The Motorola Spyder, also known as the Droid RAZR or the Droid HD, has leaked many times so far. And it even seems that it will get its official unveiling on October 18, mere hours before Google and Samsung hold their Ice Cream Sandwich and Galaxy Nexus event.
So far we’ve even seen the upcoming Motorola smartphone in a picture once, and it undoubtedly looks sleek. We’ve also heard rumors here and there about the Spyder’s specs, but now we have some details which are less vague. These come from BGR, who have apparently “confirmed” these specs, though it’s unclear just how.

Anyway, let’s play ball here. The Spyder, or Droid HD, or Droid RAZR (unfortunately there still is no consensus as to what it will actually end up being called) will come with a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch touchscreen, and 4G LTE support. In fact, it’s said to be the thinnest 4G LTE device to date, and that leaked picture from a while ago certainly seems to back that point up nicely.
The phone is said (note that there’s no attribution) to be “faster than the iPhone 4S”, although on a pure spec level by this time many high-end Android smartphones are faster than Apple’s newest creation. That said, day to day usage may or may not accurately translate those specs into real life, we’ll have to wait and see. Still, it seems pretty clear that Verizon and Motorola are gunning for the iPhone in the campaign they’re prepping for this new device.
Rumored physical attributes for the Droid RAZR, Spyder, or Droid HD also include splash resistance, a case molded out of kevlar, and a Gorilla Glass screen. Of those, the latter is probably the safest bet. Anyway, we’ll know everything for sure next week, so have just a bit more patience until then.
