The Motorola RAZR HD has been out Stateside since 2012 but the phone is finally coming here. Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, it has a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, a long-lasting battery and 4G chip for accessing ultra-fast broadband.
Motorola smartphones are known for their battery prowess and the RAZR HD is no exception, inside there’s a large 2530 mAh battery which provides 20 hours of music, six hours of HD YouTube HD shows, six hours of 4G surfing and 16 hours talk time.
Motorola’s retained the DuPont KEVLAR fiber coating we saw in the Motorola RAZR i and there’s a splash-guard to protect from spills and leakages.
Andrew Morley, VP & General Manager UK & Ireland, Motorola Mobility states: “As our lives get busier, we need a handset that can keep up with the pace and with that in mind, the Motorola RAZR HD was born, a smartphone that’s always ready to go, whenever you need it.”
The Motorola RAZR HD is available now from resellers, but we’ll update the piece with network availability when we get it.
