Motorola have announced a new flagship device powered by Intel processors.

The RAZR i will be launched in Europe and feature a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 2,000mAh of battery, an 8-megapixel camera and a 2Ghz Intel 'Medfield' processor.

It will not run the latest version of Google's Android operating system at launch however - and is only listed as 'upgradeable' to Android Jelly Bean.

Motorola said it was the most important RAZR release in the UK since the original RAZR phone way back in 2003.

"Together with Intel, we're redefining what people can expect from a mobile device. A camera that launches in an instant, Web pages that load blazingly fast and a device that's the perfect balance of screen size and fit in hand," said Jim Wicks, senior vice president, consumer experience design, Motorola Mobility.

"RAZR i delivers just that when you put an Intel-fast processor in a beautifully designed phone and add in extra long battery life."

It is a reworked version of the Droid RAZR M released to middling reviews earlier this month in the US.

The phone will be launched on Orange, T-Mobile, Phones4U, Virgin Media, and Tesco in the UK, and could prove a strong competitor among specs-minded buyers to the new Apple iPhone 5 as well as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.
