MOTOROLA has revealed its highly anticipated Razr 5G flip phone and it’s far more expensive than the beloved original.
The first Razr flip phones came out way back in 2004 but last year saw the modern reboot and now Razr 5G is here to step things up once again.
The new phone has software updates, more powerful specs and a more refined designed than the 2019 Razr.
It’s a bit sleeker, with slimmer edges and a shiny glass back.
The fingerprint sensor has been repositioned on the back of the phone.
It’s also slightly lighter than it’s predecessor, weighing in at 192 grams.
The Razr’s appeal has always been it’s ability to look just like a regular smartphone but fold in half with it’s bendable screen.
It’s Zero Gap Hinge has been refined for the new design, with the aim of having a tighter feel both folded and unfolded.
The full pOLED display is 6.2 inches and the smaller outside display screen is 2.7 inches .
Motorola says the phone is designed for 200,000 flips.
That’s around 100 flips a day for the next five years.
Razr 5G has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
That’s an update on the 2019 model.
The Quick View display has also received some updates and now let’s you open apps on the outside screen.
Previously, the screen could only show notifications.
Battery life has also got an upgrade with a new 2,800mAh offering, up from 2,510mAh.
Motorola think that this should give people solid all day battery life.
It’s also got an upgraded 48MP camera.
The resolution on the inside selfie camera has also been improved.
The Razr 5G will be avaliable to buy this autumn for £1399/$1399.
