Motorola releases special edition razr and edge devices, the first and only smartphones to launch in Pantone Color of the Year 2024

–        The motorola razr 40 ultra/motorola razr+ and motorola edge 40 neo will be available in PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz
–        This marks the third year of the exclusive collaboration focusing on the importance of building connection and empowering self-expression for consumers

Motorola and Pantone, the global color authority, have teamed up for the third year to create devices in the Pantone Color of the Year. The Pantone Color of the Year 2024, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, reinforces the importance of human connection and so do the devices chosen to represent it – the motorola razr 40 ultra/motorola razr+ and motorola edge 40 neo

The Pantone Color of the Year, announced by the Pantone Color Institute, is an educational program reflecting on the symbolic nature of color. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pantone Color of  the Year program with the chosen color PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz. A velvety gentle peach hue, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz has a cozy, tender essence that embodies feelings of togetherness, community and collaboration.

Of their continued partnership, Ruben Castano, Head of Customer Experience and Design at Motorola, said, “As technology becomes intertwined with humanity, we trust color to provide a tool for expression and deeper, more meaningful experiences with our devices. This includes going beyond devices and into the software itself. The Pantone Color of the Year 2024 does just that as it blends the virtual world we live in and our desire to establish deeper connections and well-being.”

The choice of PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz complements Motorola’s mission to make technology more accessible and help consumers use technology to connect intentionally. When selecting devices to feature PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, Motorola reflected on the color message and its emphasis on the power of human connection, finding that the motorola razr 40 ultra/motorola razr+ and motorola edge 40 neo embodied this mentality.

Available globally, the motorola razr 40 ultra/razr+ is built for connection and collaboration and lets expressive individuals stand out from the crowd with its iconic, flippable design. 

The motorola edge 40 neo is a device that puts color at the center of design. And the PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz hue in vegan leather beautifully complements the device’s warm, contoured design, engaging one’s senses and kindling the imagination. 

Both devices are designed with connection and personality at the center and offer features developed to enhance our common humanity. These include Motorola’s latest software offerings, Moto Unplugged and Family Space. Both of these apps embrace the balance between connectedness and rest, security and boldness. Moto Unplugged centers around the importance of taking mindful breaks from our device to be more present with ourselves and those around us, while Family Space encourages families to explore technology with guidance and grace. 

“It has been wonderful to work with Motorola and see their dedication to enabling creativity, connection, and personalization through color across their devices, and this year’s color carries particular importance to harnessing connection, community and personal wellbeing,” Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute, said. “Our Pantone Color of the Year 2024, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, seamlessly blends the virtual and real life, making it an ideal color for the physicality of digital devices. We are excited to see how our audiences leverage the features Motorola offers to enable and facilitate further connections.”

The motorola razr 40 ultra/motorola razr+ and motorola edge 40 neo in the Pantone Color of the Year 2024 will be available in select markets worldwide. For full pricing information and specifications, visit our website.

Motorola is making photo editing effortless with Auto Enhance from Google Photos

Google Photos Auto Enhance is now available exclusively in the Motorola camera interface on the new motorola edge 40 neo, motorola edge 40, moto g84 5G and moto g84 5G

More than 93% of Motorola consumers effortlessly open the camera application and capture photos without any additional settings or post-capture editing. With that in mind, Motorola will add the Google Photos Auto Enhance algorithm into the camera software of the new motorola edge 40 neo, motorola edge 40, moto g84 5G and moto g54 5G.

Users can toggle the Auto Enhance option in the camera’s user interface to instantly enhance color and lighting after a photo is taken. Once applied, the AI-based algorithm adjusts the components of each photo, carefully analyzing the image and automatically improving white balance, exposure, highlights, shadows, contrast, saturation, and more.

The effect of Google Photos Auto Enhance is subtle yet impactful and the image processing will automatically happen in the background, so the user doesn’t need to worry about missing the moment.

On top of it, Motorola smartphones use Google Photos as the native application for all photos and videos, automatically organizing them so they’re searchable by the people, places, and things in them. This means users’ photos and memories are always easy to find and share.

