“It’s not even waterproof, and it’s $1.6 million.” Samsung Takes Over, Motorola Fails Again?

“When is Motorola going to come back?” “They’re going out of business again.”

After falling from grace, Motorola is looking to make a comeback with a foldable smartphone. The company is launching the Motorola Razer 40 Ultra against Samsung토토사이트. Motorola’s foldable phone will be released in the domestic market.

Sammobile, an overseas IT media outlet, revealed the leaked specifications of the Motorola Razer 40 Ultra. Once the specs were released, the criticisms continued. In particular, water resistance, which has become an essential feature, is not as good as the one-year-old Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

According to SamMobile, the Motorola Razer 40 Ultra’s IP52 water resistance rating is lower than that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, and even lower than that of the two-year-old Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Water resistance is a very important specification for a foldable phone, and the Motorola Razer 40 Ultra has been criticized for falling far short of expectations.

The Razer 40 Ultra’s display measures 170.83 x 73.95 x 6.99 millimeters. When folded, it measures 88.42 x 73.95 x 15.1 millimeters. It’s slightly larger than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4.

The external display is a 3.6-inch quick-view pOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The smartphone’s performance is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ first generation, which is the same as the Galaxy Z Flip 4.

Memory is 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and the battery is a 3800mAh battery with 33W fast charging and 5W wireless charging support.

The price is also an issue. The Razer 40 Ultra is expected to cost around 1.64 million won, which is more expensive than the previously released Galaxy Z Flip 4. This is unusually expensive for a Chinese-made smartphone that uses low prices as a weapon to gain market share.

Motorola plans to bring the Razer 40 Ultra to South Korea, Samsung’s home market, in a bid to go head-to-head with Samsung in the foldable phone battle. The Korean market is known as the “graveyard of foreign phones,” and many skeptics believe that Motorola will not be able to create enough of a buzz to threaten Samsung’s foldable phones.

In particular, the specs are criticized for not meeting expectations, such as poor water resistance. Korean consumers have a very low preference for Chinese smartphones. Motorola has fallen from grace and has been replaced by Lenovo in China. Experts say that Motorola’s expensive smartphones are not appealing to Korean consumers.

Meanwhile, Motorola will introduce a new foldable phone, the Laser 40 series, in the U.S. on June 1 (local time) and will launch it in Korea in the third quarter. Samsung Electronics’ new foldable phones, including the Galaxy Z Flip 5, will be released around the same time.
