We continue to wonder when Motorola will unveil the RAZR HD, and the latest rumor states that the device will be launching this October. That is not the most exciting part, though. These sources also swear by the fact that it will come accompanied by a slightly thicker RAZR Maxx HD.
One of Motorola’s best moves has been releasing the DROID RAZR Maxx – a device with equal specs and features compared to the RAZR, but with a 3300 mAh battery that will please even the most demanding battery hog. This made the RAZR Maxx’s popularity skyrocket far quicker than the RAZR’s ever could.
We have no reason to believe Moptorola wouldn’t want to continue the legacy, but we only have to wonder how large this battery would be if a Maxx version does happen to come around. The RAZR HD is passed through he FCC revealing a 2530 mAh, which is already a substantial number.
As usual, we will advice that you take this information with a grain of salt. These “credible sources” are not always right, and any manufacturer releasing a high-end device a month after an iPhone release is definitely not thinking straight. Not to mention that we would rather not wait that long for any device.
But what do you guys say? Would you drop a regular RAZR HD for a super-battery equipped phone?

They make the same over and over again with different names. Moto needs to stop making phones period.
A while ago some benchmark results were released for the Razr HD, and they were on level with the SGSIII. I’d say that they aren’t just making the same thing over again.
Who cares when its coming out 5-6 months later? And it will most likely have a huge bezel and smaller screen when compared to the sgs3. Same thing when comparing RAZR to sgs2
October is 2 months…not 5-6. There are many people who don’t like Sammy..just like there are Moto haters. It will still sell well, no matter what you think.
the Razr’s screen is the same size as the Galaxy SII’s, huge bezel or not. So in this case no, not the same thing at all.
We all jokingly said it would happen and yet moto proved us rigjt which is not a good thing
Is it just me or should they just scratch the non Max HD version and release the Max version only?
probably just you, and people who don’t get the very easy to grasp benefit of having both.
2500mAh would be more than I know what to do with, and I certainly wouldn’t pay the extra the Maxx version will go for.
By the time this phone actually launches, the battery will be the only differentiating thing about it, this phone should have launched months ago, it’s just going to be another good phone by the time it comes out, but nothing special.
VZ does this a lot
Actually, the RAZR is still selling well. If they release this phone “too soon” they will lose sales to the newer versions. Not to mention, it has been in Moto’s best interest to milk the market and piss everyone off by releasing phones one after the other.
The Maxx battery is the only selling point Motorola phones have at the moment, I’m still at a loss why other manufacturers haven’t ported the idea to other devices yet.
I also eagerly await its adoption and subsequent abandonment in favor of whatever is next.
I will stay with the Samsung Sunburst.
PLEASE deliver one of these Motorola MAXX phones to T-Mobile please !
