Motorola Razr 5G Screens

So, with this newcomer, the brand hits hard. They are offering a clamshell smartphone equipped with a foldable screen. But, Motorola also equips the smartphone with a screen on the front of the phone as well as the foldable screen. This is what the brand calls the home screen.

Its two screens are the same size as the original version: the external one has a resolution of 600x800 pixels and is a glass OLED panel that measures 2.7 inches. The internal screen is a 6.2-inch plastic OLED panel with HD resolution and 2142x876 pixels.

The “Home screen” is a touch screen that displays the notifications without having to open up the phone. With this feature, it will be possible to see incoming messages read and respond to them either via the virtual keyboard or via voice integration. It will also be possible to display step-by-step navigation on Google Maps or even use your favourite music apps such as Spotify, YouTube Music and Deezer.

Once unfolded, the phone will show a screen layout similar to other Android smartphones.
