Motorola introduced a clamshell foldable smartphone with nostalgic design and called it the RAZR. The company introduced its successor, the Razr 5G this year for around $1400. While the design mostly remains the same, it is a much more refined smartphone. The Motorola RAZR’s boxy design has been translated to curved glass at the rear, and aircraft-grade aluminum. Now, it is selling for $400 less! You can purchase the Motorola Razr 5G for $1000.

The RAZR 5G features a unique design that actually makes it feel like a clamshell instead of a regular phone with a hinge. It features a 6.2-inch plastic OLED (2,142×876 pixels) with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The crease is something you wouldn’t notice unless you happen to run your hand over it. There is a 2.7-inch secondary display. This not only saves you the effort to flip open the smartphone but also saves battery. The ease of checking notifications while sitting in a cafe with friends that you get here is priceless.

Motorola Razr 5G

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, paired with Adreno 620 GPU. It comes equipped with 256GB of internal storage with 8GB RAM. In my two-day usage, I didn’t come across any lags. The UI is smooth as ever, and works very well. In the optics department, the Motorola RAZR 5G sports a single rear camera of 48MP with f/1.7 aperture. Camera features include OIS, laser autofocus, and Quad Pixel technology for better low-light sensitivity. It can be used to click selfies as well. 

The clamshell foldable packs a 2,800mAh battery with support for 18W TurboPower fast charging. I can safely say that it lasted an entire day for me on normal usage.

Moto G 5G to be launched in India on Nov 30

It's only fair to share...Share on RedditShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

A couple of days ago, it was being reported that Motorola prepping for the launch of two new smartphones in India. It is tipped to launch the Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power. The two phones have already been unveiled in the European market earlier this month. The company did say that Moto G 5G will be coming to India, Latin America, Middle East, and Asia in the coming weeks. Now, we have an official launch date for the smartphone in India.

The latest development comes from Flipkart. The e-commerce site has a ‘coming soon’ page ready for the upcoming smartphone. It says that Moto G 5G will be “India’s most affordable 5G ready phone.” It’s amusing to me that brands are pushing 5G in India, where the 5G spectrum auctions are yet to take place. Anyway, the Moto G 5G will be launching at 12 noon on November 30 in India.

The ‘most affordable 5G smartphone of India’ comes at a time when 5G still seems a distant reality in the country.

While the teaser page doesn’t reveal much, we already know the specifications of the upcoming smartphone. The Moto G 5G features a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) LTPS display with 394ppi pixel density. It is powered by the Snapdragon 750G SoC, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card.

The smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup of 48MP primary + 8MP wide-angle + 2MP macro, and a 16MP selfie shooter. It packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging. Further, it is priced at EUR 299.99 for the sole 4GB + 64GB storage model. This translates to around INR 26,500. We expect it to be priced below that in India.

Motorola is also tipped to launch the Moto G9 Power soon. It might be launched later. Perhaps, next month in the Indian market.

It's only fair to share...Share on RedditShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

These are some of the best Apple deals for Black Friday

Alright, we’ve decided that this deals segment needs to grow when the demand calls for it, and come on, it’s Black Friday week. Since today we’re talking Apple for the hottest news, let’s begin with Apple deals. Like yesterday, we’re gonna start this off with trade-in deals first, as you can currently get the iPhone 12 Pro for $370 off, if you have an eligible device, leaving the entry level model for $629. The 12 Pro Max is getting the same treatment, leaving that at $729. Moving on to Macs, the Intel 13in MacBook Pro is $150 off, leaving the Intel Core i5, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD variant for $1649. The 16in MacBook Pro is $260 off, that leaves the Core i7, 6GB of RAM and 512GB of storage model for $2150. Finally, the old Intel MacBook Air is $100 off, that leaves the entry level model for $899. Again these are Intel models which is kind of a bummer but they’re still good machines. Now, iPads! The 11in iPad Pro, Wi-Fi only model with 512GB of storage is available for $100 off, leaving it at $999. The latest iPad Air is also $40 off, that leaves the entry level variant for $559. And guys, this segment is already pretty long so we have more deals on other Macs, other iPads, the Apple Watch and even some Beats products in the links in the description.

