Motorola RAZR D1 and RAZR D3 launched in Brazil

While we wait for the famed X Phone, or even the upper-midrange device that got leaked earlier today, Motorola has been busy in Brazil, announcing two new handsets: The RAZR D1 and RAZR D3.

As you can see, they borrow extensively from the looks of the new RAZR series (RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, RAZR M/i), but they’re lower-end. They seem to be aimed at developing markets, hence why Brazil was chosen as the launch territory. That said, it’s unclear if or when these two will make it to other countries.

Interestingly, owners of the RAZR D1 and RAZR D3 have a guaranteed upgrade to the next version of Android. This, Motorola claims, is a first for devices at these price points, and we’d have to agree. We do that while wondering whether Motorola means Key Lime Pie, which is at this moment the next version of the OS, or Android 4.2, which would be next after the 4.1 iteration that these handsets will both run from day one. Regardless, you’re apparently guaranteed to get one update at some point.

On to specs then. The RAZR D1 is the lower-end of the duo, and it comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen, a 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, an FM radio, and a 1,785 mAh battery. It will come in single-SIM and dual-SIM versions, with black or white coloring. It should already be out in Brazil for R$ 549, which is around $280.

The RAZR D3 has a 4-inch touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 2,000 mAh battery. It too shall have both single-SIM as well as dual-SIM versions, and should come in black or white. It’s expected on the market in Brazil in a few weeks, and it’s going to cost R$ 799, which amounts to $408 at the current exchange rates.
