Motorola resurrects the RAZR as a foldable Android phone
November 14, 2019

It will cost you $1,500.

Undoubtedly on the of the most iconic mobile phones ever released, the Motorola RAZR was a status symbol back when it was at the height of its popularity. Now, they’re bringing the RAZR with the same flip design but now comes with a foldable screen that runs Android.

There are two screens on the RAZR – outside you will find a 2.7-inch Quick View screen where you’ll get to see notifications along with other status icons for battery, date, time and weather. You can also access Google Assistant even when the smartphone is closed.

Opening the RAZR will reveal the large 6.2-inch foldable display with a 2142-by-876 pixel resolution. Motorola calls this screen ‘Flex View’ OLED that also comes in a 21:9 aspect ratio. It will have a notch where the 5-megapixel front-facing camera is placed.

From the outside, you will find the other camera which comes in at 16-megapixels which the company says support ‘Night Vision’. The bottom bump of the RAZR will have the fingerprint sensor along with the USB-C port used for charging.

Inside, the RAZR will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 710 CPU with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. It runs Android 9 Pie out of the box, so we’re sure it’s bound to get Android 10 in the future. Lastly, there’s a 2510 mAh battery and support for 15W TurboPower charging. 

Unfortunately, the Motorola RAZR is a Verizon exclusive, and there is no word as to when it will arrive in the international markets. The Android foldable will be available on January 9th for $1,500.
