Last November, Motorola “revived” its iconic Razr V3 clamshell folding phone, in the form of a foldable smartphone, called the Motorola Razr.
After less than a year, the company continued to release an upgraded version of this smartphone, called the Razr 5G.
The Razr 5G retains the same design of the clamshell folding screen as the old version, but the back has switched to using tempered glass, instead of the matte plastic back like the old version. The design of the secondary screen and the camera on the outside has also been changed to make the product more beautiful. The fingerprint sensor has also been placed on the back, instead of below the screen as in the old version.
The secondary screen on the outside of the product is still 2.7 inches in size, using OLED technology. Users can use this screen to view notifications, read messages, emails, activate virtual assistants … Especially, the content displayed on this small screen can be switched to a large interface. when the user opens the smartphone to use.
Above this secondary screen is a 48-megapixel camera (instead of just 16 megapixels as before) and users can use this secondary screen to take selfies. The product also comes with a ToF sensor to help focus faster when taking pictures. Anyway, being equipped with only one camera without a telephoto or wide-angle camera is also a minus point on the product compared to competitors.
The main screen is still 6.2 inches, with a resolution of 876 x 2142 and using p-OLED technology like the old version; 20 megapixel camera for selfies or video calls when using the smartphone in extended mode.
Not only changing the design, Motorola also upgraded the configuration for its folding screen smartphone when equipping Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G processor (upgraded from Snapdragon 710 chip), 8GB of RAM. attached 256GB storage memory, not support external memory card slot. The battery on the product is also raised to 2,800mAh, instead of 2,510mAh as the previous version. The product supports 15W fast charging.
Named Razr 5G, it is not surprising that the product also supports 5G network connectivity, but only supports 5G networks below 6GHz, not mmWave high frequency 5G networks. However, the connection speed will still outperform the 4G network.
Obviously, in terms of configuration, the Razr 5G cannot be compared to other foldable smartphones on the market such as Galaxy Z Fold2 or Huawei Mate X, but the advantage of the product is that it has a “softer” price.
The Razr 5G will go on sale this fall, at $ 1,399, $ 100 cheaper than the old version.
