Motorola has resurrected its iconic Razr brand with a new handset that it claims is the thinnest smartphone in the world, measuring just 7.1mm thick. It’s light, too – tipping the scales at just 127g.

The Razr’s large 4.3in 540×960-pixel Super AMOLED screen is protected by Corning Gorilla glass – and the robust protection continues at the rear, where the phone’s chassis is constructed from woven Kevlar carbon fibre, with microSIM and microSD cards easily accessible at the side, under a fold-down cover.

There’s also an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash can shoot Full HD 1080p video, and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for videoconferencing.

Inside, you’ll find a Texas Instruments 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage – though sadly, you’ll find the version of Android onboard is 2.3 Gingerbreda, rather than the very latest Ice Cream Sandwich.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at OneMobileRing to bring you an exclusive unboxing of the super-slim new handset, together with the contents of its retail pack.

Check it out in the video below, and look out for a full review coming soon.