These are the best Samsung deals for Black Friday

Oh, that was just Apple’s section. For all you Samsung fans, This is a quick reminder of the deals they continue to have, which make it really compelling to get their latest devices. Just keep in mind that these deals depend on you having an eligible device to trade in. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is available for the same $1000 we mentioned yesterday, but now in both color options and the customizable hinge. The Note 20 Ultra is available for $550 and the regular Note 20 for a crazy $250. Moving on to the S Series, you can get the S20 for $390, the S20+ for $540 and the Ultra for $740, might makes them a tough pick given the crazy deal for the Note 20 Ultra. To end with Samsung, you can also get the S20 FE for $140 so, again, all these deals apply if you have an eligible device to trade in. Sticking to Samsung and their trade-ins, the Galaxy Watch 3 is also available for $140 and the Titanium version is available for $300. Pretty much half of for both of them. We also have deals on the Galaxy Buds, the Watch Active 2 and more in the description.

Black Friday gives us Motorola, Google and more Samsung deals

And no worries, we’re not done. That was just the Apple and Samsung section for today’s deals, We’ve got more on other companies as well.. Let’s move on to Google smart speakers, for example the Nest Hub is $40 off, leaving it at $50 shipped. The Home Max is $150 off, leaving it at $149. They also have some bundles like the Nest Audio 2 pack for $30 off, leaving it at $170. Moving on to Moto, the RAZR 5G is $400 off, leaving it at $1000 shipped. The Edge is also $300 off, leaving that at $400 shipped. We also have deals on the G Power, G Stylus and more. HyperX is also having a huge sale on their keyboards headsets and more. Their Alloy Origins Keyboard is $300 off, leaving it at $80. Their HyperX Cloud Stinger Core headset is $10 off, leaving it at $29 shipped on Amazon. Finally, Fitbit also has some pretty good options with the Versa 3 being $30 off, meaning you can get it for $200. The Special Edition for the Versa 2 is $70 off, leaving it at $150. We have even more deals in the links in the description.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip successor might rock a 120Hz display and slimmer bezels

Fine, let’s now move on to news. If you tuned in yesterday, one of the things we talked about is that we would be getting the next Galaxy Z Flip, later than the Galaxy S21 unlike last year where we got them at the same event. Well, according to some new reports from the Elec this phone was actually delayed, mainly to push production for the Galaxy S21 and because of what we covered yesterday which said that Samsung doesn’t want new products to mess with their regular sales as the Galaxy Note might disappear. The report also adds that Samsung might launch anywhere between three to five foldables next year, maybe they’re adding more phones to each line-up with different price points. On another note (pun intended), a new leak from Ice Universe says that this phone will actually be called the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and it will bring an improved 120Hz display, narrower bezels and it will get a cheaper price tag. Now, we don’t actually know how cheaper yet but, if they really want this strategy to succeed, they should at least price this and the Z Fold 3, somewhat closer to the Note’s price point.

We have new images of the Samsung Galaxy S21 or the Galaxy S21+

And yes, let’s keep talking about Samsung but this time for the Galaxy S21 and I guess you can say we’re in the home stretch when it comes to leaks for this phone. We have some new case renders for either the S21 or the S21+ telling by this design. They show the flat display which will either be 6.2in or 6.7in depending on the variant, both rocking 120Hz display rates at FHD+, kind of a downgrade when compared to the S20. At the back you can also see the camera array which is significantly smaller than the Ultra’s rocking three cameras which consist of a 12MP main sensor, a 64MP telephoto and a 12MP ultra wide. A while ago we also had other case renders for the Ultra but we didn’t do a daily that day and, the thing about it is that all we can see is the camera array and not the display. We’re expecting an event to happen sometime around January 14 so let’s see, things should only get more interesting from here.

