Motorola’s Razr Returns As a Foldable Android Phone

Posted on November 14, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware, Mobile with 24 Comments

Motorola’s iconic Razr is back. And this time around, it’s a modern, full-blown foldable Android phone that’s actually really cool.

The new Razr features a design similar to the iconic Razr device, but Motorola has streamlined the design to be sleeker. The updated design gives you more of a modern feel, while also having the retro look that so many Razr fans will love.

Motorola worked with Lenovo to engineer the new Razr, and the hinge powering the foldable display is pretty amazing considering it doesn’t leave any gap when you close the device, and the displays lay flat when you open the device up. In terms of specs, there isn’t a lot going on. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 2510mAh battery.

In terms of the display, the main foldable screen is a 6.2-inch pOLED display with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and resolution of 2142×876 pixels. There’s also a secondary 2.7-inch display on the front that you can use to take selfies, etc. The cameras on the device include a single 16MP camera and a 5MP “internal” camera. There’s also a fingerprint scanner on the device.

Motorola’s take on the foldable Android phone is actually really cool, but I just wish the device had a more powerful processor. But if the specs aren’t an issue for you, you will probably love this thing. Motorola also has a Retro Razr mode on the device that applies a classic Razr UI to the entire device that will give you that old school feeling.

The device will be available for purchase for $1,499 in January 2020.
