Additional Leaked Shots Of The DROID RAZR and XOOM2 Emerge

The Motorola “Spyder” (aka DROID RAZR) and XOOM2 are no secret and have been leaked already, however the more pictures the merrier. The Xoom 2, in this case is the 8.2-inch version and is said to be in “better shape” than the earlier leaks.  The Spyder is also sporting what looks to be a rugged backside for enhanced grip.  Interestingly enough, Engadget’s source has said that this particular Spyder is clocked at 1.5GHz, although the final version will indeed be 1.2GHz.

Could we be seeing both of these at the Motorola and Verizon event set for October 18? Feel free to sound off in the comments, and check out the full gallery after the break.

  • It was only matter of time. I was wondering when they were going to bring “RAZR” back. Such a huge hit back in the day. I wish them good luck.

  • Jak_341

    Motorola need to give it up already. They release half baked phones and tablets that simply don’t work. Nexus Prime is going to pwn this phone. I wonder if it is even going to sell 10,000 nationwide?

  • Whats with the buttons on the bottom?  Thats so 2011.

    Looks nice, but I’m more than satisfied with my Bionic. Glad I didn’t wait for the Prime, my week with a Droid Charge turned me off Samsung forever. I’ll take Moto’s build quality and vastly superior radios over an “open” device any day; it’s pretty hard to utilize a powerful phone when the data connection is reset every few minutes. 

  • Brandon Dellos

    Wow! Razr looks like crap… won’t be buying! Nexus rime all the way!!

  • It is great to have a choice coming to VZW.  Razr, Prime, and Vigor (maybe) are all geared to high end users.  It would be nice to be able to make a side-by-side comparison when I want to make my purchase.

  • You guys owe me. I was at CTIA today, having a discussion with one of the Moto marketing guys. He hadn’t seen the RAZR pics yet, so I pointed him to your site, which he also didn’t know about, but now wants to put into part of the training material.

    Is it just me, or does the Spyder look like a dummy unit?

  • Alexander Garcia

    For reasons I can not explain, I am much more drawn to this bad boy than the upcoming Nexus Prime! Must be the Moto Fanboyism in me I suppose. That kevlar backplate is absolutely awesome!

      We are on the same boat. I cant leave moto’s sound and build quality 🙂 the radios on their devices are awesome.

      • Alexander Garcia

        Yes most definitely. Their high end devices are built like timeless quasi-classic tank-armored beasts. Proud and happy of a Droid X2 myself. And their radios… they sure as hell kno

            So far the Moto screens leave alot to be desired,maybe this will change that. And the camera’s as well are slow. I’m goin for the Vigor or Prime or Nexus whichever whatever the Sammy phone(s) will be. The Bionic debacle has soured me on Moto….

    This is what the Bionic should have looked like after a year of going back to the drawing board.

      I prefer the Bionic’s design.

  • Johnszumigata

    Looking for some help on this matter. I had been waiting for the Bionic since it was announced at CES. I weathered the delays and then finally 8 days after the release I went to a Verizon Company Store and bought the Bionic. It had everything I wanted: Big Screan, Dual core and LTE. Also I wanted to have Motorola’s flagship handset. I dont like Samsung or LG devices and HTC just has had way too many battery life issues. So I made my decision after a considerable amount of research I was going to forego the Vigor, revoltion2 (?) and tbe Prime. I was going to treat myself after 3 years of owning a BB Curve (which never gave me a problem and its battery would last for days if it needed to) and buy a Bionic. I bought it on September 16th. Yesterday my heart nearly stopped when I read that the Spyder/Razr was going to be announced October 18th. The Bionic has been great for me and I love how fast it is especially when compared to the old Edge Blacberry. The onlu issues I have with the thing is the display isn’t as nice as some of the other phones. The heft of the phone is also a bit much with the extended battery. It seems as if both of these issues are fixed with the Razr/Spyder as well as being FASTER!!!! Considering that I am a 15 year customer of Verizon I decided to give them a call and see if there was anything they could do for me. After over an hour on the pbone pleading my case the final answer was that I was 10 days past my “worry free” return period that there was nothing that could be done especially considering that there have been no official releases made regarding the introduction of the new phone. Am I wrong to be upset that my “master of all machines” will be obsolete 45 days after it was released and 32 days after I bought it? I just think that in April when Verizon shrunk their return period from a month to 14 days they new this exact situation was on the horizon. If anyone has some constructive advice as to who to write to or any other words of wisdom it would be appreciated.

