Motorola has a couple of flagship devices that are going to launch on Verizon Wireless before the pivotal Holiday season.  The two devices are known as the Motorola DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR MAXX HD.  As the names imply, both devices are going to succeed the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX.

The main notable enhancement for the two devices include the introduction of a larger HD display, improved processor, and better battery life across the board.  The only difference for the DROID RAZR MAXX HD is a better battery life which clocks in at 32 hours of normal use, 13 hours of straight video playback, 21 hours of continuous talk time, and eight hours of straight 4G LTE browsing.

Specs and features for both devices include a 4.7 inch Super AMOLED HD 1196 x 720 resolution display, Android 4.0, NFC, 4G LTE, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear facing camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, Kevlar casing, and mobile hotspot capability.

Lastly, the DROID RAZR HD will be available in black or white and the DROID RAZR MAXX HD will be available in black only.  The Android 4.1 update will be available for these two devices before 2012 is over.

Unfortunately, Verizon and Motorola refuse to reveal pricing and availability information.  The only information provided is before the Holiday season.  Since the DROID RAZR M is $99 on contract, my bet is the new DROID RAZR HD is going to be $199, and the DROID RAZ MAXX HD will be $299.
