Announcement. Motorola RAZR 5G - a clamshell smartphone for one hundred thousand. Minimum

And here it is, the second generation of Motorola's clamshell smartphone. Officially called Motorola RAZR 5G. But it can also be called RAZR 2, RAZR 2020, RAZR Gen.2, etc ...

The official US price is $ 1399.99 (₽106,000), which is even slightly more than our hundred thousand, as you can see. In Europe, they talk about € 1499 (₽134000, $ 1760). A little expensive for a smartphone, which, by and large, cannot be called a flagship. But fashion ... With a flexible screen ...

Compared to last year's Motorola RAZR2019, then the smartphone, of course, prettier. The hardware is more powerful, the batteries are bigger, the memory is filled up, support for 5G networks has been added, the cameras have got additional megapixels. But the fact remains. If you look at the characteristics, we are still facing a device of no more than an average level. The only feature of which is the screens. Flexible main plus small auxiliary auxiliary.

The main screen has a diagonal of 6.2 ″. The matrix is ​​officially called P-OLED (Plastic OLED). The resolution is decent, but a little non-standard - 876 × 2142 (373 ppi). The screen can bend. Motorola swears by its mother that they have modified the hinge to such an extent that anything can break, but not it. How the fold will look like - we are waiting for reviews and reviews. The first preliminary reviews, by the way, have already appeared. Unfortunately, so far only in English. As usual, we collect them, go to the device page on our website.

The additional screen is also OLED. Small, 2.7 ″ touchscreen. Resolution 600 × 800 (370 ppi).

Qualcomm Snapdragon was chosen as the processor765G. Good average or even slightly higher. In the region of three hundred thousand AnTuTu points. But so that you understand the level. On this chipset, in particular, the Realme X50 5G China smartphone is made, which is quietly sold on Aliexpress at a price of $ 229 (₽17,600) including free shipping. Compare with the cost of the RAZR.

Memory. 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of constant. There is no memory card support.

The battery has grown a little compared to the first generation. Now its capacity is already 2800 mAh! Khlipenko? Not without that ... But it charges pretty quickly - 15-watt charging is supported.

Cameras are still single, but now moreserious. 20 MP front, 48 MP rear (f / 1.7, OIS, Samsung GM1 sensor). The question is what about the optics, of course. Still, you can expect decent quality pictures.

What else. You can't call it a fluff, 192 grams. There is NFC, the fingerprint scanner was sent to the back surface. No, a curious smartphone, very much. And we can even say that it is well balanced. But it's expensive, it hurts too expensive.
