We heard rumours earlier this month that Motorola would be bringing back its Razer brand and now the rumours have proved correct. Motorola have announced the Motorola Razer Droid which is a super-thin Android smartphone.
The Razer Droid follows in the footsteps of the original Razer, which launched back in 2003, by making the mobile as slim as possible. However, it doesn't feature the same flip mechanism but Motorola will be hoping it sells as well as the original mobile.
The Motorola Razer Droid is just 7.1 mm thick at its thinnest point and is made from Kevlar fiber so it remains strong. This makes it the world's thinnest LTE smartphone, but the mention of LTE makes us wonder whether the Razer Droid will launch in the UK or if it'll be a US exclusive.
The specification of the Razer Droid includes a 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard memory. It also comes with a 16GB microSD card bringing the combined memory up to 32GB.
A 4.3 inch Super AMOLED touch-screen is also present which runs at qHD resolution and features Gorilla Glass making it more scratch-resistant. A rear facing 8 mega-pixel doubles to record 1080p HD video, while a front-facing HD camera can be used for video calling.
The Motorola Razer Droid comes pre-loaded with Android 2.3.5 the latest version of the operating system.
In the US the Motorola Razer Droid will be available to buy early in November , but we still need confirmation that the mobile will come to the UK.
