The classic Razr is back in an updated form factor.
Motorola Razr is one of the most iconic phones in the mid-2000s. The clamshell has a very recognizable design and Motorola decided to revive it. But since the button keyboard is not relevant in 2019, the company decided to follow modern trends and experiment with a flexible display. As a result, we got such a smartphone here:
The case of the new Razr is made of high quality stainless steel and 3D Gorilla Glass. The main focus is on the 6.2 ″ pOLED display with a resolution of 2142×876 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21: 9. At the top of the screen there is a small cutout, in place of which is located the speaker and camera. Motorola claims that the display is very resistant to bending and should last "as long as the screen of an average smartphone." When folded, the halves of the screen lie flat against each other, so debris and dust will not fall between them. In addition, moisture protection is claimed.
When the clamshell is folded, the user has another 2.7 ″ OLED display with a resolution of 800×600 pixels. It is designed to show notifications, access to quick settings, control the music player and can even be used as a viewfinder for taking selfies. Motorola is working to allow apps to seamlessly move from one screen to another.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset acts as the Motorola Razr hardware platform. And here the question arises as to why the company did not use the flagship chip, because the cost of the new product is $ 1,500. RAM is available 6 GB, internal – 128 GB. The main camera has a resolution of 16 MP, front – 5 MP.
The capacity of the built-in battery is only 2510 mAh. There is support for fast charging TurboPower (15 W). Also available modules Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, eSIM, fingerprint scanner, USB-C port. The device is running Android 9 Pie. The user can launch a special Razr mode that will mimic the design of the classic Razr button.
Pre-order for the new Motorola Razr starts on December 26th. The price is $ 1,500. But at the start, the smartphone will be available only from Verizon in the United States.