Fluid design, cutting-edge camera. Meet the new motorola edge-2023

The motorola edge family in North America continues to evolve, consistently placing style, functionality and advanced features at the forefront. The new motorola edge-2023 embodies this commitment, offering a beautiful and comfortable design with premium features. 

With its borderless curved edges, the new motorola edge fits perfectly in users’ hands. The contoured edges make it comfortable to hold, and the vegan leather back is soft, stylish, and easy to grip. Featuring a sandblasted aluminum frame and IP681 underwater protection, the new motorola edge comes ready for life’s adventures.  And while it’s one of the thinnest in its class (7.64mm), the motorola edge packs in a powerful 50MP camera system with the widest aperture available in a smartphone for stunning shots. 

The widest smartphone aperture for photos worth framing 

Sharp and bright photos are guaranteed with the 50MP high-res camera system, which features 2.0µm Ultra Pixels to capture more light, instant all-pixel focus with 32x more focusing pixels2 and OIS for stabilized shots, providing faster, more accurate low-light performance. Users will be able to focus faster with the Ambient Light Sensor that instantly measures the amount of light. This speeds up focus time, especially in low-light situations. There’s also an incredibly wide aperture (f/1.4) that allows for 64% more light3 to reach the sensor, resulting in:

  • Better performance in low-light environments for beautiful shots at all hours 
  • Soft-focus backgrounds behind one’s subject to create a professional-looking, natural bokeh effect
  • Faster capture speeds, resulting in crisp, detailed photos

Offering two perspectives, the 13MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision has users covered when they need to fit more of the scene in view, or capture fine details in extreme close-ups. In the front, a 32MP hi-res selfie cam with auto focus creates brilliant shots. Taking content creation even further, the motorola edge offers new video and camera enhancements like Horizon Lock Stabilization, Video Portrait and Vlog Mode. The camera features also include Audio Zoom, which filters out ambient noise so consumers get the best sound quality when zooming in on a specific subject.

Cinematic entertainment experiences without borders

For those looking for edge-to-edge entertainment, consumers can truly immerse themselves in all their favorite content on the borderless 6.6″ pOLED display. The HDR10+ display meets cinematic standards for color range, brightness, color accuracy, and contrast level, so everything looks exactly as it should. And users can view it all in over a billion shades of true-to-life color with improved brightness and infinite contrast. 

When switching from one’s photos to games or other apps, users can look forward to a fast 144Hz refresh rate that adjusts automatically to optimize battery life. The beautiful display pairs perfectly with Dolby Atmos®, which delivers the ultimate immersive audio experience by adding more depth, clarity and details across your favorite entertainment. In addition, the device offers support for Motorola Spatial Sound. 

Charge faster and go farther

With the new motorola edge, users can stream, work and play without worrying about battery life, thanks to 68W TurboPower™ charging4 that gives you power for the day in just 10 minutes5,6 and a 4400mAh battery that gives you over 30 hours of power for all the things you want to do

Users can also refuel by using up to 15W wireless charging4, or give a little battery life to a friend with 5W wireless power sharing.

Enjoy powerhouse performance

Powering all of these meaningful experiences is the MediaTek Dimensity 7030 chipset. Users can connect to blazing-fast 5G7 and Wi-Fi networks, including Wi-Fi 6E. This enables lightning-fast file transfers, high-resolution videos and peak download speeds up to 4.6 Gbps. Equipped with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage8, consumers can expect smooth performance and the ability to hold even more of their favorite content. Users can also unleash the full power of their smartphone with Ready For wireless connection9 and PC compatibility10.

The motorola edge runs on Android 13 and offers new security and software features for enhanced protection and safety.

say hello to the infinitely inspiring new motorola edge+

Today, the new motorola edge+ 2023 arrives in North America, featuring boundless performance, a triple high-res camera system, massive battery and superfast charging – all contained within a uniquely beautiful endless edge design. A device built to empower consumers with a truly premium smartphone experience, the new edge+ elevates all the ways you can consume, create, and connect.

flawless design meets boundless performance

The new motorola edge+ enters North America’s premium product portfolio with a flawless, quad-curved, endless edge design crafted for unparalleled comfort. It features a virtually borderless 6.7” pOLED display so the focus is on the device content— not bezels or smudges.

