The excitement over the first Intel-powered phone from Motorola might have died down a bit after the first benchmarks appeared, but the Razr i still looks like a more than decent mid-ranger. The 2 GHz…
While the Motorola RAZR i has yet to show itself in the North American market, it has managed to make the rounds to many countries in Europe and even Latin America. Now it seems that the RAZR i is even coming to China with a slightly redesigned look and a new name.
The China-bound version of the Motorola Intel device is going by the name MT788 and has a plain, boring backing in lieu of the Kevlar fiber variant that has been released everywhere else. Thankfully, there isn't much else different. The Chinese model does have added support for Chinese Mobile's TD-SCDMA connectivity, though. Like the standard RAZR i, the MT788 has a 4.3-inch qHD display, 2GHz Atom processor and 1GB of RAM. The new smartphone also has the same 8MP rear cam and features Android 4.0 ICS.
While we've yet to get all the details, it presumably also has support for NFC and the same decent-sized 2000mAh battery. Storage sizes should also stay the same, meaning 8, 16 and 32GB variants. Currently there is no word on when we can actually expect to see the Motorola MT788 hit the Chinese market, or how much it will cost.
Are you interested in running an Intel-based Android device or would you rather stick with an ARM-based smartphone?
