Motorola Razr 5G brings some much-needed upgrades over its predecessor

Motorola has launched the 2020 iteration of the Razr. With the latest foldable smartphone, the company is trying to solve all the problems of the last year’s Razr. Let’s check out the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Motorola Razr 5G (2020) in Nepal.

Motorola Razr 5G Overview

Design and Display

Motorola Razr 5G Folded

From the outside, the new Razr 5G looks similar to last year’s Razr. However, on a closer look, you can notice some minor differences. For instance, Motorola has moved the physical fingerprint sensor from the chin to the back of the device. Also, the edges and corners are more rounded and curved on the new Razr 5G. The frames are made up of aluminum while the hinges are built from stainless steel. Similarly, the body of the device is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

Moto Razr 5G sports a 6.2-inch foldable pOLED panel with an HD+ resolution. It has a tall aspect ratio of 21:9. Similarly, it also has an external display that can be used to quickly access notifications. The gOLED “Quick View” display measures 2.7-inch and sports a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, it packs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G. Not only does the new processor bring improvement in the raw power, but it also has an integrated modem for 5G connectivity. It is to be noted that the device will only support the slower sub-6GHz 5G band. The inclusion of the latest processor will definitely help Motorola in the sales pitch.

Motorola has also installed a bigger memory on the device. Compared to the 6GB of RAM on the Razr, the 5G variant now comes with 8GB of RAM. Similarly, the brand has doubled the internal storage to 256GB. Similarly, there is now a dedicated slot for a physical SIM card while the original Razr from 2019 only supported eSIM.

Camera

Motorola has also improved the camera. The main rear camera now uses a 48MP sensor instead of 16MP. It now has a laser autofocus ToF sensor and OIS support. On the front, the company has bumped the size of the camera sensor from 5MP to 20MP.

Motorola Razr 5G Camera UI

Other than the change in the hardware, the new Moto Razr 5G also sees some improvement in the camera UI. It is the first device to feature Moto Camera 3.0. Similarly, the native camera app also supports new features such as Instant Review, External Review, and Camera Cartoon. To sum it up, the camera app on the Moto Razr 5G is optimized to make better use of the external Quick View display.

Rest of the Specs

Motorola has installed a slightly bigger battery of 2,800mAh battery on the new Razr 5G. A 15W charger will be included in the box. At first glance, the battery may seem insufficient for a 5G phone but the device is designed in a way that the user will be interacting with the smaller external display most of the time.

Thus, Motorola has improved the functionality of the Quick View Display. The device ships with Android 10. Motorola has promised at least two major Android updates.
