The motorola razr 50 ultra delivers the industry’s largest external display at 4.0” and features AI advancements throughout the entire device for a fully enhanced user experience. Offering endless ways to capture content, supported by the new moto ai powered camera system.

“Continuing to build on our global partnerships we are proud to bring the device in Pantone Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz, as well as Spring Green, and Midnight Blue, all available in soft vegan leather. And through our relationship with Google, we are introducing the Gemini app which will be accessible directly from the external display. We are excited to be industry leaders in providing advanced AI both across our moto ai and Google AI capabilities”.
