Motorola XT912A is Back in Benchmarks, This Time With 5.2-inch 1080p Display (New Moto X?)

Motorola XT912A is Back in Benchmarks, This Time With 5.2-inch 1080p Display (New Moto X?)

Any chance you remember last year’s mega-leak in March of a Motorola device under the model number XT912A that turned out to be the Moto X? The phone appeared in a full hands-on video that gave us an insanely early and clean look some five months before the phone was officially unveiled. Well, a potentially new Motorola device under that same model number XT912A is back, though this time only in benchmarks over at GFXBench with updated specs. 

The benchmark under this model number is showing us a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920×1080) display, Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 1.7GB of RAM (meaning 2GB), 24GB of storage, an Adreno 330GPU, 12MP camera, and Android 4.4.3.

So what is this? Well, the internet thinks this is a new DROID RAZR because that phone once carried the model number XT912. However, the XT912A that we saw last year ended up being the Moto X. It could be that Motorola is simply using this model number as a way to try and disguise new phones, even if we are now onto it.

I would lean towards this being the new Moto X, a phone that Motorola has already confirmed will be released late summer. It also could be a member of the DROID family, which we would also imagine will be closely related to this year’s Moto X, if last year’s DROID vs. Moto X relationship is anything to go off of.

Specs look good enough for you? We are getting a newer processor (likely with Moto’s X8 Mobile Computing System), 1080p display, and a camera with more MPs. Those seem like upgrades in all the right places to me, at least on paper.

Original DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX Soak Test on the Way, Won’t be Kit Kat

Posted by Kellex January - 5 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

The original or “OG” DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX have an update on the way, which will first begin as a soak test through Motorola’s Feedback Network. Invites were sent out this morning, only saying that this is a preview of a “new software release.” Before you get too excited, no, this isn’t Kit Kat. Motorola has already confirmed through their support pages that the RAZR and MAXX will remain on Android 4.1.2.

I’d imagine this is a bug fixer if anything. Well, it could be a bug fixer, bloatware installer, and connectivity improver. Those are the typical items included in updates to a phone this late in the game. After all, we are looking at phones that are two years old now.

Hey, that’s more than the Galaxy Nexus got.

Cheers Naughty Moto Tester and J!

The Moto X’s Android 4.4 KitKat update may have started rolling out today and the new DROID family may be getting updated soon, but that doesn’t mean other Motorola phones are being left out.

According to Motorola’s website some other phones will be receiving the update as well. You have to drop down the menu and select by carrier to check for your respective phone, but we’ve gathered up a short list. Here is what is tentatively and eventually receiving an update to that latest and greatest version of Android:

Galaxy Nexus and Original RAZR Owners, What are You Upgrading to?

Galaxy Nexus and Original RAZR Owners, What are You Upgrading to?

verizon galaxy nexus

Can you believe that it has been almost two years since Verizon partnered up with Google to release the Galaxy Nexus and Motorola to re-vive the RAZR line? That period of time in late 2011 was easily one of the most exciting in the history of this site and Android in general. For months, we talked about both (some Rezound talk too), with the Galaxy Nexus (or G-Nex as we dubbed it) eventually becoming the phone of choice for many who were upgrading from the original DROID, thanks to stock Android, the “Nexus” brand attached to it, and the hope that updates would be often and timely. But that doesn’t mean that the RAZR (MAXX in particular) wasn’t equally as popular. Verizon threw everything they had at these new DROID phones, showing off their kevlar, new version of Blur, and massive battery life.

But now that we are two years out from all of that hypebeasting, we know that there are some upgrades on the horizon. If you purchased any phone during the end of 2011, you are likely due. With unlimited data being taken away and unattractive tiered or shared plans taking their place, you have a big choice to make. Do you take an upgrade and lose your unlimited data (could try this trick to keep it)? Do you buy at full retail to avoid a contract and keep your current plan? Or do you pack up and leave Verizon for more open pastures? 

There are more than a few amazing phones out there to be had, most of which we have reviewed. The Moto X is probably our in-house favorite of the moment, but the G2 and Galaxy Note 3 are easily as good. The Galaxy S4 is still one of the top three or four phones of the year, plus the HTC One and new DROID family are no slouches. I’m not sure that you can make a bad decision on a phone at this point.

But what if you want the new Nexus? Well, you would have to leave Verizon in order to use it. But if you leave Verizon, where do you go? Prepaid? AT&T or T-Mobile (we wouldn’t recommend Sprint)? We’ll have a post this week that details some of your prepaid options, including a few of the new ones like Aio.

We have had a number of readers ask for our opinions on all of this, but truthfully, we think the community as a whole can help you make a decision much better than we as a few individuals can. So what we’d like to do is have you take to the comments and tell us what your plan is if you have an upgrade on the horizon. Are you sticking with Big Red (or your current carrier)? If so, are you using an upgrade or buying at full retail? Which phone are you targeting? Are you leaving for another carrier? If so, which one? Going prepaid? Going Nexus? Why? We want it all.

Motorola unveils the RAZR D1 and D3 smartphones

Posted by wicked March - 13 - 2013 - Wednesday Comments Off

Motorola has officially unveiled a pair of RAZR branded smartphones. The announcement includes the RAZR D1 and RAZR D3, both of which will initially be headed to Brazil. Similar to some of the other RAZR branded smartphones, Motorola is touting these as offering a long battery life along with “awesome power” and “advanced cameras.” Interestingly enough, Motorola doesn’t offer any specifics on the camera.


Perhaps a bit more realistic, based on a look at the specs, neither seem like they will be a powerhouse. That is not to say they will not have any worthwhile features though. For example, both the RAZR D1 and D3 will be available as a single-SIM and dual-SIM model. The D1 will also come with (or without) support for analog and digital television. Both will also be available in black and/or white and running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.


Otherwise, the RAZR D1 will be sporting a 3.5-inch display, 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and 1785 mAh battery. The RAZR D3 will share some of the same specs including the 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. The D3 will then have a 4-inch display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 2000 mAh battery.

Motorola hasn’t said much in terms of a global release. The wording in the press release states that these handsets “will be available in Brazil.” That aside, the RAZR D1 will be available from March 13 and priced from R$ 549 (for a dual-SIM model with the analog and digital television support). The RAZR D3 will be R$ 799 and is expected to arrive sometime in the next “several weeks.”
