High-definition version of Motorola’s RAZR in the works

The name DROID RAZR HD has appeared in the EXIF data from a series of images uploaded to Picasa by a Motorola employee. The EXIF data shows that the handset is running Android 4.0.3 and its camera is equipped with a f/2.4 aperture camera. The photos in question were uploaded by Vic Yu, who is a software engineer and program manager at Motorola Mobility according to his Google+ and LinkedIn profiles. Last month, the first image of what was believed to be the unannounced DROID Fighter surfaced on a Chinese forum. The handset is said to be equipped with the same massive 3,300 mAh battery that is found in the RAZR MAXX and a 4.6-inch high-definition display. The phone also lacked the Android navigation buttons found on earlier RAZR models, suggesting that it makes use of the on-screen buttons found in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The DROID RAZR HD could possibly arrive on Verizon Wireless as the DROID Fighter, although nothing is confirmed for the time being. It should be noted that EXIF data can easily be manipulated, but an image of the data can be found after the break. More →

Leaked image may reveal Motorola’s upcoming DROID Fighter

The first image of what is believed to be the unannounced DROID Fighter has surfaced on Chinese forum PhoneHK. The handset is said to be equipped with the same massive 3,300 mAh battery that is found in the RAZR MAXX and a 4.6-inch high-definition display. The image of the phone also shows that the Android navigation buttons common to earlier RAZR models is absent, leading us to believe that the Fighter will use the on-screen buttons found in Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Details surrounding the smartphone are limited and it isn’t clear if this will be a completely new device or another RAZR variant — though the latter seems more likely. The Fighter is rumored to land on Verizon’s 4G LTE network on April 12th. More →

The HTC Fireball, which is rumored to launch as the DROID Incredible 4G, also makes an appearance on the list, as does a device called the Samsung “Plato” and ZTE V66, although no release dates are listed for those.
