Motorola has just officially announced the Motorola RAZR, the world's thinnest smartphone - at 7.1mm thin which is thinner than the current world record holder - the Galaxy S II which is 8.49mm thin! That's just insane right? Wait till you see the specs, it's just as impressive:
- 7.1 mm thin – “impossibly thin”
- 127 grams
- Gorilla Glass
- Splash Guard
- 1.2GHZ processor
- 1GB RAM
- 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced qHD display
- 8MP camera with 1080p video
- 12.5 hours talk time/8.9 hours video playback
- 1780 mAh battery
- Bluetooth 4.0
- Running Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread
The specs are pretty much neck and neck with the Galaxy S II which will prove to be a good contender for Samsung. Apart from the hardware, there's also a new Smart Actions software that does certain actions such as turning off Bluetooth and GPS while you're at home to save battery life. Also, if you're at 20% battery level, it'll dim the display automatically and possibly slow down the processor - much like how you could setup the free Android app SetCPU to do (requires root).
Apart from that, there's also MotoCast which is another place for you to store your data into the cloud like Box.net and such. Looks like more manufacturers are coming up with their own cloud storage solutions for their phones, is that a good or bad thing? It all depends on how they manage it.
The Motorola RAZR will be available for $299 on contract with Verizon (obviously) and pre-orders begin on October 27th. No word on when or if it'll launch worldwide at the moment.
