Motorola Mobility announced the upcoming availability of the first smartphone to feature an Intel Atom processor, the RAZR I, back in September.In the meantime, the smartphone was introduced in Europe, South America, and today, the RAZR i has been officially launched in China.
However, the Chinese version of the RAZR i looks a bit different in comparison with the international model. Moreover, it comes with slightly different specs, though the most important features have been kept.
Dubbed Motorola RAZR i MT788, the smartphone has been confirmed for mid-December at China Mobile, though details on the handset’s pricing options have yet to be unveiled.
Android enthusiasts in China will be happy to know the RAZR i MT788 is equipped with the same 2 GHz single-core Atom Intel Z2480 processor, along with a PowerVR SGX540 graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.
However, China Mobile’s RAZR i MT788 packs only 4GB of internal memory, whereas the international version comes with 8GB storage though only 5GB are available for users.
Furthermore, the Chinese RAZR i MT788 drains energy from a slightly smaller 1735 mAh Li-Ion battery, while the standard model is powered by a 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery.
On the other hand, the VGA front-facing camera included with the international RAZR i has been bumped in the Chinese version to 1.3-megapixels. Obviously, this is just a minor improvement from the international variant, but it’s worth mentioning.
The rest of the specs are similar for both devices, so expect the Motorola RAZR i MT788 to sport a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED Advanced capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
Motorola RAZR i MT788 also boasts an impressive 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. Stay tuned for more details on the phone’s price and exact release date.
