Motorola Spyder/Droid RAZR Shows Up in Photos

Motorola Spyder leakSome pictures popped up this morning of what is being reported to be called the Motorola Spyder … or the Droid RAZR, no one is quite sure yet.

Earlier today This Is My Next showed up with the images you see in this post of what was initially reported to be a new phone called the Motorola Spyder.  Their tipster also provided them with the information that this is the first handset with a 4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD Super AMOLED display.  Besides what should be a gorgeous screen, it will feature Gorilla Glass and a Kevlar casing with splash-guard meaning that besides being nice to look at, it should take a pretty healthy beating as well.  On the inside you can expect 4G LTE support, an unknown dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.  The rear camera is reported to be an 8 megapixel shooter capable of 1080p video, and the front facing will be some form of “HD” lens.  As is Motorola’s way as of late, you’ll also find the Webtop environment installed meaning it will be accompanied by all sorts of docks.

Where things got really interesting, however, is that further reports came in from a known tipster that they had played with the device and that it actually was referred to as the “Droid RAZR” on the About screen.  As you may remember, a photo showed up earlier this month that was reported to have been shot by a phone with that name, and it did appear to be from an 8 megapixel camera.  Yet even more information says this could be the same phone that has been referred to as the “Droid HD” every once in a while.

In short, the phone exists, but what the heck its name will be when it hits retail stores is pretty much anyone’s guess at this point.  For now we just know it sounds like a pretty nice phone and that it may be on its way as early as in time for the holidays, but we’ll just have to wait and see.

You can check out two more angles on the phone below.
