Motorola Back On 5G Network With Two New Smartphones
Motorola has dipped its toes again into 5G connectivity with the launch of two high-speed data phones, the Razr 5G and the Moto G 5G Plus.
In its first ever offering for 5G, the phone manufacturer is releasing its newest generation of the Razr flip phone – a small, pocketable device which echoes Razr’s timeless design.
The Razr 5G is equipped with advanced camera technology, a larger battery, tapered chin and a relocated fingerprint sensor in comparison to the earlier standard Razr model.
Motorola says it filed 100 patents for the technology used in the design and guts of the Motorola Razr 5G, including its folding mechanism and quick view display.
The Razr has four 5G antennas built in for maximum coverage and its processor is a 5G Qualcomm Snapdragon for ultimate performance and connectivity.
During development for the Razr, Motorola says it conducted flip tests to ensure it can withstand 200,000 flips, which it calculated is five years of use.
The Razr 5G is made with a 2800mAh battery and its battery life is around 24 hours.
The Razr’s camera has a 48MP resolution, with an f/1.7 aperture and a 26mm focal length. It also shoots 4K video at 30fps.
At $2299, the Razr 5G won’t be available on carrier payment plans and will be available at JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman.
Also on the 5G network, Motorola is introducing the Moto G 5G Plus as the newest addition to Motorola’s G family.
At a much more affordable $499, the 5G Plus has a taller screen than its predecessors and has all the familiar Android features and a uniquely customisable experience.
According to Motorola, the mid-tier 5G Plus has faster processors, better AI cameras and is the best Moto G phone so far.
Equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 mobile processor, the 5G Plus has the standard 5000mAh battery and can last two days on a single charge.
With a 6.7’’ cinema vision display at 90Hz, Motorola says this model has the largest display in the mid-tier smartphone range.
It’s also capable of 21×9 streaming in HDR10, which gives it a sharp and beautiful contrast with an edge-to-edge display.
The 5G Plus also has a 48mp quad camera and the first-ever dual selfie camera on a Motorola device.
The Motorola G 5G Plus will retail for $499 and is available through Telstra, Vodafone and Motorola from November 10.
Also available in the G family is Motorola’s upgraded G9 Plus, which is updated from the standard G9 Play with a 64mp quad pixel camera, a 30W turbo charger, Snapdragon 730g processor and a 6.8inch max vision display.
The G9 Plus will retail for $399 and is available in Australia from November 10.
