Motorola has released a new operating system update for the 2019 Razr, bringing it up to Android 11. The OS that began rolling out to Pixels in September 2020 became available for the Razr today.
While it may appear as though the update for the 2019 Razr is far too late, Motorola’s updates page indicates that Android 11 began rolling out to the much improved 2020 Razr 5G sometime between April and July.
For a first-gen device, receiving the update only a few months after its successor isn’t too shabby, despite the fact that receiving it nearly a year after it began rolling out is pretty slow.
Motorola’s update issues, on the other hand, are not limited to its foldable devices. Many of its recent phones come with a two-year security update guarantee, with some higher-end models receiving only one major OS update.
Given that the Razr already received an Android 10 upgrade (in May 2020), today’s update brings the Razr’s feature count to two, which is more than Motorola promises for some of its non-folding phones.
It should be, given Motorola’s promise of two years of security updates for between USD 160 and $400, and the 2019 Razr’s launch price of USD 1,500. This is not to say, however, that a $400 phone should receive only two years of updates.
Even so, for those still rocking the original Razr reboot, this is an update they previously lacked.
