Legend has it that every couple of years, Motorola presents a reissue of the Motorola Razr. The last was the Moto Razr D3 which was basically a normal Android phone and this year, now under the Lenovo brand, comes the Moto razr, a reissue more focused on the classic Razr that adds to the rows of folding devices.

It folds to be more compact

So far we have seen many concepts and end products of mobile phones. There is the Samsung Galaxy Fold , which folds inwards horizontally and the Huawei Mate X , still to come and that also folds horizontally, but outward. Add some loose concepts of Xiaomi and company with more than one hinge to the mix and we have the whole picture with one thing in common: they occupy the size of a normal mobile when folded and unfold to make the screen bigger .


Here is the main difference with the Motorola razr of 2019. It is not a mobile that becomes a tablet, but a mobile that is compacted to be smaller . The usefulness or not of this compaction is already a matter of preferences and fashions, although it will undoubtedly be a great experience for the nostalgic of "shell" mobile designs. Thus, it has dimensions of 172 x 72 x 6.9 mm. open and 94 x 72 x 14 mm closed. The weight, 205 grams.

Two screens, two cameras

The main reason for this year's Motorola reason is that it can become a compact mobile that fits in the palm of the hand, bending in half. So you can continue to see notifications, the solution is the same now as in the Razr of yesteryear, an additional screen .


The Motorola razr therefore has two screens. The main one, flexible pOLED, is 6.2 inches with HD + resolution (2142 x 876 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 21: 9. When you "close" the phone, it folds approximately in half. By the way, that screen has a small notch for the front camera, whose specifications we will see later.


The second screen, which is located on the back while using the mobile normally, receives the official name of Quick View and its main function is to receive notifications, time and time, to know if you have something pending that justifies “opening” the mobile . It is a screen of 4: 3, gOLED of 2.7 inches and with resolution 800 x 600 .


As for the cameras, the Motorola razr mounts one on each side. The main camera is 16 megapixels with f / 1.7 aperture, while the selfies are in charge of the 5 megapixel camera with f / 2.0 aperture. It is a single lens, but the razr makes use of AI to create portraits with blurred background and snapshots with poor lighting.

The mid-range folding

As for the rest of the specifications, the processor chosen for this renovation is Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 , which is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, this being the only version available.


The battery on the other hand is 2,510 mAh , which is not a great capacity in itself, but it will be necessary to see how much it manages to stretch the autonomy. A good detail is that it includes fast charging of 15W via USB-C. In terms of connectivity, the expected: Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and eSIM, although without FM Radio. It launches with Android Pie.