Anti-fingerprint coating on the front and velvet anti-glare glass inlay on the back make the motorola edge+ equally as beautiful as it is comfortable in hand. Both sides of the device are protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® for extra protection against scratches, sharp contact, and drops. Plus, IP68 provides underwater protection1 up to 1.5 meters of fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

On the inside, the new motorola edge+ features the Snapdragon® 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, which features a CPU delivering 35% faster performance and 40% better power efficiency, and a GPU with 25% better performance compared with its predecessor. With this platform, consumers will enjoy a smoother experience with applications running without lag and improved power efficiency that optimizes battery life.

every moment captured in incredible detail

To capture breathtaking images and videos, the motorola edge+ has a triple high-res camera system. The 50MP high-res main camera features OIS, essential for shake-free photos. It also includes instant all-pixel focus, which provides 32x more focusing pixels compared to traditional PDAF, resulting in faster, more accurate performance in any light2. The device also comes with a 50MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision and a 12MP 2x telephoto portrait camera, so users can capture everything from stunning landscapes to extreme close-ups and more flattering portraits. For selfies, the motorola edge+ features a 60MP camera with the Snapdragon Cognitive Image Signal Processor, which uses advanced AI to divide each scene into different segments. This ensures elements like the sky, buildings, landscapes, and skin tones are optimized independently for greater color accuracy and a photo that is more true to life.

Consumers can also record cinematic-quality videos directly on their device, whether in crystal-clear 8K resolution or in 4K HDR10+, to pack over a billion shades of color into their footage. Additionally, Motorola is introducing software features that bring this device’s exceptional camera hardware to life, including new video shooting modes to inspire creativity, such as:

Night Vision: When shooting videos in low-light environments, users can switch to Night Vision mode for video to capture brighter footage with more detail, better clarity, and more accurate color.

Horizon Lock Stabilization: When engaging in extreme sports like mountain biking or skiing, this feature keeps the user’s shots stabilized and locked onto the horizon — even while rotating the smartphone up to a full 360° during action scenes.

Auto Focus Tracking: Users can enable this feature to keep the subject crystal-clear and in focus even when it’s in motion throughout the frame.

Portrait (bokeh): In Video Mode, users can select Portrait Video , a bokeh setting, to automatically create soft-focus backgrounds in your videos. It utilizes a new AI-based algorithm to create a beautiful, cinematic blur effect behind the subject.

Hello camera: multiple enhancements are available for Motorola’s latest premium devices

Capturing photos and videos, in a quick, effortless way is a must-have for smartphone users. In fact, more than 90% of consumers are using the camera in the automatic mode, which means they simply open the app, point and shoot. Knowing how important it is to capture these notable moments on the fly, Motorola is bringing new camera software updates to its portfolio.

Keeping photographers ahead of the curve, these new updates contribute to the exceptional triple high-res camera system on the motorola edge 40 pro. The main 50MP camera offers OIS, instant all-pixel focus, and large 2.0um ultra pixels that help capture photos that are crystal-clear in any light. The camera system also includes a 50MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision, 60MP front camera with Quad Pixel technology and a 12MP telephoto portrait camera with 2x optical zoom, so that consumers can take breathtaking content of everything – from stunning landscapes to extreme closeups, and even more flattering shots of people.

The camera features and what they’re all about

From image quality enhancements to new capabilities, Motorola is releasing a combination of video and camera improvements across the entire camera system. Internal data revealed that 70% of videos recorded with Motorola smartphones are less than 60 seconds. So, to help users capture content that is both momentary and memorable, Motorola has introduced a new set of features to take videos to the next level:

– Horizon Lock Stabilization: Photographers can now use the new “Horizon Lock” feature to keep the footage stabilized and automatically locked onto the horizon, even while rotating up to a full 360°. This is great for action scenarios where there would be heavy camera movement like skateboarding, skiing or kayaking.

– Video Auto Focus Tracking: Users can enable this feature to keep their subject crystal-clear and in focus even when it’s in motion throughout the frame. For example, if recording a video of a child running around, and another person enters the scene, the focus will stay locked on the original subject.

– Video Portrait (bokeh): Consumers can take videos like a professional by creating a beautiful soft focus background behind their subject. This AI-based effect is ideal for users who want a singular subject as their focal point.

