Droid-Life appears to have come across what could be exclusive first pictures of Verizon's upcoming and long rumored Droid RAZR HD by Motorola. What we know about the device includes that it will come with the titular HD screen, Android 4.0, a 13 megapixel camera, and the same extra large battery found in the Droid RAZR Maxx.
The leaked pictures only depict the back and side of the device. It shows a full Kevlar back plate which is missing the plastic band around the edge of former RAZRs. The back is emblazoned with both the Verizon Wireless logo and a 4G LTE emblem.
The RAZR HD is also rumored to be Motorola's first US Android device to feature on-screen software navigation keys. The device is also believed to come equipped with a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, but this couldn't be confirmed by Droid-Life's source.
The side shot shows us that the device appears to keep the thinness that the Droid RAZR was known for. It also shows that Motorola has decided to move the HDMI and micro-USB port to the bottom on the side of the device. This matches some of their older devices such as the Droid Bionic, but is a departure from the top-of-device ports found on the Droid RAZR and RAZR HD.
This device is very similar to the three Android 4.0 devices that we reported on last month. They feature the same full Kevlar backing and Android 4.0 with on-screen navigation keys. This device appears to be missing the signature top side hump that has come on past Motorola Android devices.
There is still no word on a release date for the device and Verizon has yet to even acknowledge its existence. Previous rumors claim that we will see the Droid RAZR HD on Verizon Wireless store shelves sometime this summer, possibly in the next month or two.
Update: Droid-Life has happened upon another bit of Droid RAZR HD news. The rumored quad-core Snapdragon S4 processor has apparently been confirmed by a Nenamark benchmark result for a device listed as the Droid RAZR HD for Verizon.
