Motorola Unveil Next-Gen 5G Razr Foldable Phone
Following a slew of rumours and leaked images, Motorola has unveiled the successor to its iconic ‘Razr’ foldable smartphone, featuring 5G-support and more powerful components.
The next-gen Razr foldable sports a series of design refinements, and addresses previous feedback by owners of the predecessor.
The handset continues to pay homage to its iconic flip-phone, with the latest version offering a thicker build, reduced ‘chin’ size, and rear fingerprint scanner. Increased thickness houses a slew of internal improvements, including more powerful camera parts.
The handset offers a 20MP and 48MP camera, powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8GB RAM and a 2,800mAh battery.
The front facing 2.7-inch screen has received a slew of functional upgrades, including quick access to many apps such as Google News, Google Home and YouTube. Users can also add apps to the quick access panel, which increases the likelihood of not having to open the handset, extending battery life.
Whilst Australian pricing and availibity is yet to be confirmed, the new Motorola Razr 5G will release in the United States later this year for US$1399 – around US$100 cheaper than its predecessor.
The news comes as the foldable phone category continues to expand, with entrants from the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip.
