Motorola unveils RAZR V XT889 phone for China, comes with ICS
Motorola might not be one of the most popular Android device manufacturers in the US (not anymore), but over in China, it’s still fairly successful. We shouldn’t, therefore, be very surprised to see Moto unveiling the China-exclusive Razr V XT889, one of the most fashionable Motorola-designed phones of recent time.
The RAZR V rocks a very sleek design, with rounded edges and a display wrapped in tough Kevlar fiber. And while it doesn’t look like the thinnest or lightest gadget around, the overall look is rather unique and stays with you, which is not something we can say very often about today’s smartphones, unfortunately.
Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich outside of the box, the RAZR V XT889 has another thing going for it, which will most likely draw the attention of Galaxy Nexus fans. Moto’s new handheld does not come with any physical keys under the screen, which adds to the phone’s industrial look and makes it even more attractive.
While we don’t know much about the RAZR V’s tech specs and features (Motorola’s press release only mentions a 4.3-inch screen, an 8 MP camera, 3G connectivity and splash-guard nano-coating), we can assume that this new guy will be at least similarly equipped to the RAZR XT910. You can therefore expect a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 960 x 540 pixels resolution, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory.
Units should start selling in China today, on June 15, from China Telecom carrier. No words on pricing or outside Asia availability yet, but keep in touch and we will be letting you know if we spot this device in the US or Europe anytime soon.
Aside from the RAZR V, Moto has unveiled another more modest handheld, also set to start selling in China today. The MOTOSMART MIX XT553 will sport a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen and feature a 1,735 mAh battery, as well as EVDO and GSM support. No words on the rest of the phone’s tech specs and features for now.
Does any of these two new phones sounds in any way intriguing? Let us know below!
