Both the RAZR and RAZR Maxx sport a 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 TI OMAP 4430 chipset, which is an ARM chipset. The RAZR i sports a whopping 2GHz processor made by Intel, which means that the phone packs some pretty heavy firepower.
Of course, the RAZR i has to go through a number of benchmark tests for us to know how fast its processor really is. According to Intel, the hyperthreading technology in its processor makes it faster compared to the competition. We can’t wait to get our hands on the new handset to see if it really packs a mean punch.
The RAZR i looks similar to the other versions of the RAZR. It too sports a 4.3-inch display and the RAZR’s kevlar coat. This means that it will be protected against accidental scratches and the usual bumps.
According to Motorola, the new handset sports an edge-to-edge screen that has “virtually no border”. However, judging from the picture seen above, it still has a bezel. It has a slim bezel, but still a bezel.
Although Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) is here, the RAZR i still runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which is strange for a new device. Furthermore, since Google now owns Motorola, we’d expect the new phone to run the latest version of Android. Motorola does, however, say that the phone can be upgraded to Jelly Bean, but this doesn’t mean that it will be updated as soon as the phone is released.
