The Motorola DROID RAZR M was a bit underwhelming when it was announced earlier this year, but it was never a bad device. In fact, the main complaint against it was the fact that the display wasn’t HD. Instead it launched with qHD resolution, and it was placed onto Verizon’s store shelves at the mid-range point.
It seems that might not have been enough for the OEM and carrier, though, as an HD variant is said to be in the works. PhoneArena picked up on the news from an unnamed source, and even has a nice, long list of specs for us to go over.
The device will reportedly house a 4.5 inch 720p display which gives us an astounding 326 ppi, a 3,300mAh battery which should give up to 21 hours of talk time, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and more.
If all this sounds too familiar, the it’s probably because it sounds an awful lot like a DROID RAZR MAXX HD. The battery certainly matches that device’s capabilities, we’re looking at the same chipset, and aside from the rumored DROID RAZR M HD being .2 inches smaller it should house many of the same components. We can’t be too sure what the motive for this refresh is with the base RAZR series already out there, but we’re not mad to be getting more options at all.
We have no idea when Motorola would be bringing the device out, but it’s quick turnaround for a simple refresh. The original RAZR M was released in September so a turnaround time of less than half a year would be insane. Heck, anything short of 10 months would be ridiculous.
That said, it’s just a rumor so there’s not much sense in putting a ton of stock into it. A word of advice, though: if this excites you then just go ahead and get yourself a RAZR MAXX HD because it’s almost the exact same device as far as internals go.
