Motorola celebrates the revival of its Razr phone. The new model of this flip phone comes with a foldable display and wants to be like the Samsung Galaxy Fold in folds.
For almost a year, it's clear that Motorola wants to build folds, which will more or less be based on the best-selling Razr V3 design. On Wednesday, Lenovo's daughter officially revealed a smartphone. However, the German market will not be ready until 2020.
Motorola's first foldable can be opened vertically like a flip-phone from 2004. Inside there is a large folding screen that is disturbed at the top by the Notch for Selfiecam. The main OLED screen has a diagonal of 6.4 inches and a resolution of 2142 x 876 pixels. Without creases, this device measures 172 x 72 x 14 millimeters – even longer than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro (test) 6.8 inch model, which makes it at 162 millimeters. That took so long, had to lie on a large chin, mounted on an antenna and fingerprint sensor.
Like a classic, on the outside of the new Razr is a 2.7-inch secondary OLED screen with a resolution of 600 x 800 pixels. Notifications, dates, times and other content can be seen there. The secondary display must also be able to quickly reply to messages.
The new razr is made of stainless steel and 3D Gorilla Glass. With color, Motorola is orienting itself to the original. To protect the flexible appearance from dust and dirt during transportation, Motorola has designed the patented first hinged hinge, with the two parts of the device aligned.
The Motorola Razr (2019) will come to Germany from 2020
In addition to the five megapixel selfie camera, the new Razr features a 16 megapixel main camera, f / 1.7 aperture, electronic image stabilizer (EIS), two-pixel autofocus, and laser AF. It is located at the top of the device and is supported by a dual LED color balancer LED (CCT) if needed. Folded, the main camera also functions as a self-recording, while the external display functions as a viewfinder.
This device is supported by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, which is located in the upper middle class. Flash memory can choose between four gigabytes of RAM and 64 gigabytes or six gigabytes of RAM with 128 gigabytes. Batteries with an output value of 2,730 milliamp hours are even smaller than Pixel 4 (test). For a 6.2 inch diagonal screen it will be a little tight. This device is charged via USB-C with Motorola turbopower charging technology, which produces 27 watts.
On the software side, Razr comes with Android 9 naturally. The OS version isn't up to date, unfortunately Motorola isn't as fast as before with Android updates.
The Motorola Razr is offered according to the manufacturer starting in December in certain markets in Europe. In Germany, the launch of the black model market will take place during the first half of 2020. Motorola has not mentioned European travel, in the US, the company needs around 1,500 US dollars. The same price we expect in this country.
Razr is a good fold, but unfortunately it's too expensive. That $ 1,500 device in mid-November is still presented with Android 9, is also disappointing. However, it's nice to see that manufacturers with the category of Folding devices are just playing around and want to bring classic life to life with modern technology. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the display should not be too strong, because there is no folding glass that can be placed protectively on a panel like with a conventional smartphone in a bar design.
