Lately more and more rumors and leaks surrounding the Motorola Droid RAZR HD have surfaced, and today we’re here to show you the entire picture the leaks and rumors are painting so far.
Late-May we got the chance of taking a look at how the RAZR HD will look like in China, giving us a bit of insight on what to expect from the handset once it hits the US shores. However, recently we got our hands on a couple of blurry pictures depicting the US variant and by the looks of it there are quite a few differences compared to what we’ve seen before.
Nevertheless, the latest rumor does not concern the device’s looks or release date; in fact it concerns the handset’s hardware and performances. Join us after the break for more details.
Motorola Droid RAZR HD Specs
As it turns out the Motorola Droid RAZR HD made its first appearance on the NenaMark2 website boasting some new information concerning its specs, and of course the benchmark score.
In terms of specs we’re looking at a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 chip running at 1.5 GHz, paired with an Adreno 225 GPU, a display supporting a resolution of 1196 x 720 pixels and Android 4.0.4 to complete the package. As a side note, the display resolution could very well indicate that the handset will have on-screen software keys instead of capacitive buttons.
As for the NenaMark2 results, the Motorola Droid RAZR HD scored an average, min and max score of 59.10, which means it pretty much reached its limit. Quick 101 for those unaware of what I’m referring to: both your computer’s screen and your smartphone’s display refresh at a certain frequency. If V-Sync is enabled (and on your smartphone it certainly is) the maximum FPS you’ll be able to get is equal with the value of your screen’s refresh rate, despite the fact that the hardware could yield more than that. In other words, as long as V-Sync is enabled on a 60 Hz display you will never get more than 60 frames per second.
That being said, the Motorola Droid RAZR HD has reached its limit which is a good thing, but it’s not an astonishing feat in itself because other older handsets are able to do the same thing as well.
Nevertheless, we appreciate the fact that the NenaMark2 benchmark gave us a chance of learning more about the RAZR HD’s hardware.
Motorola Droid RAZR HD Release Date
As far as the release date goes we’re still shooting in the dark at this moment. Rumor has it that the US launch might have been delayed because of the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S3. One camp is claiming that the release date has been pushed back until the end of summer, whilst the opposing sources point out that the device will hit the US market “sooner than we think”, a statement which doesn’t inspire too much confidence in my mind.
We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more so stay tuned.
