When we first heard about the Motorola Droid RAZR HD we were expecting the device to be available for purchase by the end of the summer. We even took our time to compare it with the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X in order to see whether or not the HD is any good. Eventually we’ve decided that Motorola’s upcoming flagship phone is one device to look forward to, but now that the latest rumors indicate that the gadget will not see the light of day earlier than the October-November time-frame, we’re beginning to wonder whether or not previous comparisons between the RAZR HD and other handsets are still relevant or not.
Nevertheless, alongside the rumors pointing towards a late-ish release of the device came other bits of information indicating that a RAZR HD MAXX edition might be launched as well so, that being said, Motorola’s upcoming device did have its advantages over the rest of the bunch. Now, according to the latest rumors, those advantages might in fact not exist at all.
Motorola Droid RAZR HD MAXX Edition and 13 MP Camera
One of the best traits expected from a RAZR HD, especially from a MAXX edition was of course the outstanding battery life. The Motorola RAZR MAXX has been around for quite some time now, and it’s still king of the hill when it comes to battery life. That being said, we thought that the upcoming RAZR HD should deliver at least the same performance but, according to the latest rumors, it will not be the case.
Despite the fact that we’ve recently heard about a possible RAZR HD MAXX being in the works, new bits of information indicates otherwise: RAZR HD MAXX will not be launched at all and all we we’ll get is a RAZR HD packing a 2530 mAh battery (not bad either, but still … not a MAXX).
To make things even worse, word around the campfire is that the RAZR HD will not boast a 13 MP camera on the back as anticipated, but instead it will be fitted with a (regular) 8 MP shooter. If that’s true, there goes yet another advantage the HD had over the Galaxy S3 and the One X. Fortunately, the 4.6 inch HD display with ColorBoost technology seems to remain on tracks so at least there’s that.
But to summarize things up, these latest bits of information are indicating that the RAZR HD will come later than anticipated (October-November timeslot) and it will hit the waves with lower specs than expected. Any thoughts?
