While Verizon subscribers in the US wait for the arrival of the Motorola Droid RAZR for the carrier’s LTE network, the rest of the world is waiting for news of the international version of the smartphone. We’ve been told that it’s on the way sometime next month, but details are sparse. Today, the FCC has published the certification paperwork for a new Motorola smartphone; could it be the international RAZR?
Frequency support has been tested for AT&T’s WCDMA bands, which is about what we’d expect for an international phone arriving at the FCC in the States. Motorola is quite good at not accidentally leaking information in these FCC publications, so why do we think we might be looking at the RAZR?
Wireless Goodness points to the phone’s battery, an 1800mAh component with model number SNN5899A. We’ve heard that the RAZR is supposed to have a 1780mAh battery, which sounds close enough, but we’re unable to confirm that part number; all Google hits for it are very recent, and are in reference to this FCC publication, rather than the Verizon version of the Droid RAZR. Even if it’s the same part, it’s not necessarily a slam-dunk for this model being the international RAZR, but it would certainly be evidence towards that end.
