Motorola has unveiled the improved RAZR 5G smartphone, which is the reincarnation of the cult mobile phone from the 2000th RAZR V3. The smartphone turned out to be an improved version of the Motorola RAZR, presented at the end of 2019.

The $ 1,500 premium gadget did not have outstanding performance at launch. Almost a year later, Motorola has released an updated RAZR 5G, which has become much more convenient, practical, more powerful, better quality and has acquired a module for 5G networks, reports The Verge.

At first glance, there are not many differences from the 2019 model: the location of the flash near the camera has changed, and the platform for the fingerprint scanner has disappeared at the bottom – it has been moved to the back panel and embedded in the round Moto logo.

The smartphone is very compact. When folded, its dimensions are 72.6 x 91.7 x 16 mm, and when unfolded, it is 72.6 x 169.2 x 7.9 mm. Compared to the first generation, the thickness has increased by 2 mm when closed and by 1 mm when open, while the height, on the contrary, has decreased by 2 mm. The weight has also decreased, from 205 to 192 grams.

In terms of calls, the RAZR 5G has redesigned the antenna placement. Now there are four antennas in the corners of the case, so it is more difficult to cover them with your hand when open, which is more difficult when closed. We are promised more reliable signal reception in the fifth generation networks. The smartphone also has a slot for a physical SIM card – the first version had only a “virtual” e-SIM and was irrelevant for a number of countries.

The next generation Motorola RAZR received a Snapdragon 765 processor (instead of the Snapdragon 710), 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The autonomy will be answered by a 2800 mAh battery, which holds a charge for a full day. Android 10 is available out of the box.

The set of cameras has been updated: the new “clamshell” uses a 48-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor as the main camera. Front camera resolution is 20 megapixels.

The main 6.2-inch pOLED RAZR display has a resolution of 2142 x 876 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21: 9. On the outside there is an additional 2.7-inch gOLED screen with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. The characteristics have not changed, the pixel density is 373 ppi, that is, more than the Retina resolution. But the ways of interacting with the external screen have changed.

Now the gadget does not have to be opened for most simple actions: the external screen has a full-fledged Google keyboard, a set of applications that can be launched. There is navigation, messages and messengers, a player, work with a camera, a calendar, and so on.

The RAZR 5G also redesigned the opening mechanism. The smartphone is easy to open with one hand, like a conventional “clamshell”, and the main screen folds completely, leaving no gap between the halves. This was made possible by the thinnest plastic coating, not glass. Do not be afraid of the unreliability of the folding mechanism: Motorola conducts tests for bending the smartphone. The mechanism is designed for 200 thousand discoveries, which is more than 5 years of use with 100 openings per day.
