A couple new smartphones for Verizon have been popping-up on leaked roadmaps lately, including the Droid Fighter. Much earlier, we looked at a list of HTC codenames for upcoming handsets, and saw the Fighter among them; could this Droid Fighter be related, or is the common name just a coincidence? Today, a picture of a phone purporting to be the Droid Fighter has been released, along with some basic information on the phone, only this time we’re looking at a model manufactured by Motorola.

Instead of HTC, the source behind the imagery says that it’s Motorola that will be releasing the Fighter. If the phone looks familiar to you, it should, since apparently the Fighter is little more than a hardware refresh of the Droid RAZR. Actually, we might be closer to calling this a refresh of the RAZR Maxx, because it’s reportedly keeping the same 3300mAh battery.

The big difference between the Fighter and the RAZRs released in the US so far is the inclusion of a 4.6-inch HD display. We’ve heard of similar models destined for China with 720p screens, so that’s likely what we’re looking at here.

Beyond the display, the other major change facing the Droid Fighter is that it does away with the RAZR’s capacitive buttons in favor of on-screen alternatives, and likewise would be released running Ice Cream Sandwich.

It’s definitely odd to hear of another RAZR version in such short succession, but maybe the third time will be the charm. If the latest roadmap is accurate, we might hope to see the phone come out around April 12.
