Motorola Droid 4 brings dual-core processor, Verizon LTE

updated 02:55 pm EST, Mon January 9, 2012

"Thinnest and lightest" LTE QWERTY handset

Motorola has introduced the latest device in its Android lineup, the Droid 4. The handset keeps to the tradition that began with the original Droid, advancing the QWERTY slider into the 4G LTE era. The fourth-generation model measures 0.5-inches thick, similar to the earlier models, however the company claims it is the "thinnest and most powerful" QWERTY LTE smartphone.

A dual-core 1.2GHz processor powers Android 2.3.5, which will eventually be upgraded to an Android 4.0 build. The interface is presented on a 4.0-inch qHD display protected by a scratch-resistant touch panel.

Like the new Droid Razr, the Droid 4 features a water-repellent coating on the internal components to help protect against water damage. Other features include 16GB of integrated storage, edge lighting on the keys, data encryption, an eight-megapixel camera capable of recording 1080p video, and LTE hotspot functionality for up to eight devices.

The Droid 4 is expected to arrive at Verizon stores sometime in the next few weeks, however pricing details have yet to be announced.
