Moto Razr 5G will likely have a familiar similar design and a Snapdragon 765G

The Moto Razr seems to have quickly fallen out of the public consciousness, partially because there are more important events happening right now than ultra-premium phone releases, and partially because the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold2 have received more attention lately. Much like Samsung did with the Z Flip, Motorola is now prepping a minor upgrade for the Razr with 5G support in tow.

Moto’s second foldable Razr could be all about minor upgrades, 5G, and new cameras

Motorola was right on the verge of turning irrelevant in the premium smartphone segment when it decided to bounce back with a modern-day flip phone. The new Moto Razr managed to get people interested by striking a nostalgic chord, even if hardware like a Snapdragon 700-series chip kept power users wanting more. As thoughts turn to a follow-up Razr, a new report talks about possible iterative upgrades for its camera and battery, and an official source helps us narrow down the launch time frame.

Motorola's $1,500 Razr is only now getting Android 10

Motorola's $1,500 Razr is only now getting Android 10

Motorola used to be almost unrivaled for quick updates while under Google's guardianship, but that hasn't been true for many years now. These days, it usually provides just one update, but that would have been a bit unreasonable for a $1,500 device. The company today announced that its Razr foldable phone is getting the Android 10 update starting today, with a second Android 11 update also confirmed down the line.

When it comes to flip phones with folding displays, the Galaxy Z Flip might be a snazzy little number, but some people still prefer the Moto razr. Sure, it has its shortfalls, but if you're all about the form factor above everything else, then you probably might want to grab two of them for the price of one while supplies last at Motorola.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip vs Motorola Razr: What's different between these two clamshell foldables?

Following a decade of seeing black, rectangular glass slabs grow in size while swapping their backs between metal and glass, foldables are taking over to become the face of phone fetish. The nostalgia-invoking Motorola Razr went on sale not too long ago and was closely followed by Samsung’s clamshell Galaxy Z Flip. With the two foldables officially out now, it’s time to revisit this comparison to find out which one deserves your dough.

Just a day before photos of the gold Moto Razr leaked for all to see, a YouTuber was busy tearing a black version of the coveted phone to pieces. The much-anticipated second coming of the Moto Razr isn't even on the market yet, but that hasn't stopped the folks over at PBKreviews from cracking it open to see all the goodies tucked inside.

Motorola Razr meets pocket sand in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Motorola Razr meets pocket sand in JerryRigEverything's durability test

Foldable phones, at least for the moment, are significantly more fragile than more common types of smartphones. The screens are plastic to allow folding, not glass, and the gap between the screen and phone body can allow dirt to get inside — something Samsung learned very quickly with the first batch of Galaxy Folds. We already have a general idea of how durable the Motorola Razr is, but now Zack from JerryRigEverything has given us a better picture.

Motorola Razr 'breaks' after just 27,000 folds in CNet's testing video (Update: Motorola's statement)

The long-term durability of folding phones remains in question following the original Galaxy Fold's issues. Last year SquareTrade put the redesigned version of that phone to the test, with CNet later live-streaming 100,000 automated "folds" without damaging the device. This time it's the new Motorola Razr facing scrutiny, and CNet is again live-streaming its attempts to wear the folding mechanism down.

Motorola Razr leaks in gold as nostalgia intensifies

Motorola Razr leaks in gold as nostalgia intensifies

The popularity of Motorola's folding Razr smartphone with its flexible display relies heavily on the nostalgia it induces in those old enough to remember the original, and that's set to increase with an upcoming release of a gold color option. Evan Blass shared images of the new hue on Twitter, but there's no word on when we can expect it to become available.
