Motorola says its new RAZRi is its “biggest launch since the original RAZR” (no sniggering in the back row, please). Certainly, it’s the first phone to come with a 2GHz Intel processor. Sounds impressive, non?
Intel says it’s the first phone not only with a 1GHz Intel processor, but any 2GHz processor. For the record, the San Diego phone Intel made had just a 1.6GHz Atom X2460 chipset.
Further specs reveal that the RAZRi will run Android 4.0.4 — no Jelly Bean here yet — with 1GB RAM, while boasting an impressive 4.3-inch display, all contained within a neat 126g package.
With a Gorilla Glass display that goes “edge to edge”, the RAZRi also has a waterproof coating, like the one we first saw on Motorola’s Xoom tablet last year. Meanwhile, a 2000mAh battery is the one big drawcard for me and will likely be for you too. Well, at least more so than the NFC that has also been added.
The 8MP camera can shoot 10 photos in less than a second, with the startup time touted at under one second — so it should be pretty quick on the draw. On the software side, Motorola has added a “circles widget” on the home screen, which shows you such vitals as battery life.
The RAZRi will initially launch in Europe and Latin America — it’s not clear if or when it will launch elsewhere. [Gizmodo UK]
