A couple images of the rumored Droid RAZR HD just landed on Droid Life, showing off the back and side the device; while that really isn't much, at least it's something.

For starters, it's pretty obvious that Motorola stuck with the distinct RAZR Kevlar backing, which is quite nice. Otherwise, there's a camera - rumored to be 13MP - a flash, a speaker, and of course, the 4G LTE logo and Verizon branding. Underneath that backplate is said to be a 3,300mAh battery (not unlike the RAZR MAXX), which should provide enough juice to easily make it through a day or two without having to hit the charger. The side of the device holds the volume rocker, microHDMI, and microUSB ports.

What we don't see here, however, is the display. According to DL's tipster, the display is "amazing" and features on-screen navigation buttons, all but confirming that we'll see ICS on this handset when it's released.

Speaking of, we're hearing that this device could be hitting the market sometime before the end of summer, so it should be available sometime within the next couple months. So now, we wait.

    omg another razr 

    how many times they gonna remake this phone and into tablets too
    (razr,razr maxx,droid 4,xyboards,now this)

      It's the very reason I'll never buy a motorola phone

      For one, they just revived the RAZR brand and for good reason. It is simply one of the most recognizable phone out there and Motorola needed something like that in their Droid-filled portfolio. And TBH, there's only three phones for the Droid RAZR line including this one. Hardly what I'd call "milking it dry." IMO they can name it anything they like as long as they support their phones properly this time.

        what about those and i hate to say this ridiculous naming scheme the xyboards? u dont think thats a giant razr?definitely got the look

        • http://twitter.com/kuyanyan Yanyan

          Nope, not a giant RAZR. It's Motorola's new ID and with Apple being trigger happy about their own design, every other company need their signature look. IMO, it looks better than most phones in its price range. The RAZR brand was meant for their thin clamshell phones and now, they applied it to their Android phones. Obviously, they wouldn't be calling all their Android phones RAZRs and I doubt they'd call their tablet a RAZR.
          Calling their tablet line the XOOM and XYBOARD doesn't really help them push retail units off the shelves. Motorola should probably think of a new name for their next tablet line though.

          IPad=IPhone, Galaxy S line= Galaxy tab. It's all good.

          • fixxmyhead

            Dude these stories are old why are u still reading them

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sonny-Causey/100000065395817 Sonny Causey

      It's no different than Apple with different iterations of the IPhone & IPad or Samsung with the Galaxy line (phones & tablets). It's just the normal process of how manufactures/carriers are doing things these days.

    looks nice!

  • ericl5112

    That back looks too busy to me.  I like how it didn't cover the full thing like on the Razr OG.

  • Jammer

    It'd be nice if this becomes one of the new Nexus devices. 

  • Spam0702

    Waiting for a motorola nexus device here :-)
    Dont want another sammsung/htc phone

    • fixxmyhead

      hahaha are u freaking serious?

      knowing motorola they'll probably add some meniscule spec to the razr and call it a nexus ha!

      and it will still have a locked bootloader lol

      • Physo

        You obviously don't know what a nexus device is.

        • fixxmyhead

          Sarcasm bro.

          I thought it was obvious by the "lol"

  • DROIDER

    Looks like a beast just hope they reduced that huge bevel around the edges I love my DROID RAZR but hate that Big bevel on it

  • JonJJon

    If this gets a UK release with a nice big capacity battery and a reasonable price I would definitely consider this as my next device at the end of this year, especially since in-spite of me wanting a Sony, they just seem to be announcing devices and never actually releasing any in a timely manner, which is a great shame. This looks nice, like the rear cover design and a dual-core under the hood with minimal changes to the look of ICS would probably clinch it for me. Don't need any of this quad-core stuff and the UI changes on the Razr Maxx looked subtle enough for me not to mind it :)

    Hopefully Moto has been feeling enough pressure from their new Google over-lords that this device will have an unlocked (or easily unlockable) bootloader, & an easy rooting method...  

    If it does, (as well as having an SD card & NFC) and it drops in before Verizon's switch to shared data...  I may just be tempted  renew my contract a little early...

    And a month after this, the super slim RAZR HD skinny in red, green, blue and apple red lol

    Looks like Motorola is becoming the Nickleback of Phones. Same design but different names.
