Motorola has just resurrected the legendary Razr, a popular 2000s pop-up smartphone, in the form of an astonishing foldable smartphone. As retro as futuristic, it is sublimated with a screen of 6.2 inches in 21: 9 format that folds vertically.
Despite its high price of 1499 dollars, the Razr inherits a technical sheet a little disappointing.
On November 13, 2019, Motorola finally introduced its Razr, its first foldable smartphone. Very similar to the mythical flip phone (or flip phone) of the same name, the smartphone is distinguished by its 6.2-inch (2142 × 876) OLED plastic screen when it is unfolded.
In the centre of the smartphone, there is a hinge to fold the terminal in two vertically. Motorola titles this type of screen the Flex View. The design of the Razr is similar to that of Samsung’s future Galaxy Fold 2.
By cons, like the Galaxy Fold’s first name, the Razr is equipped with a 2.7-inch (600 x 800-pixel) secondary display designed to display contextual information, such as time, notifications, and to communicate with the user. Google Assistant.
This screen also allows you to preview the photos you are going to take or to easily access the network settings of your phone.
Despite its premium positioning, the Motorola Razr inherits a technical sheet rather mid-range.
It is powered by a Snapdragon 710 with only 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage (expandable via MicroSD) and a tiny battery of 2510 mAh compatible with 15W fast charging.
A fingerprint sensor is integrated into the rear panel. No player under the screen or facial recognition.
In terms of photography, Motorola is relying on a 16 Mpx sensor accessible when the screen is unfolded. Once folded, you will have to fall back on a sensor of 5 Mpx located under the secondary screen. Finally, the smartphone runs Android 9 Pie while most manufacturers already deploy Android 10.
A price of 1499 dollars
At first, the Motorola Razr will be reserved for the US market. The collapsible flip-top smartphone will be sold exclusively by the American operator Verizon at a price of 1499.99 dollars.
For now, it is unclear whether the firm intends to market the smartphone on the French market or in other European countries. What do you think of Razr? Could you crack for a device like this?
