Much attention was given to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, but Samsung isn’t the sole one doing foldable phones, of course. Additionally to Huawei and Xiaomi, Motorola once launched its first then far only foldable phone (unless you think about the 5G refresh) that attempted to revive the long-lasting Razr brand of old. Unfortunately, that foldable clamshell appeared to are forgotten even by Motorola. However, the corporate is finally making up for a lost time by rolling out Android 11 for the non-5G Motorola Razr.
The original Motorola Razr was announced in 2019 but launched in early 2020. Android 11, on the other hand, was launched in September 2020. The Razr 5G got its Android 11 update back in April, so it’s somewhat puzzling that the OG Razr is getting the update this late.
Then again, Motorola won’t have favoured the primary Razr, albeit it came first. Not only did it lack 5G connectivity at a time when many mid-range to high-end phones offered it, but its specs were also well below the worth it had been posing for. The fact that the more powerful Razr 5G launched shortly after with nearly an equivalent tag proved that was the case.
The large Android 11 update slowly rolls down Verizon customers and carries the July security updates alongside it. That, too, maybe a month late, but that’s not exactly surprising considering the testing period involved. Still, better late than never, mainly when Motorola is engaged.
The company’s public image hasn’t exactly been at its highest within the past months, mainly when Android updates are concerned. Additionally, there was a quick debacle over the guaranteed updates for its latest Motorola Edge 20 series due to its already slow and inconsistent pace. This Android 11 is, in fact, the Razr’s second upgrade and, supported Motorola’s standard policy, probably its last.
