Two new pictures of the DROID RAZR HD leak out
Thanks to a daring poster over at Droid Forums, we now have our clearest idea yet of what Motorola’s next lead DROID device will look like. The DROID RAZR HD will come with an entire backing of Kevlar which wraps around the phone and disappears into the side of the device. Given how popular the premium material has proven and the cleaner lines that result this looks like a winning design choice.

On the front side, along with confirmation of the name, we see the large 720p HD screen with onscreen navigation keys. The corners have a bit of a soft angle to them – reminiscent of the corners seen in the original DROID RAZR, but less obvious at first glance.

The device passed through the FCC last week so hopefully the launch won’t be too far off. During its government checkup it was rocking a 2,530 mAH battery that is smaller than the RAZR MAXX, but is still quite generous; with the S4 chipset it should be plenty to get users through a full day of use. The only apparent downside is that the device has Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich installed, rather than Jelly Bean. This isn’t much of a surprise – manufacturers generally aren’t able to change up the OS in the last few weeks before shipping a product. We would hope for a swift upgrade to the latest version of Android sometime this fall though.

What do you guys think? Anyone holding out for this device?
