A few days after the launch of the powerful foldable Razr 40 Ultra in Brazil and worldwide, Motorola starts selling the Motorola Razr 40 in China with the aim of becoming popular in the segment by offering a model with good specifications at a lower price. And the more accessible version of the folding duo will also be presented to the international market soon.
The Razr 40, as previously announced, is a basic version of the Razr 40 Ultra betting on a lower cost finish, mid-range smartphone performance and simpler cameras, but still delivering a good experience for consumers looking for their first foldable.
One of the cost reductions to make the Razr 40 more popular is clearly visible in the external screen that is only 1.5 inches, much smaller than the imposing 3.6 inches panel present in the Razr 40 Ultra.
Despite the smaller size, Motorola still features quick shortcuts to access notifications, weather and calendar apps, as well as multimedia control, multiple clock styles, control center and more.
The flexible 6.9-inch internal screen uses pOLED technology with a high refresh rate of 144 Hz for even smoother navigation and is capable of reaching a maximum brightness of up to 1,400 nits, making it easier to read even under intense sunlight.
Thanks to its waterdrop hinge, the Razr 40’s foldable display reduces the crease in the central region and offers an even more immersive experience without compromising on glare-heavy viewing.
The foldable has an internal 32 MP front camera and two rear cameras: a main one with a 64 MP sensor and optical image stabilization (OIS) and a secondary one with 13 MP and an ultrawide lens for photos and videos with a wider field of view. .
Equipped with the fast Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 premium mid-range processor, the Razr 40 will be able to deliver enough performance for the vast majority of consumers who are looking for a more affordable foldable smartphone and are not interested in the most expensive product with the highest performance — at least in theory, we will still need to wait for the full analysis to confirm.
Promising a full day of use, Motorola offers a 4,200 mAh battery with support for wireless charging for greater day-to-day convenience.
Following other competitors in the category, the Razr 40 still offers a fingerprint reader integrated into the side power button, IP52 certification for resistance against grains of sand and drops of water, in addition to NFC connectivity, Wi-Fi 6e and dual chip support with and yes.
