Motorola’s First Intel Processor-Powered Smartphone Has Appeared
We knew that Motorola were one of the partners working with Intel to bring Medfield-powered handsets to the mass market, and now we’ve seen the first shots of their efforts.
Pictures of the unnamed handset have appeared on the web via Pocketnow, where it’s plain to see that Motorola have done a little bit to differentiate themselves from the black slap that’s the Lenovo K800; the first Intel-powered phone revealed at CES. The phone looks similar to the Motorola RAZR or Droid 4, but runs Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich and comes in a lighter shade than Motorola is known for in the modern age – it looks more like the V220 I used back in the day.
According to the associated rumours, the phone will come with an instant-on camera capable of shooting 15 frames per second – perfect for slow-motion videos. Judging by what we’ve seen on the earlier Lenovo K800, we’d expect the handset to be powered by a single-core Intel Medfield processor running at 1.6 GHz coupled with 720p HD display of approximately 4.5-inches.
Hopefully Motorola will be showing off the phone at the Mobile World Congress, which as I keep reminding myself begins on the 27th of February, the day before my birthday. Hurrah.
