Motorola DROID RAZR HD Lined Up Ahead of Samsung Galaxy S3?

Motorola could be prepping a new handset to steal some thunder from the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it is presented to the world next week.

According to pictures that have emerged on a Chinese website, the phone will be launched as the DROID RAZR HD or the MT887, and is a fully compliant Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone without any hardware buttons.

The phone is likely to come with a 4.3-inch 1,280 by 720 pixels display, a dual core TI OMAP 4430 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, GSM and TD-SCDMA connectivity, an eight-megapixel camera, a 3300mAh battery and Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The fact that it is not a quad core model means that it is more of an update rather than a completely new model. Some would argue that it is a variant of the DROID RAZR given that it could have the same chipset and RAM but a bigger screen and less onboard storage.

Two things that one can expect therefore: (a) Motorola will drop the price of existing smartphones which could mean bargain for some (b) there could well be an additional smartphone launched by Motorola which will take on the One X and the Samsung Galaxy S3.
