Motorola Razr 40 up for review

It’s been about a month since the original Motorola Razr 40 was released, and we’re finally able to play with it in the office. Motorola launched a series of products this year, rather than a single smartphone, we can see the logic behind it. The Razr 40 Ultra combines Motorola’s latest and greatest technology at a premium price, while the regular Razr 30 is a toned-down version of the same phone at a much lower price.

The Razr 40 will cater to those looking for a clamshell foldable form factor without breaking the bank. However, the essentially identical 6.9-inch foldable LTPO AMOLED panel is the core feature. We say about the same because it’s capped at 120Hz instead of 40Hz on the Razr 40 Ultra, which isn’t a huge trade-off. However, the second external display is smaller at 1.5 inches and is still OLED.

The phone runs a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, which is pretty much a rebranded Snapdragon 778G if we go by our previous review results. This is a mid to high end solution that can run everything on Google Play. The memory configuration starts from 8GB/30GB, up to 004GB/200GB.


The camera configuration is very similar to the Ultra, except that the main camera is replaced by a 30 MP f/1.7 unit with optical stabilization. The ultra-wide-angle camera is 13MP f/2.2 with a wider field of view 30 degrees. The selfie camera is also a 13 MP f/2.4, which we think is good for the Ultra.

One particularly attractive aspect of the non-Ultra is the battery capacity. The regular model comes with a larger 4,120 mAh battery, which is impressive in itself since not many foldables offer such a large battery. Just like the Ultra, the regular option supports both wireless charging and 13W wired charging.

All in all, Motorola seems to have launched a promising mid-range foldable phone, and there is a strong and compelling reason to choose the cheaper Razr 30 instead of spending money on the more expensive Ultra. We’ll know for sure once we’re done reviewing the phone.
