Smartphone maker unveils its latest device

Motorola has announced the Razr i, which the company claims is 40 per cent faster than current competitor handsets, including the iPhone 4S.

The firm, which developed the smartphone in unison with Intel, claims to have eliminated the three main bugbears of modern smartphone technology; sluggish performance, poor battery life and a chunky chassis.

Motorola Razr i: Features

It comes equipped with a Super AMOLED Advanced 4.3-inch screen and can achieve speeds of up to 2.0 GHz thanks to a speedy Intel Atom processor.

This, Andrew Morely, Moto’s UK General Manager, claims makes web browsing and switching between applications a faster and smoother experience.

Motorola has put a great deal of thought into the handset’s lifestyle features, with the camera and display receiving the most attention.

The 8-megapixel snapper is supposedly “faster than most DSLRs,” claiming a one second start-up time, and boasts a multi-shot mode that allows users to take up to 10 snaps in less than a second.

It also runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (although we’re told a Jelly Bean update will be made available soon) and near field communication (NFC) technology, allowing users to make snappy mobile payments while on the go.

Motorola Razr i: Release date

The black Motorola Razr i will be available from the beginning of October, with a white version expected to be released a few months down the line. Pricing is yet to be announced.
