Motorola has unveiled the latest addition to their smartphone line-up, the Motorola RAZR i, the first smartphone from Motorola to be powered by an Intel processor.

The device pretty much mirrors the recently announced RAZR M, the main difference being the Intel processor. The processor is a single core 2GHz processor, which Intel claim is more efficient than many dual core powered devices.

The device sports a large, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Advanced display, with qHD resolution. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and the back of the device is made by Kevlar. The screen fits 'edge-to-edge', with a minimal bezel around the side of the device, which gives the handset 15% more screen per square inch than the iPhone 5. The device also has a splash resistant coating, so should be able to deal with the every day knocks and bumps.

Weighing in at 126g, the RAZR i runs on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, with an update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean planned for the future. Powering the handset is a 2000 mAh Li Ion battery, which Motorola claim gives up to 40% better battery performance.

On board is an 8.0 Megapixel camera, which launches instantly and can capture 10 images in less than one second, all thanks to the power supplied by the Intel processor. The camera supports Touch Focus, Geo-tagging, Face Detection, Image Stabilisation and HDR, and is capable of recording 1080p HD video at 30 frames per second. The handset includes a 0.3 Megapixel front facing camera for video calling.

The Motorola RAZR i is expected to be available from the beginning of October, and is already confirmed for both Orange and T-Mobile.
