Waiting for more info on Verizon and Motorola’s next big Droid before tomorrow’s big event? Well then we think you’re gonna love this. What you see above is the first official pic of the upcoming Droid RAZR– and wow does it look incredible. The picture– which has not surprisingly now been taken down– was taken today from Motorola’s teaser site for tomorrow’s event. And while we still don’t know the exact specs we know we can now expect a phone that’s crazy thin (it’s a RAZR after all), has a large screen, a front camera for video chat with a back camera capable of taking 1080p full HD video (meaning it’s most likely an 8 megapixel camera), and has support for Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network.
In short, if you’re looking for a new Verizon phone anytime soon you’re definitely gonna wanna check back here tomorrow for everything you’re gonna want and need to know about this beast. Stay tuned!
If you thought the Atrix 2 was a quick upgrade you ain’t seen nothing yet. Motorola and Verizon have sent out invites for a big event next Tuesday, October 18th, teasing some new devices that are “faster, thinner, smarter, stronger.” And while we’re not sure exactly what devices will be shown off next week, the latest rumors are that we’ll not only see a new Xoom 2 (an upgrade to the original Xoom from earlier this year)– but also the all new Droid RAZR, a super Verizon Android phone that looks to be right up there with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime. Yeah, and this is only a month after the Droid Bionic finally came out.

The rumored specs on the Droid RAZR (though it may also be called the Droid HD) are everything you’d expect of a new top of the line superphone: 1.2 GHZ dual-core processor with 1 GB of RAM (for excellent speed), a 4.3 inch qHD Super AMOLED screen (or an amazing screen that should be right up there with the iPhone 4S’s Retina Display and Samsung’s Super AMOLED Plus screens), an 8 megapixel back camera with an HD front camera (for HD video chat), support for Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network, and a casing made from Kelvar (or a casing from the same material that’s used to make bulletproof vests— yeah, this would definitely be stronger!). Yeah– this looks to be insane.
As usual Motorola put out a teaser video for next week’s big announcement (a video that has a lot of bullets and even a picture of a bulletproof vest at the 20 second mark) which we’ve added after the break. As usual we’ll have all the info you need to know covered for you back here, but if you’re looking for a new Verizon phone we really think you should try to wait it out until next week.
