Motorola has announced its second-generation foldable smartphone Razr 5G. This is a successor to the last year's Razr which was the company's first foray in the foldable smartphone segment. As one would expect, the newer version comes with a few noteworthy improvements over the original version. The main highlight is obviously the 5G connectivity support.
The new Motorola Razr 5G features the same foldable mechanism that gives it the feel of a clamshell phone. It sports a 6.2-inch pOLED main display with 2142 x 876 pixels resolution and a 2.7-inch gOLED secondary display with 800 x 600 pixels resolution. The two panels have an aspect ratio of 21:9 and 4:3 respectively. The second panel is present on the outside and is meant for showing vital information when the phone is in a folded state.
Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with Adreno 620 GPU. There is a single configuration variant featuring 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. Motorola has also made improvements to the camera department. It has offered a 48-megapixel Quad Pixel rear camera with f/1.7 aperture and a 20-megapixel Quad Pixel front camera with f/2.2 aperture.
The whole package is powered by a 2,800mAh battery with 15W fast charging compatibility. The phone will run Motorola's My UX based on Android 10 out of the box. Motorola has promised guaranteed two major OS upgrades and bi-monthly security updates for the device. Other noteworthy features include a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC.
The Motorola Razr 5G has been priced at $1,399 for the unlocked variant. It will be sold via Amazon, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Motorola starting this fall. The carrier-locked variant of the phone will be available with T-Mobile and AT&T in the United States.
