Who says only K-pop artists can make a comeback? The iconic Motorola brand has finally returned to the Philippine mobile phone market.

Who says only K-pop artists can make a comeback? It’s time to say Hello Moto again, because the iconic Motorola brand has returned to the Philippine mobile phone market.

Lenovo Philippines is bringing the Motorola Razr 5G and Moto G 5G Plus to these shores. Both devices come with many firsts as well as classic features that longtime Motorola fans know and love. This includes the iconic clamshell design of the early 2000s, now powered by the blazing-fast connection of 5G.

Razr-sharp design

“Lenovo and Motorola both recognize the need to constantly innovate in this industry. The iconic clamshell design of the original Razr was way ahead of its time and made Motorola not only one of the biggest tech brands globally, but also a pop culture icon,” said Lenovo Philippines President and General Manager Michael Ngan in a press statement.

“With our vision, Smarter Technology for All, we aim at delivering smarter devices through innovative designs that perfectly meet consumer needs. Combining Motorola’s rich history with Lenovo’s innovation, we can create a unique smartphone experience that features only the latest technology that matters the most to our customers,” Ngan said.

A look that’s sure to get everyone’s attention, the historic “flip” design of the Razr is back and better than ever in the Motorola Razr 5G. The new hinge leaves no space in between when folded closed, making the phone as slim and compact as possible and more protected against dust and debris. In addition, the hinge is designed again to flip open with just one hand and has enough sturdiness to stay firm while open.

While folded, users can utilize the Razr 5G’s external 2.7-inch Quick View display that can now do more than just tell time and notify the user about incoming calls or messages. With the phone’s Android 10 OS, users can swipe up to access the home screen, right to use the camera, or left to call contacts and run apps.

The Razr 5G comes with four antennas that allow a 5G connection that can download content in just a few seconds. Combined with Qualcomm’s brand-new Snapdragon 765 processor, the Razr 5G provides powerful performance and incredible efficiency when it comes to browsing, streaming, or shopping online.

Reinventing the mid-tier smartphone

With the Moto G 5G plus, Motorola and Lenovo are breaking boundaries once again, changing what a mid-tier smartphone should be by allowing it to provide 5G for everyone.

At only Php16,990, the device is the most affordable 5G-enabled smartphone in the Philippines, in line with Lenovo’s mission of providing smarter technology for all and delivering devices that provide access to better opportunities, greater connectivity, and the ability to overcome limitations.

Coming in a 6.7-inch display, the Moto G 5G plus also has CinemaVision which allows the phone to show movies in their full 21:9 cinematic beauty. The display has a 90Hz screen refresh rate and an HDR10 feature that reduces screen tearing and displays motion smoother than ever while also delivering sharp contrast and vibrant colors. Furthermore, the phone has the Snapdragon 765 processor, making it one of the few mid-tier phones with this chip.

What sets apart the Moto G 5G Plus is its innovative six-camera setup which content creators are sure to enjoy.

Both the Motorola Razr 5G and Moto G 5G Plus will be available in the Philippines in December 2020 in all major electronics stores and authorized Lenovo resellers. The Motorola Razr 5G has a price of Php72,990, while the 8GB RAM variant of the Moto G 5G Plus will retail at Php16,990.
