It is good to hear that it won't be a Verizon exclusive this time around, though.
In the U.S. it will be offered unlocked at Best Buy, B&H, Amazon, and Motorola's online store for $1,399. It will cost $1,399, unlocked. Mind you, it's still not a flagship phone, and at $1,400 we're not sure it's a great deal either. Curiously, it carries a price tag of 12,499 yuan (~$1830) which is higher than the $1,399 price tag in the US. So, take this information with a grain of salt, as per usual.
With the above specs in black and white, I will now highlight the similarities and differences between the Razr 2019 and the new 5G model. The phone is exactly what we expected, as not only its design leaked, but its specifications, in great detail.
Motorola says the phone is designed for 200,000 flips.
The new Motorola Razr follows up the version released in February with a number of improvements and additions.
The new Razr will come powered by a modern Snapdragon 765G chipset, that provides for the 5G connectivity, which is a definite upgrade when compared to the Snapdragon 710 in its predecessor, but still remains a disappointment. The phone also comes with two OLED displays. While the outer or the secondary display is 2.7-inch gOLED with 800×600 pixels of resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. It arrives paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage as standard, although other storage configurations could be created.
The foldable smartphone packs a 2,800mAh battery and charges via a 15W charger that comes inside the box. The Razr 5G does support a physical SIM card and eSIM, though. The G9 Plus will apparently feature a quad-camera setup on the back involving a 64-megapixel primary camera alongside different sensors including the primary and depth sensor. There's also a 20 MP selfie camera available when the phone is open and unfolded.
It is worth noting that this phone will also become available in Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific, in selected countries.
