Motorola and Intel today unveiled the first smartphone to run on a 2.0GHz processor, the Razr i.
The main highlight of the Razr i, which looks like an exact clone of the Razr M announced last week, is its single-core 2GHz Intel Atom processor. Intel claims that the 32nm processor is able to perform better and more efficiently than its dual-core counterparts via hyper-threading. Other specs include:
Another key feature of the Razr i is its "edge-to-edge" display, which Motorola claims to have 40% more screen per square inch than the iPhone 4S, and 15% more than the iPhone 5.
The first Android 4.0 smartphone to be powered by the Intel Medfield processor is the ZTE Grand X IN, which was launched at IFA 2012 a month ago. Earlier at CES 2012, Lenovo took the wraps off the first Intel-powerd smartphone, the K800 but it is only available in China.
The Motorola Razr i will be available in black beginning in October in select European and Latin American markets including the U.K, France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico with more to be announced. A white version will also be coming to select markets. Pricing will vary by country.
