Motorola Razr 2019 announced: Motorola offers a nostalgic look into the future

But the hot pink Motorola RAZR, in its revolutionary sleek flip form, evaded me.

The new device features a 6.2in screen which folds together when closed, with another, smaller screen to display notifications on its outer shell. In fairness, though, Motorola says it'll continue to evaluate which apps could be coaxed into working well on that secondary screen, and that's really all I can ask for. Well, those days are coming back with the new foldable Razr. The selfie shooter is 5 MP f/2.0 with no flash, the screen is used to light up your face in the dark.

By now, it's clear that Motorola's first foldable has its share of limitations, perhaps too many for some people.


If you've been following the news about the new Motorola Razr, then you don't have to read another story about an unannounced phone.

The Razr sports Motorola's ubiquitous "nanocoating" waterproofing, so it should be as splashproof as other Moto mid-rangers. Motorola's Moto Razr runs on mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor with 6GBof RAM and 128GBstorage. Lastly, Motorola Razr 2019 weighs just 205 grams. There is a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the chin. The 2.7-inch screen has a resolution of 600 x 800p and 4:3 aspect ratio. However, there 2,510mAh battery inside certainly isn't huge by today's standards, so we'll have to put that to the test.

Motorola is describing its new Razr as an "impossible" feat of engineering, with a fold that closes flush against the other side. Interestingly enough, Moto Razr comes with e-SIM. It will be available in Verizon stores, at select Walmart stores, and on motorola.com in January, and in Canada in early 2020.


There's only one model of the Razr, and it'll cost you $1,500 for 128GB of storage.

"With the new Razr we had to rethink how to engineer a phone", said Glenn Schultz, the firm's head of product development. The phone comes with Razr earbuds, a premium USB-C headset powered by Denon Audio. At the unveil event, the Lenovo-owned company did not share any details on the worldwide availability of the Razr.

The Motorola RAZR has evolved into a clamshell phone with a flexible display. Let us know your thoughts below.
