China Unicom and Motorola Mobility have just announced the upcoming availability of the RAZR V XT885 Android phone. The smartphone will soon go on sale for a suggested retail price of 3,298 yuan (515 USD or 420 EUR) off-contract.
The RAZR V has already been confirmed at China Telecom and China Mobile
, which makes China Unicom the last major carrier in the Mainland to launch the smartphone.
Obviously, the device will be delivered with full support for the carrier’s 3G network. Other than that, there’s nothing really new in comparison with the other two RAZR V carrier-bounded models.
Motorola’s latest addition to the RAZR line, the RAZR V will be launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system onboard, so users will be able to experience all the advantages of Google’s platform without having to wait for an update.
In order to set itself apart from other RAZR V models, China Unicom’s version is dubbed XT885. The smartphone features the same RAZR-like form factor. It’s only 8.35mm thin and weighs 125g (battery included).
Hardware-wise, the RAZR V XT885
packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU and 1GB of RAM.
Unfortunately, the smartphone comes with only 4GB of internal memory, but users will be able to further expand storage space up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
There’s also a pretty decent 4.3-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel rear camera with full HD (1080p) video recording, and a secondary VGA front-facing camera for video calls.
“With Motorola RAZR V XT885 we’ve created the perfect smartphone for stylish, smart and tech-savvy consumers who want great looks, great performance and great value. We are committed to creating devices that are beautiful and powerful, but also affordable. The new Motorola RAZR V XT885 embodies that commitment perfectly, and brings all the advantages of the RAZR V family to China Unicom’s 3G network users in China
,” said Frank Meng, senior vice president and president of Greater China, Motorola Mobility.
