This smartphone by default is capable of HD video playback along with support for video formats such as DivX. By default, it will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Motorola promises to release Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for it as soon as possible.
This Razr HD carries an 8 megapixel camera at the back with auto focus and LED Flash. With capability to click high quality images, this camera can also capture full HD videos. The front facing 1.3 megapixel camera will aide in peer to peer chats. By default, this smartphone will have Chrome for Android pre-loaded along with Quickoffice.

Motorola Razr Maxx HD
The Razr Maxx HD carries the same design and specifications as that of the Razr HD except for the few core differences. The Droid Razr Maxx HD measures 9.3mm thick and weigh 157 grams compared to the 146 grams weighing Razr HD.
All three smartphones will have Corning Gorilla Glass with water-repellent nano-coating and at the back will be DuPont’s strong Kevlar fiber to protect its back. Motorola has used aircraft grade aluminium for the sides.
Motorola has used new materials and hardware for its Razr line up but still there is no quad-core model from the company. While three phones are expected to be available till late November, we hope these smartphones run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean by default.
