Blue Droid RAZR HD before Google X, a foolish purchase?

By Updated on

While all eyes are on the inevitable unveiling of the elusive Google X phone from Motorola, it looks like the smartphone manufacturer has other immediate plans in the meantime. A lovely looking blue version of the popular Droid RAZR HD has been spotted, and it could be joining the other various color schemes for the device on Verizon soon.

We’ve seen evidence from Samsung that if you have a popular phone on your hands, like the Galaxy S3 – release as many versions of it as you can while its still hot. The Droid RAZR HD is already an upgrade from the Droid RAZR released in November 2011, but we hear from EVLeaks that one more color is ready to be churned out – maybe before attention is then switched to the infamous Google X project.

Leak specialists EVLeak have released another official image, showing the unannounced and unreleased blue Droid RAZR HD in the flesh. A blue smartphone is a little strange perhaps to a lot of you – but then again, a lot of consumers love to stand out from the crowd anyway.

As a result, it may not be long at all until we see an announcement from Verizon, stating that a ‘metallic blue’ version of the Droid RAZR HD is coming soon. We expect the color will only be the main change from the original, meaning that hardware specs are likely to remain untouched – Jelly Bean, dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 2530mAh battery and so on.

The question is, are you still willing to pay full price for a Droid RAZR HD, knowing too well that the Google X phone is on the horizon? The mystery device could come with some monster specs, not to mention a brand new version of Android that we haven’t seen before.

Is it really worth taking the gamble on this new color, despite it looking very stylish? Give us your thoughts on the constant color releases for the device.

    The RAZR HD and the RAZR MAXX HD are still strong performing phones nearly seven months after their release. Also they’re packing 25 gigs of app and update space unlike the parsimonious Galaxy S4 16 Gig with only 9 or 10 gigs at one’s disposal for the necessaries. I’m hearing the vaunted X Phone’ll not have an SD card slot, which I hope is wrong because that is something I’ll require in a phone; expandable storage.
