• Motorola releases new 5G Razr

    Date:10 September 2020 Author: Leila Stein

    After the success of its first Razr reboot last year, Motorola have released the updated version, now with 5G.

    The update doesn’t go much further than that with this second generation foldable phone. It’s still 6.2 inches and folds into a square. One update is the improved usability of the exterior screen.

    The cameras also got an upgrade, making them more in-line with those of other high-end competitors. The front-facing camera boasts and impressive 20 megapixels and there is a more sophisticated 12-megapixel main shooter at the back.

    The processor has also received a bump, with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765G processor installed in these phones.

    Much like the newly released Samsung Galaxy Flip 5G, the price isn’t for the faint of heart. Only released in dollars so far, the new Razr costs $1,399 (around R23,000).

    However, as South Africa often has even higher prices than a straight conversion, if the Razr becomes available in the country it could go for an even higher price. Since Motorola doesn’t stock in South Africa, it is likely that those who want it will have to import it.

    Currently, the first-generation costs R31,199 on special import.
