The design of this new Razr 5G reamins almost the same. Mainly, the chipset has been upgraded to Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G to add 5G support.

In order to streamline the Razr’s distinctive chin, the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back, where it’s been cleverly combined with the cutout for the Motorola logo.
It’s lower on the body than on most phones, so the new ergonomics take a little getting used to, but you can now use it as a notification shade shortcut.
It’s thicker, wider, and slightly shorter than last year’s model, with a more rounded flip on its top half and a new back plate on its bottom, both made of Gorilla Glass 5.
The display is the same P-OLED panel and its size is 6.2 inches, which has a notch on the top and similar stainless steel hinge. The display is now stretched more tightly across the metal supports underneath, and the hinge now has fewer moving parts.
Motorola says this new hinge should be good for 200,000 flips, or about five years if you flip it 100 times a day.
On the software side, the Razr 5G builds on the improvements that came with the Android 10 update, which were focused on letting you do things like send messages from the external display on the earlier Razr.
That display continues to be the Razr’s biggest advantage against Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip, and the Razr 5G takes it a step further by letting you do almost anything out here, including opening almost any app you want.
Motorola Razr 5G comes with upgraded Snapdragon 765G which has an integrated 5G modem and it has Andreno 620 GPU.
This new Razr 5G comes with an actual physical SIM tray this time around, instead of an eSIM.
There is a single cameras on the rear side of Motorola Razr 5G which is a 48 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture. This 48 MP sensor of Razr 5G also comes with the support of optical image stabilization (OIS).
There is also a 20 MP front facing camera that is placed inside the notch of the front display.
Motorola Razr 5G’s battery capacity has been improved from 2,510 mAh to 2800 mAh. But if we compare this to the competition, this is still very less. At this price point, the battery capacity should be at least 3,500 mAh.
I am also sad to see that Motorola couldn’t find room for a wireless charging coil in here, or any kind of charging faster than 15W and for $1,399, 15W fast charging is pretty slow.
Remember, this is basically the same spec sheet as what powers the OnePlus Nord. I don’t mind the lack of a high refresh rate display.
When you look at these hardware improvements and you take them together with the end of Verizon exclusivity and a new price point that undercuts the Galaxy Z Flip 5G. That’s just the kind of combination Motorola really needed to close the gap with the competition.
