Motorola RAZR HD pictures surface

The Motorola RAZR HD has long eluded our eyes, but it appears someone has gotten their hands on an early prototype of the device. They graciously posted images of the device to the internet for all to see.

Aside from a funky-looking backplate we can see that the device will feature on-screen capacitive buttons. The name suggests we’ll be seeing an HD display, of course, and the only other specs that the poster was able to confirm is that it’ll have an 8 megapixel camera instead of the previously rumored 13 megapixel camera.

While this is a model not intended for the United States we certainly expect Verizon to carry something nearly identical branded as the Motorola DROID RAZR HD.

That version will notably have LTE radios, but we still don’t know what to expect under the hood. Take a look at the images above and get more from XDA user “siloner.”

    I’m almost surprised it doesn’t say “Now even more Googlier” on the back but then I realized Cookie Monster might own that one. Just what Google would need, the Muppets filing suit against them. :P

    Hmmm.. looks like the serial number is in the upper right corner. Someone’s getting fired. =/

    • Marsg

      or maybe they leaked it on purpose >.>

      I was thinking the same thing!

    Motorola seems to be targeting the bro demographic now with this argyle backplate

    • jbo1018

      bro demographic LOL

    Wish this thing would have an even better IPS screen to put the iphone out of its misery. Im so tired of hearing about the iphone 5. Motorola needs to step it up about 3 more notches and go to 16MP and a 1080p IPS screen and the Maxx battery, quad core CPU, etc.

    • G. Andrew M. Blackburn

      how about a 44mp camera???or how about a 8mp camera with a great sensor insteaad. MP doesn’t mean anything if you have a crap sensor. And why does everyone insist on putting a 1080p screen on a 5in device??? I would rather have a quality 720p display thats putting out more than 2x the framerates you would get on your 1080p display

      • http://theproofstation.com/ Joe Young

        I was just exaggerating but I will bet money that in a year most phones will have 1080p and quad core cpus. I really wish the sensor in moto phones were better. I have a droid X and it looks awesome but its still not as good as a standard digital camera.

        • G. Andrew M. Blackburn

          I think it will be a few more years but they are getting close. I think Nokia and their pureview camera sensors are the best at the moment. They pretty much can replace a P&S camera. I highly doubt phones will have 1080p screens any time soon because your eye just can’t see it. If you held a 4.5in 720p display up to your eye and a 1080p 4.5in display afterwards I don’t think you would be able to tell the difference. Plus, other than the A5X thats in the Ipad3 I don’t think there are any SoC out now that have a GPU that can truly handle it. The thing we should all be hoping for is significantly better battery life.

    • Butters619

      1080p would just kill the battery and use an unnecessary amount of processing power for almost no appreciable difference.

      Quad core, 2GB of Ram, and the Maxx battery would be nice though!

    As someone else pointed out on another blog:

    If you are going to share photos of a leaked phone, please blur out the ID on the phone. The developer who let this out will be losing his job.

  • Marsg

    I love how Motorola has moved to the software keys, bigger screen less bezel not to mention we can get rid of them later and have a lot more space

    • Larizard

      Motorola still seem to put large bezels on their phones though. Take a look at the Atrix HD. It seems like they just moved the buttons up to the screens and still keep a rather wide “chin” on their devices. The side bezels are also still wider than say, the GNex or the SGS3. But of course, this is much better than what HTC and Samsung is doing.

      • Marsg

        yea i agree the Atrix hd has a huge chin that at&t logo is taking up a lot of room, i cant see the bottom of leaked razr but if you look towards the top it has even less bezel then the nexus has so hopefully the bottom is no different.

    looks like an Al Bundy Christmas sweater.

    If this thing has 2GB RAM, LTE, an HD screen, in addition to Moto’s premium build quality, an excellent camera, and top quality radio’s, this’ll be an instant purchase!

  • loony2nz

    Great hardware, but….locked bootloader? We shall see. If it is, I’m sticking with my VZW GNex. Complete control of the phone is hard to give up, even for great hardware. Just my 2 cents.

    • RavenFox

      I have Google version of yours. How much control do you have?

  • sirrdeezy

    Will b getting it

    • JustTrollin69

      Who’s Will B?

  • Cipher Zero

    If it doesn’t come with a big battery like the MAXX, and you’re interested in one of these, I’d wait a bit to see if they don’t release a Droid HD MAXX a month or two down the road, especially considering the fact that Motorola seems to be going with non-replaceable batteries.
    Personally, I’ll pass regardless of how great it is. Replaceable batteries and a non-encrypted, unlockable bootloader are deal-breakers for me, as well as removable/expandable SD cards. I’m well aware that I’m in the minority, but that’s what stopped me from getting the SGS3 on Verizon. I won’t buy an Android phone that you’re unable to flash custom kernels on. If I want to update to say, Jellybean, I sure as heck don’t want to wait on Verizon to get around to it. They couldn’t even get the GNex updated to 4.0.4 in a timely manner, which is a freaking no-brainer for anyone, it’s a Nexus device for crying out loud.

      I have been running CM10 on my sgs3 for about two weeks now. As for the locked bootloader, yes I am pissed about it but I had to order this phone to keep my unlimited data.

    “on-screen buttons” – Okay, I’m interested. Let’s hope it’s released with JB and the battery of the Razr Maxx.

    What’s the approximate screen size of the phone?
