Motorola announces an Android 10 upgrade for the Razr 2020
The Motorola Razr 2020 presented a mass of contradictions for smartphone enthusiasts at its launch: a ~US$1400 device with a mid-range SoC? This is largely explained by the foldable display found in a clamshell form-factor for the first time. However, that did not completely excuse its shipping with Android 9.0 (Pie) for the entirety of its life-cycle thus far.
A new video from an official Motorola YouTube channel may show that this is in the process of being addressed, however. It showcases a build of Android 10 for the Razr 2020, which has been optimized for its nearly-novel phone category.
In other words, the device's secondary display, which is found on the "upper" half of the rear panel, can use numerous updated gestures and functions under the new upgrade. They include much more granular controls for the Razr's single main camera; a full keyboard for replies and expanded music controls. Therefore, it seems the user would hardly have to actually open the phone at all.
Should they do so, however, they would find a raft of Android 10-specific additions, including a system-wide dark theme and improved icon customization. Unfortunately, this video did not mention details on the nature of this software roll-out for the new Motorola Razr.
