The Latest Motorola Razr Flip Phones Are the Combination of AI Features with Innovative Design

Twenty years after the groundbreaking launch of the RAZR V3, Motorola continues to maintain its iconic essence and expand the boundaries of smartphone technology with each new iteration of the Razr. The new 2024 Motorola Razr family is no exception, showcasing Motorola’s commitment to evolution and excellence. With the new Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+ and Motorola Razr 50/Motorola Razr, the brand is introducing two stylish pocket-sized smartphones that bring the power of AI to more users’ hands.

Do it all with the largest, most intelligent external display in its class

Both members of the new Razr family feature massive external displays with the Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+ boasting the industry’s largest at 4.0″ and the Motorola Razr 50/Motorola Razr bringing a 3.6″ display. Even more, for the first time, Razr users will be able to access Google’s Gemini app directly from their external display.

Also new to the external display is access to Google Photos, giving users the ability to share, view, delete, or favorite images and videos instantly. This is in addition to a dedicated Spotify panel that allows users to skip songs and a Bose panel that allows you to more easily control your Bose earbuds and headphones.

When ready for a new look, Motorola is offering a new suite of clock faces and fun customization options for the external display. Users can change their Desk Display to feature a rotation of text and images they’re into that day, creating their own modern screensaver. Or they can shake it up with Moto Ai experiences. This includes Style Sync, which develops wallpaper options based on one’s outfit, and Magic Canvas, which generates a stunning image based on a text prompt.

Design choices that are bold, beautiful, and undeniably Razr

The new Razr devices feature bold colors, soft vegan leather finishes, and contoured edges that look as good as they feel in hand. With the Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+, consumers can pick between Midnight Blue, Spring Green, and Pantone™ Color of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz. Plus, the iconic Hot Pink Razr is back, giving consumers their daily dose of feel-good “newstalgia.” 

Infusing color on the front and back of the device, the Motorola Razr 50/Motorola Razr features shades of Beach Sand, Koala Grey, and Spritz Orange in vegan leather. The devices are also adventure-proof. Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus helps protect the external display from drops and scratches, underwater protection allows the device to withstand submersion in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes, and the simplified hinge offers better dust protection. 

Thanks to the revamped hinge, it’s also easier to flick open or snap the device shut with one hand. This makes the Razr ideal for dramatic hang-ups or switching to the massive 6.9″ pOLED display. A wide range of Flex View positions empowers users to snap their outfit of the day with the hands-free capture or record a beautiful skyline in shake-free camcorder mode that’s optimized for social media. For impromptu photoshoots, Photo Booth is now available on the external and internal cameras, stitching together four photos in a ready-to-share collage.

Cameras that harness the “wow factor” 

The new Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+ comes with Motorola’s best Razr camera technology yet, featuring a 50MP high-res, main camera system with Moto AI camera capabilities and Google Photos AI-powered editing features. With the 50MP telephoto lens, users can take advantage of the 2x optical zoom without losing image quality to capture stunning, flattering portraits that look great when standing up close or farther away. 

Optimized hardware and attentive software for non-stop fun

The Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+ is one of the world’s first flip phones to come with the Snapdragon® 8s Gen 3 Mobile Platform. This allows consumers to discover what’s possible with AI through accelerated performance, unparalleled connectivity, fast-paced gameplay, and even better content capture. 

When texting friends, consumers can utilize new features that amplify their conversations. Built into Google Messages, these enhancements include Magic Compose, which suggests texting responses in a variety of styles, so consumers can express themselves in new, creative ways, and Photomoji, which gives consumers the option to turn their favorite photos into personalized emoji or stickers.

To make the most of these features, the Motorola Razr 50 ultra/Motorola Razr+ is packed with a big 4000mAh battery that offers 5W reverse and 15W wireless charging capabilities. 

The Motorola Razr 50/Motorola Razr is also prepared to handle long days and even longer nights with a hefty 4200mAh battery and 30W TurboPower charging. It also has 15W wireless charging capabilities, and the 4nm MediaTek Dimensity 7300X processor offers better power efficiency to outlast all occasions. Additionally, the chipset enhances AI-based tasks while supporting visuals and new experiences.

A device ecosystem that’s all about connection

With the new Motorola Razr family, Motorola is expanding the Moto ecosystem. In addition to the recently launched Moto Buds+, Motorola is introducing the moto tag – a small, accessory-friendly Bluetooth® LE tag with Ultra Wideband that helps consumers locate their most valuable possessions, from their wallet to luggage, through Google’s Find My Device network.

Smart software that does all the thinking

Motorola’s distinctive software platform, Hello UX, offers an extensively personalized user experience, immersive capabilities, and an intuitive user interface. In addition to now offering more customizable options on the Razr family external display, users will continue to enjoy advanced ecosystem connectivity with Smart Connect, a safe environment for kids with Family Space, the ability to disconnect with Moto Unplugged and comprehensive security settings with Moto Secure.

Moto AI also enhances the smartphone experience by addressing user pain points with innovative generative AI solutions. In the coming months, Motorola will introduce several new Moto AI capabilities: 

  • With a simple prompt of “Catch me up,” users will receive a prioritized summary of personal communications, eliminating the need to sift through notifications.
  • Asking “Pay attention” will enable instant recording of conversations or speakers, automatically transcribing and summarizing them.
  • A command to “Remember this” will capture live moments or on-screen information, saving them automatically with AI-generated details. Information will be stored on the user’s device for easy recall later.

Additionally, users will be able to access Moto AI anywhere on their phone for assistance, quick suggestions, and answers to questions, including device usage guidance or more complex inquiries using Gemini from Google Cloud.
