White Motorola DROID RAZR in the Works?

Could we see a white version of the DROID RAZR in the coming months? According to this shot from Verizon, one has at least been entered into their device management system. We have seen all white phones from Samsung, HTC and LG, but this is sort of new territory for Motorola. Sure they had partially white phones with the DROID 2 Global and the R2-D2, but we are imagining white all over this slender beast. Sort of odd to see this version loaded into the system at the same time as the regular RAZR, but that could mean a variety of things.

I’m a big fan of the RAZR design and would welcome in another color. If I had any skills whatsoever with Photoshop, I would try to whip up a render, but will instead hope that one of fabulous readers can make it happen. :)

This interest anyone? Maybe by the time they release it, the Google merger will have been 100% finalized and we will start to see some unlocked bootloaders? Wishful thinking, I know.

Update:  Mockup of the white RAZR after the break by reader theShuke

    Also why does your screen shot of the dates say 10/01/2011

  • Venomhatch

    That’s not even how it looks. Here, attached is a pic of the phone strait from myself a Verizon source. But sadly Us low on the totem-pole sales agents cant get a release date yet. Has anyone else had better luck?

      It’s called invert in Photoshop

  • Dbarden31

    Anyone with this device notice the capacitive menu and search keys are very pixalated or do I just have a defective device? The back and home keys look just fine.

  • Dbarden31

    I just got the Razr a few days ago and I like it for the most part. 2 things though. I heard a few people say the screen hurts their eyes. I browse and text a lot so i have definitely noticed the difference coming from my OG Droid and my wife has the Inc2. Felt like the display was playing tricks on my eyes. Not comfortable tbh. #2: I have a tiny tiny teal colored dot or pixel or whatever to the center left of my screen that WON’T go away. Anyone have this problem? Will VZW fix this? I know its small but it gets annoying (probably bcuz I know its there)

    • Mark Day

      I work with displays such as this on a daily basis. It sounds like the display has a bad pixel. This should fall under the realm of a manufacturer defect. Take it back to VZW and request a NEW replacement.

      • Dbarden31

        Thanks for the info. I will definitely be going into Verizon today and requesting a new device.

    Any chance of being able to upgrade from 2.0 to 4.0 (Icecream Sandwhich)?

  • Tyler

    Red phones are the best! Even though I’m getting a galaxy nexus, i envy the Rezound’s red accents :)

    • Mark Day

      I’m a fan of red as well. Ordered the DInc2 in red on Thanksgiving day. Sure I would have liked to have gotten a RAZR (like the white concept) or G-Nex or another 4G phone, but can’t afford the expense right now. As my DX is dying on me, the free DInc2 in red was the perfect deal for me.

  • MOTOX

    looks pretty sexy, just bought my dad a razr…now teaching him how to use a “smartphone”. Ugh, think he likes it…lol….now getting my rezound. :)

  • PowerofPicture

    An all metallic chrome or silver finish would’ve been better, kind of like the original Razr.  White is too fruity.

  • Lnestroy

    what about the non removable battery? 

  • Anonymous

    Oh, wow, that is beautiful in white.  I want one. I really like the silver and white – looks super classy to me, and I don’t normally like the looks of white phones.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mariafe.c.oneill Maria Fe Camaya O’Neill

    I just came back from the mall where i played with this phone. Very impressed ! Nice looking, love the kevlar and the screen looked good to me. It was nice and smooth too but what i liked best was the feel of this phone. Despite how thin it is it felt so sturdy, not a hint of flex in it, it felt like i could turn it on it’s side and start hammering nails with it. I love my Nexus S but it just feels fragile even though i know it’s not. I truely hope that Moto gets a shot at making a Nexus phone in the future. Pure Andriod, fast up dates and Moto’s quality build would be a dream phone for me!

    I’m wondering what “Motorola Droid X 2 GB” with the date 2/7/2011 is all about?! Those aren’t release dates…what dates are those?

    • Mark Day

      I believe that is when they started shipping the DX with 2GB microSD, rather than the original 16GB microSD.

    A lot of nexus vs motor going on….people are getting crazy up in here

    • bigrob60

      Seriously. It’s starting to remind me of Engadget’s android vs apple B.S. 

      • Nexusisforsheep

        Nexus fans are becoming annoying. People feel the need to state the truth about their moto devices. To nexus fans all other phones are junk. Which is definitely not the case. Razr is a great phone.

        • bigrob60

          I’m waiting for the nexus myself but I’m not about to tell people that there stupid for wanting the Razr or another phone. 

  • http://twitter.com/Daisyville Gina

    LOVE IT!!!!!!! I have the perfect pink stick-on jewels to bedazzle the white!

  • Toastedpet

    The Google/Motorola merger is the one thing that keeps me interested in these phones. I’d love, and buy the Droid4 if I knew they weren’t going to skin ICS and happily wait for that update. Have you heard anything about their stand on “blur” after the deal goes through?

      This thing looks sexy in white….as will my nexus with a white case.

    • Droid

      did you just invert the colors? ie make all white/silver black and all black white?

      • theShuke

        yep, just inverted the colours plus two seconds of Photoshop to get the screen, camera, flash, and speaker back to their original colours.

        • Anonymous

          I’m sure the brushed aluminum with the Motorola label at the top won’t be inverted.

          I bet the M on the back stays black too…otherwise awesome

      If you don’t care why don’t you just disregard every post that isn’t emblazoned with Nexus in the title and instead devote that time to spanking it to that crudely photocopied Nexus poster on your wall or something?

    Maybe in the coming months it’ll lose the physical buttons give it a 720p display and it’ll be pre-loaded with some yummy ice cream sandwich. That’s what I want.

    White wouldn’t look very nice.

    Are they trying everything they can to make people go with the RAZR instead of the Nexus? This is so pathetic.

    • Anonymous

      Most white android phones don’t look as good as their black counterparts. I know I’ll get flak for this, but I personally thing the white Nexus S, for one thing, looks ridiculously ugly and inconsistent w/ its white back and black front. Reminds me of the white iPhone 3G/3GS (though slightly prettier).

      • Jason Purp

        I agree. I think the only smartphone that could pull of the white color scheme is the iPhone (or any other phone that is made to originally be white, of course). I guess this recoloring is a new thing Verizon will be doing from now on.

        • Anonymous

          I think some could have the potential, but the need to be more than a half-assed new back cover. And maybe off-white or silver rather than just ridiculously pure white. It’s a little off-putting. The G-Nex could look cool if it were maybe just a brighter silver (aluminum color, not really shiny). This HTC re-colorings are the worst offenders, they look awful in white. In a nice dark red or green, though…

          Damn, now I want a forest green G-Nex. As if wanting a Verizon G-Nex wasn’t enough of a pipe dream!

            Green would be nice. I want one in ACU digital camo. lol

        I love the nexus s in white, even more than the black. And I love the sgs2 in white. I’d like to see the galaxy nexus in white

        • Anonymous

          That’s fine. I’m not trying to insult you or anyone who thinks it does look good, I personally just dislike it. I actually think that mockup of the white RAZR is one of the best looking white Android phones I’ve seen (Droid R2-D2 notwithstanding).

          I don’t think anyone around here is torn between the two devices.  This site is usually divided into three camps.  Two larger ones that all about THEIR phone, and the other side is stupid, and then a small subset of us who think you guys are silly.
