Dubbed the Droid RAZR M, Verizon’s upcoming smartphone will sport a 4.3-inch HD Super AMOLED Advanced display that will boast an 1196 x 720 resolution, as previously reported. Packing a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, the handset will come with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, though the device will be equipped with a microSD slot for additional space.
The smartphone is also going to feature global roaming capabilities, 4G LTE connectivity, and an NFC chip, an ideal characteristic for the Google Wallet users out there. Furnished with on-screen navigation keys, the smartphone will house a 3-megapixel front-facing camera, as well as an 8-megapixel rear shooter that is capable of taking 1080p video.
From this spec leak, it seems the only similarity this device will have with its predecessor is a Kevlar casing, though no word yet if the Droid RAZR M will have the same 1780 mAh battery as the original Droid RAZR.
An Important Product
With Motorola undergoing big changes since being acquired by Google back in May, the company has said it will reduce its number of devices to just a few, eliminating low-end phones to focus only on high-quality devices. Pegged with a $150 price tag with a new two-year agreement, the Droid RAZR M certainly fits Motorola’s high-end credentials. The smartphone is expected to be announced alongside the Droid RAZR HD at Verizon and Motorola’s press conference on Sept. 5.
