The official word is in: the new Motorola Droid Razr (otherwise just known as Razr outside of the US) has been announced.

True to what we've heard earlier on, the new Android smartphone from Motorola will be accompanied by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM and a 4.3-inch display. The Razr's Super AMOLED display is protected by the now common Gorilla Glass screen, and a Kevlar fiber body that's supposedly much tougher and protects the device from everyday spills thanks to its water repellant nanocoating.

What really grabbed everyone's attention, was the Razr's dimensions. In particular, the side profile measures in at 7.1mm, superseding Samsung's Galaxy S II (which is 8.5mm thin) as the thinnest Android smartphone in the market.

Much like how the Motorola Atrix was positioned as the brains behind its lapdock accessory, the Razr is also a webtop phone, which works with the Lapdock 100 accessory.

In summary, the key features of the upcoming Motorola Razr are:

  • Google Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread
  • Dual-core 1.2GHz processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass
  • Kevlar fiber body, 7.1mm thin profile
  • 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording
  • 16GB internal storage with microSD expanadability
  • 1780mAh battery

According to Motorola Singapore's Facebook page, the Razr will be available from 11th November 2011. Meanwhile, we've reached out to Motorola Singapore for the pricing details.

If you need a rough estimate on the price point of the Razr, do note that the device is announced in conjunction with a Verizon Wireless exclusive in the United States, with pre-orders for the Droid Razr (as it is known in the States) starting from 27th October, at US$299.99 with a two-year contract.
