Motorola’s Droid Razr i Packs Intel Inside
Motorola announced the Droid Razr i at an event in London Tuesday. Rocking a similar look to the Razr M released this week in the United States, the Razr i is designed for select European and Latin American markets including the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico.
The most interesting feature of the phone is not what it looks like, but what’s inside. The Razr i boasts an Intel 2GHz CPU, one of the first phones created from a collaboration between Intel and Motorola.
Touted as the “the full-screen phone,” the handset has a 4.3-inch edge-to-edge display much like the Razr M, which Motorola says “gives you more screen with less phone.”
Other specs include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, and an 8-megapixel camera, likely the same underperforming lens found in the Razr i’s U.S. counterpart, the Razr M. The phone will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but will ultimately be upgradable the newest version of Android, Jelly Bean.
“Motorola RAZR i with Intel Inside naturally blends together the value propositions of high performance Intel Architecture and great battery life,” said Erik Reid, general manager of Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group, in a press release announcing the handset.
“Intel’s goal is to provide compelling technology options that translate into great user benefits and experiences. RAZR i is a great proof point in the collaboration, and we’re thrilled to be working with Motorola to bring this edge-to-edge experience enhanced with Intel Inside to people around the world.”
Motorola RAZR i will be available in black beginning in October in select European and Latin American markets. Pricing will vary by country, and has yet to be announced.
