motorola just introduced the razr 40 Ultra, the company’s latest foldable smartphone, in China, as it had promised. It has a large 6.9-inch FHD+ internal foldable LTPO pOLED screen with 1-165Hz refresh rate and the largest 3.6-inch FHD+ outer pOLED screen with 144Hz refresh rate.
It retains the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC from last year’s razr model. The larger cover screen has several options to personalize including the option to change the display layout, fonts, colors, theme, and even the size. You can also access several apps including music player, Maps and more directly from the cover screen.
The number of components in the hinge is reduced to 85, and the hinge holds the display at 45°~120°, so it can stand on its own at multiple angles. The company says it has undergone 400,000 opening and closing tests.
The phone has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus on both front and rear in Infinite Black and Glacier Blue versions, and the Viva Magenta has a Vegan leather finish. There is 7000 series aluminum frame. The phone packs a 3800mAh battery with support for 33W TurboPower fast charging and also supports wireless charging.
