It’s been less than a year since Motorola revived its iconic RAZR brand (again) for the new world of high-style, high-priced foldable phones, but a second model has already been announced. The new RAZR (of the same name) has no shipping date, but AT&T and T-Mobile will sell it for $ 1
The biggest technical improvement is a 5G radio that comes on a chip thanks to the Snapdragon 765G system. The screens appear to be more or less the same as the original version (6.2 inches inside, 2.7 inches outside), but with improved software, you can do more with the phone closed, e.g. B. Google Pay access and full control keyboard for SMS. The memory is increased from 6 GB to 8 GB and the memory is doubled to 256 GB.
One of the biggest problems reviewers had with the RAZR was its lackluster cameras – Motorola has never been particularly good with them. The new model increases the rear-view camera (which is of course located in the upper fold area under the screen) from 16 megapixels to 48. The front-facing interior camera ranges from just 5 MP to 20 megapixels.
Other bodywork improvements include glass panels instead of plastic, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader (in the Motorola logo), and an improved, smoother hinge for the folding mechanism. The battery gets a big boost, although at 2800 mAh it’s still significantly smaller than similarly sized non-foldable phones. It keeps the throwback look of the old school RAZR flip phones.
With the second-generation Samsung Galaxy Z Fold and Microsoft Surface Duo, Motorola has even more competition for its latest attempt at a foldable phone. We’ll see if it can overcome reviews complaining about short battery life and less than top-notch build quality this time around.
