Motorola unveils Intel-powered Razr i smartphone
Motorola has unveiled its first smartphone created in partnership with Intel.
The Razr i is an Android 4 phone with a 4.3in AMOLED display and a 2GHz Intel Atom processor at its heart. It comes with 8GB, 16GB or 32GB of storage, and has a MicroSD slot to add more.
Teased before the event with the word “Edge”, the new device does indeed have a near edge-to-edge screen with a 960 x 540 resolution. Motorola pointed out its size advantage over the 4in iPhone 5, although a pixel density of 256ppi means it won’t be as sharp.
The phone measures 8.3mm thick and has NFC connectivity and a micro-USB port on the side. On the rear is an 8-megapixel camera, which Motorola claims can shoot ten pictures in less than a second, and there’s a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front.
With a 2,000mAh battery, Motorola says the Razr i lasts 20hrs on one charge, although that figure is derived from “both usage and standby time”.
The Motorola Razr i will be available in black from October.
