Minimal Meets Maximal in the New Razr


Motorola invites you to experience style-driven innovation that fundamentally changes the way you interact with your phone and the world around you. Meet the new razrTM with 5G, a new kind of fashion symbol designed to turn heads with an iconic look and embrace the full potential of the foldable form factor to deliver unmatched compact capability for a next-gen mobile experience.

Developed with direct consumer feedback as its driving principle, razr boasts an external Quick View display enhanced with new software experiences. No other foldable on the market offers pocketability while also letting you send messages, make video calls, and easily access your favorite apps with the phone still closed. Plus, experience the latest 5G speed, and the most advanced selfie camera ever,1 all in a one-of-a-kind flip design. Razr is pocketable yet powerful, minimal yet maximal.

everything at a glance with the Quick View display

We’ve heard from consumers that they feel tethered to their devices and want a way to stay connected while still living in the moment. Our totally unique dual-screen design delivers an experience that addresses this specific pain point, performing unlike any other foldable on the market.

The Quick View display delivers tools, information and actions in a simple, intuitive way that makes it easier to make decisions and spend less time scrolling aimlessly.

  • Updated gesture navigation allows you to access your favorite features more easily than ever. The Quick View display now features a navigation bar at the bottom that mimics the gestures of Android 10, so you can easily reach the home screen with just a swipe up. You can also swipe right from the home screen to quickly access the camera, or swipe left to access the new app tray. Swipe left again to access shortcuts to call or text your favorite contacts.
  • Keep in touch by replying to messages with speech-to-text, smart reply, or type a longer message on the Quick View’s full keyboard.
  • You can access turn-by-turn navigation from Google Maps notifications and your favorite music apps like Spotify, YouTube Music, and Pandora.
  • Plus, NFC technology enables Google Pay in stores around the globe and allows you to share content like contacts, pictures, and videos with other devices wirelessly.

We’ve put control directly into users’ hands to customize their Quick View display experience with the themes and apps they love. We preselected eight applications to house within the app panel that work well with the Quick View display: camera, messages, calculator, Keep, Google News, Google Home & YouTube. However, we’ve given users the ability to grant permission for any app to run on the Quick View display, so they can choose which are most important to access quickly without opening the phone.

infinitely capable, perfectly pocketable

The newest iteration of razr’s design exhibits simplicity on the outside but hides precision and ingenuity on the inside. A tapered chin, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and updated hinge offer aesthetic and functional changes based on direct consumer feedback for an easy, one-handed experience with razr. Polished 3D glass with 7000 series aluminum gives a distinguished, eye-catching look in three timeless and refined colors – Polished Graphite, Liquid Mercury, and Blush Gold.

Flip open razr and reveal its 6.2 inch Flex View Display. When holding the new razr open horizontally, the 21:9 CinemaVision aspect ratio draws you in with the same ultra-wide dimensions used by the film industry. When held vertically, the narrow design means it’s easy to use with just one hand.

The display works in harmony with our unique hinge design, offering the only zero gap closure on a foldable device that protects the internal display and keeps razr ultra-compact. We collected feedback from razr owners and put our dynamic folding system to the test with rigorous flip cycling, drop, temperature and other stress-testing to ensure longevity and reliability. We found an average user flips razr 40 times per day, while power users flips razr 100 times a day. Our flip cycling test showed razr is designed to withstand up to 200,000 flips, meaning it would take a power user over 5 years to reach that level of use.2 Plus, a custom protective coating protects against scratches, while a water repellent barrier on the inside of the devices safeguards against spills, splashes, rain and more.3

really flipping fast 5G

With the new razr, we rose to the challenge to fit more cutting-edge technology into an even sleeker form factor. With 5G networks rapidly expanding around the world, the 5G edition of razr has you covered now and for the future.4 The updated chin design reduces the device size while also enabling 5G performance by housing two of the four 5G antennas. All this is powered by a robust Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 765G processor.

Even power-hungry 5G has met its match with our new battery. With the new razr, you can go all day without recharging.5 Despite the added complexity of 5G and a larger battery, the next generation maintains the slim, cohesive design our consumers and industry experts love.

incredible quality photos, stunning selfies even in low light

Open or closed, this device’s camera system delivers a big impact in a small package. Capture sharp, vibrant photos on the 48MP camera6 with Quad Pixel technology that provides 4x the low light sensitivity. Optical image stabilization compensates against blurred images and videos so clarity and detail shine through no matter what the lighting looks like. Plus, laser autofocus technology in the time of flight sensor helps the camera quickly focus on your subject. It’s ultra-fast and super accurate, so you never miss a shot.

The 48MP camera system6 also doubles as the most advanced selfie camera on the market when the phone is closed.1 Selfies get a creative boost with camera modes like Group Selfie, Portrait Mode, Spot Color, and more. Plus, the dual displays enable a few cool camera features that are simply impossible on other devices. Camera Cartoon helps maintain the subject’s focus by showing a fun animation on the Quick View display while the camera app is open on the main Flex View display. Instant Review shows a preview of your photo on the Quick View display after capture, and External Preview mirrors the viewfinder on the Quick View display so that your subjects can see the photo before it’s captured.

Of course, we also have you covered for when you want a more immersive, full-screen experience with your selfies. The Flex View Display and internal 20MP camera comes in handy for video calls, offering a high-quality immersive experience that will help you feel even more connected to the people that matter.
