The new Razr looks like a typical Motorola handset, but it looks thinner with a rear-facing HD camera. In the US, it is expected to come on Verizon with the 4G technology. Some of the features that are possibly in the phone include a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen. The Razr could also be powered by the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). The only problem is that Google is yet to announce the first device with the ICS, on the other hand, Motorola has said that the announcement is a joint one with Google.
