June 19, 2023
At Motorola, we’re always looking for opportunities to bring unique innovations to our consumers, like the new motorola razr ultra 40/ razr+. But regardless of how game-changing the innovation is, we also believe that it needs to serve a purpose, solve our consumers’ pain points and delight them with useful features. Here are a few of our favorite features on the new motorola razr 40 ultra/razr+.
do more without even flipping open the device We heard from consumers that they wanted more functionality from the external display, so we equipped razr 40 ultra/razr+ with the largest, most advanced external display on a modern flip smartphone*. Not only is it larger, but it also offers expanded capabilities for productivity, gaming, entertainment and personalization.
Users can watch their favorite shows and movies, take a selfie, or get directions using the large 3.6” 144Hz external display. They can also type a quick reply with a full built-in keyboard or use the dedicated Spotify panel to switch to custom playlists, select new stations and even see recommended artists and playlists, curated just for them. Plus, they can seamlessly continue whatever activities they’re doing on the internal display, on the external display once closed.
Customization is also among the top priorities for our consumers. That’s why we’ve equipped users with the option to choose from an assortment of colorful live wallpaper designs, moto clock styles, shortcuts for easy navigation, and panels so it’s arranged just the way you like it.
content capturing just got a whole lot easier Now more than ever we’re seeing the value consumers place on the ability to quickly capture content. So when designing the razr ultra 40/ razr+, we made content creation a priority throughout each component.
With Flex View, the possibilities are endless. The ability to stand the phone on its own at multiple angles gives consumers built-in tripod capabilities on the go, and opens up new ways to interact, capture, and create. Plus with the high-quality cameras, AI face tracking, hands free recording, and previews on the large external display, users are able to more easily produce amazing social media content.
camera experiences worth raving about The motorola razr 40 ultra/ razr+ not only comes equipped with a powerful 12MP main camera sensor with Instant Dual Pixel PDAF for a faster, more accurate performance no matter the lighting conditions but also some brand new camera software features to match.
Thanks to the Flex View and high-quality cameras, it’s super simple to capture gorgeous selfies. With the Photo Booth feature, users can preview and capture four different poses in four perfectly timed pictures, all triggered by a simple open-palm gesture.
Users can also leverage the large external display as a mirror before taking a selfie with the high-quality cameras, which let users zoom in 3x closer than a standard lens to see every little detail.
iconic, pocketable and stylish as ever The motorola razr – the world’s first flip smartphone – introduced engineering breakthroughs and while evolving razr’s design, we looked for areas of continuous refinement. razr 40 ultra/ razr+ delivers the perfect balance of style and innovation and is the thinnest flippable smartphone in the industry when flipped closed, when compared to other foldables in the market. The reimagined hinge mechanism makes for a virtually creaseless, smooth, and seamless touchscreen experience when opened. And the colors, matte glass or vegan leather finish, and materials used to make an ultra-sleek, modern look and feel when flipped shut.

Thanks to Flex View and high-quality cameras, users get to showcase different poses in four perfectly timed pictures, all triggered by a simple open palm gesture so users can have confidence in great artistic shots without frantically racing to beat the timer.
In addition to opening up new possibilities for content capture, we’ve also enhanced what’s possible on the external display so users can do more with the device flipped closed. Responding to messages, getting directions, and staying up to date has never been easier thanks to unique features like:
Panels: Custom panels allow users to prioritize what matters most. Swipe left or right to easily access games, Google News, weather, contacts, Spotify, and view notifications at a glance. Plus, an Apps panel gives you access to almost any app, like Google Maps or Google Wallet, right from the external display.
Customization: Users can choose from an assortment of colorful live wallpaper designs and a range of Moto clock styles. Customize and arrange the panels on their Home screen, dragging and dropping so they’re arranged to fit the needs of every unique razr user.
Game: Choose from a number of highly engaging games from Motorola and GameSnacks that work perfectly on the external display. Play through mysterious lands in Golf Adventures, help a feline friend escape to freedom in Tiger Run, or find your way to the finish in Marble Mayhem.
Dedicated Spotify Panel: Spotify users can control playback from the device’s external display. Without unfolding the device, users can tap to continue listening where they left off or start playing something brand new. Or if they are not feeling the current mood – users can tap to switch to a new personalized recommendation.
Users can enjoy all of these features on a 3.6” pOLED external display with refresh rates up to 144Hz, so scrolling through websites is seamless. Or users can prop open their device in Flex View to watch their favorite content with the highest resolution in its class7 and in a billion shades of true-to-life color.
Versatile Camera System: ideal for content creation
The razr+/razr 40 ultra was built with content creators in mind, and packs in a powerful 12MP main camera sensor using Instant Dual Pixel PDAF for a faster, more accurate performance no matter the lighting conditions. Capture photos with beautiful soft focus backgrounds thanks to a wide f/1.5 aperture that lets in more light to deliver photos with beautiful soft focus backgrounds, and OIS eliminates unwanted shakes so photos are always crystal clear. The external display allows for users to utilize the main camera for selfies, or to give friends a preview of their poses, so everyone’s happy with the picture. Users can also flip open razr+/razr 40 ultra and use the 32MP camera for selfies and video calls, or keep their hands free by folding the phone into the ideal view for the perfect selfie.

Flipped closed, the phone folds completely in half, with the top and bottom edges aligning perfectly for a gapless, ultra-sleek look. Flip it open to reveal an ultra-smooth, gorgeous, full-sized pOLED display whenever you need it.
Motorola is excited to introduce a redesigned teardrop hinge with this new razr, comprised of the industry’s first dual-axis tracking that minimizes the size of the system. Compared to other foldables in the market, razr+/razr 40 ultra is the thinnest when flipped closed. Plus, this hinge system combined with Ultra Thin Glass makes the foldable nearly creaseless when the display unfolds, resulting in a seamless look and smooth feel.