– Video Night Vision: When shooting videos in low-light environments, consumers can switch to Night Vision mode for video to capture brighter footage with more detail, better clarity, and more accurate color. The AI-based algorithm applies lighting techniques to low-light scenarios, increasing the overall brightness and decreasing noise at the same time.

– Vlog mode: Motorola’s Dual Capture feature has been enhanced even more for videos. Now, when users select the Vlog mode audio icon, the picture-in-picture window only appears when voice is detected from the front side. And when someone isn’t speaking, the window automatically disappears. This allows customers to easily add commentary while recording.

Additionally, consumers can expect brilliant images and videos when using certain social media applications, which now support secondary cameras like ultrawide and telephoto, as well as features like Dual Capture, directly within apps, if applicable.

These new camera features are available in selected motorola edge smartphones, including the new motorola edge+.

Introducing the new motorola edge 40 pro: flawless design meets unbounded performance

The design of edge 40 pro is crafted for unparalleled comfort, curved on every side and with every edge to reach symmetrical perfection. It features a borderless display so the focus is on the device content— not bezels or smudges. With anti-fingerprint coating on the front and velvet anti-glare glass inlay on the back make the edge 40 pro equally as beautiful as it is comfortable in hand. Both sides of the device are protected by Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus® for extra protection against scratches, sharp contact, and drops. Each side is exquisitely blended into a thin, precision-cut aluminum frame and even the camera housing takes on a bold new look, while still fitting seamlessly into the overall phone design. Plus, IP68 provides underwater protectionup to 1.5 meters in freshwater for up to 30 minutes, which means users no longer need to panic if their device accidentally gets dropped in water. The borderless 6.67” FHD+ pOLED display comes with a speedy 165Hz refresh rate for seamless scrolling, gaming, and switching between tasks.

On top of its design, the new motorola edge 40 pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Mobile Platform, which features a CPU delivering 35% faster CPU performance and 40% better power efficiency, and a GPU with 25% better performance compared with its predecessor.

With 256GB of built-in storage2, there is ample room for photos, movies, songs, apps, and games.

Capture breathtaking details with a triple high-res camera system

Motorola’s newest edge smartphone arrives with a triple high-res camera system to capture breathtaking images and videos. The 50MP high-res camera features OIS, essential for shake-free photos, and instant all-pixel focus, which provides 32x more focusing pixels compared to traditional PDAF, resulting in faster, more accurate performance in any light3. The edge 40 pro also comes with a 50MP ultrawide camera with Macro Vision and a 12MP 2x telephoto portrait camera, so users can capture everything from stunning landscapes to extreme close-ups and flattering shots of people.

For selfies, the edge 40 pro features a 60MP camera with Snapdragon’s Cognitive Image Signal Processor, which uses advanced AI to divide each scene into different segments. This ensures elements like the sky, buildings, landscapes, and skin tones are optimized independently for greater color accuracy and a photo that is more true to life.

With this new smartphone, consumers can also record cinematic-quality videos directly on their device, whether in crystal-clear 8K resolution or in 4K HDR10+, to pack over a billion shades of color into their footage. 

Additionally, Motorola is introducing software features that bring this device’s exceptional camera hardware to life, including new video shooting modes to inspire creativity, such as:

Video Night Vision: When shooting videos in low-light environments, users can switch to Night Vision mode for video to capture brighter footage with more detail, better clarity, and more accurate color.

Horizon Lock Stabilization: When engaging in extreme sports like mountain biking or skiing, this feature keeps the user’s shots stabilized and locked onto the horizon — even while rotating the smartphone up to a full 360° during action scenes.

Video Auto Focus Tracking: Users can enable this feature to keep the subject crystal-clear and in focus even when it’s in motion throughout the frame.

Video Portrait (bokeh): In Video Mode, users can select Video Portrait, a bokeh setting, to automatically blur the background of videos using a new AI-based algorithm for a beautiful, soft-focus background behind the subject.

On top of these features, expect stunning images and videos when using certain social media applications, which now support specific Motorola camera functions like Dual Capture, ultrawide, and telephoto directly from the apps.
