Motorola unveils Razr i: First smartphone to hit 2GHz speeds
LONDON, Sept 18 — At an event in London today, Motorola unveiled the Intel powered Razr i smartphone, the first device capable of 2GHz speeds.
The phone, the first Motorola device to be Intel-powered, has a 4.3 inch edge-to-edge touchscreen display, an ARM-based Snapdragon processor, runs Andrioid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, upgradable to 4.1 Jelly Bean, and features a new Intel Atom Chip which runs at speeds of 2GHz — the first smartphone to be capable of such speeds.
The Intel chip also includes a new image signal processor that enables users to take up to 10 pictures in one second and means that the device can be ready to take a picture in less than a second.
The device will launch in European and Latin American markets, including the UK, France, Germany, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico with “more markets to be announced,” and according to Motorola pricing will vary between countries. However, Geeky Gadgets are claiming sources have quoted £342 (RM1,710) and £334.98 for the phone, £342 is also being quoted by Android Authority and engadget.
Earlier this month Apple caused a buzz with the release of its latest iPhone, the iPhone 5, which attracted over two million pre-orders in 24 hours. — AFP/Relaxnews
