One of Motorola's most iconic mobile products is its Razr cellphone. Last week, a video advertisement surfaced on the technology company's website, believed by media outlets to be a sneak peak at the newest addition to that product line. Though enigmatic, the ad alluded to October 18 as a potential release date for the product, according to the Inquirer.
The news source reports that pictures allegedly depicting the new Razr also surfaced today. In these images, the device appears to be thinner than early Razr models, which were known for their slight size. It also features a rear-facing camera, as opposed to other positions in previous versions of the phone.
Technical specifications and compatible smartphone accessories for the new Razr have not yet been officially confirmed. According to media speculation, its features may include an HD-capable camera, a 4.3 inch screen and 4G wireless internet compatibility. Some rumors claim it will contain the newest version of the Android mobile operating system, referred to as "Ice Cream Sandwich." If this is true, it will be the only smartphone to do so other than the Samsung Nexus Prime.
The new Razr is believed to run on the Verizon Wireless 4G network, which has recently been subject to connectivity issues for users throughout the U.S., according to ZDNet.
