Motorola Mobility has put its faith in long-lasting batteries and large displays as it launched its latest wave of handsets.
The manufacturer was the second company to reveal new smartphones yesterday (5 September) after Nokia announced its new Lumia devices in New York. Motorola unveiled three new handsets in total but only the Razr HD was confirmed for a European release. However, no exact launch date was given for the high-end phone.
The Razr M has a 4.3-inch edge to edge display, with virtually no bezel. Motorola said the device has a screen and battery life that is 40% larger that the iPhone 4S. The phone comes with swipe-by-swipe tutorials and a Smart Actions battery saving feature that increases the amount of time you can use the phone. However, so far only the US and Asia Pacific markets have been confirmed for a release. The device runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich but will be upgradeable to Jelly Bean. It runs on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
The new Razr HD will be launched into Europe 'soon'. The device has a 4.7-inch screen and a battery that allows up to 10 hours of video or six hours of web surfing. The handset runs Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor but will be upgradeable to the Jelly Bean version of the operating system.
The Razr Maxx HD is being marketed as the longest-lasting LTE smartphone, with a 32 hour battery life. It will launch in the US before Christmas. It has a 4.7-inch screen, and runs Ice Cream Sandwich on a 1.5GHz dual-core processor.
