Today, mobile phone maker Motorola Mobility went official with its first smartphone that packs an Intel processor inside, the Motorola RAZR i.
The new device will come to the market with a 2GHz Atom processor built using the 32nm process technology, as well as with a large 4.3-inch Super AMOLED, edge-to-edge display.
Running under Google’s Android
operating system, the new device will also pack an unlocked bootloader when released, Motorola announced.
Just as with many of its latest handsets, Motorola also focused on making the new device durable, and packed it with water-protective coating and Dupont Kevlar Fibre.
Additionally, the handset features a 2,000mAh battery, said to be 40 percent bigger than what the Apple iPhone has to offer.
Being one of the first smartphones in the world to sport an Intel processor, Motorola RAZR i is also said to be a fast device.
According to Motorola
, browsing, camera, video playback should run smoother that on other Android devices, the same as most applications.
The phone’s 8-megapixel photo snapper should start in less than a second and comes with a burst mode that can take up to 10 shots in under a second.
Moreover, Intel explained that the device comes with hyper-threading technology packed inside, which was meant to make it both faster and more power efficient.
NFC capabilities will also be included inside this device, along with the usual set of connectivity options that can be found in today’s high-end smartphones.
Motorola hasn’t provided specific info on the Android flavor running on this device, yet it is possible for it to arrive with Jelly Bean on board, since Intel has already managed to fully port the platform
to its processor.
Motorola RAZR i is expected to arrive on shelves at the beginning of October in the UK, and will also get launched in France, Germany and Brazil.
Unfortunately, Motorola kept mum on mobile phone’s availability on other areas around the globe, though it might offer additional details on the matter as soon as the device actually reaches shelves.
