Motorola Droid 4 spy shots revealed, looks promising

Motorola is known as one of the leading mobile phone manufacturers in the world and they recently launched several new Android devices. The Droid RAZR is their latest and greatest soon-to-be launched Android phone but now it seems they’re already prepping for the next big thing. Remember when we told you about the Droid 4? Well, back then it was just a rumor and the phone was codenamed the ‘Maserati.’ Our friends over at Droid-Life were lucky enough to get their hands on a few shots of the Droid 4 and no doubt the phone looks cool. It comes with the same design as the RAZR as you can see from the edgy corners, but it’s also rocking the iconic DROID slide-out keyboard as well. Unfortunately, Motorola is not offering a free Maserati with the Droid 4, but it does comes with a lot of great features. Have a look:

  • 4″ screen (assuming Super AMOLED Advanced)
  • Full 5-row “illuminated” keyboard
  • RAZR styling
  • 4G LTE
  • Non-removable battery
  • Android 2.3.5
  • 1080p video recording (assuming 8MP)
  • Front camera
  • HDMI out
  • MotoACTV syncing

I am satisfied with the specs and I am sure this one will rock the show, but what’s confusing me is that it’s on Gingerbread. With Android 4.0 coming out soon and the whole Motorola/Google thing, you’d expect the next gen. DROID to have ICS. There’s no word on a release date but perhaps Motorola and Verizon will launch it sometime around the holidays. Also, there’s no information on the processor speed and model, but rumors put it at a 1.5 GHz dual-core OMAP processor. Anyway, let’s wait for the final words from Motorola.

So who’s looking forward to grabbing the Droid 4 later this year, or would you rather wait for a device with ICS pre-installed?

    A removable battery is a MUST HAVE for me

    i hopethis no removable battery thing moto is doing does not become a trend  makes them look like a crappy apple thing

    I won’t buy a phone without a removable battery.  For one thing, with my Bonic, there have been two occasions where removing the battery was the only way to reboot it.  I have two regular batteries and one extended battery and before I leave the house I pop in a fresh battery.  I guess Motorola figures if Apple can get away it it, so can they.  What a shame!
