Motorola has unveiled the RAZR i, its first smartphone to be powered by an Intel Atom processor, boasting high speeds and a long-lasting battery life.

 
The Android 4.0 phone comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display made with Corning Gorilla Glass surrounded by a diamond cut aircraft-grade aluminium frame. There is additional survivability with a “splash guard,” which means rain or spilled coffee won't damage the phone, even the electrical boards inside.
 
The Atom processor allows speeds of 2 GHz, which allows faster switching between apps. It also offers a battery that lasts 40 percent longer than the iPhone 4S, with SmartActions to program the device to use certain power saving and other rules at different times, such as at meetings or at home.

Another major feature is an instant-launch 8 megapixel camera accessed from a dedicated camera key. A multi-shot mode lets users capture 10 photos in under one second, while an illuminated sensor and High Dynamic Range will improve photo lighting.
 
“Together with Intel, we’re redefining what people can expect from a mobile device,” said Jim Wicks, SVP of Consumer Experience Design at Google-owned Motorola. “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.”
 
The RAZR i will launch in October in select countries in Europe and Latin America, with prices varying from region to region.
