The new smartphone is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is expected to receive an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at an unspecified moment in the future.
Not only does it feature a 2GHz processor inside, but it also comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced screen (960×540 pixels) that spans from edge to edge, thus making the phone seem smaller.
According to Motorola, the new phone is capable of offering true multitasking capabilities to its users, while also providing them with a great experience when viewing HD content.
Moreover, the smartphone was unveiled with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, capable of snapping up to 10 pictures in a second when in burst mode, and also designed to record HD videos.
“And with the illuminated sensor located on the back and High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities, you’ll get a great shot, even in challenging lighting conditions,” Motorola notes.
The phone was also built for durability, with Corning Gorilla Glass protecting the screen and DuPont KEVLAR covering its body. Not to mention that there is a splash-guard coating protecting it from splashes.
Motorola also promises prolonged battery life from the new device, a feature enhanced through the inclusion of the SMARTACTIONS application to set specific rules related to phone usage.
Other software also comes pre-loaded on the new mobile phone, including Motorola’s Guide Me app, Circles Widget, Google Maps for Android, and access to thousands of other applications via the Google Play Store.
“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’s new device should hit the market in the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico next month, while also being set to arrive in other countries shortly after. A white flavor of the device will be launched in select markets.
