In 2004 one of Motorola's most emblematic phones was made official, which was the Razr V3, a folding terminal that barely had a 2.2-inch TFT color screen, a T9 keyboard and the particular folding design that you surely already know. comes to mind.
To continue with the line of succession -or to renew it, rather- the company has released the new Razr, a mid-range smartphone that preserves the essence of the Razr V3, but which is presented as an attractive purchase option today because it is the new competitor that comes to face the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, because It also has a flexible display. This has already been announced and the characteristics and specifications of which it presumes are expanded below.
Everything about the new Motorola Razr
As we were saying, the Moto Razr V3 from 2004 was offered with a 2.2-inch diagonal screen. Well, here we find one of the biggest differences of this old model with the Motorola Razr of 2019, which is what we are talking about, of course. This one has a panel almost three times the size of its ancestor; 6.2-inch, to be exact. The technology of this is pOLED and the resolution it is capable of producing is 2,142 x 876 pixels, which means that the screen-to-body ratio is 21: 9 (Cinemavision format).
Unlike the Galaxy Fold and Mate X, this new mobile brings an aesthetic and a flexible screen quite different from these, more than anything because it is especially elongated, which makes us practically face a terminal similar to the newly named Razr V3 when it is folded. Another feature of the panel that makes it more unique is its elongated notch and the slight curvatures of its upper and lower ends.
Continuing with the theme of the screen, it should be mentioned that there is another secondary that comes out more when it is folded. It is used to show notifications and execute more limited actions and tasks, but it still has various utilities. The size of it is small, as expected: it remains at 2.7 inches and its resolution is 600 x 800 pixels (4: 3), while it is gOLED technology.
The Snapdragon 710 is the SoC chosen to power the smartphone. This powerful chipset is mid-range and can achieve a maximum clock speed of 2.2 GHz, in addition to having eight cores and being paired with an Adreno 616 GPU. It is also supported by a 6 GB RAM memory and a space of 128 GB internal storage. The battery that makes all these parts and components move correctly is 2,510 mAh of capacity, a figure that seems to fall short today, taking into account that the standard that new smartphones follow is to be complemented by a battery of 4,000 mAh. However, 15-watt fast charge is available which ensures it charges in about an hour. from empty to full.
Regarding the photographic section, it should be mentioned that In the back Only a 16 MP resolution camera sensor is available. This one features an f / 1.7 aperture, Dual Pixel technology and autofocus laser and a dual LED flash. The front camera is 5 MP and has f / 2.0 aperture.
Other features include support for eSIM, 4G LTE connectivity, a USB-C, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac and the factory-installed Android Pie OS. Unfolded measures 72 x 172 x 6.9 mm, while folded measures 72 x 94 x 14 mm. The weight of the phone is 205 grams. Keep in mind that it does not have a 3.5mm jack headphone port, which many will regret.
