Motorola Mobility revealed the RAZR i smartphone for Europe and Latin America on Tuesday, rolling out the first handset of a multi-device agreement with Intel.
The smartphone features a Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch display, which spans from edge-to-edge with virtually no border. RAZR i is the first smartphone that can achieve speeds of 2.0 GHz thanks to an Intel Atom processor (Medfield.) The smartphone's battery is 40 percent more powerful than iPhone 4S', Motorola claims.
The phone's 8-megapixel camera can load in less than a second and supports multi-shot mode for snapping 10 pictures in less than a second. An illuminated sensor located on the back along with High Dynamic Range (HDR) capabilities ensure a great shot even in challenging lighting conditions.
Powered by Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich (upgradeable to Jelly Bean), RAZR i puts the Google universe in your hand. Google Play gives you access to apps and games, books and movies. Google Maps for Android offers free turn-by-turn directions and voice guidance. And when your hands are full, use Voice Actions for Android on RAZR i to compose a text, get directions, make a call, play a song...or simply Google something. RAZR i also features near field communication (NFC) technology so you can send contacts, links, maps and more directly to compatible phones with Android Beam.
An aluminum frame surrounds the phone's display, which is made of Corning Gorilla Glass, to deflect both scratches and scrapes. On the back, RAZR i is made DuPont KEVLAR strong. RAZR i is also protected with a splash-guard coating - even on the electrical boards inside.
By setting up the SMARTACTIONS battery savings rule the phone will automatically adjust to squeeze more out of each battery charge. Whether you want to maximize your last ounce of power, or prevent your phone from ringing during a meeting, SMARTACTIONS will automatically trigger specific actions. Motorola's exclusive Guide Me app comes preloaded with interactive, swipe-by-swipe tutorials for many features - no instruction manual required. Also unique to Motorola, the interactive Circles Widget allows quick access to notifications, weather, time and more.
Motorola RAZR i will be available in black beginning in October in select European and Latin American markets including the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. A white version will also be coming to select markets.
