Yes, that's right - at just half an inch thick, the Droid 4 is the world's thinnest 4G LTE QWERTY Smartphone. Not only is it ridiculously thin (for a slider), but it also packs some pretty raw power under it's hood. Check out what it has to offer:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Android 2.3.5 (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgradable)
  • 4-Inch "scratch-and-scrape resistant" display
  • 16GB internal memory, Up To 32 GB microSD card supported
  • Full five-row QWERTY 
  • 8MP rear shooter with 1080p HD Video Capture
  • 4G LTE Capable (duh)

Note from Cameron: I would like to take this opportunity to put my foot in my mouth. I was wrong about the D4 - it's nowhere near as thick as I made it out to be when the last set of images leaked.

    What's with this ICS upgradeable BS? Why can't you release it with ICS?

  • Koekje

    Because they need to make that horrible MotoBlur first.... :p anyways is this phone going to be released in europe :O?

  • slurms mckenzie

    wait another month and theyll release the droid 4 hd

    • Sam

      LOL.. Droid X Charge 4

      • http://profiles.google.com/ISantop Ian

        It's not as bad as Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch. :/

        • savedr

          Just compare it to the upcoming DROID 4S 2 X EPIC TOUCH Z GAIDEN FOREVER

  • Brent

    had high hopes for this phone.

    Blur = Fail.

    On to looking for something else.

  • duder

    front facing camera? looks like it on the pic, but can't tell if that's just the LED

  • http://tantrajnaan.com Robert Dunn

    Poll: Is this a RAZR with a keyboard or a Droid 3 with LTE?

  • xploited

    Damn... Motorola needs to lay off the "release new phone every 3 months" BS.

    • savedr

      I JUST FUCKING GOT a Droid 3, it was released maybe 6 months ago. Maybe.

      Not that I don't love it, I totally do, but compared with my previous Atrix it sure would be nice if it had that 1GB of ram, it's almost fucking unusable as is (speed-wise), which doesn't make any sense seeing as it has a better OMAP dual-core processor.

      I mean, you literally cannot be on a webpage in the stock browser, hit the home key, and launch the browser and expect it to keep the page in ram. Ever. Even with sub-10KB mobile webpages.

  • Falconator

    I'm due for an upgrade February of 2013...I can wait for the Droid8!!!

  • Deon

    Now that's what I'm talking about! I don't care if Samsung, LG and Huawei has thin phones, none have a slider. I love a physical keyboard. The thinnest slider? I'm all for it. I think the Droid 4 may be my future. If it had a D-Pad it'd be perfect. The mytouch 4g slide has a d-pad, dual core and slide-out keyboard.

    • savedr

      See, I want a dpad, but only like it is on my Droid 3 now, sort of just 4 normal arrow keys in a PC keyboard sort of arrangement. My brothers had OG Droids, that giant dpad was horrible.

  • Lazarus Dark

    I have loved my OG Droid, but its showing its age and feeling slower and slower, despite CM7.

    I need to upgrade it asap (I'm eligible for discount next week!), but if this thing is locked down, then Moto wont be getting my money again and I'll be going with the Galactus.