Story of the day:

Redesigned MacBooks with Apple silicon are coming in H2 2021: Kuo

And finally the hottest news today have to do with Apple, the fact that we still can’t believe how good those M1 MacBooks are, and yet why you might wanna wait a little to buy. I mean sure, Cupertino just unveiled these new batch of computers, but the concerns of many are valid, they seriously look like the old ones in every way. It would make sense for anyone to want a re-design, and we also wonder what the next batch of Apple Silicon chips is gonna be able to do. Well, according to a new research note from Ming Chi Kuo, the next step in Apple’s two year transition away from Intel is redesigned MacBooks. Now, he didn’t really specify which models we’re getting, but he has previously said that we should expect a redesigned 16in and a 14in MacBook Pro with Apple Silicon that should launch in the second or third quarter of 2021. Based on other Kuo reports, we should also expect some new miniLED Macs and a lower priced iPad in the first quarters of the year. Now, when it comes to sales, he predicts that the demand for these M1 Macs is actually higher than expected, and the 12 Pro and Pro Max are actually stealing the show when it comes to iPhones as the demand for the regular 12 and the Mini is not as high. Finally, both Apple Watches are selling well thanks to the new health management functions and the improved design.

Motorola’s latest budget offering is the Moto E7 that offers a 48MP camera for €119.99

A couple of months ago, Motorola launched a budget smartphone called the Moto E7 Plus. Today, the company has lifted the covers from Moto E7, a toned-down iteration that packs a weaker MediaTek processor, fewer megapixels on the front camera, a smaller battery, and as expected, a lighter price tag. The Moto E7 starts at €119.99 and will be sold in European markets, while a few Latin American, Middle-East and Asian countries will also get it in the coming weeks. 

The Moto E7’s design is quite familiar as it borrows heavily from its pricier sibling, but it is claimed to be water-repellant. The fingerprint sensor is at the back, and there is also a dedicated button for summoning the Google Assistant. Over at the front, you’ll find a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a notch at the top and fairly thick bezels at the bottom. 

Moto E7

The octa-core MediaTek Helio G25 processor keeps things running, in tandem with 2 gigs of RAM and up to 64GB of onboard storage which can be expanded by another 512GB using a microSD card. A 4,000mAh battery provides the juice, while Android 10 handles things on the software. The UI is almost stock Android, but it is disappointing to see that the device doesn’t run Android 11 out-of-the-box.

In the camera department, the latest budget offering from Motorola packs a 48MP primary snapper and a 2MP macro camera, while selfies are handled by a 5MP shooter. There are not many fancy camera features to play, but there is a dedicated night mode and the nifty Google Lens integration in the main camera app.

Moto G 5G, Moto G9 Power could be launched in India soon

Motorola is tipped to be prepping for the launch of two new smartphones in India. It could soon unveil the Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power in the Indian market. For the unaware, the two phones were launched in the European market earlier this month and at the time, Motorola did not share details about Indian availability for either. However, it announced that the Moto G 5G will be coming to India, Latin America, Middle East, and Asia in the coming weeks. While the company hasn’t revealed official details about the two phone launches, a tipster claims that they could be launched soon.

The rumour comes from noted tipster Mukul Sharma, who tweeted that Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power will be launched in India soon. The tweet does not mention an exact launch date, but in one of the replies the tipster wrote that Motorola won’t be launching these phones this month. This means, the two upcoming phones are likely to launch in India in the month of November.

The Moto G 5G is priced at EUR 299.99 for the sole 4GB + 64GB storage model, while the Moto G9 Power costs EUR 199 for the single 4GB + 128GB storage model. Both phones run Android 10.

The Moto G 5G features a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1,080×2,400 pixels) LTPS display with 394ppi pixel density. It is powered by the Snapdragon 750G SoC. The smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup of 48MP primary + 8MP wide-angle + 2MP macro, and a 16MP selfie shooter. it packs a 5,000mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging.

On the other hand, the Moto G9 Power comes equipped with a big 6.8-inch HD+ (720×1,640 pixels) IPS display. It is powered by the Snapdragon 662 chipset, and packs a massive 6,000mah battery that supports 20W fast charging as well. The smartphone sports a triple rear camera setup of 64MP primary + 2MP macro + 2MP depth sensor, while a 16MP camera lies on the front.

Motorola is prepping a high-end phone with Snapdragon 865 codenamed ‘Nio’

Motorola made a return to the Android flagship arena by launching a no-compromises device called the Motorola Edge+. The device was an appealing package with top-of-the-notch specs and a sleek design. However, sub-par cameras, a not-so-competitive asking price, and white-hot competition kept it from really making a dent in the segment. But the company is far from giving up. As per new rumors, the company is preparing to launch a new flagship device codenamed ‘Nio’.

