Ah yes— Verizon’s mysterious DROID Fighter smartphone. Although we’ve seen a hint here and another one there for the device’s imminent arrival, details have been lacking to say the least. Heck, we didn’t even have a picture of the upcoming device or even a general description… until now. The well-known forum Phone HK went ahead and posted up what it is claiming to be an actual screenshot of the Motorola DROID Fighter. In case you’re wondering if this is a case of deja vú, it is. This phone is nearly identical to the well-known Motorola DROID RAZR/DROID RAZR MAXX.
Although the DROID Fighter is similar to the DROID RAZR/DROID RAZR MAXX, there are some key differences. The first you will note is there seems to be a missing bottom row of smart keys. In addition, the device features an HD screen comes in at a whopping 4.6-inches, which is similar to the Galaxy Nexus. This indicates the DROID Fighter will most likely feature on-screen soft keys like the Galaxy Nexus currently features. Finally, there is mention of the smartphone featuring a beefy 3300mAh á la RAZR MAXX.
Sounds like some attractive specs but that brings the question: if MOTO pledged to stop bombarding us with smartphones this year, why bring what is essentially the 3rd variant of the DROID RAZR series (in less than a full calendar year) which only brings a better display, no bottom row of keys and most likely Ice Cream Sandwich? Just something for you all to ponder.
If the mid-April release date is correct, it may look like Verizon will have yet another piece of ammo to its already stocked arsenal. Stay tuned with Talk Android for any more leaks and details of the upcoming DROID Fighter smartphone.
