Are these the droids you're looking for?

Google Inc. (GOOG) subsidiary Motorola Mobility today held a special event, looking (perhaps) to capitalize on the market void left by potential handset bans on global market leader and BMOAC (big-man-on-Android's campus) Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930).

Motorola teased three handsets:

Motorola Droid RAZR HD

Storage: 32 GB (internal)
Battery: 3,300 mAh (thickness is rises to 9.3 mm)

Motorola RAZR M 4G LTE

RAZR M

Display: 4.3-in. "qHD" (960x540 pixels)

The new Droid designs feel a bit bland, but to be fair they should come with excellent battery life.  Motorola's current generation Droid MAXX regular tops battery life benchmark charts, thanks to its 3,300 mAh battery.
