iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Motorola Droid 4 Pics & Specs

Details and close up pictures of the Motorola Droid 4 have appeared online courtesy of tech website Droid-Life.com (opens in new tab).

The smartphone which is set to launch on Verizon on December 8th, the same day the Samsung Galaxy Nexus goes live, appears to be a variant of the Motorola Razr.

Apart from the fact that it has a smaller display (4-inch 960x540 pixels), a full five-row Edge-lit QWERTY keyboard (like the Droid 2 and 3) and doesn't come with a Kevlar battery cover, there's not much to differentiate between the two handsets.

Both have a 1.2GHz dual core TI OMAP chipset, 1GB RAM, an eight megapixel rear camera with full HD video recording, a 1785mAh batttery, HD front facing camera, 1080p HDMI video mirroring and 4G LTE connectivity.

As expected, the Droid 4 packs a number of Motorola only applications like a Webtop one which converts the phone into an ultraportable laptop when connected to an optional docking station.

There's also the Smart Actions feature that allows users to extend battery life and automate everyday tasks. Also included in the package are Motocast, a clever streaming app, and FIPS 140-2 Government-Grade encryption that ensures maximum security.
