Update: In what seems to be a major social media fail, Motorola does not appear to be teasing a new device after all. TechRadar spent some time chatting with a Motorola rep about the whole incident, only to find out that it was a false alarm. Oh, Motorola, why do you build us up, baby, just to let us down?

Good job, guys.

Motorola has taken to its Facebook page with a bit of a game teasing an upcoming device. The company will "give a clue each day all week and make the big reveal on [August 10th]" The first hint? "I have the power of 4G LTE. Which smartphone am I?"


If your first guess was "RAZR HD!," then pat yourself on the back, because that's probably right. In fact, unless Motorola has some super top-secret device that it has somehow been able to keep hidden under lock and key for the last several weeks, we can't think of another rumored Moto device coming down the pike.

Luckily, we won't have long to wait for the official unveiling. Tomorrow will bring another hint, and the next day another; then, on Friday, the cat will be out of the bag. Hoorah.

    It'll have a locked bootloader as usual.
    I say we leave lots of comments about that, as always.

      Oh just not buy the phone...?

        I have an Atrix, and I'm lucky to have an unlocked BL, but Moto is easily the worst of the big phone makers, in my opinion. The lack of support for developers is a huge loss. If they had unlocked bootloaders I'd recommend them for the hardware.

    Motorola, unlock the boatloader. Or I'll guarantee you'll lose loyal customers that you haven't already. Security measures my ass :(

    It would need a battery as big as my MAXX to even consider it. Even with the better screen, the smaller battery that has been leaked, makes it inferior IMO.

    I wish T-Mobile USA would add a high-end Motorola device to their roster. Not holding my breath.

        I'm with fixxmyhead. Every Moto device I've ever gotten a hold of has been trash. They suck at updates worse than any other OEM in my opinion, then you have to wait for the carrier on top of that. Moto has a way of taking a device with great specs or ideas, and running it into the ground with their software and batteries.

          The Motorola XOOM has been great with updates. Also, the original Droid was pretty good. Hopefully, now that they are a Google subsidary, there might be more pressure on them to give out timely updates on all their devices (also, hopefully MotoBlur will die).

      T-mobile is doing just fine with it's device lineup. It's network is doing extremely well and better devices are on the way than this Motorola Hd. How about the Htc Onx Plus September 21st, The Note 2 will hit before November, and the NEXT NEXUS will also be able to be purchased at google play store and used on tmobile's 42mpbs network. Looks to me T-mobile will be just fine these next 6months

    Maybe they are announcing the RAZR Nexus. Basically, a RAZR HD Max with stock JB 4.1.

    I doubt its the Razr HD but not sure. Did hear from a pretty reliable source about a Droid Razr Mini. But we shall see.
