Motorola Razr Series 2024: Everything you need to know

Motorola Razr AM AH 01

On June 25, 2024, Motorola announced the Razr and Razr+ in the US (Razr 50 and Razr 50 Ultra in the rest of the world). This is the fifth-generation of Motorola’s fifth-generation flip-style foldable, which brought back the iconic “Razr” name that was synonymous in the early 2000s.

Both new Razr models offer up incredibly larger displays than their predecessors, with the Razr+ offering up the largest external display currently on a flip phone. That is pretty incredible, considering how large some of the competitors are going these days. Like the Galaxy Z Flip 5 and the OPPO Find N3 Flip.

How much does the Razr 2024 cost?

Motorola Razr AM AH 77

The Motorola Razr comes in three colors, while the Razr+ comes in four colors. Motorola is one of the few smartphone makers that offer its phones plenty of fun colors.

Motorola’s Razr (also known as the Razr 50 outside of the US) will be available in Beach Sand, Coala Gray, and Spritz Orange colors. The Motorola Razr+ (the Razr 50 Ultra outside of the US) comes in Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Peach Fuzz, and the iconic Razr hot pink color.

These are all going to be vegan leather backs, except for the Coala Gray and the Midnight Blue, which are vegan suede. The vegan suede feels really nice and smooth. Motorola says it should hold up well to scratches and scraps, but it’s too early to say if that is true.

What features does the Motorola Razr offer?

Motorola Razr AM AH 80

The Motorola Razr offers a number of new features and upgrades compared to the 2023 model. That includes some big camera upgrades, display upgrades and Moto AI.

Moto AI

Motorola, like just about every other Android OEM, is adding plenty of AI features to its phones. However, it is hoping to make these AI features useful for the user. That includes being able to do things like improve your pictures, generative pretty wallpapers, and much more. Like Samsung, Motorola is also using Google’s Gemini to power its AI features.

With Gemini, Motorola will allow you to use Gemini from the External Display, as well as using the power button to quickly bring up Gemini. It’s built into the phone, similar to the Galaxy S24 series, as well as TECNO’s new CAMON series.

Motorola has said that purchasers of the Razr and Razr+ will get three months of Google One’s AI Premium plan, which is a $20/month value and includes access to Gemini Advanced.

Additionally, Motorola has previewed a number of features that will be added to Razr in the coming months. This includes notification summaries. It’ll also be easier to help you remember things, and it can quickly pay attention to start recording a conversation and provide you with a summary.

Bigger and Better External Displays

Both Razr models sport larger external displays, though both now run full Android apps on the outside, which is incredible. The Razr has a 2.5x larger external display at 3.6 inches. At the same time, the Razr+ jumps from a 3.6-inch to a 4-inch display. They are making it truly full-screen when the phone is closed.

With the external displays, you’re able to run full Android apps like Spotify, Google Maps, Gmail, TikTok, X, and much more. You also get plenty of panels that you can use as full-page widgets. This all works to give you less reason actually to open the phone. And let’s not forget, you can play many games on the external display too.

Razr+ ditches ultrawide for a 2x telephoto camera

While both Razr models sport a new 50-megapixel main sensor, the Razr+ does ditch the ultrawide sensor for a new 2x telephoto sensor. With this telephoto camera, you’re able to get better bokeh for portraits, but you also get 2x optical zoom, along with 4x zoom, which is done by cropping in on the large 50-megapixel sensor.

Smaller, more durable hinge

The hinge on the Motorola Razr is also smaller this time around. Motorola is about 30% smaller, which also helps it to be more durable and resistant to dust and water. This hinge also helps to create a creaseless display on the Razr. On top of all of that, this new hinge also makes it more stable. While allowing the phone to unfold completely flat, unlike a handful of other foldables that have launched recently, Motorola is still keeping that Razr at 180 degrees.

Should I upgrade to the Motorola Razr or Razr+?

Unlike most new smartphones in 2024, Motorola has actually provided some pretty big updates year-over-year for the Razr. For the regular Razr, Motorola is providing a pretty major update to the cameras, as well as the front-display. However, the performance is likely very similar due to the fact that Motorola has switched to the MediaTek Dimensity 7300X. Whereas the Motorola Razr+ has also improved the cameras (swapping the ultrawide for a telephoto sensor), and an even larger display, along with a huge improvement in performance. Since it jumps from the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 to the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3.

Now, if you’re coming from another foldable, the Motorola Razr+ is still a pretty good upgrade, as it is far ahead of the Galaxy Z Flip 5, never mind the fact that there is no crease on the Razr+. You’ll have to wait for our full review of both models in the coming weeks to see if it’s really a big enough upgrade.
