Motorola today took the stage in China to introduce its latest clamshell phone, the Razr 2022. The announcement come only a day after Samsung’s foldable phones were unveiled. And interestingly, the Razr 2022 will go head to head against the new Z Flip 4. So, let’s get into the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Motorola Razr 2022 in Nepal.

Motorola Razr 2022 Overview:

Design, Display

A Makeover

The new Razr 2022 brings a significant redesign for the foldable. Unlike its predecessor, the company has ditched the enormous chin of the primary display to accommodate larger screen real estate.

You’re now looking at a 6.7-inch canvas, up from 6.2-inch on the original Razr and Razr 5G. And since this is a flagship phone, Motorola has included all the bells and whistles on the screen. 

It’s a Full HD+ resolution OLED display with 10-bit color depth and HDR 10+ certification. Plus with a 144Hz refresh rate, it also has the fastest refreshing screen of any clamshell folding phone.

Beats the Flip

Moving on, compared to the measly 1.9-inch screen on the Z Flip 4, the Razr 2022 flaunts a large 2.7-inch cover display. No prizes for guessing that this is an AMOLED panel and boasts a resolution of 800x 573 pixels.

The cover feature lets you swipe between nine different widget panels, including weather, fitness goals, a camera, and more. You may also reply to text messages from this screen, saving you from the hassle of entering the main screen repeatedly.

Motorola has also redesigned the hinge mechanism in order to provide a gapless folding design. The Razr 2022 employs the company’s third-generation water-drop style folding mechanism, which aids in achieving a creaseless display.

Performance

Powering the device is a flagship SoC for 2022, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. That is a significant improvement over the Snapdragon 765G of the original Motorola Razr. 

Likewise, the device is offered with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.1 storage. On the software front, it runs Android 12 with MyUI 4 on top.

Additionally, the company has added new software features such as Ready For 3.5, which lets customers connect the device to an external to enjoy a full-fledged desktop PC experience. There’s also a function similar to Samsung’s Flex Mode that allows you to use your phone hands-free by propping it up on a surface.

Camera

Motorola Razr 2022 Cameras

As for the optics, the main camera module is positioned horizontally just above the secondary display. It’s a dual camera array headed by a 50-megapixel sensor with OIS. This is accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera that can also work as a macro snapper. A 32-megapixel selfie camera is housed in the main display.

Rest of the specs

Furthermore, the Razr 2022 gets its juice from a 3500mAh battery. That is a 200mAh less capacity than the Flip4, and Motorola has not provided any battery life statistics. In any case, with 33W fast charging support, it charges somewhat faster than the Flip 4.

There is a dual speaker configuration that supports Dolby Atmos for audio. It also has a RichTap X-axis linear motor for robust vibration feedback.
