Motorola have unveiled the RAZR successor, sporting Android, 4G LTE, a 1.2GHz dual-core chip and is constructed from Kevar, is a nice piece of kit. The new RAZR is only 7.1mm thick, making it the thinnest of its kind.


It also sports 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on-board storage, 12.5 hours of talk time, a 1800 mAh battery, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display with strengthened Gorilla Glass, a steel core and Kevlar fiber, which makes it both strong and lightweight.


On top of all of this, the entire phone, inside and out (including the electronics) have been coated in a water-resistant material, which makes the phone virtually invincible against spills and the elements. RAZR will also also dock with Moto's webtop, and the MOTOACTV, a smartwatch that can sync with the Droid RAZR for on-the-fly updates and functionality.


AU note: The Motorola Droid RAZR will be called just Motorola RAZR locally, it will be (at first) exclusive to Optus and definitely won't include 4G as Optus haven't rolled out 4G and don't plan to until next year. You can grab the RAZR for $0 on the $59 Optus Cap plan and pre-orders are available from October 24.
