Motorola Razr 5G: 5 things we love
October 26, 2020

Distinctive. Individual. Future-proof. In the 5G era, the Motorola Razr 5G is a true reinvention of an iconic smartphone. Right from an incredibly intuitive secondary display that allows you to do almost everything without even having to open the phone, to the world’s most advanced selfie camera and 5G-enabled pocketability, the Razr 5G is a truly disruptive next generation clamshell foldable smartphone.

There’s tons to love here, but here are 5 things we at T3 Middle East absolutely love about the Razr 5G.

Sauvé Design

Stylishly pocketable, Motorola’s unique hinge design offers the only zero gap closure on a contemporary foldable smartphone, enabling easy single-hand flipping, protecting the internal display and keeping the Razr ultra-compact. Polished 3D glass with 7000 series aluminium gives a distinguished, eye-catching look to the Razr 5G. In hand with the brilliant polished graphite finish, a tapered chin and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, easy, one-handed multi-tasking is the promise.

Quick View Display

The Razr 5G’s 2.7” Quick View Display is all about staying connected to what matters with fewer distractions. With the Quick View display, you can do almost everything without having to open the phone, right from viewing notifications, making calls, taking selfies, replying to messages with speech-to-text, connecting to Google Assistant and playing songs to getting directions. This extends to your social media persona as well, for the 48MP camera with Quad Pixel technology also doubles as the most advanced selfie camera on the market through the Quick View display, capturing vibrant, peppy images. Add to that a ton of Dual Display-enabled camera features like Camera Cartoon which maintains the subject’s focus by showing a fun animation on the Quick View display while the camera app is open on the main Flex View display, Instant Review  and External Preview, and Moto has put control into user’s hands. You can open any downloaded app right on the Quick View display without opening the phone.

The Power of 5G

Motorola broke new ground releasing a 5G capable device, and the Razr 5G continues in that pioneering path, as a global 5G ready device with support for over 300 5G NDMC bands that support 5G in over 25 markets. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, the Razr 5G also supports carrier aggregation (3X20 CA – 60Mhz) and 4X4 MIMO for blazing fast 5G performance. Motorola’s innovative new battery ensures that customers can go all day without recharging while meeting using the power of 5G.

The Click Factor

Open or closed, the Motorola Razr 5G is set to create a big impression, with dynamic and vibrant photos easily even when the phone is closed. For the Razr 5G comes with a 48MP dual camera with Quad Pixel technology that provides 4x the low light sensitivity. The folding phone also comes with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and a large f/1.7 aperture to compensate against blurred images and videos, ensuring clarity and detail shine through. The 48MP Dual use Camera (rear camera when open, selfie camera when closed) is the world’s most advanced selfie camera, a perfectly pocketable accessory for social media. The Flex View Display and internal 20MP camera are also perfect for the remote working age, offering high-quality immersive video call experience that will help consumers feel even more connected to the people that matter most to them.


Motorola’s priority on bringing the best software experiences possible to consumers and building on Android with unique ways to enhance customers’ mobile experience, comes shining through with My UX. My UX includes all the great experiences customers have come to know and love, as well as a variety of new features, that take music, videos and games to the next level with custom settings and advanced controls. Not just that, you can customize the Quick View display experience, creating your own device themes by choosing from unique fonts, colors, and icon shapes, ensuring your Razr 5G is one in a million.

The Motorola Razr 5G is now available in the UAE in Graphite Black for AED 5,499 at leading retailers.