    • Anonymous

      Sorry about your situation. Technology does move fast nowadays. Try this. Sell your Bionic on eBay and then buy the RAZR outright (no contract price). If you can sell the Bionic for about $400+, then you’ll only have to shell out another $100 for the RAZR. Depends on how bad you want the phone, but this is the only solution I can think of. 

      • Johnszumigata

        Thanks for the advice. Do people really buy used phones on ebay for $400?

        • GiantKN

          I sold mine for $400 as Buy It Now in about 15 minutes.  If you’re going to sell it, do it now while it’s worth this much.

    • Anonymous

      not sure where you got the idea that this phone will somehow fix your issue with bionic display and size. motorola has been introducing only pentile displays, which i’m pretty sure this phone will also sport a variation to it. this phone will be thin but i also believe it will not have an interchangeable battery, and until it is out, there is no guarantee the battery life would be better.

    • Stick with what you have. Kruck55 has a point but think about it..is shelling out an extra 100 to 200 on top of what you just spent for a marginal upgrade worth it. By Dec or Jan you will be hearing rumors about the next “flagship” Moto device and you will have even more regret. In the future, consider buying phones ‘strictly’ off contract, but in the meanwhile…best advice to you is to be content with your purchase. It’s an arms race in the Android world…there never will be a single ‘best device’ for years to come..those days are gone.

      The razor will have a better display and a better build quality, but other than they are close in specs. You can add another line and have two devices like i do :). You can also sell your bionic and get this one if the display bothers you so much.

    •  VZW changed their policy from a 30-day return to a 14-day return.  The simple fact of the matter is that you did not make an informed decision.  There was no doubt in the air at all that this was a hunk of crap coming out.  VZW and Moto had to just decide on a date to dump it to get some money back. 

      #1 You should have taken the Bionic and put it next to older phones.  You could easily tell how crappy the display was.  You didn’t even need to do a side-by-side comparison.

      #2 Before the Bionic was released, VZW announced it passed on the SGS2 (a much better phone) for something coming that was better.  This alone should have told you to hold out. 

      #3 Buying on or near launch day is crazy.  It is the highest price you would pay for it.  In the next week or two, it will sell for maybe $100. 

      #4 “Master of all machines” was a marketing scheme to get uneducated consumers to purchase it.  At the time, it was.  However, it no longer is.

      You have options.  Try selling it on the open market and buy a real phone at retail pricing.  You can even look at the cost of canceling your contract, selling the phone, and then opening a new account.  Any way you slice it, you will lose money.

      Next time, do a little more research and not buy into the fanboyism.

    • Kris Brandt

      Unfortunately, you can’t return it.  However, if you say you lost the phone (walk into a store and say you lost it and don’t have a warranty), they can most likely give you a new 2-year contract on another phone.  

      • Anonymous

        most likely they wont do that and would make you buy one full retail, which if you lost it why would you wait a few more weeks to get a phone???

    • Anonymous

      Stick with the Bionic.  There is always going to be something better coming out.  People have pretty much forgot about the Vigor because of the Prime, but guess what, quad cores are right around the corner and the Prime will be stated to be obsolete.  Plus, they are just announcing the phone which doesn’t mean they are releasing it any time soon.  We are getting to the point of diminishing returns with these phones.  How much power do you really need??  Dual core with LTE is what this phone is about which for the average user is more then is needed.  The uber-nerds want the best and brightest but they will be waiting till eternity to find the perfect phone.  There is no such thing because if there was, then no one would sell any more phones ever.  As for the screen, if you don’t like it then that would be the reason to try and get a new one.  Personally, I don’t have a problem with it.  It is better then the X2’s screen and from a color reproduction, close to the beloved OG Droid screen.  It is not over saturated like the AMOLED ones but some people like it.  Basically, you will always be chasing specs, don’t base decisions like this solely on this since……it is just a phone to make calls and that should be the primary focus of buyers.

