It looks like the Motorola Droid 4 – the phone that Moto labeled as “the thinnest and lightest LTE QWERTY phone” – could be available next week. According to this report at Droid Life, sources said that Verizon will be launching the Droid 4 on February 9.
The Droid 4 is basically the Droid RAZR’s twin, coming with the same 1.2GHz processor, LTE-based 4G, 8-megapixel camera and a front cam but with the addition of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also comes with a different screen, rocking a 4-inch LCD instead of the RAZR’s 4.3-inch Super AMOLED.
Definitely a premium package if you’re looking for a QWERTY slider, but here’s the best part: it’s going to be priced at $199 with a two-year contract, which is surprisingly cheaper compared to Verizon’s other high-end LTE smartphones.
