Foldable Motorola Razr is now official with a clamshell design



Oh Boy! It’s finally official & it’s impressive. Well, that was my reaction when Motorola unveiled its Foldable Motorola Razr today. This is a phone that brings back memories of the old Motorola Razr V3 released back in 2004. That’s fifteen years ago!

The new Motorola Razr comes with that same clamshell design but with modern touches that include the Foldable display, something that many smartphone makers are working on & we have already seen phones from brands like Samsung & Huawei with foldable designs.

Just like the OG Motorola Razr, the new one has two displays, the main one on the inside & the other on the outside. The panel on the inside is the one that is foldable & it is a vertically folding display, something we haven’t seen yet in any phone from any smartphone company.

The display on the inside is a 6.2-inch pOLED panel with a resolution of 2142 x 876 pixels & 21:9 aspect ratio. The display on the outside is a 2.7-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 600 x 800 pixels.

Motorola calls the second display a “QuickView Display,” & this small panel allows you to do things like Play Music, take selfies, see the notifications & more. So, you don’t always need to open the phone to do all these on the main display on the inside. Now, whatever is there on the QuickView screen opens on the bigger display seamlessly when you open the Foldable Motorola Razr.

While the phone isn’t Water Resistant, it has a Water Repellent design, so minor splashes won’t be a huge issue. There is a single rear camera below the QuickView Display & there is a thick part at the bottom that has everything from the battery to the fingerprint scanner. There is no SIM slot, so it is the first eSIM-only device in the world.

There is a USB Type-C port on the bottom & the device doesn’t have a headphone jack.

Talking about other specifications, there is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SOC clocked at 2.2GHz & 6GB RAM alongside 128GB internal storage. You cannot expand the storage. The battery underneath is a small 2,510mAH unit, which seems way too small for a phone with two displays. There is 15W TurboCharging support, as well.

As mentioned above, there is a single rear camera on this phone & it is a 16 Megapixel Sony IMX 519 sensor, which is the same camera sensor present on OnePlus 6 that launched last year. It is a camera with f/1.7 aperture, 1.22-micron pixel size, EIS, & Dual Pixel AF.

When you unfold the phone, there is a 5 Megapixel camera present in the notch on top with f/2.0 aperture & 1.12um pixel size.

The Foldable Motorola Razr comes in a single color, i.e., Noir Black & is priced at 1,500 USD. Now, you won’t be able to buy it in 2019, as it would be available in January 2020.
