Moto Razr 2022 rivals the Samsung Galaxy Flip 4, but you can't buy it in the US
Motorola's new Razr has a larger outer screen, one of the key things holding Samsung's foldable phone back
I covered the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 3 this week, but there was another sequel to a clam-shell-styled foldable smartphone announced this week – in China. And, surprise, Motorola may have the better phone… you just can’t easily buy it.
The Moto Razr 2022 offers a big update to the first- and second-gen predessors with a large 2.7-inch outer cover screen that rivals the 1.9-inch sliver of a screen from Samsung’s similarly clam-shell-styled flip phone. This means you’ll be able to swipe through notifications and widgets just a little bit easier with that extra screen space.
The Moto Razr 2022 cameras seem on par with what the Flip 4 offers, and the 144Hz refresh rate on the tall screen 6.7-inch OLED screen seems to edge Samsung just a bit (where the Samsung is usually the best). They both feature the latest Qualcomm chipset and HDR10+, according to the specs.
