The Motorola Droid 4 has been churning the rumour mill recently, but now some tangible numbers and more pictures have emerged. The most powerful QWERTY phone to date is nigh.
The impending arrival of Motorola's Droid 4 becomes more and more apparent as new images surface along with a tip that it may be released on 8 December by Verizon. While the fast release cycle surprises many people, given that the Motorola Razr was just unleashed, it still makes delighting news for people who must have a physical keyboard on a smartphone.
The D4 will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4-inch touch screen, a full five row illuminated QWERTY keyboard, front camera, a 8-megapixel shooter at the rear side, and topped off with support for 4G Long Term Evolution Network. It looks very similar to the newly released Razr, sans the well-marketed Kevlar rear cover, which is not surprising at all. Unlike the Razr, however, there seems to be a tool that accomodates to the removal of the back piece, suggesting that batteries may be replaceble.
While there is no indication of which Android version it will run, the supposed launch from Verizon alongside the Galaxy Nexus may imply that it will come with the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But, right now, its anybody's guess.
