Motorola beefs up the RAZR with a bigger battery

Motorola’s recently reintroduced RAZR was one of the thinnest smartphones we’d seen, but news today suggests that Moto is looking at making it a little thicker and give it a much bigger battery.

The new edition is called the “RAZR MAXX” and aside for the love of capital letters, the new phone will reportedly feature more juice, with a 3,300mAh battery instead of the standard 1780mAh normally found in this phone.

With almost twice the juice, it’s expected that you should get even more life out of the phone, with this model possibly reaching two to three days of regular use.

Almost everything else about the RAZR will be the same in the MAXX edition, including the 4.3 inch qHD Gorilla Glass-protected screen, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p, and dual-core 1.2GHz processor. Expect the thickness to increase from 7.1mm to accommodate the new battery.

We reached out to Motorola Australia and was told that “Motorola doesn’t comment on product plans”, so here’s hoping that means there’s a plan for this product entering locally.
