- With Android 12 just around the corner
Considering Samsung and LG have announced new foldable phones, you may have forgotten about Motorola's - but someone seemingly cares - a new OS update for the 2019 Razr has gone live, bringing it from Android 10 to Android 11. Exactly. The same OS that Pixels started getting in September of 2020 is the one now available for Razr.
This update for the 2019 Razr may seem woefully late, but consider this: according to a report from Android Police, Motorola has had Android 11 rolling out to its much better 2020 Razr 5G since April. Being able to update the Razr just a few months after its successor isn't too shabby (though approaching a year after it began rolling out is pretty difficult).
Unfortunately, Motorola's update issues are not limited to its foldable phones. Among its recent phones, only some higher-end models come with a guarantee of two years of security updates. The Razr already got an update to Android 10 (in May of 2020), so today's update brings it to two updates, which is much better than what Motorola has promised for some of its non-folding phones. That makes sense as Motorola offers two years of security updates for phones priced between $160 and $400 - the Razr 2019 launched for $1,500. (Although a $400 phone shouldn't only get two years of updates.)
Nevertheless, for those with old Razr reboots, this is an update they didn't have before.
