Motorola unveiled the Razr 40 and Razr 40 Ultra in June. The Razr 40 Ultra launched in the US as the Razr+, and now the Razr 40 Ultra has also debuted in the States. It’s called Motorola Razr in the US and Canada, but the URL of the listing on Motorola’s websites for these regions mentions the smartphone as Motorola Razr Gen 3.
Motorola is touting the Razr as the most affordable clamshell in the US, and it also introduced a new software experience called Moto Unplugged to « help users take a break from their smartphone, removing distractions so they can be more present. » It’s basically a focus mode that helps users take a « digital break » from the apps of their choice for a certain amount of time.
The rest of the stuff remains the same, meaning you get the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 SoC, Android 13, and a 4,200 mAh battery with 30W wired and 5W wireless charging. The Motorola Razr’s FullHD+ folding LTPO AMOLED display measures 6.9″ display and has a 144Hz screen refresh rate.
