Motorola is taking its sweet time delivering the Android 4.0 goods to the Droid RAZR users. However, images of what’s purported to be an Ice Cream Sandwich build of Motorola’s custom, unnamed UI have appeared online.

A user on the Droidrzr.com forums posted some screenshots – without words or explanation – showing a slighty-tweaked version of Android 4.0.3 . It was the first and only post the user had ever shared on the site, so it’s either someone trolling the web or trying to share the information without being tracked. Could this really be Motorola’s upcoming UI for Android 4.0?

It’s tough to say. The images look straight forward and little has changed between the default Android 4.0 UI and Motorola’s take on the interface. Motorola’s software typically has more customizations in the launchers, widgets, and lockscreens, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here. A few icons for standard apps have been changed, but the launcher doesn’t appear to have some of the features that Motorola included in the Gingerbread version. Maybe Moto decided to stick closer to the Holo theme of Android, but the company has in the past favored design choices that include more whites, grays, and silvers rather than the darker blacks and grays.

If this truly is what to expect from Motorola, and not just a test build or doctored set of screenshots, it will be a welcome departure from the norm. Take a look at the photos and cross your fingers if you own a Droid Razr. View the full gallery at the source below.