      This Razr is only a moderate improvement, mostly in the screen.  The Bionic is nowhere close to being obsolete.  The only reason you should get the Razr is if you feel the screen is worth it, otherwise you can barely call it an upgrade.

  • Bionic

    Maybe its me but I find it hilarious that so many people are so picky about how phones LOOK.  Its a device that goes in your pocket or in a case/pouch for crying out loud.  I totally understand if a phone is REALLY REALLY ugly.  But I dont think recent motorola phones qualify as that.

      cell phone has evolved to a necessity these days, much like a wallet. i know people who won’t leave their house without their phone. when you are paying so much for an item that you spend so much time with, whats wrong with wanting a nice design. i like the design of motorola phones, but this spyder is something else, its definitely ugly lol

    • Anonymous

      They are good looking devices all of them. The look of the photon, droid x and atrix are the best looking ones among moto devices.

    •  Tell that to a crApple owner.  If it was shaped, looked, and smelled like a turd, they would still argue that it was the best design and phone ever.  So, yes.  People do care about what a phone looks like.  Personally, I don’t.  I just want the phone to be able to handle what I throw at it and have the latest technology.  Unfortunately, crApple does not provide that.

    I never thought I would see the day that Nexus (prime) fanboys would be even more annoying the iPhone fans. Seriously, holy shit shut up with your constant high expectations. “OMIGOSH IT HAS BUTTONS ITS GAY!!!”. I’m a bit bummed it has Moto’s proprietary UI, but seriously it’s not as bad you people make it out to be. Have you ever even tried it rather than make up your own assumptions just by looking at screenshots and declaring it as shit? It’s just like the Droid Bionic all over again, people are going to continue to hate without even using the device. Some part of me actually hopes the Nexus Prime becomes a bigger disappointment than the iPhone 4S, but then you people would never stop your whining.

    • shdowman

      I actually don’t hate on the device.

      I think most people who are cautious, is because Moto has a track record of being “subpar” in some areas of their phones (camera, updates, software). All anyone has to go on right now are these leaked images.

      For myself, I think it is hideous design-wise. That’s just me though. I get that they are trying something different and attempting to differentiate their phones from other flat black slabs on the market, I just think they could do better.

      As for the Galaxy Nexus, let people be excited. Nothing wrong with that and who are you to take it from them. In the same sense, I wouldn’t take from you, your right to be excited over this phone. I hope it is awesome and you enjoy it for many months.

    Whatever happened to the Vigor? I really wanted that phone. I like Sense 3.0 and it has 2 more home screens than this RAZR with Blur. Guess we’ll never see it, with all of HTC troubles right now. I’m not impressed with this phone, just seems like a faster Bionic. 

    • Bionic

      by your logic the vigor is just a faster thunderbolt

        Not really. Dual core vs single core, Sense 3.5 vs Sense 2.1, 720p v 800×480 screen, 2MP front vs VGA. Much more than RAZR’s 200 Mhz speed upgrade and a more durable case.

    Doesn’t matter how strong the processor is, Blur will slow it to a crawl. No thanks, Galaxy Nexus for me!!

    I am just NOT a fan of Motorola’s designs. I own the Droid X, and while it was the best Verizon phone on the market at the time (Jan 2011) — great hardware, features, stability, and Motorola’s frequent OS updates — I’ve never been a fan of the looks of their phones. Their phones have always been ugly to me — behind Samsung and HTC in the looks department…

    why are they underclocking it to 1.2 ghz when it is released? htc is going to be the first verizon to run 1.5 ghz.

      They are over clocking the bionic processor TI Omap 4430, not underclocking it for release, maybe if it was the Omap 4460 they would be underclocking it, but word is the 4460 will be a min of 1.5ghz.  they were probably working on this phone the same time as the bonic with every intention of making it just a bit better and past most bionic owners return point.  Low blow by moto.

    At least they are small.  A quick thought here: Moto doesn’t skin Honeycomb, do they?  Could there be a chance that they drop blur for ICS?  Doesn’t make sense to skin one and not the other if the Tabs and phones are on the same OS.

