Motorola Razr 5G specifications
The Razr 5G is the second folding smartphone from Motorola this year for the premium segment. The new model now supports 5G connectivity and gets performance upgrades all around. The design of the phone remains unchanged mostly but Motorola has refined it to make it comfortable. You can read our first impressions of the Motorola Razr 5G.
The Razr 5G comes with a 6.2-inch 21:9 foldable OLED display. This display makes use of the same clever hinge mechanism from the 2019 Razr. Hence, despite folding the display, you won’t see any crease on it. The display even slides underneath the chin to help avoid the crease. Motorola has made the Razr 5G water repellant as well.
There’s a 2.7-inch Quick View display on the outside that now has more functions than before. Users can run full smartphone apps from the Quick View display. One can respond to messages, make calls, and even take selfies using the main camera. Speaking of the camera, there’s still a single 48-megapixel camera that promises superior performance, even in low light situations. There’s also a 20-megapixel video camera on top of the main display.
As for performance, the Razr 5G relies on a Snapdragon 765G chipset. This is vastly superior to the Snapdragon 710 of the original Razr. Motorola is offering a near-stock and clean build of Android 10 with the usual Motorola customization options. The Razr 5G is assured of two Android OS upgrades and three years of security support. There is 8GB RAM and 256GB storage onboard to help with things.
The Razr 5G also gets a physical SIM card tray along with the eSIM functionality. A 2800mAh battery promises to keep the phone alive for an entire day. There’s support for 15W fast charging via a USB-C port.
