Mobile News: Motorola’s just-announced Razr 5G is better than its predecessor in every way that matters, including camera performance, processing power, functionality, and more
B&H is excited to announce the latest foldable smartphone from Motorola: the Razr 5G. Outshining its predecessor in almost every single way, the Razr 5G features a vastly improved camera setup, faster performance, and greater availability.

As far as the screen goes: The foldable display appears to be the only hardware feature Motorola didn’t massively overhaul. Spec-wise, it looks like the same panel from last year’s Razr: a 6.2″ OLED with an
