Motorola, a once dominant brand in the world of mobile phones, is returning to the spotlight with two new foldable smartphones: the Razr 40 and the Razr 40 Ultra. These innovative devices could well rival Samsung's offerings in the foldable smartphone space.
Design and construction
Motorola's foldable smartphones are named Razr, in reference to their iconic smartphones of yesteryear. With the Razr 40 and Razr 40 Ultra, Motorola seems to have taken an important step in the design of foldable smartphones. These devices are refined, attractive and, for the first time, truly inspiring.
The Razr 40 Ultra, for example, stands out with its 3.6-inch external display, which is beautiful and designed to attract attention. This screen is larger than what Samsung offers on its foldable devices, and it's also Full HD, with a 144Hz refresh rate. While this high refresh rate may seem unnecessary on such a small screen, it helps for a smooth and pleasant user experience.
The Razr 40 Ultra is equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Plus GN1 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the side and a 3800 mAh battery. Although these specifications are not the most impressive on the market, they are enough to provide a smooth and responsive user experience.
Coming to the cameras, the Razr 40 Ultra is equipped with a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. The selfie sensor is 32 megapixels. While these specs aren't on par with the high-quality cameras found on other high-end smartphones, they are enough to take good quality photos in most situations.
The Razr 40Ultra retails for $1,200, putting it in the same price range as Samsung's offerings. However, the Razr 40, with a slightly smaller screen and slightly lower technical specifications, is sold at the more affordable price of 900 euros. This is the first time that a foldable smartphone has been available in France at a price below 1,000 euros, which is excellent news for those interested in this type of device.
Motorola's new foldable smartphones, the Razr 40 and Razr 40 Ultra, are interesting devices that could well rival Samsung's offerings. They offer an attractive design, solid technical specifications and an affordable price, especially for the Razr 40. If you are in the market for a new foldable smartphone, these devices are definitely worth your attention.
