Motorola’s new product launch conference was canceled for some reasons. Instead of August 3, it will take place on August 11. As you know, at the event, we will see two new flagships – Moto Razr 2022 and Moto X30 Pro. Both will come with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, but this not going to be the biggest highlight of any of them. The former one is the company’s new clamshell smartphone, while the latter is the world’s first handset to sport a 200MP camera.
Today, we learned about new features of the folding screen handset of Motorola. It turns out the Moto Razr 2022 will support hovering. From the poster, we can see that it has a tripod mode. So it can be placed on the table in a semi-folded and hovering state. It also supports gesture self-timer and time-lapse photography. These functions allow users to fully free their hands.
In addition, the UI of the Moto Razr 2022 camera has also been adapted to the tripod mode. The upper half of the screen displays the captured image, while the lower half displays the camera operation page.
The tripod mode is very convenient in daily use. It is up to you to decide how much you want to open it, giving users a different shooting and viewing experience. However, this design is a great challenge to the hinge.
In this regard, we know that the Moto Razr 2022 has fully upgraded the hinge, using the third-generation star orbiting shaft. It includes 122 ultra-miniature high-strength custom parts, made of a variety of aerospace-grade materials, and its processing accuracy is 0.01mm.
Moto Razr 2022 Screens
Also, we should pay attention to the screens of this clamshell smartphone. We mean they are upgraded as well. For instance, the inner screen is 6.7 inches which are identical to the size and proportion of the iPhone 13 Pro Max. It supports up to 144Hz refresh rate, 1 billion color display, DC dimming, dual SGS low blue light / low smear certification, and also supports HDR10+. Thus, it’s not only a top-level screen but it’s also a folding screen.
In terms of screen form, it adopts a punch-hole in the upper middle part. The upper and lower sides seem to have some curvature.
As for the external screen, it is a 2.7-inch horizontal screen with 9 independent panels for weather, travel, express delivery, calendar, commute advice, AI health, contacts, camera, and dial. However, you can customize the external screen.
