Droid 4 specs and images leak, launch reportedly set for December 8 on Verizon

It’s really okay if you can’t keep track of Motorola‘s many flavors of Droid phone anymore. Four have been released this year alone: the Droid X2, Droid 3, Droid Bionic and Droid RAZR. Get ready to add a fifth to the pile too, as the Droid 4 has been revealed, detailed and tentatively dated for a late 2011 release.

The news comes by way of leaked info and specs obtained by Droid Life. It looks like the plan right now is to release the Droid 4 on Verizon on December 8, though consider that nothing more than a rumor until the company officially confirms it.

The device itself is very much real, however, as you can see in the images above. It’s like a mash-up of the Droid 3 and the RAZR, with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 4-inch screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. There’s one notable difference, however, and it’s the one that Droid fans have been waiting for: 4G connectivity. The Droid brings you your data at a blazing fast rate thanks to its ability to make use of Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Stay tuned for further details, like price and a confirmed release date, once the official announcements roll in.
