Vlad, 09 September 2020

Motorola has taken the wraps off its new foldable device, the Razr 5G. As the name implies, this is the successor to last year's Razr, and while it improves on a lot of things, it's generally going in the same direction, of combining the latest foldable screen tech with a hit of nostalgia.

So it looks like a Razr, and unmistakably so. Under the hood, you get the Snapdragon 765G chipset this time around, for more performance and higher mobile data speeds. This is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

More apps now work with the external screen, such as camera, messages, calculator, Google Keep, Google News, Google Home, and YouTube. These are just the defaults, though, you can manually grant permission for any app do do its thing on that screen. This display now has support for gesture navigation too.

400 dollars more expensive than Z Flip, and much weaker...

Motorola will manufacture only few hundreds of these for their staff to be distributed free๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜. People are laughing at the price antics.

People don't care about manufacturing and engineering costs, people care about the market price, it's not competitive and that's it, a big fail just like the first one
