Motorola announced Razr i for the UK consumers powered by a 2Ghz Intel Atom processor. The American company, busy announcing devices this September has spiked the processor for the UK users from its previous variant Razr M, which was released for the US customers.
This smartphone consolidates the partnership between Motorola and Intel, which was announced a year ago. Razr i will be the first Android phone to clock such speeds as Intel confirmed the creation as one of a kind.
The processor is single core chip, but Intel’s 32nm manufacturing process and Hyperthreading technology has lead the company to claim that it will outperform dual-core equivalents in web browsing and gaming. Andrew Morley, Vice President of International Marketing Motorola said, “This is our biggest launch since the Razr and is the first result in the collaboration with Intel. We are literally pushing design to the edge.”
Droid Razr i has a 4.3-inch, super AMOLED display, weighs 126 grams and is 8.3mm thick. The smartphone runs on Android 4.0 and will be upgradeable to Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. The battery of the new device is 2000mAh cell and the body of the phone uses Kevlar, aluminium and Gorilla Glass in its creation.
Motorola’s new android phone will be available in October, Clove, an online retailer in the UK has a SIM-free Razr i available for a pre-order price of £342 ($555). Motorola has added its own software tweaks including Smartactions which will trigger specific applications and the interactive Circles widget will allow quick access to other services.
