Motorola Razr 2020 Release date

Well, after a lot of rumors and leaks, the highly-anticipated day has come and Motorola has finally announced the gorgeous Moto Razr. Now, the Razr 2020 is finally joining the foldable crowd and will be available for purchase sometime this fall! We still don’t have an exact release date, but once we do, we’ll make sure to update you on it!

Motorola Razr 2020 Price

Razr’s price of $1,399 confirms Motorola’s ambitions to shoot for the premium smartphone market, although, luckily this price is lower than what we expected earlier.

Motorola Razr 2020 Specs

Okay, let’s jump straight into one of the most interesting aspects of the new Moto Razr 5G. We see a considerable upgrade in the specs department compared to last year’s Razr. Here is a glance at the official Moto Razr 2020 specifications sheet:

  • Display: 6.7 inches main; external: 2.7 inches
  • Camera: Main 48MP with OIS, laser autofocus; Front 20 MP
  • Hardware: Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, 8GB of RAM
  • Storage: 265GB, not expandable
  • Battery: 2,800mAh, 15W TurboPower charging
  • OS: Android 10, Motorola My UX (personalization, Moto Display, Moto Actions, Moto Gametime, Moto Audio)

Motorola Razr 2020 Design

Motorola has carefully refined last year’s Razr design to a very good-looking, sleek, and slim clamshell foldable phone for its 2020 iteration. Razr’s main 6.2-inch display is surrounded by thin bezels from both sides, while the chin is significantly reduced in comparison to last year’s model. Motorola has also enhanced the hinge, making Razr more comfortable for one-handed usage. The fingerprint sensor is located on the device’s glass back, elegantly hidden beneath the Motorola logo. The Razr 2020 comes in three colors: Polished Graphite, Liquid Mercury, and Blush Gold.

What’s great about this foldable is that Motorola seems to have nailed the compact form factor. Closed, the Razr is only 2.85 x 3.61 x 0.62 inches (72.6 x 91.7 x 16mm) in size, thinner and overall smaller than Samsung’s own clamshell foldable, the Z Flip. Razr weighs 6.77 ounces (192g): although it shaved off some weight in comparison to last year’s Razr, it is still on the heavier side.

Additionally, Razr’s hinge is now more durable, according to Motorola. At the same time, it provides a zero-gap closure that should offer more protection to the device’s screen from dust and other small particle damage.

Motorola Razr 2020 Display

The foldable has the same main display size as its previous iteration, despite rumors hinting at a bigger main display. The external display is also the same size as last year; however, it now packs some cool new features. For example, it gives you easy access to your favorite apps, updated gesture navigation that mimics the gestures of Android 10, speech-to-text, smart reply, and a full keyboard in case you need it.

Motorola states they have listened to their users’ concerns over spending too much time on their phones. Now, users can limit the scrolling at times they want to be distraction-free, thanks to the improved Quick View display, showing the most important information at a glance. What’s more, the control is in your hands: you can decide which apps you want on the external display.

Motorola Razr 2020 Camera

Motorola has also given some love to Razr’s camera system with a big improvement over last year’s Razr. This time around, Razr is equipped with a 48 MP camera with quad-pixel binning technology, complemented by laser autofocus and Optical Image Stabilization. Similar to other foldable phones, the main camera can double as a selfie shooter, so you can achieve great quality selfies.

Speaking of selfies, Motorola has added some software tweaks to make the selfie experience more fun. You get things like Group Mode, Portrait Mode, and Spot Color. Razr also has an internal 20 MP camera that can be useful for video calls.

Another cool feature that you can have with Razr 2020 is the External Preview for photos, which allows both the photographer and the model to visualize how the photo will turn out.

Motorola Razr 2020 Processor and Memory

The Moto Razr 2020 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor. The fast mid-range processor supports 5G (in areas where 5G network is available), while also being great for gaming. The memory has also been upgraded over Razr 2019 ‒ the new Razr comes with 8GB of RAM and 265GB of non-expandable storage.

Motorola Razr 2020 Battery life

We wanted to see some improvement in the battery department and Motorola delivered. It equipped Razr with a battery cell of 2,800mAh. Although this battery is quite small by today’s standards, Motorola claims it can keep the lights on for a full day. Whether this claim is true, we have to see for ourselves: stay tuned for our battery test results, coming soon.

The 15W TurboPower charger, included in Moto Razr’s box, should top up the not-so-enormous battery quite quickly.

We have tested the Moto Razr 2020's battery life against those of its competitors: although it's not excellent compared to many other phones, it's quite decent:
