Could Motorola be looking to capitalize on two of its most recognizable brands by introducing a device known as the Droid RAZR? Let’s take it as a huge rumor for now, but a test photo (above) from the supposed device’s camera has surfaced with EXIF data claiming the name. Now, EXIF data can sure enough be faked, but there is reason to believe a Droid RAZR could be real.

Aside from the fact that the pairing makes almost perfect sense, there is the glossed over handset known as the Motorola Slimline (seen above) to ponder. The only mention of the device comes from a Motorola website redesign leaked back in the spring. But that mention included a render of the device (seen below), and in hindsight it does look mighty RAZR-y. The original feature phone was known for its slim profile, and it would follow that a device codenamed the Slimeline could be easily rebranded under the RAZR name.

We’ve heard no other whisperings about the a the Slimline let alone its connections to a possible RAZR smartphone, so we’re not quite sure what to think of this one. The idea sounds like a mountain full of gold waiting to be mined, but we’ll have to wait and see what other information we can gather from Verizon and Moto before getting completely behind this rumor.
