Verizon may follow the Droid Bionic with the Droid RAZR. This is My Next

The hardware specifications for the rumored Droid Razr surfaced over the weekend at This is My Next, painting the image of a slightly evolved Droid Bionic.

The seemingly reliable details include a 4.3-inch display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, and 4G LTE support. Although the processor's manufacturer has not been identified, it's definitely a step up from the Droid Bionic. What's more, the Super AMOLED Plus display certainly is a departure from the PenTile matrix found in other recent Motorola smartphones.

According to This is My Next's source, the handset had a code name of Spyder, but the name "Droid Razr" is referenced in the handet's "About" screen. What's more, the tipster indicates that the phone features an "HD" front-facing camera, though its resolution was not immediately known.

Comparing these new images to one that first surfaced in August, it's highly like that this is the same phone once also known as the Droid HD. Indeed, the other details match up pretty closely with each other so I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this phone has multiple names.

Additional details for the Droid Razr include support for Motorola's Webtop and Lapdock accessories, Gorilla Glass, and a Kevlar casing with a splash-guard coating.

Given all of the details, I expect that the phone will be announced for Verizon Wireless in the coming weeks with a fourth quarter release. I'll be very interested in seeing how a Droid Razr is marketed, especially after the Droid Bionic is supposed to rule all machines. The Droid that rules the Droid that rules all machines?
