All along, most of us were expecting Verizon’s much-awaited Motorola Droid RAZR HD to come with a 3,300 mAh battery, just like the earlier Droid RAZR MAXX. We were also hoping we’d learn more about the device’s specs as the RAZR HD passed through the FCC two days ago.
Now we’ve got some additional details on the specs, but it’s not what a lot of us were expecting.
According to Droid-Life, the FCC filing more or less included definite details on the Droid RAZR HD’s battery. Instead of the 3,300 mAh monster that fuels the Droid RAZR MAXX, the RAZR HD will come with a 2,530 mAh battery.
That’s not bad, and that’s definitely a lot more battery juice than what you’d find in other handsets’ batteries. (Take the Samsung Galaxy S3 for example, which comes with a 2,100 mAh battery.)
But it’s not 3,300 mAh, which may be a mild disappointment to potential RAZR HD buyers. It was that battery, after all, that helped the RAZR MAXX overtake the iPhone 4S as Verizon’s best-selling mobile phone.
Other rumored features and specs include 4G LTE connectivity, a 4.3-inch HD screen, a dual-core processor (likely a Snapdragon S4 “Krait”) and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera. The release schedule, unfortunately, remains an utter mystery.
The FCC filing is a good indicator that something may be in store soon, but until we hear something from Verizon or Motorola, it would be best to keep our expectations reasonable.
