Just yesterday, we were speculating on what hides behind the mysterious device announced as the Moto Luge. Today, the irrelevant partial specs details which caused the whole fuss changed into a complete list of tech parameters coming along with the Verizon’s display card for the phone. It looks like the carrier, following the path of least resistance, isn’t offering anything new for their pre-paid service customers, but just a rebranded version of the Droid Razr M.
Motorola Luge – an updated version of the Droid Razr M smartphone
The Droid Razr M debuted two years ago, so it’s no wonder that everyone experiences the sense of déjà vu seeing exactly the same device scheduled to debut on August 28th. The headed for Verizon Moto Ludge is just a bit updated version of the Droid Razr M. The most noticeable improvements include: 4G LTE connectivity and Android 4.4.4. Kitkat accompanied by the whole variety of the Motorola’s new apps like Assistant and the veiled in mystery “Moto Aware”. Since, devices from that period don’t get updates any longer, it will be interesting to see how the old Droid Razr M works on the newer version of Android.
The another, less important, difference between the old and new Moto Luge is the front-facing camera, which now has been upgraded to 0.9-megapixel from previous 0.3 megapixel one. Is it only my opinion or you agree with me that such optic parameters seem ridiculous in the age of selfie addiction, when a 5-megapixel front shooter becomes a standard?
Aside from the software and high speed data transfer, we will get the same stuff we had when buying the Droid Razr M. So, the new Moto Luge sports the well-known Razr M’s 4.3-inch 540x960p display, which is rumored to be covered with the durable Gorilla Glass 3, the 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 combined with 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. All these will be powered by a 2000mAh non-removable battery.
The Moto Luge is said to hit stores shelves this Thursday with the off-contract price tag of $149. You may buy one via a special online promo offer including the $45 per month prepaid plan that gives you unlimited calls and text with 500MB of data. Summing up, it doesn’t sound like a bad offer, especially when taking into consideration the fact that the very similar in terms of specs but lacking LTE connectivity Moto G cost $199. The choice belongs to you.