    • KevinC

      Motorola’s only Honeycomb tablet is the Xoom, which is a Google Experience Device.  You can bet they’ll skin ICS, just like they did for everyone phone after the Droid.

    I get it now! The droid 3 was the soak test for the Bionic, which is the soak test for the RAZR!

    They release one with many bugs, and release the next one which has been delayed for 9 months with also many bugs! Then, they offer Bionic owners a fix 2 months after the device is released! I wonder how long it’ll take for Motorola to forget about Bionic owners when the RAZR is released. Trust me, this is a guy who’s been waiting for the Droid 2 Global update fix one month after Gb, which took 10 months to get to us, was released.

    Im so mad the day i didnt put the otterbox on my bionic was the day i dropped the phone will i bent over to pick up my keys i dropped when i left this hospital it hit the pavement by where my car was parked.. the phone just fell under two feet at best and bounced a little and chipped the top left corner of the bessel and the bottom  left and bottom right of the bessel.. (the shiny part where the Verizon logo) anyway those three corners scratched up bad.. not horrible but now i know it lost value since i was planning on selling this on ebay for the upcoming nexus..  I had the extended battery that day i dropped it so the otterbox didnt fit.. sucks!!  Sorry had to vent.. im wondering how bad this will be when i mention it on the auction..yes im honest.  ugh.. so beware if you own this phone that couldnt handle one single drop.. i have seen people drop OG Droid and i have dropped my Droid X plenty of times and survived perfectly but this one ooppsie doopsie with the Bionic didnt.  Anyway, seeing this new phones being announced now and till the holidays is making me want to see this.. probably  now sadly at a discount lol.

    OK… With the rear-view of the phone now, I am a bit concerned. It looks like it confirms the non-removable battery. Anyone else see a battery door here? That is not to say they won’t have an accessory piggy-back battery that tucks in neatly into the space created by the slight lip of the camera sensor though. I definitely see that as possible, even likely.As for the camera sensor, from the outside, it looks to be the same stupid, horrible, crappy, grainy, crappy, stupid, grainy and horrible 8MP shooter they have been using since the X. Please don’t be. We need a Moto with a nice camera.As for the design, I actually like it. I like the industrial design of the Motorola Droids and this is better than the Bionic or D3 in terms of design (no cheap plastic Samsung-esque battery door). It is like the difference between driving a muscle car and a compact import. Sure the import gets better fuel economy and may handle a little better, but the raw nature of the muscle car is part of the appeal of the muscle car. Just more fun.

    no ICS no thanks

  • Daniel Archibald33

    So I recieved a letter from Moto thanking me for being the first person to send my Xoom 3G in for the 4G upgrade. I recieved a brand new HD Dock with letter too. Pretty sweet. I guess it pays to be patient with Motorola!

      Moto are good with us. Many people in here hate them because they lock the bootloader. Moto does not care about 1 % of users that enjoy rooting and doing all the nonsense.

  • Mike Tarakjian

    RAZR with Blur, or Galaxy Nexus with stock ICS? I think I’ll pass this time, Moto.

    • Anthony Etter

      the razr has/atleast is rumored to have a qhd super amoled plus display, where the nexus doesn’t have a super amoled plus hd display. I herd/read that it will have a pentile matrix hd display. Though their pentile matrix display is better than Motorola’s one. Either way I don’t need a new phone. I have the bionic in my possession. 

      • John

        Pentile matrix won’t matter.  PPI should be too high to see it, no?

        • as far as the ppi is concerned it should be more than good.. 
          i’m just scared about the refresh rate being as bad as the bionic..

      • Cooksta3276

        What is the difference between superAmoled and superamoledplus? Accepting the fact, that they are obviously all HD.

        • Regular Super AMOLED is usually RGBG Pentile subpixel arrangement, where as the Plus is regular RGB stripe without Pentile.

I know I’ll probably say the same thing when jellybean comes out that the next will be better. Oh and I prefer no skin and an unlocked or “unlockable bootloader.

