Moto Razr features and specifications
In terms of specifications, the Motorola phone has two screens. The outer one is a small 2.7-inch Quick View panel while the inner one is a 6.2-inch OLED screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio. There are two cameras as well. One 16-megapixel sensor placed above the Quick View screen while the other 5-megapixel sensor is inside a notch on the bigger display. The processor used is a Snapdragon 710 SoC, which is perhaps the most underwhelming aspect of the expensive phone.
The Moto Razr measures 72 x 172 x 6.9mm in dimensions when unfolded. When folded, these figures are 72 x 94 x 14mm. The phone weighs about 205 grams. It’s available in a single Noir Black color variant. The phone houses a 2,510mAh battery with 15W fast charging. Also, the handset supports e-SIM only. The Moto Razr is supposed to feature a zero-gap hinge that doesn’t leave any gap when the device is folded in half.
