Motorola RAZR 2020 Design, Display, and Camera
The design of the new Motorola RAZR is somewhat sleeker than that of the one released months ago. It sports a 6.2-inch POLED display and a 2.7-inch external cover display. According to Motorola, the new hinge design can withstand up to 200,000 folds and unfolds. In terms of camera, it comes with a 48MP camera system with faster autofocus and improved low-light shots. Inside the device is a 20MP camera.
Motorola RAZR 2020 Chipset and Price
One of the most notable upgrades in the new RAZR is the support for 5G networks. It achieves this using the Snapdragon 765G chipset, the same chip used in the Motorola Edge and the LG Q92. A lot of people expected the phone to launch with the flagship Snapdragon 865 chip instead, considering its price tag of $1,400. The phone comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.
Motorola RAZR 2020 Water Resistance
The new Motorola RAZR may not be totally water-resistant. In fact, it does not come with an official IP water-resistance rating. This is probably due to its hinge and foldable nature. However, to prevent damage from light water exposure, Motorola added a water-repellent coating inside and out.
Motorola RAZR 2020 Battery
The phone is powered by a 2,800mAh battery. This is an improvement over the older RAZR’s 2,510mAh battery, but we will have to see if that is good enough for the 5G support. It comes with a 15w charger. The company claims that it is an “all-day” battery. In due course, we will find out if that is indeed true.
The Motorola RAZR 2020 will be available in the fall. Will you be willing to shell out $1,400 for this phone? Do let us know in the Comments section below.
