We all remember the classic Motorola Razr V3 clamshell mobile phone from the early ages of the millennium. Now, in the age of foldable screens, Motorola reinvented the device and introduced the all-new Motorola Razr with a 6.2” foldable panel on the inside.
The specifications of the phone are rather unimpressive, aside from the inside display. The Razr runs on Snapdragon 710 and is coupled with 6 GB RAM and 128 gigs of storage. There are only two cameras on the phone – one on the outside of the flip part and another on the inside, tucked inside a notch (yes, really).
The main shooter is 16 MP f/1.7 with EIS, Dual Pixel AF, and Laser AF. It is coupled with dual-LED flash. The selfie shooter is 5 MP f/2.0 with no flash, the screen is used to light up your face in the dark.
The biggest talking point of this device is the foldable panel. It is pOLED with a 21:9 ratio and has the marketing name Cinemavision, although the resolution is HD – 2142 x 876 pixels. There is another Quick View screen on the outside of the device with a 2.7” gOLED panel and a resolution of 600 x 800 pixels.
The good thing about the secondary display is you can use it without unfolding the clamshell for almost all important features like calls, taking selfies, turning some basic settings off/on and use the Google Assistant.
Motorola equipped the Razr with a 2,510 mAh battery that should top up in no time with the 15W TurboPower charging. The OS is Android Pie and it comes with all the Google services you need.
Offered in one color – Noir Black – the Razr is reported by other media to cost $1,500. Motorola is yet to officially confirm the price and announce an actual launch date.
