Motorola Droid Razr - Thinnest 4G LTE Smartphone in the world

|October 18 2011 |Android Phones, Motorola

Motorola unveiled their ultra-thin 4G Smartphone called Droid Razr today [infact, just couple of hours ago!]. Motorola Droid Razr is the world's thinnest 4G LTE Smartphone. Droid Razr is just 7.1 mm thin and it is very lightweight too. One of the challenges of manufacturing such a thin-profile lightweight device is how to infuse the necessary strength for the device. Motorola found the answer in the form of Kevlar Fibre. The body-frame of Droid Razr is made with Kevlar Fibre and stainless steel core frame. Kevlar Fibre is a result of brand new technology from Dupont. Kevlar is made of liquid crystalline polymer and provides the combination of high strength and light weightedness. The DROID RAZR will be available in early November for $299.99 with a new two-year customer agreement at all Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at: www.verizonwireless.com; as well as at authorized retailers.


Other impressive features of Motorala Droid Razr include:

- 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB of RAM
- 4.3 inch Super-AMOLED display, qHD Resolution
- 8MP Camera with auto-focus and LED flash and capable of 1080p HD video recording
