Motorola Mobility has unveiled its first Android smartphone powered by an Intel processor this morning. It’s called the RAZR i, and it boasts a 4.3-inch “edge-to-edge” Super AMOLED Advance display, which Motorola promises is 40% larger than that of the iPhone 4S, and 15% larger than that of the iPhone 5.
Like other Motorola handsets, the RAZR i sports a Kevlar body that’s incredibly tough and lightweight. Inside it, there’s a 2GHz Intel Atom processor that employs a 32 nanometer manufacturing process that makes for a super speedy smartphone. Intel says it has spent years developing Android x86 for the chip, which delivers HyperThreading technology for faster Java and HTML performance.
The RAZR i also features a 2,000 mAh battery that promises up to 20 hours of mixed use. The RAZR i’s 8-megapixel camera starts up in less than a second, and has a great burst mode that is capable of taking 10 shots in under a second. Motorola claims that the camera is actually faster than a regular DSLR. That’s pretty impressive if you ask me.
You can also look forward to NFC, Android Beam, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed. A Jelly Bean upgrade is also on its way, though it’s unclear when it will actually arrive. Seeing as though Motorola is now owned by Google, however, we’re guessing it won’t take too long.
The RAZR i will make its debut in the United Kingdom in early October, available from Orange, T-Mobile, Phones4U, Virgin Media, and Tesco.
