Today Motorola announces the successor to their foldable Razr flip phone, named the Razr 5G. It is not only a 5G version of the original but a full redesign of the product, focusing on every aspect of the device.
Moto Razr 5G
The first thing to notice in the second-gen foldable phone from Motorola is the hinge. The company says that the Razr 5G is tested for 200,000 flips, so it will withstand for five years if the user opened it 100 times per day. The improved hinge is now quieter compared to its predecessor and the chin is more smoother now. The next change is fingerprint scanner, which is now moved to the rear panel.
The Razr 5G now has a complete glass body instead of its predecessor’s plastic body in terms of build.
The display remains the same, 6.2-inch pOLED display with 876×2142 pixel resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio, and the external 2.7-inch Quick View OLED display, which now has a better display for notification and can run any app.
The Razr 5G is powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset paired with up to 8GB RAM and 256GB storage in terms of internals.
In terms of optics, The primary sensor has been improved as we said above, everything has been improved. Now the rear camera has a 48MP primary sensor that uses quad pixel technology for 12MP images and has an aperture of f/1.7. Although it’s the single lens, but jumping to 48MP from 16MP primary sensor used in its predecessor is a considerable improvement, and just like the rear camera, the selfie camera is also improved to 20MP from 5MP with updated camera UI.
This time the company packs a bigger battery of 2,800mAh; previously, there is only a 2,510mAh battery in the original Moto Razr. The phone will also support 18W fast-charging via USB Type-C port at the bottom.
The Razr 5G will support 5G, Bluetooth 5.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac in terms of connectivity with no headphone jack (shocking). The device will run on Motorola’s customized UI based on Android 10 out of the box.
