Earlier in November, Lenovo-owned Motorola joined the club of foldable smartphone makers by launching the Motorola razr. The smartphone was supposed to go on sale in the US from January 9th, but it didn’t happen. The company had delayed the launch of the Motorola razr as it encountered supply issues due to high demand for the new razr. However, now, after a short delay, the brand will finally start selling the handset from February 6th. The US carrier will start taking pre-orders of the new Motorola razr starting from January 26th.
Motorola razr specifications and features
Unlike the other foldable smartphones like the Galaxy Fold and Mate X, the Motorola razr folds vertically. The phone has a large screen on the inside with a huge chin at the bottom that has a home button, which doubles as a fingerprint sensor. The handset has a small display on the outside that shows notifications, date, time, weather information, and more.
As for the other features, the Motorola razr offers a 6.2-inch Flex View CinemaVision pOLED main screen with a resolution of 2,142 x 876 pixels, and a 2.7-inch secondary gOLED display. Under the hood, the phone offers an octa-core Snapdragon 710 processor, which is aided by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Software-wise, the device boots Android 9 Pie out of the box.
In the camera department, the Motorola razr has a single 16MP shooter on the back with Night Vision mode, f/1.7 aperture, Dual Pixel tech, EIS, laser autofocus, and a dual-LED flash unit. For selfies, the phone is equipped with a 5MP snapper. The connectivity features are standard including 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-C, NFC, and GPS. A 2,510mAh battery with 15W fast charging support keeps the handset running.
