Motorola unleashes Intel-powered RAZR i on Euroland

Written by Peter Scott



2GHz Medfield meets RAZR M

Rumours of an Intel-based Motorola handset have been swirling around for weeks and now the phone is finally official.

The Motorola RAZR i is basically a RAZR M with a 2GHz Intel chip inside. The 2GHz Medfield processor takes the place of Qualcomm’s S4 in this Euro phone and it is basically the first big Intel phone launch in Europe.

The rest of the spec remains unchanged, a 4.3-inch edge-to-edge screen in a tiny Kevlar coated package, with a 2000mAh battery and 8-megapixel camera.

Of course, the big news here is the processor, so let’s stick to that. Engadget reports that the chip is optimized for browsing, with a special emphasis on Java. Gaming should also benefit from the new chip, but we still have to see how the Medfield compares to Krait in real life tests.

It’s not a Nexus, but the RAZR i comes with an unlocked bootloader, NFC and Android Beam support, but it is still unclear whether the phone will launch with Android 4.0 or 4.1. The RAZR M was demoed with Jelly Bean, but launched with ICS. In any case, both phones will probably end up running Jelly Bean in a couple of months one way or the other.