As per information received by TechnikNews, the company is reportedly working on a device powered by the Snapdragon 865 and it will likely arrive next year. It will be among the first wave of new Motorola smartphones that will debut running Android 11. The processor of choice is a bit confusing, as Qualcomm is just over a week away from launching a successor that will likely debut carrying the name Snapdragon 875. As for the device itself, it carries the model number XT2125 and will reportedly debut in Q1 2021. 

90Hz display, triple rear cameras and Android 11 on software side

The Snapdragon 865 chip at the heart of Motorola’s new flagship will be paired with 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Over at the front, there will be a 90Hz display with full-HD+ (2520 x 1080 pixels) resolution, but the size of the panel is not known yet. Also, it is unclear if the company will carry forward the curved screen aesthetics of the Motorola Edge series, or if it will rely on a flat display for the upcoming ‘Nio’ device. 

Coming to the imaging department, Motorola will reportedly equip its next high-end smartphone with the 64MP OmniVision OV64B sensor. The wide-angle camera uses the 16MP ov16a10 sensor which is again supplied by OmniVision. There is also a 2MP depth camera that relies on the OV02PB OmniVision sensor. There are two selfie cameras on the front, sitting in what is likely going to be a hole-punch cut-out. The main camera uses the 16MP OV16A1Q sensor, and is assisted by an 8MP secondary camera that uses Samsung’s S5K4H7 sensor.

Moto G Stylus 2021 could pack SD 675 SoC, 4300mAh battery, and four rear cameras

Motorola’s next smartphone with stylus is touted to be the Moto G Stylus 2021. It is the successor of Moto G Stylus that was launched by the company in February 2020. It is powered by the Snapdragon 665 chipset. Now, the specifications of its successor has leaked online.

The latest development comes from popular tipster Evan Blass who shared the Moto G Stylus 2021 specifications on Voice.com. According to the report, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 6.81-inch display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a 1080 x 2400 pixels Full HD+ resolution. To recall, that’s a jump from the 6.4-inch screen size on the original Moto G Stylus.

The upcoming smartphone could be powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC, paired with 4GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Moto G Stylus 2021 could sport a quad rear camera setup with a 48MP primary shooter. It is said to be accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and two 2MP shooters for depth and macro needs. On the front might lie a 16MP camera housed within a punch-hole.

Motorola’s Edge+, RAZR, and more phones will be on sale during Flipkart’s Big Billion Days

Motorola has announced a slew of offers on its smartphones for Flipkart’s Big Billion Days sale. The company will sell its flagship devices including the foldable RAZR and Edge+ at discounted prices during the sale that is scheduled to kick off on October 16. For reference, it is the 2019 RAZR that will be on sale, and not the latest one. However, Rs. 84,999 is an exciting price tag for a foldable phone.

Starting with the flagship Motorola Razr, the phone is listed at Rs. 1,24,999 on Flipkart as of now. To recall, the device received a Rs. 30,000 price cut but it was limited to offline retails. Now, the company has revealed that it will be selling the foldable phone at a discount of Rs. 40,000, which brings down the price to Rs. 84,999. It will be made available in Noir Black color.

Coming to the Motorola Edge+, it was launched at Rs. 74,999, which wasn’t taken very well by many. Now, the company will be offering a Rs. 10,000 discount on the product. The device was launched in May, and now it will be sold for Rs. 64,999. It comes in a single 12GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration, while it is available in two color options of Smoky Sangria and Thunder Grey.

As for the mid-range offering, the Motorola Fusion+ will also be seeing a discount of Rs. 1,500. To recall, the product was launched at Rs. 16,999 but received a Rs. 500 price hike soon after. It is available for Rs. 17,499 as of now. However, Motorola will be selling the Fusion+ at Rs. 15,999. We reviewed the device and it was a decent offering at that time. You can read our review here. The device comes in sole 6GB + 128GB storage model and is available in Twilight Blue and Moonlight White color options.

There will also be discounts on Moto E7 Plus and Moto G9. The former will sell for Rs. 8,999 after a Rs. 500 discount while the latter will be available for Rs. 9,999 after a Rs. 1,500 discount.

