Motorola Mobility is bringing the Motorola Razr Maxx and Razr V to India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
Besides donning the same iconic Razr design, the two smartphones are built with Kevlar fibre for extra durability. On top of that, they have a splash-guard coating which keeps even the electrical boards inside safe. Both smartphones also feature the Motorola's proprietary Smart Actions, a tool that lets you automate your phone's settings throughout the day.
The Motorola Razr Maxx will launch with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and will receive an over-the-air upgrade to the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform. Equipped with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, this smartphone measures about 8.99mm thin, and allows you about 17.6 hours of talk time. It also includes an 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture capability, as well as a front-facing HD video camera. Because it is loaded with the "Business Ready", your email, contacts, and calendar gets sheltered with government-grade encryption.
Driven by a 1.2GHz processor, the Motorola Razr V incorporates the ColorBoost display technology, portraying vibrant colors for clarity and sharpness. At 8.35mm thin, the device runs on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
The Motorola Razr Maxx will start shipping in end June.

Singapore – Motorola Mobility is bringing the longest-lasting smartphone on the market today, Motorola RAZR MAXX, and the sexy yet affordable Motorola RAZR V to India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Motorola RAZR MAXX will be available with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), and will receive an over-the-air upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) soon after. Motorola RAZR V will be available with Android 4.0 during the third quarter of the year. Specific availability information for both devices will be announced closer to the retail launch dates.
Both smartphones sport the iconic RAZR design, with the same sculpted face, diamond-cut aluminium accents Not only are they gorgeous, they’re also made to last, with KEVLAR fibre for strength and scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass. Caught in the rain? Spill your coffee? Fear not. Motorola RAZR MAXX and Motorola RAZR V have a splash-guard coating that keeps everything safe – including the electrical boards inside.
Motorola RAZR MAXX – the longest lasting smartphone on the block
With the longest battery life of any smartphone today, this device has enough juice for 17.6 hours of talk-time – on a single charge. And because it’s in the Motorola RAZR family, it has the same incredibly thin, fast and light pedigree as the groundbreaking original Motorola RAZR smartphone. It has a vibrant 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display that features a wider range of colours than most LCD HDTVs. Plus at just 8.99 mm, Motorola RAZR MAXX is still impossibly thin.
For aspiring filmmakers, forget about buying expensive, clunky equipment to shoot your first masterpiece. Instead, take advantage of Motorola RAZR MAXX’s 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p video capture for crisp, clear, cinematic-quality images. Or, simply use it to chat with a friend using the front-facing HD video camera.
The Motorola RAZR MAXX is also “Business Ready,” featuring government-grade encryption that protects your email, contacts and calendar. Even the strictest IT manager will be impressed.
Motorola RAZR V – iconic styling and mind-blowing thinness for your budget
At an amazing 8.35mm thin, the Motorola RAZR V makes the iconic RAZR family styling and quality available to everyone. This big-screen beauty is surprisingly compact and light, and feels great even in smaller hands. Thanks to ColorBoost display technology, the Motorola RAZR V boasts extremely vibrant colours for better clarity and sharper images. With Charcoal, Glacier White and Rebel Pink options, subject to market availability, you can choose the colour that reflects your own personality and style. And while the Motorola RAZR V comes at a surprisingly affordable price, it gives away nothing in performance, thanks to its dual-core 1.2GHz processor.
Unique to Motorola Mobility smartphones, including Motorola RAZR MAXX and Motorola RAZR V is Smart Actions – a tool that lets you automate your phone’s settings throughout the day. For example, you can set your phone to automatically turn off its ringer when you get home from work, set it to turn off emails while you sleep, or dim the screen when battery life gets below 30 percent. Essentially, Smart Actions manages all of the little things that add up to make all the difference in the world – all while extending your phone’s already long battery life.
Price and Availability
Motorola RAZR MAXX will start shipping in end-June with the exact availability and prices in each market to be announced closer to the retail launch. Motorola RAZR V will be made available in Q3 of 2012.
