First generation. The design of the smartphone referred to the iconic Razr V3 cell from 2004, but it was equipped with modern solutions, including a large, foldable screen. In September 2020, the next generation of the foldable Razr debuted, but then there was silence.
The new Motorola Razr is the best competitor of the Galaxy Z Flip
Now Motorola has returned to the idea and generation of a foldable smartphone signed with the Moto Razr name. This time, however, the concept changed a bit, and instead of strongly referring to the old flip phone, Motorola decided to focus on making a good “folding”.
The new Razr will not be so much based on customer sentiment, but it has a larger screen that fills almost the entire internal panel of the smartphone (with an eye for a selfie camera). The whole thing looks much better now.
Razr got a flexible P-OLED screen with a diagonal of 6.67 inches, a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pix and refreshing up to 144 Hz. In addition, on the “flap” it has a smaller auxiliary display with a diagonal of 2.7 inches and a resolution of 800 x 573 pixels. It is only used to change basic settings and read notifications.

The heart of the device is, in turn, the top, the fastest today Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor working with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128, 256 or 512 GB of data space. There are also two cameras (main 50 Mpix with optical stabilization and wide angle 13 Mpix), and the whole is powered by a 3500 mAh battery (33 W charging).

The new Razr has thus become an interesting alternative to Samsung’s foldable Z Flip smartphones, primarily the Galaxy Z Flip 4 shown this week. It should also be much more useful than Motorola’s foldable smartphones from the previous two generations.
Probably this, combined with a relatively low price (from about PLN 4050 for the cheapest version to PLN 4920 for the most expensive version) meant that so far the manufacturer does not have to complain about the lack of interest. Motorola did not wait too long with the start of sales and the first batch of 10 thousand. plays immediately in China. All copies …
There is only one catch. For now, the Razr 2022 is available only in the Middle Kingdom (Motorola Mobility belongs to the Chinese Lenovo) and the manufacturer does not reveal if and when the phone will go to other markets. The logical move will probably be to sell it also in the US and Europe, but we have to wait for details. Let the price remain at an attractive level.
