Motorola Mobility has confirmed that the Motorola Droid RAZR M, announced earlier today by Motorola and Verizon, will be coming to the UK with a slight name change and a new processor. The UK variant will drop the Droid branding and be simply called the RAZR M. The Qualcomm S4 processor will also be replaced with an Intel processor. The form factor, including the edge-to-edge display will stay the same. And, the rest of the hardware specs seem to be unchanged (besides the basebands of course).
This will be the first Motorola-Intel phone to hit the market. Doing a bit of digging, this makes sense. Motorola announced their partnership with Intel way back at CES 2012. During their announcement, they fully expected products to ship later this year. Will the RAZR M sport the same Medfield processor that’s in the Lenovo K800 or will it be something new and different?
To further confirm what Pocket Lint learned, the “edge-to-edge” design on the RAZR M fits perfectly with the flyer below. Notice how the text goes from edge-to-edge, without margin. The flyer is also sporting the Intel logo.
If you’re in the UK, check back in about two weeks for the official product announcement on September 18th. Oh, one more thing. Rumor has it that the UK variant will come in White!
