All three phones run on the latest version of Google's Android OS, Jelly Bean 4.1, and will be sold through Verizon Wireless, a unit of Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ), the No. 1 mobile carrier, said Google, of Mountain View, Calif.
The Droid Razr has a 4.7-inch screen, double the talk time of its 2011 version with management claiming it offers 85 percent more color saturation than the year-old iPhone 4S from Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), the world's most valuable company. The Razr Max has the same dimensions but 21 hours more talk time and can stream 10 hours of video. The Razr M has a 4.3-inch screen, a high-resolution display and 2,000 milliamp battery.
Prices and shipping dates for the first two devices will be disclosed later. The Razr M will sell for $99 and can be ordered immediately, Google said. Finland's Nokia (NYSE: NOK) unveiled two new smart phones Wednesday and Apple is scheduled to introduce what could be the iPhone 5 next week.
