Motorola and Intel tease September 18th: “edge-to-edge, speed”

Motorola and Intel tease September 18th: “edge-to-edge, speed”
Motorola and Intel are holding a joint event on September 18th and all chances are that we’ll hear about a brand new Atom-based smartphone and now Motorola has revealed a tiny little bit about it. “Edge-to-edge” and “speed” will be the two keywords about the upcoming device, and the rest is encoded in images of high-speed cars and crashing waves.

Now, the performance part of the new device that’s allegedly coming is clear, but what seems really exciting is the edge to edge screen. We’ve seen Motorola do some amazing job by putting a 4.3-inch screen in the extremely compact, almost iPhone-like in terms of size Droid RAZR M, so that’s one way to think about this upcoming announcement.

What do you expect to see on September 18th, in just a week? Let us know in the comments below.

Agree, we don't know, but should be good, knowing Intel's and Motorola's reputation. :)

I'm betting intel won't be worth looking at until it's a bit more powerful/less power hungry. Right now they're kinda meh. Although if it was Z2580 with a larger battery, achieved.

I certainly don't want the chipset to ruin what seems like a very good designed phone.

Early benchmarks from back in April suggested it was better than the dual-core TI chipset found in a lot of Motorola phones. It didn't stack up that well against the S4 or Exynos chipsets that are now being offered. However, they could've updated the chipset between then and now or introduced something new. It also is sort-of a grey area when mentioning benchmarks since I believe Intel's chipset is going to be based on x86 architecture and I am unsure of whether those benchmarks are designed to accept x86 processing (this is just my guess).

OS should accept architecture and if OS accepts it then benchmarks accepts it too.

That battery would of course be made of lithium-energon correct?

I hope it isn't another variant of the Razr phone. They just announced 3 so far and the past six months they already released several. It would only be good if its something new.

Over the past six months they have released *two.* One, really. I wouldn't consider the Photon Q to be a Razr style device. And if they keep the design consistent with the Razr philosophy and release this as a true flagship on a different carrier than Verizon, I'm all for it. It wouldn't behoove Motorola to throw everything into one carrier in the US.

I don't know what you think you are talking about, but Motorola has actually been fairly quiet lately on devices. So far this year they've released 20 devices, of which only 10 has come to the US and of those 10, 7 are on major US carriers. And in the last 6 months, the only Razr branded devices that have been announced/released are the Droid Razr HD, Droid Razr Maxx HD, and Droid Razr M. The Razr Maxx might have been announced in April, but it is the international version of the Droid Razr Maxx that was released in late January.

Actually the Razr Maxx was available from Verizon on the 26th of January. I was able to get mine back in April. The Razr was on Verizon sometime October of last year.

He said late Jan and you "correct" him with Jan 26th?

The RAZR came out 11/11/11....the day I got mine.

The rumored edge-to-edge is now coming. Nice!

I seen it not truly edge to edge but close to the edge on both sides but not bottom to top.

Intel said android don't use the multiple cores efficiently....so did they found a solution for it or just goin with dual core which performs as usual........

I wish that too :D better yet i7! Too bad that would never happen for a while since there is no way for a phone to handle that kind of processor without heat problem. The whole phone would melt :P (kind of want to see that happens.)
