Motorola RAZR MAXX V6 - Future phone

Motorola RAZR MAXX V6

Motorola RAZR MAXX V6

31 July 2006
Written by Mike Meers

Motorola have announced a fleet of new mobile handsets in recent days – including the upgraded model of the V3x, the Motorola RAZR MAXX V6. The V6 is a 3G compatible super-thin handset, with a 2mpx camera, microSD memory card support, touch sensitive front multimedia keys, Bluetooth, and HSDPA network connectivity.

The camera on the MAXX is a great change from the VGA camera that we were forced to use on the original RAZR handsets. The camera is of the 2mpx specification, supporting still image capture at 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution. It also supports a 8x digital zoom and there is a large internal memory (50MB) to store images and video, which the camera can also capture. There is an additional VGA digital camera which faces inwards – this can be used for video calling or you can use it to capture self portraits.

The MAXX has support for the so called “3.5G” HSDPA data protocol, which is capable of speeds up to 3.6Mbp/s (class 6). There are no publicly available HSDPA networks in Australia at the moment but many Asian countries have this technology up and running. The V6 will be compatible with Australian networks however, as it supports the GSM (2G) 900/1800/1900MHz and UTMS (3G) 2100MHz bands. GPRS and EDGE OTA data protocols are supported.

The MAXX improves on the V3x by being an amazing 5mm thinner, bringing the final size to 104mm x 53mm x 15mm. The original RAZR handset was 13.9mm, so the MAXX is still extremely thin. Other features upgraded from the V3x include Bluetooth v2+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate).

Another cool feature on the MAXX V6 and also the KRZR K1 is the glass front. It seems Motorola have taken a leaf out of LG’s book, by making this glass front touch-sensitive. There is a small LCD (120 x 160 pixels) on the front, and below are three keys for multimedia playback. Like the LG KG800 you’ll just have to tap them with your finger to get a response.

The main LCD on the MAXX is your (now) regular 240 x 320 pixel TFT LCD with 262,144 colour support. Other miscellaneous features built into the MAXX is the microSD memory card slot for more storage, blue LED’s around the front which light up on specific events (like a call, message, etc), and an advanced music/video player with extensive file format support.

The MAXX is due some time in the second half of 2006.
