Motorola Takes Another Chance with the Second-Generation RAZR

After the resurrection of the RAZR branding was overshadowed by Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip, Motorola is taking another chance with the second-generation RAZR. While it has the same nostalgic-inducing foldable form factor as its predecessor, the second-generation RAZR gets a big boost with the internals. This time around, you are getting a 5G-capable Snapdragon 765G processor that is paired with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.

Subtle changes to the design include a relocated fingerprint scanner—which is now at the back with an embedded Motorola logo.

The displays remain the same:  2.7-inch gOLED for the outer display and 6.2-inch pOLED for the foldable inner display. The outer display gains more functionality, as it works with apps like camera, messages, calculator, Google Keep, Google News, Google Home, and YouTube on top of gesture navigation.

Also new to the RAZR 5G are the cameras: the primary camera is 48-megapixel f/1.7 snapper with OIS, and laser autofocus while the selfie snapper is 20-megapixels with an f/2.2 aperture. The battery gets a slight bump too, which is now at 2800mAh. Charging speeds remain the same at 15w.

For all these changes, the RAZR 5G is $100 more affordable than its predecessor at $1399(~Php 68k), making it priced closer to the Galaxy Z Flip. It will be available in the US, China, and select European markets this Fall.
