When we first started seeing signs of Motorola’s Droid 4 show up over the past few months, the timing seemed quite odd, considering that the Droid 3 had only landed on Verizon back in July. While the Droid 4′s launch is apparently stalled for the moment, the latest rumors suggest it will arrive in about a month. If a new leak that surfaced this weekend is any indication, the Droid 3 could already be on its way out by then, with a Verizon document showing the smartphone taking on end-of-life status this month.
The Droid 3 isn’t the only Verizon Android to get the touch-of-death on this list, nor the only one to see new shipments dry-up in just a matter of months following the handset’s debut. The LG Revolution joins Motorola’s handset in this notorious club up, but at least it managed to eke out a slightly-longer lifespan, thanks to launching a little bit earlier, back in May. Like the Droid 3, which we expect to see quickly replaced by the Droid 4, the Revolution has its own successor already lined-up. We’ve spotted that model, the LG Spectrum, in pics a couple weeks ago, showing off a slim build and LTE support. We haven’t heard any specifics of its release, but sometime in Q1 seems pretty certain.
