Motorola Brings Back the Original Razr with a Foldable Display

Motorola RAZR 2019

The Lenovo-owned Motorola today announced the Motorola Razr with a 2019 twist. The phone is a reincarnation of the original Moto Razr that was released in 2004 but this time around, it comes with a foldable display.

In the world of Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X, the Motorola Razr’s flip phone design actually makes a lot of sense. When folded, the phone becomes extremely compact and pocketable. For quick access to notifications, there’s a 2.7-inch Quick View display as well. Flip the phone open and one is greeted with a 6.2-inch Flex View display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The chin at the bottom of the phone houses a fingerprint scanner and a bottom-firing speaker.

The zero-air hinge of the Motorola Razr ensures that when folded, the phone sits completely flush. The display is also not completely folded in half which ensures there’s no crease on it.

Other specs of the Razr are decidedly mid-range and include an octa-core Snapdragon 710 chip, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, 16MP f/1.7 primary camera located below the Quick view display at the front, 5MP f/2.2 camera located in the dewdrop notch above the 6.2-inch foldable display, and a 2510mAh battery with 18W fast charging support.

The Motorola Razr launches exclusively on Verizon’s network in January 2020 after which it will also release in India, Canada, Australia, and parts of Europe. The good thing is that the Motorola RAZR is among the cheapest foldable phones in the market with a price tag of $1,500.

Do you think Samsung and other companies should adopt a similar design for their foldable phones instead of what we have seen so far with the Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X?