Motorola RAZR 5G first impressions: Nostalgia is the future?

Last year, Motorola introduced a clamshell foldable smartphone with nostalgic design and called it the RAZR. The company today launched its successor, the RAZR 5G in India. It is built on the same idea – nostalgia. While the design mostly remains the same, it is a much more refined smartphone. The Motorola RAZR’s boxy design has been translated to curved glass at the rear, and aircraft-grade aluminum. 

The RAZR 5G features a unique design that actually makes it feel like a clamshell instead of a regular phone with a hinge. The huge chin comes into question here but in my usage, I found it useful. It makes the video consumption experience better because you get a grip to hold the smartphone. While some may say it’s ugly, I say it is unique. It definitely is a head-turner.

When closed, the Motorola RAZR 5G sits flush. There is almost no gap between the hinges. The company says not even a piece of paper can slide in there. It brings in confidence that the phone’s folding display won’t be affected by regular items like coins and keys in the pocket. Further, in my two-day usage, I didn’t notice the hinge squeaking while opening or closing the phone. 

Motorola RAZR 5G first impression

While we are discussing the design, I must mention that the power button is placed up top on the left edge, which makes it difficult for the user to power it on or off. Thankfully, you can flip it close to lock the screen. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the back but the placement is weird. I get it, due to the secondary display it couldn’t be any higher but it isn’t where my finger sits naturally.

One of my favorite features of the Motorola RAZR 5G is its Quick View display. It has gotten more useful with the second-generation folding smartphone. The Peek Display mode that lets you see notifications just by pressing and holding on an icon is still present. You can swipe up to respond to the notifications or swipe down to clear them. The latter worked seven out of ten times for me. 

The biggest development comes in the form of software on offer here. You can theoretically run almost any Android app on the secondary display. This is the major differentiator of RAZR from the Galaxy Flip. When the Peek Display is unlocked, you can swipe down to get to the control panel, and swipe up to see something similar to the notification shade. You can also swipe right to see a grid of apps and swipe right again, to see favorite contacts. While not every app is optimized for that small of a display, I was able to open Instagram (in weird aspect ratio) and Twitter to check the notifications, Spotify to play my favorite playlist, and WhatsApp to quickly reply to some texts. The keyboard is squished but you can easily type on it.

You can do almost everything on the 2.7-inch secondary display. This not only saves you the effort to flip open the smartphone but also saves battery. The ease of checking notifications while sitting in a cafe with friends that you get here is priceless. 

As for the main display, the Motorola RAZR 5G features a 6.2-inch plastic OLED (2,142×876 pixels) with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The crease is something you wouldn’t notice unless you happen to run your hand over it. However, you’ll be able to notice it when light falls on the display and it is reflected in random directions because of the crease. That said, the main display is very reflective. However, it is easily visible under direct sunlight and can get low enough at night to help you read on Kindle.

The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, paired with Adreno 620 GPU. It comes equipped with 256GB of internal storage with 8GB RAM. In my two-day usage, I didn’t come across any lags. The UI is smooth as ever, and works very well. Notably, the speakers aren’t the loudest or clearest I’ve come across on mobile devices. They are average at best.

In the optics department, the Motorola RAZR 5G sports a single rear camera of 48MP with f/1.7 aperture. Camera features include OIS, laser autofocus, and Quad Pixel technology for better low-light sensitivity. It can be used to click selfies as well. However, there is a 20MP selfie shooter at the front on the main display. I was able to click a few pictures, and they came out to be much better than the 2019 RAZR. This isn’t a full-fledged review, and I wasn’t able to push the camera to its full capabilities but I can safely say that it is a big improvement from its predecessor.

The clamshell foldable packs a 2,800mAh battery with support for 18W TurboPower fast charging. While I can’t give a verdict on the performance, I can say that it lasted an entire day for me on normal usage. 

Motorola has done an excellent job with the Peek Display on the RAZR 5G. It’s more versatile than ever, and apart from battery benefits, it made me use my phone less because I could do so much on the tiny screen. Overall, it is a much more improved clamshell foldable smartphone. You might not notice it at first, but there are plenty of upgrades that add to the overall user experience.
