Device manufacturer Lenovo brings back the beloved Motorola brand with not just one but two smartphones: Motorola Razr 5G and Moto G 5G Plus.
Motorola Razr 5G
The once game-changing “flip” design of the Razr is back and Lenovo said this version is “better than ever.”The new hinge leaves no space in between when folded closed, making the phone as slim and compact as possible and more protected against dust and debris. The hinge is designed again to flip open with just one hand and has enough sturdiness to stay firm while open. The hinge is also built to last. If the user flips the phone 100 times a day every day, it will take more than five years to reach 200,000 flips which is just the baseline of the phone’s rigorous non-stop flip test.
While folded, users can utilize the Razr 5G’s external 2.7-inch Quick View display that can now do more than just tell time and notify of incoming calls or messages. With the phone’s Android 10 OS, users can swipe up to access the home screen, right to use the camera, or left to call contacts and run apps. Users can utilize eight apps pre-selected within the Quick View display.
While holding the Razr 5G horizontally, films and videos come to life through the display’s CinemaVision technology which brings in 21:9 resolution quality, the same ultra-wide dimensions used in the film industry. Speaking of visuals, users can enjoy crystal-clear photos with the Razr 5G’s 48MP camera[iii] with Quad Pixel technology that captures sharp, vibrant photos, even in low-light conditions. Flipping the Razr 5G closed also leads to new photo opportunities through its many camera modes.
Moto G 5G Plus
Coming in a 6.7-inch display, the moto g 5G plus also has CinemaVision which allows the phone to show movies in their full 21:9 cinematic beauty. The display has a 90Hz screen refresh rate and an HDR10 feature that reduces screen tearing and displays motion smoother than ever while also delivering sharp contrast and vibrant colors. Furthermore, the phone has the Snapdragon™ 765 processor, making it one of the few mid-tier phones to possess one.
What sets apart the moto g 5G plus is its innovative six-camera setup which content creators are sure to enjoy. At the front, there’s an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 16MP Quad Pixel camera that’s perfect for selfies taken during the day or night. Its sensor captures the smallest details and can even deliver four times better light sensitivity than other cameras. Meanwhile, the back features four cameras led by the 48MP Quad Pixel camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 5MP camera with a macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor camera. Users can snap to their hearts’ content on any occasion, thanks to the many shooting modes presented, such as Long Exposure, Spot Color, Auto Smile Capture, and AI Shot Optimization that uses Artificial Intelligence to automatically select the right settings to help capture the perfect memory.
Both the Motorola Razr 5G and moto g 5G plus will be available in the Philippines in December 2020 in all major electronics stores and authorized Lenovo resellers. The Motorola Razr 5G has a price tag of P72,990 (around $1,500), while the 8GB RAM variant of the Moto G 5G plus will retail at P16,990 (around $350).
