Motorola Mobility, in partnership with Intel Corporation, has introduced the smartphone with an edge-to-edge display, Motorola Razr i. According to an official statement, Razr i is the first smartphone that can achieve speeds of 2GHz, with an Intel Atom processor. Jump from a game to a text and over to a playlist, then off to browse the Web – all without stopping and on a long-lasting battery, which the company claims is 40 percent more powerful than the competition.
Motorola Razr i - the second Intel-powered smartphone
A diamond-cut aircraft-grade aluminium frame surrounds the display, which is made of Corning Gorilla Glass, to deflect both scratches and scrapes. The back of the Razr i is made up of DuPont Kevlar. Razr i is protected with a splash-guard coating — even on the electrical boards inside.
The Motorola Razr i runs on Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), upgradeable to Jelly Bean. The dedicated camera key can be used to get the desired shot. When there’s action involved, multi-shot mode lets you snap 10 pictures in less than a second. And there's the illuminated sensor located on the back and High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities.
Here's a quick look at the specifications of the Motorola RAZR i:
- 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels
- 3G, EDGE/GPRS with Wi-Fi
- GPS with A-GPS support
- Bluetooth with A2DP and USB 2.0 (Micro)
- 8MP camera with LED flash, VGA camera
- 8GB internal + microSD card support for up to 32GB more memory
The handset comes pre-loaded with Google Play, Google Maps with free turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance, and Voice Actions to compose a text, get directions, make a call, play a song or browse the Internet. Razr i also features Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, so you can send contacts, links, maps, etc. directly to compatible phones with Android Beam.
Motorola and Intel announce new phone
“Together with Intel, we’re redefining what people can expect from a mobile device. A camera that launches in an instant, Web pages that load blazingly fast and a device that’s the perfect balance of screen size and fit in hand,” said Jim Wicks, Senior Vice President, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola Mobility. “RAZR i delivers just that when you put an Intel-fast processor in a beautifully designed phone and add in extra long battery life.”
“Motorola RAZR i with Intel Inside naturally blends together the value propositions of high performance Intel Architecture and great battery life, Motorola Mobility device innovation and the Android platform,” said Erik Reid, General Manager, Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group. “Intel’s goal is to provide compelling technology options that translate into great user benefits and experiences. RAZR i is a great proofpoint in the collaboration and we’re thrilled to be working with Motorola to bring this edge-to-edge experience enhanced with Intel Inside to people around the world.”
Razr i has a long battery life, as per the official statement. When you set up the Smartactions battery savings rule, the phone will automatically adjust to squeeze more out of each charge. Whether you want to maximise your last ounce of power, or prevent your phone from ringing during a meeting, Smartactions automatically triggers specific actions. Motorola’s exclusive Guide Me app comes preloaded with interactive, swipe-by-swipe tutorials for numerous features; no instruction manual is required. Also unique to Motorola, the interactive Circles Widget allows quick access to notifications, weather, time, and more.
Motorola Razr i will be available in black beginning in October in select European and Latin American markets including the UK, France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. A white version will also be coming to select markets. Pricing and availability will vary by country.
