China Gets Interesting Motorola RAZR Variants, Including One With 720p Display

Popping up at Weibo today are some interesting China-bound Motorola RAZR variants. The first is a device that takes a lot of design cues from the DROID X and X2, though its chassis does differ a beat from those devices. They’re calling it the XT928 and it looks like it has a 13 megapixel shooter, though will be the same as the Motorola RAZR in processor and display and it may even make its way stateside as the DROID X3.

The other one, the MT917, shakes things up a bit. It takes its design cues from the original RAZR, but has a 4.5 inch 720p HD display. I must say I wouldn’t have minded that version of the device on Verizon instead of the original (though the original is no less good). It also has the 13 megapixel camera that the XT928 has. Would any of you be interested in one of these variants instead of the original? [Meibo via Engadget]

    I really like the middle one. Curvy compared to our RAZR, better camera, better display, two lights. I would actually buy that. Instead I’m waiting for the nexus since we didn’t get it. And why the hell is China getting better phones than us from Motorola? Last I checked, Moto is headquartered here, not in a foreign country.

      If you see the back of your phone, 90% chances are that it says: MADE IN CHINA…
      And because of that, Chinese people now have the money to buy them also.

    I think the only spec I was disappointed with on the Droid RAZR was the screen. 720p would have made it a good competitor for the Galaxy Nexus and I would actually recommend it to friends/family.

    As good as 13mp camera is, on a sensor that small its pretty pointless

    Excellent, but why no 720p for Droid Razr in america?
