Samsung and Motorola are going all in on foldable phones.
It's time to compare the specs of the new Galaxy Z Flip to the new Motorola Razr.
Don't forget, specs aren't always reflective of real world performance.
So this is just how they compare on paper.
Let's start with the design, because these phones look unique and honestly, the foldable clamshell design is probably the main reason why you want one.
The Z Flip is a touch smaller when folded than the Razor, which echoes the design of the classic Razor V3 from 2004.
The Razr tips the scales at 205 grams or 7.23 ounces while the Z flip is lighter at 183 grams, or 6.45 ounces.
Inside Samsung's phone has a 6.7 inch AMOLED with foldable glass while the Razr has a 6.2 inch POLED screen with a plastic coating Both have a similar 21 by 9 aspect ratio.
The biggest difference though, is how that screen folds.
So let's talk about the hinge.
On the Z flip Samsung calls it the hideaway hinge.
It's rated for over 200,000 folds, and has a layer of nylon fibers inside to keep particles like the Dust and dirt out.
That hinge also has another trick.
You'll be able to keep the phone open like you would a laptop if you want to watch a movie, or take a selfie, and flex mode splits the display so you can view images of videos on the top half, and control them on the bottom half.
The Razor has two steel plates under the screen that slide to make room for the display when it's closed.
To avoid creating a crease, it has a small tear drop fold when closed.
When you open the phone, the plates push against the screen to make it fully flat.
Motorola has not released an official fold rating for the Razor Hinge.
Both have an external display, so you can see notifications at a glance, but they do work in a slightly different way.
The Z flips 1.1 inch cover display is a lot smaller than the raises and shows notifications like the time while the razor has a 2.7 inch 600 by 800 resolution display.
You can use to check notifications, change settings or even use the front.
Speaking of cameras, the Z flip goes for quantity.
There are 212 megapixel rear cameras one regular at f1.8 and one ultra wide at f2.2 with a smallest sensor quality front facing hole punch 10 megapixel camera is for selfies and video calls The razor you have won a 16 megapixel rear camera with an aperture of F 1.7.
There's also a five megapixel front facing camera and both phones record in 4k.
Time to talk about all the other important internals.
There's eight gigabytes of RAM and the Snapdragon eight fifty five plus processor on the Z flip versus six gigabytes of RAM and the oldest Snapdragon seven ten on the razor.
The flip also has double the storage of the razor at two hundred and fifty six gigabytes.
As the batteries, the Z Flip has a Dual 3,300mAh battery, while the RAZR has a 2,510mAh battery inside.
The Z Flip has wireless charging that also supports wireless power share to charge other devices like Galaxy buds, but there's no wireless charging on the RAZR.
And both have 4G support although the razor will get a 5G version later in the year as the colors you'll be able to get the Z flip in purple or black plus a gold finish in certain parts of the world but the razor is just in black for the time being, with a gold version arriving in spring.
So where can you get the phones?
Well the Z Flip will go on sale on February 14.
Either unlocked, through Sprint, or AT&T in the US.
While the Razor is available now although it is tied to Verizon also in the US.
And the big one, price.
The Z Flip will sell for 1,380 US dollars and the Razor is 1,500 As always, numbers on paper don't necessarily reflect real world performance.
This is a spec comparison.
So you'll have to wait and see how the Z flip really compares to the Razor once it's released.
