When Motorola announced the new Droid RAZR HD and MAXX HD, it managed to leave out of the discussion a pretty important detail for potential buyers: the release date. It feels like they revealed it only to prove it exists, but from the abundance of leaks that surfaced on the internet about the two devices, before they got official, we pretty much knew what they are capable of.
In our humble opinion, with the avalanche of smartphones that were also recently unveiled (iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2 to name a few), Motorola shouldn’t waste any time in releasing the Droid RAZR HD and MAXX HD. But when is this going to happen ? Check back after the break to see what we know so far.
Motorola Droid RAZR HD MAXX Release Date
Like we said, we still have nothing official from Motorola regarding the Droid RAZR MAXX HD release date, but what we know is that Motorola posted on its Youtube account a RAZR HD MAXX commercial-spot. It was already pulled off so we can’t show it to you for now, but we’ll tell you what you missed.
Of course, the battery was touted as the main selling point, but they also advertise the phone as having an “HD edge-to-edge” display. That may be true for the Motorola Droid RAZR M (we know it’s not actually true edge-to-edge but that’s probably as good as it gets using today’s technology), but in the case of the RAZR MAXX HD it sounds more like a marketing gimmick.
As far as the actual release date, the commercial ended with a vague “Coming soon” message, but the actual existence of the advertisement is a hint that we may see the Droid RAZR MAXX HD even sooner than the holidays, like previously advertised by the company ( maybe I am a tad too optimistic here ). A nice surprise from Motorola would be to equip the two Droid RAZR HD phones with Jelly Bean directly, even if at the announcement they mentioned Android 4.1 is due in a later update.
Thanks Droid Life for the info on the brief appearance of the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD commercial and stay tuned to find out more about the phone’s release date.
