The much-awaited Motorola Razr 40 Ultra is now official, and with this phone, Motorola has taken the clamshell foldable segment to a different level. In our previous article, we discussed the Motorola Razr 40, which is more like a mid-range clamshell foldable phone with a mid-range chipset & a tiny cover display. But, the Razr 40 Ultra is a completely different-looking clamshell phone, primarily due to the huge cover display, the largest ever on a clamshell foldable phone.

Let’s talk about the cover display first because it is the main USP of this phone. This is a 3.6-inch pOLED display with a 1066 x 1056 pixels resolution, 10-bit color output, HDR10+ support, up to 144Hz refresh rate, and 1100 nits peak brightness. Such a large display means you can do a lot without even opening the phone to use the main display. Motorola has partnered with some companies like Spotify to optimize the apps for this cover display so that they work seamlessly.

And this does not mean you can only run a few apps on this display. In fact, a setting lets you force an app to run on this cover display. Simply put, you can run any app on the cove display of Razr 40 Ultra.

As for the design, Motorola Razr 40 Ultra has Gorilla Glass Victus on both the front and rear (Vegan leather in case of a Magenta color option). The frame is made of 7000-series aluminum. The weight is 188.5g (Black & Blue colors) and 184.5g (Magenta color). The phone is 6.99mm thick when unfolded and 15.1mm when folded.

There are stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, triple microphones, and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
