Motorola Aiming to Launch Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD in October

We just heard from a very reliable source, deep in the trenches of the mobile battle ground, that Motorola is gearing up to launch its Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD smartphones in October, provided the handset maker is able to move enough current generation Razr/Razr Maxx devices between now and then. If not, the good ol' Bat Wings may push their launch date back a bit, so don't mark your calendars with a permanent marker; use erasable ink instead.

Images of the Razr HD recently leaked to the Web, and while it's not the prettiest looking smartphone, it should ascend to the top of Motorola's lineup as the company's new flagship handset. We weren't able to confirm any specs with our source, but we were told the Razr HD and Razr Maxx HD will sport the same feature-set, only the latter will ship with a bigger battery for longer battery life and will obviously be a little thicker as a result (though not by much, we're told). However, scuttlebutt from those in the know suggest a 720X1280 HD display, along with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5GHz pushing the pixels.

Based on the leaked images at XDA Forum, Motorola's new phones will ride into town carrying Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0.4) rather than Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).  Stick around as more details slide in on the Razr's edge.
