Motorola has unveiled a second-generation Razr with much better cameras, improved hinge, and 5G. Like the first Motorola Razr, the new iteration is keeping the same old combination of foldable screen and nostalgic folding mechanism, i.e. folding screen instead of front hinge and screen all along. But what else does it bring? Let’s find out.
The Motorola Razr 5G comes with a “water repellant design” comprising an external 2.7-inch G-OLED screen with 800 x 600 resolution and 370 ppi pixel density and an internal 6.2-inch foldable P-OLED capacitive touchscreen with 876 x 2142 pixels resolution, and 71.1% screen-to-body ratio.
The external screen supports gesture navigation and apps including camera, messages, calculator, Google Keep, Google News, Google Home, and YouTube by default, while you can manually permit any desirable app on the screen.
At the core lies a 7nm based Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset — which is quite an upgrade from last year’s model — paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage. The device runs on Android 10.
Razr 5G doesn’t come with a 3.5mm audio jack but it features A2DP Bluetooth 5.0 with LE, GPS, NFC, USB 3.0 with Type-C 1.0 reversible connector. The fingerprint scanner has been shifted from the chin to a much familiar position at the back. It uses a 2,800mAh cell with 15W charging support to keep the lights on.
The Motorola Razr 5G could hit the Chinese and select European market anytime between late September and December 2020 in Polished Graphite (Black or Dark Grey), Liquid Mercury (Silver), and Blush Gold colors. Other markets will gradually follow. The unlocked device is said to go on sale in the US at Best Buy, B&H, Amazon, and the company’s own online store starting $1,399.
