A few days ago we reported that Verizon had a new Motorola smartphone that was on the cusp of being launched. Dubbed the Motorola Luge, it was essentially a rebranded Droid RAZR M and we have to wonder why Motorola and Verizon would even bother with such an old device, but for those looking for a smartphone that doesn’t break the bank, Verizon has officially announced the Motorola Luge.
The handset will cost Verizon customers $200 off-contract, meaning that the phone can be yours for that sum of money and you will not be tied to a new contract with Verizon. However given that the Droid RAZR M was launched two years ago, its specs are out of date but we guess if you just want a backup phone, perhaps it could be the phone for you (although we think there are better phones that can be had for the money).
In terms of specs, just in case you guys have forgotten about the Droid RAZR M, the Motorola Luge will sport a 4.3-inch qHD display with Gorilla Glass. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. It will be accompanied by 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2,000mAh battery, NFC, and we guess the good news is that it will come with Android 4.4 KitKat preinstalled.
If you’re interested in getting your hands on the phone, you can hit up Verizon’s website to place your orders. So, any takers?
