It sounds like we’re going to be getting another variant of the Motorola Droid RAZR, already available as the original model and the extended battery-life RAZR Maxx. This next RAZR would supposedly offer users a 720p display, instead of the qHD screen on existing models. There have been several names attributed to this rumored handset, including the RAZR HD and the Droid Fighter. Today, we’ve got some new imagery to look at that may show some Motorola hardware that reflects the same changes that we’ll be seeing in the Droid RAZR HD.
The phone we’re looking at here is Motorola model MT887, and with a TD-SCDMA radio, it’s clearly never going to leave China. That doesn’t mean we couldn’t see the same thing with a different radio make it to the US, so it’s still relevant to our interests.
Unlike the 4.3-inch display on the RAZR, this model supposedly steps things up to 4.6 inches, in addition to raising the resolution to 720p. Processor and memory options should remain unchanged, and there’s some more evidence here that the phone will lose its capacitive buttons. As such, the model will arrive running Ice Cream Sandwich. It also seems that the handset could keep the RAZR Maxx’s larger battery, with the bulkier shell to match.
We’ve seen a lot of different Motorola RAZR-series hardware over the months, and the differences between the models can be quite small. This MT887 may not be exactly how we see the RAZR HD arrive, but at least it can give us a few ideas for now.
