Motorola shows off LTE handset for Rogers

September is barely a week old and already there’s a harvest of new handsets – or at least upcoming handsets.

On Wednesday, Motorola Mobility said that the Razr HD LTE is coming to a number of carriers around the world, including Rogers Communications.

In addition to being able to use the fastest wireless data standard, LTE, the handset has improved battery life. Users can have up to 16 hours of talk time, watch seven hours of YouTube vide, listen to 20 hours of streaming music or surf the Web for up to six hours.

When it comes – and no release data was announced – it will be the first Motorola LTE handset in Rogers’ lineup. So far it only offers the Samsung Galaxy SIII, the Samsung Galaxy Note and the HTC One X. It also offers LTE tablets from Research In Motion and Samsung.

The upcoming Motorola device is 8.4 mm thick, has a 4.7-in. screen protected with Corning Gorilla Glass and runs the Android OS.

There were no details on the CPU or cameras, or pricing from Rogers.

The Razr HD LTE will be exclusive to Rogers.

Motorola has just announced other LTE handsets for U.S. carriers, with no word if they are coming here. They include the 4.3-in Droid Razr M and the Droid Razr Maxx, which appears to be the same as the Razr HD but with a longer life battery.

Motorola Mobility is now owned by Google, the creator of the Android operating system.
