Motorola Droid 4 details firmed up in late leak

(Update: more pics) Motorola's Droid 4 has had its final specifications narrowed down in a sighting that also hints at its near release. The phone caught by Droid-Life is now known to have dual-mode roaming, letting it travel abroad on HSPA 3G even as it gets LTE 4G on Verizon at home. Also new compared to the Droid RAZR is a slight step back in expandability: while the battery still isn't removable, the side door has been replaced with the need for a special removal tool will let users pop the back to add a microSDHC card for storage or swap the micro SIM for 3G.

Outside of the smaller four-inch screen, most other components will be a match for the RAZR, down to the 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP chip, eight-megapixel rear camera, and "HD" (likely 1.3-megapixel) front camera. Users will get 16GB of storage built-in along with Motorola's customized version of Android 2.3, presumably including MotoCast remote streaming and MotoPrint wireless printing.

Verizon staff are already training on the Droid 4, which may inadvertently collide with the Galaxy Nexus release. With a December 8 launch for both, Motorola may risk being overshadowed by the first Android 4.0 phone.

Update: More formal pics have emerged from the same source.
