Motorola’s upcoming mid-range Razr has leaked, and it should look a bit familiar.

Engadget has gotten its hands on photos of the new device, dubbed the Razr M 4G LTE, which borrows a lot of design cues from other recent Motorola devices.

On the specifications end, the Razr M 4G LTE  will offer a 4.3-inch screen, dual-core-processor, 1GB RAM, and 8GB of storage. So, no — this won’t the most advanced device you’ll find this fall.

That shouldn’t be the biggest surprise. As the obscenely large carrier logo on the phone’s front likely proves, the Razr M 4G LTE is mostly the product of Verizon’s need for a new mid-range phone from Motorola. (Basically, it’s Verizon’s answer to Sprint’s Photon Q 4G LTE.)

Instead, Motorola’s big smartphone this fall is likely to be the oft-rumored Razr HD, the company’s flagship follow-up to last year’s Droid Razr. While we don’t know much about the Razr HD, much of the speculation says that the device’s screen will be its most significant feature.

Either way, we’ll know on September 5th.
