Motorola Droid 4 spied, mixes RAZR roots with keyboard

Motorola Droid 4 seen live for first time

Motorola's rumored Maserati, better known as the Droid 4, has been spotted live for the first time. The design seen by Droid-Life, which should finally bring LTE-based 4G to Motorola's keyboarded phones, takes clear style cues from the Droid RAZR and may be as thin or thinner than the Droid 3. The phone would go on to bring MOTOACTV syncing, suggesting that it would be ready out of the box to post running results as soon as it's paired up.

The redesign would give an opportunity to once again tweak the phone's often touted keyboard. Inside, it may be very similar to the Droid RAZR with the same dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP processor, a 1080p-capable camera (likely eight megapixels), and a Super AMOLED screen, but this is based more on Motorola's tendency to share hardware across devices.

As shown, it's currently running Android 2.3 and looks mostly complete, hinting that Motorola might have the phone out no later than early next year or even before the end of 2011. Conspicuous Verizon branding and preloaded apps imply that it's in late testing. Its timing makes it a strong candidate for a quick upgrade to Android 4.0 either in testing or shortly after it ships.
