Phone 8 handsets and is also exactly one week before the wraps are expected to be taken off the 6th generation Apple iPhone.

They should have released the RAZR HD over a month ago. Now that my SGS3 bootloader is unlocked, and the battery in the HD is said to be 2500mah, I don't want it any more.

I agree with you completely. The specs of this phone don't have anything over the s3. And thats not me being a Samsung fanboy because I love Moto. I just feel that this device should have 2 gigs of ram and Jelly Bean to really make it's self stand out over the competition that is currently out.

if what we know is true it just rules out that specs won't be how it stands out and besides it's plenty powerful and has a nice sized battery, I'd take this over the similarly spec'd Galaxy S II because of the typical Motorola advantages that I've grown accustomed to.

I can definitely see your perspective. I just think this may be a tough sell for most. It's way late to the party considering it may not release until October. By then the quad core s4 phones may be coming out. I know people like the build quality of the recent Motorolas but I'd argue the one x on at&t and especially the EVO LTE on sprint can match this new razr spec for spec basically, have comparable build quality, and were released in the spring. Being released on Verizon gives the razr a bit of an advantage though since the s3 is the only real android competition. I'm interested to see how well this sells just because there are a lot of well informed consumers out there that will realize that there were phones exactly like this out months ago from different companies and carriers. And with some really more advanced stuff on the horizon.

Yeah, 2Gb of RAM + true LCD along with JB and the rest of the high end specs would have been a compelling value proposition if it had been released a month ago. But September? We don't even know if it will ship in September.... A day late and a dollar short, IMO.

If you want superior design and a near stock ICS OS with similar specs. This is the device for you. But Motorola still can't compete with Samsungs camera and I couldnt go without a removeable battery.

I thought the same thing about the removable battery until I got the Razr Maxx. I've had it for three months and it's only frozen once - and the force restart by pressing Pwr + Vol Dwn worked just fine. Now I don't mind it.

"I couldnt go without a removeable battery." Seconded. I like Moto's build quality way better than Samsung's and prefer the closer-to-stock platform. But for me, no swappable battery (or complete power-down reboots), no $$$.

Why not 2GB ram! Why not 400ppi Why not Quad-core clocked at 1.8Ghz Why Motorola.....!? Was it asking to much? Why not Jelly-bean? Another let down by MOTO!

4. wendygarett unregistered

Lol your demand is quite high The only thing I agree your statement is the jelly bean


Posts: 4851; Member since: Apr 13, 2012

Wendy its not high, its above standard. Just like when u buy a car you have options, when you buy a PC or a Labtop you can configure, but its a shame the mobile industy dosen't allow this....! How sad!

Android users always looks for high-end specs....! I have a S3 QC rooted and overclocked CPU at 1.8 along with overclocked GPU and clocked voltage. But its still not enough.....

How am I being a TROLL! Explain?

I'm looking forward to buying this when released. But don't know what Chip will be for the European. Will be selling the S2.

2 gigs and Jelly Bean are my only complaints. The display on it is great but there isn't much excuse to not ship with Jelly Bean and more ram.

I agree with the 2 GB RAM and JB, but the 400 ppi and 1.8 GHz quad core is asking too much. At MOST we might see a dual-core S4 Pro, and 2 GB RAM in the Razr HD, along with JB out of the box and a 720p display. That 1.8 GHz processor and 400 ppi would just kill battery life.

For MOTOROLA anything is possible for them. If they can produce 3500mah battery, why can't they make one with 4000mah, the public will be more than happy to thro that extra £50 for the sake of it.

More cores, higher frequency less necessary if running the same tasks, it'll just be a battery vampire. Like how a V8 engine can rev to a lower speed and make as much, if not more, power than an engine of an I-4 configuration. (or any other metaphor you might understand)

But when browsing on the internet on the S3 it takes 15 seconds to load Phonearena website, now with those specs it would take around 7 to 9 seconds. its all about browsing speed, not about the apps. And also everything on the phone will be loading super fast, which now it's zippy! A big major differences!!!!!

Is there any chance asking MOTO to make a custom phone with MPQ8064....

it's most certainly the Razr HD and we might even get to catch a glimpse of the Droid Razr 2 there. 5th circled! ;D

until they drop a nexus device, I'm not interested. This phone seems boring and like yesterday's news. Its just not quite good enough.(and I'd even qualify myself as a motor fan boy considering 4 of my last 5 devices were Motorola.)
