Motorola’s third-gen Razr foldable has finally arrived in Europe (via Android Police). The device was first released in China back in August and will cost £949 or €1,199 (about $1,080 or $1,185 USD) once it goes on sale.
Unfortunately, Motorola still hasn’t provided us with the exact European release dates in each country, but we’ll update this article if we hear back. We also don’t know when or if it will go on sale in the US.
The latest iteration of the Motorola Razr has a slightly larger 6.7-inch OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate when unfolded. It retains the same 2.7-inch FHD Plus display when closed shut, but it’s still bigger than the 1.9-inch outer screen on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, leaving room for a full-size clock and more detailed notifications.
The device also features Qualcomm’s premium Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, along with an upgraded 50-megapixel main camera and a 13-megapixel ultrawide sensor. It comes with a new Flex View mode, which lets you stand the phone up when it’s folded halfway — a feature the Galaxy Z Flip 4 also has.
Judging from the specs alone, it looks like Motorola addresses some of the initial complaints we had with its two previous versions, including an improved camera, bigger battery, and a seemingly more convenient fingerprint sensor placed on the side of the device. It has a cheaper price to rival that of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 (at least in the UK), coming in at £50 less than the £999 Z Flip 4. (The Razr’s about €90 more expensive than the €1,109 Samsung foldable in the rest of Europe.) While the 2022 Motorola Razr is currently listed on the company’s UK store, there’s no option to purchase it yet.
