The Chinese market has become enticing for the smartphone developers. Almost every developer is targeting the market by introducing new handsets equipped with some of the finest features. And after the reports that the Chinese market is completely dominated by the Android platform, it is not surprising that Motorola is all set to launch its latest handset the RAZR I in china as well. The phone was talked about at its launch in September being the first android phone powered by an Intel chipset.
The Chinese version is called the RAZR i MT788 and is quite similar to the US version. It is powered by a 2 GHz Intel Atom Z2480 processor and comes with the android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich on board. It has 4.3 inch AMOLED screen that is quoted with Gorilla Glass and has a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels. It has an eight megapixel rear camera that can take some great shots.
However, there quite a few differences as well. The design of the MT788 is based on the same lines as the XT788 which is a dual SIM phone instead of using the same design of the RAZR i. next, if you use your phones for long on a single recharge then you would be a little disappointed since the phone comes with a 1,735mAh battery compared to the 2,000mAh in the US version. One will have to compromise a little on the storage as well. Where the original phone comes with a 16 GB internal memory, the Chinese version has only 4 GB but it has a micro SD slot that gives you an option to expand it to 32 GB. There is an upgrade in the front camera that has been increased to 1.3 megapixels from the regular 0.3 megapixel.
The phone has only been announced as of now. There is no official announcement regarding the price of the phones. If you are also interested in buying the phone, then you can find one in the markets of China somewhere around the second or third week of December. With the release of this phone, it would be interesting to know that will one of the largest phone manufacturer would be able to help Intel make a place for itself in the mobile market as well after ruling the computer market for years. However, one can only wait and watch.
