Motorola have been pretty quiet in recent times, with the only major news emerging from the company since their acquisition by Google being that they’re on the verge of laying off around 20% of their workforce.
In brighter news for fans of the American phone-maker, Hot Hardware have heard from ‘a very reliable source’ that Motorola is getting ready to launch HD models of its Razr and Razr Maxx smartphones in October.
The rumours have received a nice bit of reinforcement too from a couple of accompanying pictures, which show the rear casing of the phone and how it looks it action.
The display on the upcoming handset looks set to host a 720 x 1280 HD resolution, running on a powerful 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. Slightly disappointing is the suggestion that it will come with Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) pre-installed rather than the latest 4.1 Jelly Bean update.
True to Motorola’s style – or lack of it, thereof – the new Razr’s aren’t the prettiest of things, with the rear chassis having what can only be described as a robo-floral pattern plastered all over it. Aside from the bigger battery size (and subsequently bigger rear) of the Maxx model of the phone, the specs on the two handsets are expected to be the same.
