razr open

The Motorola Droid RAZR is about the thinnest Android smartphone to date, measuring a mere 7.1 mm in thickness. Having an extremely thin device does not mean you have to compromise power, though. The Droid RAZR comes packed with some of the best specs out there. And since current 4G LTE devices are relatively thick, you have to wonder how Motorola managed to make this possible.

It seems Motorola knows we’ve been wondering; they recently published a video[1] explaining their technique. They basically got rid of all the air pockets, laminating and condensing all the components together. Take a look at the video to see what this is all about.

If you prefer knowing how to open devices and take them apart, we have something special for you. The device was released today, and the guys from ifixit already have a tear-down guide for you. Simply follow their guide, and you’ll be able to take the guts out of the super thin Droid RAZR.

Check out the video, as well as ifixit’s guide, to see more details about the way this “impossibly thin” device is built. Also, don’t forget to take a look at Anthony’s first impressions if you’re interested in purchasing this smartphone. Stay tuned for an upcoming full review.
