Motorola is at it again with its love of naming its smartphones differently depending on where they are sold. If you live in the U.S. and want to buy the latest 2024 versions of its compact foldable smartphones, you have the choice of either the Motorola Razr 2024 or the Motorola Razr Plus 2024, but if you’re in the U.K. and want to do the same, you’ll get either the Motorola Razr 50 or Motorola Razr 50 Ultra.

This will explain why you may see both mentioned when searching for the phones online and why you may see reviews of the Razr 2024 and not the Razr 50. It’s all a bit confusing, and it’s all Motorola’s own doing. However, apart from the names, are they actually different phones? Luckily, there’s an easy answer to this: No, they’re exactly the same.

That’s right, whether you can buy the Razr 50 Ultra or the Razr Plus 2024, you’re getting the same smartphone. They both have a 6.9-inch pOLED internal screen, a 4-inch pOLED cover screen, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 processor, a 4,000mAh battery, and a pair of 50-megapixel cameras. It’s the same with the Razr 50 and Razr 2024, where the two phones share the same specification, consisting of a MediaTek Dimensity 7300X processor, a 6.9-inch inner screen, a 3.6-inch cover screen, and a 4,200mAh battery.

It seems Motorola will offer the same range of bright, fun colors for both the models too. The Razr 50 Ultra will come in Midnight Blue, Spring Green, Peach Fuzz, and Hot Pink colors, while the Razr 50 will come in Koala Grey, Beach Sand, and Spritz Orange. You’ll get the same color choice in the U.S. when you buy the Razr 2024 or the Razr Plus 2024. Is that it? There really are no differences at all, apart from the names and where they will be sold?

Almost, as there are some differences in release date to understand.

The $1,000 Motorola Razr Plus 2024 and $700 Motorola Razr 2024 will be available to preorder on July 10 and will be ready for release on July 24. In the U.K., the Motorola Razr 50 Ultra will cost 999 British pounds and will be available to buy on June 26 through Motorola’s online store. It will be released through carriers on July 19. The Motorola Razr 50 doesn’t have a final release date yet but is expected to be available in “early July” for 799 British pounds.

That’s it. The Motorola Razr 2024 is the Motorola Razr 50, the Motorola Razr Plus 2024 is the Motorola Razr 50 Ultra, and vice versa. Thanks, Motorola, for all the unnecessary confusion.

Motorola is doing something big on June 25

Motorola has announced its next big event, which will take place on June 25, 2024. With the sayings “Flip the script” and “Intelligence inside and out,” we can safely assume the event will showcase the next Razr lineup and some AI features.

In its post on X (formerly Twitter), Motorola simply teases that its next event is coming next week. Again, the slogan for this is “Flip the script,” so it’s pretty much guaranteed that we are going to see the Razr 2024 and Razr Plus 2024, as those devices are teased in the clip, too.

The Motorola Razr just got some tough competition

Honor has launched its very first foldable clamshell phone in China in the form of the Honor Magic V Flip. Though Honor has already been an established player in the foldable market with the Magic V series, this is the brand’s first flip phone, which joins the likes of Motorola Razr Plus, Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5, Oppo Find N3, and more.

The Honor Magic V Flip is quite an impressive flip phone. It appears to be ahead of the competition with the large 4-inch cover display, which is the largest we’ve seen yet, and it provides a unique dual-screen experience.

The new Motorola Edge (2024) looks like an incredible Pixel 8a alternative
Someone holding the Motorola Edge (2024).

Motorola is a brand that offers a wide variety of smartphones across all price points, whether you’re looking for a budget-friendly option or something more along the lines of a flagship device. The latest offering from Motorola is the Motorola Edge (2024), and it looks like a really solid choice if you want some power at a budget-friendly price.

With the Motorola Edge (2024), you have a pretty standard glass slab form factor smartphone. Motorola adds a touch of elegance with a beautiful Midnight Blue vegan leather back that should be a lot more grippy than your typical glass phone. It also has an IP68 rating, so it can withstand dust, dirt, and sand while being able to be submerged up to 1.5 meters in freshwater for up to 30 minutes.
