Earlier today, Motorola launched its third-gen clamshell smartphone, namely the Moto Razr 2022. In fact, Moto fans should like the phone. But for an average user, it causes double feelings. Of course, the company has made many improvements, especially referring to the display, cameras, and chipset. But these days, when Samsung launched its Fold 3, we think Moto falls behind.
The phone sports a 6.7-inch screen. Thus, there are no changes in comparison to the previous model. However, this is not bad news. We mean though the screen size remains unchanged, the phone now uses a new OLED panel, which has a better hinge that bends in a pear shape to close completely when folded. This display also supports HDR10+ as well as a 144Hz refresh rate. Instead of a notch design, this model comes with a punch-hole design, which hosts 32MP front-facing camera.
The external screen is 2.7 inches in size and used the OLED material as well. However, this is identical to what we’ve seen in the previous generation.
There are two cameras on the back. One of the is a 50MP 1/1.55″ sensor supporting OIS. By the way, this is the same CMOS found on the Edge 30 Pro and S30 Pro. The secondary camera has a 13MP resolution, and this ultrawide-angle lens has a 121 degrees FOV.
Unlike the previous two Moto Razr phones, the Moto Razr 2022 now comes with the most powerful chip in the Android camp dubbed the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
As for other specs, we can mention RAW shooting, MyUI 4.0, two speakers with Dolby Atmos support, and proper DC dimming.
The phone is already available for booking. However, only the black cover is in pre-sale. The 8+128GB variant costs CNY5,999 ($890), the 8/256 GB model is available for CNY6,499 ($965), and the 12/512GB version is CNY7,299 ($1,085).
