Motorola RAZR MAXX has just been introduced in the UAE. The smartphone is one of RAZR’s sequels, but with a much better battery. The handset can be purchased via major retailers in the UAE for a suggested retail price of 2,299 AED (625 USD or 500 EUR).
Powered by Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread platform at launch, Motorola RAZR MAXX has been scheduled for an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade sometime in Q2 2012. Due to the fact that it packs a 3,300 mAh Li-Ion battery, the RAZR MAXX is a bit thicker than the Motorola RAZR. The phone measures 130.7 x 68.9 x 9 mm and weighs around 145g (battery included). According to Motorola, the high-capacity battery should provide up to 25 days of standby time or up to 17.6 hours of talk time. Expect continuous usage time to be much lower than the previous numbers.
“RAZR MAXX isn’t changing the rules - it’s creating a whole new game. Building on the RAZR heritage it combines the pinnacle of design with mind-blowing power and an incredible battery life that is perfect for people who want to push their smartphone to the limits,” said Raed Hafez, managing director for Motorola Mobility, Middle East & Africa. Customers across the United Arab Emirates who purchase the RAZR MAXX will enjoy the phone’s premium materials that gives the phone a stylish feel and feel. The smartphone’s battery hood is covered with KEVLAR fiber, while the display features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
RAZR MAXX is equipped with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and packs 1GB of RAM. Users can be sure they will have enough storage space at their disposal, as the RAZR MAXX embeds 16GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card. “Whether you want to watch hours of movies, or don’t want to worry about charging between meetings, this latest smartphone from Motorola redefines boundaries and banishes the low battery beep to history,” concluded Hafez.
