Motorola and Intel announce the Intel powered RAZR i, powered by 2GHz Intel CPU
Motorola and Intel have today announced their newest phone, the Motorola RAZR i. While it certainly feels odd to be writing about an Android phone with a lower-case i in the name, it certainly doesn’t feel awkward to talk about this phone.
Motorola and Intel have announced the Motorola RAZR i, which is basically the same device as the Motorola RAZR M (in all of its bezel-less glory). However, there are a couple major differences. The RAZR i is powered by a 2GHz Intel which is supposedly 40% more efficient than the competition.
This chip allows it to automatically launch into the camera (through a dedicated hardware button on the side) and take up to 10 snaps within a second. Pretty amazing if you ask me.
In the video below you’ll hear that Motorola has apparently said that the combination of the Intel chip and the 2,000mAh battery inside will get you 20 hours of battery life.
Jim Wicks, senior vice president, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola Mobility said:
Together with Intel, we’re redefining what people can expect from a mobile device. A camera that launches in an instant, Web pages that load blazingly fast and a device that’s the perfect balance of screen size and fit in hand … RAZR i delivers just that when you put an Intel-fast processor in a beautifully designed phone and add in extra long battery life.
Erik Reid, general manager, Intel’s Mobile and Communications Group said:
Motorola RAZR i with Intel Inside naturally blends together the value propositions of high performance Intel Architecture and great battery life, Motorola Mobility device innovation and the Android™ platform … Intel’s goal is to provide compelling technology options that translate into great user benefits and experiences. RAZR i is a great proofpoint in the collaboration and we’re thrilled to be working with Motorola to bring this edge-to-edge experience enhanced with Intel Inside to people around the world.
The RAZR i will be available in the U.K., France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico with more to be announced soon.
