Motorola relaunches the RAZR – Android, 4.3-inch display, coming in Nov on Optus

By on

The RAZR is reborn. One of its most successful smartphones ever, Motorola is bringing the name back but with some major hardware upgrades and running Andiron 2.3.5 Gingerbread while retaining its ever slim and lightweight design.

The new phone features a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display protected with Gorilla Glass and a 1.2GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera that can record in 1080p, and a 1.3-megapixel camera at the front.  All of this is wrapped in a body that is only 7.1mm thin and is made out of KEVLAR fibre.

Screenshots also indicate changes on MotoBLUR, so we really can’t wait to get our hands to review it. The phone also features a MotoCast app, allowing you to stream or download content from your PC to your device without hooking it up to a computer; and “Smart Actions” that lets you automate everyday tasks and enable better battery life.

The phone also comes with standard Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The RAZR will also feature 4G, however that appears to be a Verizon exclusive. Everyone else, including us in Australia, will be running on standard 3G.

The RAZR comes to Australia in November on Optus as an exclusive. The phone will be available for $0 upfront on its $59 Cap plan, and the added Work, Play and Drive Kit – which lets you have GPS directions, edit documents and browse the web with a full Firefox browser – will be on its $79 Cap plan with $0 upfront.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
