Could the third try be the charm for the resurrected Razr flip phone?

With a new iteration of the once-iconic Razr flip-phone, Lenovo-owned mobile technology veteran Motorola has chosen to once again enter the foldable phone market. This device has all the makings of a better, more affordable alternative to the Galaxy Z Flip4 announced yesterday but has only been released in China.

Motorola released a killer clamshell communicator that screamed high fashion and sold in the millions back in the early to mid-noughties when the handsets in our pockets were used to actually speak to people while we were out and about instead of serving as our entertainment hubs, personal assistants, virtual meeting places, lifestyle coaches, and digital lifelines.
In 2019, the business introduced the flip phone form factor to the smartphone era, and the following year it enhanced the formula. And now, a brand-new Razr has been unveiled, albeit, for now, it will only be available in China.

The chic flipper has a 6.7-inch OLED main display that is comparable to Samsung’s, but a 144-Hz refresh rate that surpasses Samsung’s. The device features support for HDR10+ dynamic content, the ability to divide the on-screen image into two display sections across the fold, and a hole-punched 32-megapixel selfie cam.

There are several widgets, backdrops, and watch faces to select from, and the Quick View cover screen is the same size as before at 2.7 inches. This is an upgrade above Samsung’s Flip4 effort, which only managed 1.9 inches.

For 2022, the Razr loses its chin, increasing the size of the primary display to 6.7 diagonal inches.

The lower wing of the Razr 2022 model does not have a chin like previous models had, thus when it is unfolded, it is almost entirely made of screen. The capacity to stand partially opened in the hand or on a flat surface, as well as an enhanced hinge for a gapless fold, are said to provide you additional opportunities to interact, capture, and create.

The new Razr’s internal hardware is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile chipset, which supports up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. It has a 3,500 mAh battery and runs Android 12 under the MyUI 4.0 overlay. It also supports 30-W TurboPower charging over USB-C. In terms of wireless connectivity, 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, and Bluetooth 5.2 are expected.

The 2022 Razr has a twin camera array consisting of a 50-MP main camera with a 1/1.55-inch sensor and optical image stabilization and a 13-MP ultra-wide. The Razr2 only featured a single camera on the rear. While the ultra-wide can capture 4K UHD at 30 fps, the main camera can record 8K footage at 30 fps. Additionally, it features dual speakers that support Dolby Atmos audio.

That is all we have to say at this time. Prices at the unveiling earlier today began at CNY 5,999, which equals around US$890; however, that price is unlikely to apply if or when it reaches the US (given that the second version initially cost
