Superphones: Samsung Galaxy S3 & HTC One X Not Alone

By  | 

Despite Motorola’s reluctance to officially announce the Motorola Droid RAZR HD release date, we have seen a number of leaked images and statements that are getting us excited for its arrival. With regards to it’s specifications, we are looking forward to a device that is likely to match the hugely popular Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.

Motorola DROID RAZR HD to soon join Samsung Galaxy S3 & HTC One X for superphone bout

The Android model looks from the images to be in a similar vein to Motorola’s former Android devices, with a carbon fibre style back and thick exterior like its predecessors the RAZR and RAZR MAXX, and with any luck the similarity will extend to the battery and match the 3300mAh battery of the RAZR MAXX.

It also looks like the device will sport a microHDMI port along with a microUSB port like some of Motorola’s other former devices, the Bionic and the Droid X and X2. The sturdy smartphone is also set the have a 1196×720 screen and no physical buttons on it. The pixels are again, a match for the Samsung Galaxy S3 whilst the screen size is a massive improvement from the RAZR’s 540×960 screen. All the leaked benchmarks which you can see for yourself, discuss some really impressive features, such as the Nenamark benchmark which shows it has a dual-core Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz processor just like the US HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3. Though the S3 does have a huge 2GB RAM rather than the Droid RAZR HD and its 1GB.

We are still awaiting news on the costs and the actual launch date, but since there have been so many leaks of late, we foresee it happening in the relatively near future, and from experience we predict the price to sit somewhere between $249 and $299.
