One of the gadgets that marked the early 2000s is the iconic motorola razr flip phone. Its sleek, lightweight, and compact clamshell design was considered a status symbol among the fashion-forward, and those with a hankering for the dramatic. There was something incredibly satisfying about that click you hear once you flip the phone shut. It gave your call a kind of finality that saying goodbye doesn’t always achieve.
Well, thanks to Lenovo’s new smartphone offering— the motorola razr 5G— you can experience the flip phone again. The historic “flip” design of the razr is back, and with even better features. The new hinge leaves no space in between when folded closed, making the phone as slim and compact as possible and more protected against dust and debris.
The hinge is designed to flip open with just one hand and has enough sturdiness to stay firm while open. The hinge is also built to last. If the user flips the phone 100 times a day every day, it will take more than five years to reach 200,000 flips, which is the baseline of the phone’s non-stop flip test.
While folded, users can utilize the razr 5G’s external 2.7-inch Quick View display that can now do more than just tell time and notify of incoming calls or messages. With the phone’s Android 10 OS, users can swipe up to access the home screen, right to use the camera, or left to call contacts and run apps. Off the bat, users can utilize eight apps pre-selected within the Quick View display, but Lenovo and motorola are also giving the freedom to customize and choose which app to quickly access without opening the phone. These new interactions help users make decisions more efficiently and respond faster, as they’ll spend less time scrolling and more time getting stuff done.
When it’s unfolded, users can enjoy the razr 5G’s 6.2-inch Flex View display, which is designed to protect against spills, splashes, rain, and more. The new display has a tapered chin, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and is made up of polished 3D glass that gives an eye-catching look.
The phone has a CinemaVision technology which brings in 21:9 resolution quality, the same ultra-wide dimensions used in the film industry. Users can enjoy crystal-clear photos with the razr 5G’s 48MP camera with Quad Pixel technology that captures sharp, vibrant photos, even in low-light conditions. Flipping the razr 5G closed also leads to new photo opportunities through its many camera modes.
The razr 5G comes with four antennas that allow a 5G connection that can download content in just a few seconds. Qualcomm’s brand-new Snapdragon 765 processor makes it efficient when it comes to browsing, streaming, or shopping online.
Reinventing the mid-tier phone
Motorola and Lenovo are also making 5G technology available through their mid-tier smartphone, moto g 5G plus.
This phone has a six-camera setup which content creators are sure to enjoy. At the front, there’s an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 16MP Quad Pixel camera that’s perfect for selfies taken during the day or night. Its sensor captures the smallest details and can even deliver four times better light sensitivity than other cameras. Meanwhile, the back features four cameras led by the 48MP Quad Pixel camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP camera with a macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor camera.
Both the motorola razr 5G and moto g 5G plus will be available in the Philippines in December 2020 in all major electronics stores and authorized Lenovo resellers. The motorola razr 5G can be availed for PHP 72,990, while the 8GB RAM variant of the moto g 5G plus will retail at PHP 16,990.
