Not long after the Motorola DROID RAZR was released, word broke that a successor to the device, the DROID RAZR MAXX, was on its way down the pipe. Yesterday, Verizon made that official during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. And now that the device is public knowledge, PhoneDog managed to get their hands on it.
For all intents and purposes, the DROID RAZR MAXX isn’t a true “successor.” Specifically, only one area of the device gets a bump in specifications, while the rest stay the same. You’re still looking at a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen Super AMOLED Advanced display, with the same 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP CPU under the hood. There’s still the 8MP rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video capture capabilities, and you’ll still only find Android 2.3 Gingerbread on the handset. However, the improvement comes in the huge boost to the battery, which measures in at 3,300mAh for the DROID RAZR MAXX. That’s supposed to get you 21 hours of talk time on a full charge, but we’ll wait to see how that goes.
Go ahead and check out the hands-on video of the device below.
