Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD debut in US

The phones were launched for the US Verizon network, but as we have seen before, these Motorola launches do tend to head over to the UK in some form eventually. There's no reason to suggest that the Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD will deviate from this path.

With that in mind, it's worth checking out just what these new kids on the block offer. In the case of the Droid RAZR HD, it's really just confirmation of a phone that has been leaked quite a lot over the months. We now know it runs Android 4.0.4 (upgrading to Jelly Bean before the year is out) and packs a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, eight-megapixel rear camera, NFC and a 2,500mAh battery, which should keep you talking and networking for a long, long time.

There's still a tough Kevlar coating, a thin profile of 8.4mm and 4G connectivity. That rules it out of the UK market for now (unless Orange and T-Mobile take it up), but an amended version for the UK really shouldn't be ruled out.
Likewise, the Droid RAZR Maxx HD. To be honest, it doesn't look massively different from the specification, but there is enough here to push it a little further up the range. It takes everything to the 'Maxx'. That's aside from the Android operating system. which is still stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich for now.

What you do get is is a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and an eight-megapixel camera, along with 32GB of on-board storage and an even stronger 3,300mAh battery, which promises to keep you talking for up to 21 hours. It also means 13 hours of video playback or eight hours of web browsing. It only adds 1mm on the width too.

If or when these get the nod for the UK, we'll let you know. In the meantime, just look on and admire these beauties.
