We've seen Motorola unveil their Droid RAZR Maxx HD, and their edge-to-edge-sporting RAZR M, now we have the veil lifted on the Droid RAZR HD. Motorola's Droid RAZR HD sports a 4.7-inch HD display, a dual-core Qualcomm 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and a 2,500mAh battery, of course, it also receives Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as its OS.

Motorola have built quite a large phone, while trying to keep it as slim as possible, as well as throwing a decently-sized battery in for good measure. Measuring in at just 8.4mm thick, 68mm across and 132mm tall, you'd forget there's a 4.7-inch screen sitting in front of your face. Motorola's Droid RAZR HD also features Kevlar coating which should keep it safe from most things, maybe except a bullet.

We get a micro-HDMI port, as well as micro USB and the usual 3.5mm headphone jack. Motorola are claiming that we should expect 10 hours of movie or TV show playback, and 6 hours of surfing the web. Because of its HD screen and 4.7-inch size, Moto claim that it sports the "same sharp clarity as your HDTV". Moto also claim that the RAZR HD will come with 24 hours of battery performance.

The Droid RAZR M will arrive in various countries including Asia Pacific, Europe, North American and Latin America. The Droid RAZR HD will be made available on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network "before the holidays".
