While Samsung has almost the folding smartphone segment in its belt, Motorola is there with the Motorola RAZR 5G trying to capture a good segment of the market thanks to its nostalgic appeal. The device arrived in China a few weeks ago and during and ended just two minutes after sales started. Motorola is eager for the new device to be successful and is working on a promotional campaign for a new special edition device in partnership with Montblanc.
For those who do not know, Montblanc is a good German luxury manufacturer. The Hamburg-based company manufactures various products, such as watches, beats, headphones, etc. from a retail box. The package is large and features the Motorola and Montblanc logos. The specifications of this phone may not differ much from the original version. However, we expect it to have a special design with the Montblanc logos here and there, special wallpaper and some luxury accessories that come in the retail box.
Motorola RAZR 5G specifications
The original handset sells for around 12,499 CNY (~ $ 1830) and we know it is quite an expensive device. Especially for the specifications, brings to the table. First of all, it works with a 5G mid-range chipset, the premium favorite Snapdragon 765G SoC mid-range. Processing power is combined with up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.
The foldable headset features a 6.2-inch internal flexible AMOLED panel with an unusual resolution of 2,142 x 876 pixels. The external display has a diagonal of 2.7 inches and serves as a viewfinder for some applications or captures selfies. In terms of optics, the handset carries a powerful 48MP sensor with f / 1.7 aperture. Combines with a 20MP f / 2.2 selfie camera located above the main screen.
The biggest drawback of this phone comes from a mediocre battery life provided by the 2,800 mAh power cell. Motorola could not find a way to equip a suitable battery in this phone, such as the Z Fold 2 and Z Flip. At the very least, it comes with fast charging support. Other features include NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and Android 10 OS.
Once the RAZR is already an expensive phone, we expect the special edition to only reach higher. You can wait at least twice the original price.
