Motorola have lifted the lid on their new Droid Razr handset. Landing in the UK as simply the Motorola Razr, it’s the world’s thinnest smartphone at just 7.1mm thick.
That’s despite packing an impressive 4.3 inch Super AMOLED qHD Gorilla Glass display into a chassis with a “stainless steel core” and “woven Kevlar fibre” on the rear. It’s a toughie by the looks of things, despite being “one of the lightest smartphones available today” too.
Inside, you’ve got a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM running the show, and a class-leading 1800mAh battery that will squeeze out 12.5 hours of talk time and 9 hours of constant video playback.
In terms of photography, an 8MP stills camera sits on the rear, with the phone also able to shoots 1080p video aswell.
Sadly, Motorola have opted for the Gingerbread version of Android rather than the brand-spanking new Ice Cream Sandwich OS, surprising given Google’s recent purchase of Motorola’s mobile hardware division.
Still, Motorola have spruced things up a bit with some UI tweaks and re-skinning nonetheless. There’s a “Smart Actions” tab for quickly accessing features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity settings, and the MotoCast app, which lets users share files across their PCs and mobile devices using a desktop client.
According to retailer Clove, the handset will cost £454.80, and will launch on November 1st.
