Lenovo-owned mobile technology veteran Motorola has decided to once again slice into the foldable phone market with a new version of the once iconic Razr flip-phone, which has all the hallmarks of a tastier, cheaper option than the Galaxy Z Flip4 announced yesterday but is so far only launched in China.
The stylish flipper comes with a Samsung-matching 6.7-inch OLED main display but a Samsung-beating 144-Hz refresh rate. The handset boasts support for HDR10+ dynamic content, the onscreen image can be split into two display areas across the fold, and there's a 32-megapixel selfiecam hole-punched in there too. The Quick View cover screen is the same size as before, at 2.7-inches, but that's quite an improvement on Samsung's Flip4 1.9-inch effort, and there are numerous widgets, backgrounds and watch faces to choose from. Unlike previous Razr designs, the 2022 model doesn't sport a chin on the lower wing, so it's pretty much all screen when unfolded. It's also reported to benefit from an improved hinge for a gapless fold, and has the ability to stand partially opened in the hand or on a flat surface.

Inside, the new Razr is powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile chipset, with up to 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage on offer. Where the Razr2 only had a single camera to the rear, the 2022 model sports a dual camera array comprising a 50-MP main with a 1/1.55-inch sensor and optical image stabilization, plus a 13-MP ultra-wide. It also rocks twin speakers with support for Dolby Atmos audio. And that's about all we can tell you for now. Prices at launch earlier today started at CNY 5,999, which converts to around US$890 – though that's unlikely to be what it will cost if or when it reaches the US (given that the second generation initially came in at $1,399.99).