            Moto does not use blur anymore moron. Blur was bad on the droid x while it was on froyo. The 516 of ram did not help either. The new Moto UI is neat and fast 🙂 You need to read more about technology before posting crap in here. Sammy plastic fanboy lol

          • wintersun

            I have nothing more to say other than you have no clue what you’re speaking of. It makes no sense for me to keep arguing with a retard. Everyone who knows anything knows that Motorola still uses blur and you couldn’t be any further from the truth you Motorola ignorant Motorola fan boy.

          • Anonymous

            I feel that you are angry because you can’t get it up. Go buy some cialis stupid punk. Moto does not use blur. They use Moto ui idiot. I rather be a Moto fanboy than htc or Sammy. Moto and Google revolutionized android. Htc tried with the g1 and it failed terribly. Go learn a few things first before you begin a discussion.

          • A few of things, the “Moto UI” (Motoral Software Plateform is the new term for it now) as you call it is still “Motoblur”, the only thing they did was not call it “Motoblur”.  It was nothing more than  a name change. That was a PR move.  Motorola didn’t revolutionize anything, they only brought Android to the mainstream.  Google revolutioned Android seeing as how it’s they’re product and it was something that was bound to grow. HTC did try, but they did not fail terribly.  Their choice in an initial carrier wasn’t the best but it wasn’t a total fail.  HTC and the “MyTouch” series got it and Google to a point to branch out.  Otherwise HTC wouldn’t be the top Android smartphone manufacturer it is today.  I recommend you do some learning and fact checking before you spew ignorance and throw insults at people who don’t agree with you.  It may make you sound intelligent, instead of sounding like a blithering idiot.

          • Anonymous

            you just sounded like a fool, when you said that htc did not fail terribly. HTC a good manufacturer? lol you make me laugh. HTC does not have good radios, cheap speakers and they use old gpc to all their new devices. You do some research and search for the sales of the droid 1 2009 and droid x 2010. You will see that the only idiot in here is you. Everything that i type in here i back it up stupid sheep. Moto did change their ui the one in the bionic its not the same as the droidx on froyo 🙂

            This is part of your post from earlier, “Have you seem the htc amazed? That device is looking nice. T mobile owners will be happy tomorrow”

            No one is insulting you or calling you an idiot. If you want respect, give it. If you want to continue to make an ass out of yourself, keep replying foolishly. Also, if you haven’t noticed, people correct your grammar because: a. it’s hard to understand and b. typically people who aren’t idiots (such as yourself) know how to use words in the correct tense. 🙂

            It’s people like you who ruin the Android community because in the end it’s still the OS we come here to read about. Just because you don’t like a phone or manufacturer doesn’t mean someone else doesn’t. I’m not sure how that’s so hard to understand and why it’s necessary to call someone an idiot who doesn’t agree with you.

      I don’t understand it. Does Sanjay and Motorola not frequent android blogs? Do they not see that no one, with a few exceptions, want blur? Are they just stubborn? “Ahh, they’ll come around. You’ll see.” 

      • Blur on the Bionic is irrelevant.  Seriously.  Doesn’t bog it down AT ALL, and with Go Launcher EX you never have to SEE it either – so who cares?  These new devices handle it just fine.  This “Ugh… Blur…” crap is getting old people.  Shut it.

            Im willing to bet that, A) Thats supposed to be “carbon fiber” and not carbon kevlar, and B) its actually some sort of plastic, as Im sure 5-10$ might sound cheap to you, but you probably arent considering that Motorola would have to multiply that price by tens of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.

        Honestly now, the specs on this are a minimal improvement over the Bionic, 200 MHz faster processor, same ram, same memory, same camera, same battery, same LTE, a little thinner, possibly better screen?  The Nexus Prime will be replaced with the Galaxy S3 a few months later, there will always be something new and improved coming out.

        • Anonymous

          If it is this similar why are they releasing it? They should have released this as the bionic.

        I think he just got a little carried away on his choice of wording there. I had (and dearly miss) the OG Droid, and while i would never call it crap, i can say that it didnt have enough ram for anything further than froyo. I ran CM7 nightlies and obviously Petes GPA’s, and they plagued my OG with redraws, apps shutting down, and basically all telltale signs of a device that needed more ram. But, in its defense, on froyo, the thing hauled ass like my Chevy 😛
