Motorola Razr 5G: Specifications and Features
The Motorola Razr 5G is a vertically folding phone with an inner display of 6.2-inches and an outer display of 2.7-inches. The 6.2-inch CinemaVision screen has an aspect ratio of 21:9 and it is an OLED panel. When held vertically, the narrow design means it’s easy to use with just one hand.

On the hardware front, the Motorola Razr 5G offers Snapdragon 765G SoC, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. The phone has a 48MP primary shooter with quad-pixel technology; It seems like Motorola is using Samsung’s 48MP sensor on the Razr 5G and the phone also has Optical Image Stabilisation support. The 48MP camera system also doubles as the selfie camera when the phone is closed. Additionally, Motorola has also added a 20MP camera which comes in handy for video calls when the phone is not folded.
