RAZR MAXX coming to Europe, Middle East in May
The Motorola RAZR MAXX is due to arrive in Europe and the Middle East this May, the electronics company revealed on Tuesday. The phone is thus far offered exclusively by Verizon as the Droid RAZR MAXX. Naturally, Motorola is boasting the handset's long battery life as its biggest selling point, claiming a 17.6-hour talk time from the 3,300mAh battery.
Its core difference is support for GSM voice and HSPA+ 3G instead of the Verizon model's CDMA and LTE.
The handset will come with Smart Actions, which are exclusive to Motorola Mobility and let users set automatic actions based on time, location, battery levers, and other factors. This could include having the phone automatically go to silent when the user is sleeping or in meetings. A MotoCast app will also be preloaded, letting users stream or download content from a home or work computer.
The RAZR MAXX also has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The other headline features include a thickness of just under 9mm, its Kevlar fiber rear place, and Corning Gorilla Glass protecting the 4.3-inch, Super AMOLED touchscreen. The phone is also protected with a splash-proof coating inside and out.
Exactly which European and Middle Eastern countries will get the phone remains to be seen, and prices are likewise not being revealed.
