Verizon to launch Motorola DROID RAZR HD and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD on October 18th
pixel density. Guess what's under the hood? You got it! A dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor as the Adreno 225 GPU crunches graphics. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is a 32GB capacity microSD slot. Motorola has been working hard to improve its Achilles Heel which are its cameras. There is an 8MP shooter on back that captures video in 1080p at 30fps while the 1.3MP front-facing shooter does the usual self portraits and video chat. The DROID RAZR MAXX HD has that 3300mAh cell which goes longer this time around. The DROID RAZR HD has a perfectly good 2530m battery. Both models will launch with Android 4.0.4 installed with an upgrade to Android 4.1 scheduled.
The latest DROIDs will be the first to have a HD screen, something that long time fans of the line have been waiting patiently for. The long battery life of the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX should bring in some sales, but can either of these models compete with the Samsung Galaxy S III or the Samsung GALAXY Note II? Considering that Motorola is now a wholly owned Google subsidiary, these two might be considered late to the party and a tad underwhelming. That doesn't mean that there won't be some buyers running over to Big Red next Thursday.
