After the launch of the Motorola DROID RAZR last year, Motorola had come up with the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX, which had the same specs as the DROID RAZR. The only difference was the battery capacity, the thickness and the weight of the phone. The DROID RAZR MAXX had a 3300mAh Li Ion battery which made it thicker and heavier than the DROID RAZR, which had a 1780mAh battery.

This year, too, Motorola has launched the new DROID RAZR MAXX HD, this time with the DROID RAZR HD which is the successor to DROID RAZR. The DROID RAZR MAXX HD, like its predecessor, differs from the DROID RAZR HD only in terms of its battery. The RAZR MAXX HD, like the RAZR HD, has the same 4.7inch, 720p HD display, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 8MP cam and, supports LTE and NFC. It has two ports, micro-HDMI and micro-USB, on the left side, and also a 3.5mm headphone jack at the top.

Battery wise, the DROID RAZR MAXX HD has a 3300mAh battery, which is the same as the previous RAZR MAXX. This is kind of odd because the new RAZR HD has a 2500mAh battery, which was a great improvement over its predecessor’s 1780mAh battery. The larger battery means that the RAZR MAXX HD has to be thicker than the RAZR HD; the MAXX HD is 9.3mm thick compared to 8.4mm of the RAZR HD.

Coming to the design, the RAZR MAXX HD is identical to the RAZR HD and is difficult to tell them apart unless you pick it up. Both differ only in their thickness. The RAZR MAXX HD uses the same Kevlar fibre as the RAZR HD, covering the whole back panel. The front is protected by Gorilla Glass. The sides are covered over by a titanium-colour ring that runs all the way around. The volume rocker and the power buttons are located on the rightside.

Like the RAZR HD, the RAZR MAXX HD will have Android ICS with a Jelly-BEAN update promised by Motorola.

The RAZR MAXX HD will be available “before Holidays”.
