Originally predicted to arrive Down Underneath in January, it’s now been officially exposed that the new Motorola Razr flip mobile phone with foldable show will be accessible to obtain in Australia from February 24.
When followers of Razr’s classic flip mobile phone design have been eagerly anticipating the gadget, we have to marvel regardless of whether that nostalgia will be enough for them to justify paying the handset’s eye-watering asking price tag, which is established at AU$two,699 domestically.
Not-so spectacular specs
For the sake of comparison, which is AU$three hundred less than Samsung’s likewise high priced Galaxy Fold gadget, but you can find a vital big difference: the latter certainly floors the approaching Motorola when it comes to specs.
Boasting a decidedly mid-vary chipset in the Snapdragon 710, the new Razr also offers a somewhat tiny two,510mAh battery, alongside with 128GB of onboard storage, 6GB of RAM and a six.two-inch Hd principal show.
As expensive as the Galaxy Fold is at AU$two,999, Samsung can rarely be accused of skimping when it comes to the device’s components, presenting a flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset, a four,380mAh battery, 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM, alongside with a pill-sized 7.3-inch QHD+ show when unfolded.
You can find however hope
Even with all those specs, the Galaxy Fold did not offer anywhere near as numerous units as Samsung hoped it would, and we have to picture that its exorbitant price tag was the principal rationale for that.
That reported, there is a opportunity that the Galaxy Fold’s chunky form-aspect (which was like possessing two phones stacked on prime of each individual other when folded) put men and women off the gadget – some thing somewhat the slim and compact Motorola Razr will not have to be concerned about.
Of program, Samsung has its own foldable clamshell gadget on the way in the Galazy Z Flip, which could throw a main spanner in Motorola’s programs, significantly if rumours of its stunning affordability are to be believed.
