The flagship device, the motorola razr+/razr 40 ultra, is the "thinnest flippable smartphone in the industry when flipped closed." (Check out its promotional video, which was leaked a week ago, here.) It has been powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 Mobile Platform. It comes with Flex View technology, enabling users to stand the device at various angles for activities such as cooking, video chatting, and hands-free recording.

The external display offers custom panels for easy access to games, news, weather, and notifications. With a 3.6" pOLED screen and refresh rates up to 144Hz, smooth scrolling and high-resolution content viewing are promised. The camera system includes a 12MP main camera with Instant Dual Pixel PDAF, a wide aperture for soft-focus backgrounds, OIS, and a 13MP ultrawide + macro vision lens for wider shots.

The iconic flip design of the razr+/razr 40 ultra aims to blend nostalgia with a modern, flexible form factor. The device incorporates a teardrop hinge, reducing creases when the display unfolds, combined with Ultra Thin Glass. Dolby Atmos audio technology enhances the multimedia experience, and the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor ensures powerful performance. Battery life is extended with a larger capacity and 30W TurboPower charging, along with wireless charging support.
