Motorola has been riding on the wave of nostalgia ! In 2004, the brand came out with the Razr V3, one of the phones the most iconic of his generation. This year, after a facelift, it is back on the front of the stage in presenting a stunning display foldable.
Check out the Razr, the new flagship of Motorola, its screen foldable, its price and its technical specifications.
Price and availability of the Motorola Razr .
Since 17 February, the Razr is available for sale on the site Motorola, to 1 699,99 €, however it will be sent to you that at the end of march.
Be aware that it is also available to pre-order on la Fnac and Darty.
In comparison, the Galaxy Fold is sold 2 020 €, the Galaxy Z Flip to 1 500 € and iPhone 11 Pro Max from 1 259 €.
Design of the Motorola Razr.
While the screens of the Galaxy Fold, and the Huawei Mate X bend to the vertical, the Razr remains loyal to the horizontal.
Motorola claims to have tested over 20 different prototypes to find the fold perfect.
Instead of having a screen separated from the keyboard by a hinge, visible, the Razr is a smartphone the whole screen, and compact end.
It has been made from stainless steel and it is protected by a glass Gorilla Glass 3D. Its hinge is only noticeable on the edges of the screen of the Motorola.
For the lower part of the Razr, also commonly called “chin”, we find the specific form of the model Razr V3. Inside the Razr, Motorola has integrated an antenna encased in a water resistant coating. As for the fingerprint reader, it has been placed under the screen.
We have recently seen images of the new Razr in a gold and black :
Unveiled by Evan Blass, this model “Blush Gold” has been confirmed by Motorola and will be available in the spring.
Technical characteristics of the Motorola Razr
Motorola has called it his screen 6.2 inch Flex View. It is equipped with OLED technology and has a large format 21:9 with a resolution 2142 x 876.
When you close the Razr, on its front side you will see a screen Quick View of 2.7 inches. It allows you to take a look at your notifications (calls, messages.) but also to control the music and take selfies.
With its foldable design, the sensor selfie is also the module main camera. It is a goal to 16Mp with an aperture of f/1.7 and a sensor for night vision. You will also find a 5Mp camera within the Razr.
With regards to its performance, the Razr is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 a bit of a disappointment especially for a smartphone at this price. Otherwise, it has 6 Gb of RAM and 128 Gb of storage and has no microSD card slot.
A battery was placed on each side of the hinge, and the two combined give a total of 2 510 mAh. A low result compared to the 3,000 mAh minimum present on other models. Motorola promises to be a day of autonomy, then, case to follow..
It is equipped with a USB port-C and a charger TurboPower 15W is supplied with. Without surprise, it is, also, devoid of the headphone jack.
Finally, another disappointment, the Razr runs on Android 9 Pie while most of its competitors, and less expensive, using Android 10.
