Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX for Verizon officially launching January 26

Now that the original DROID RAZR by Motorola is down to a $199 price tag, and we’ve got three different versions of the device available for purchase, it’s about time that Verizon comes clean on that official launch date for the next version of the DROID RAZR. Thankfully, Big Red hasn’t waited until the last minute to officially announce their next DROID member, as the company has announced that the RAZR MAXX will be launching January 26th.

The specifications for the DROID RAZR MAXX are pretty much identical to the original. It still features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display with a resolution of 960×540. It features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor under the hood, with an 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video capture capabilities. The big difference comes in the battery size, with the DROID RAZR MAXX featuring a 3,300mAh battery, instead of the original’s 1,780mAh.

You can head into a Verizon store to get your hands on the DROID RAZR MAXX in two days, so mark your calendars, and get ready to pass along $299.99 on a new, two-year contract to walk out of the store with one.
