Today Motorola has finally rolled the Android 11 update to the Motorola Razr 5G globally which brings all the Android 11 features and customization. In this guide, we will show you how to install the Android 11 firmware file manually on Motorola Razr 5G.
Motorola Razr 5G – Device Overview
Although the Motorola Razr 5G brings back the nostalgia of the icon Razr phone, the specs under the hood do not justify its ultra-premium $1400 price tag. It comes powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset which is the best mid-range 5G chipset from Qualcomm and is not the flagship processor. This is coupled with 8GB of RAM and comes with 256GB of onboard storage with no dedicated card slot for memory expansion. The display on the phone is a foldable P-OLED panel that sizes 6.2-inches.
The Motorola Razr 5G also sports a secondary display on the outside which is 2.7 inches and has a 600 x 800 pixels resolution. The phone camera with Android 10 out of the box and runs almost stock Android with some Motorola apps. Coming to the cameras, there is a not-so-good 48MP lens that is capable of recording 4K@30fps, 1080p@30/60/120fps. For selfies, there is a 20MP f/2.2 lens capable of recording 1080p@30fps. The fingerprint scanner on the Motorola Razr 5G is mounted on the back of the phone inside the logo. Under the hood, the battery is of surprisingly pretty less capacity and it stands at 2800 mAh. It supports 15W charging which is no close to its counterparts.
