The smartphone is expected to go on sale in the following weeks
Motorola Mobility Japan has just announced it has teamed up with major carrier SoftBank to bring customers the RAZR M Android smartphone.Unfortunately, the US-based company does not offer any details on RAZR M’s pricing options and availability, so customers will have to check with SoftBank for more info on this one.
While not the most powerful RAZR series handset, Motorola RAZR M is still among the most interesting devices launched by the US-based handset maker.
This is one of first “full-screen smartphones” launched by Motorola and sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
Design-wise, the RAZR M features a compact design and comes with DuPont KEVLAR fiber on the back and a splash-guard coating inside.
The smartphone fully supports SoftBank’s 4G network, so users will be able to take advantage of blazing fast data speeds.
Although Motorola RAZR M will be launched with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich platform out of the box, the handset vendor announced an upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean would be available soon after release.
Hardware-wise, the RARZ M is equipped with a powerful 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Krait processor, which is complemented by 1GB of RAM and an Adreno 225 graphics processing unit.
There’s also an enhanced 8-megapixel photo snapper included on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. The secondary VGA front-facing camera allows users to make video calls.
Even though the smartphone only packs 8GB of internal memory, users will be able to further expand storage up to 40GB via microSD memory card.
Motorola RAZR M will also come with FeliCa for O-Saifu service and several pre-loaded apps, such as Chrome for Android, Google Play, Google Maps, Google+ and YouTube.
