Motorola has just announced the Droid RAZR, a phone that the company calls “impossibly thin“. At 7.1mm thin, at its thinnest point, Motorola calls it the world’s thinnest phone. It features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM. Its display is a 4.3” Super-AMOLED with Gorilla glass that can be used to watch HD movies from Netflix. Motorola says that it is the first device that can download HD movies from Netflix.

Key features:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 4.3” Super AMOLED display with Gorilla glass
  • Android Gingerbread 2.3.5
  • Measuring 7.1mm at its thinnest point
  • Stainless steel and kevlar design
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • Able to watch HD Netflix movies
  • Government-graded encryption of emails, contacts and calendars
  • Compatible with Motorola’s Lapdock 500 Pro/Lapdock 100

The internal design is made of stainless steel and Kevlar, which ensures rigidity but at the same time, it weighs only 127g, which is more than the Galaxy S2, but less than the iPhone 4.

But hardware is only one side of the story says Motorola. On the software side, Motorola says that it has optimized the software that will improve battery life, and of course, Webtop from Motorola transform this thin smartphone into a small Linux computer.

Motocast is a cloud service for Motorola. With Motocast, users can stream music, download files/documents, which is something that business users will appreciate according to Motorola.

Finally, this is the thinnest 4G LTE phone in the world right now. It is as simple as that. At the moment, the 4G LTE network from Verizon is the fastest 4G network in America, and earlier devices suffered from being bulkier and had short battery life. The Droid RAZR has already changed the physical design difference. Now, we’re excited to see how good the battery life is going to be!
