Motorola teases its foldable RAZR phone reveal for November 13th

  Motorola teases its foldable RAZR phone reveal for November 13th “You’re going to flip” is one tagline, according to CNETWhile it’s hard to tell for sure, it sure looks like we’re seeing the RAZR’s signature hinge pulled away from the edge of the handset to reveal a different sort of hinge underneath — perhaps to better house a true foldable screen like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold handset.

Latest in Gear. Motorola invite hints at a ' reinvented ' RAZR . Earlier this year a Motorola exec confirmed to Engadget that the company was hard at work on foldable phone technology, and rumors about a new RAZR -branded device just won't go away.

Earlier this year a Motorola exec confirmed to Engadget that the company was hard at work on foldable phone technology, and rumors about a new RAZR-branded device just won't go away. Now CNET reports it's sending out invites for a November 13th event in Los Angeles that promise the "highly-anticipated unveiling of a reinvented icon."

Along with embedded GIF of something that looks like a hinged mobile device, it's not hard to figure out what we'll see, but the exact details of how it will work are still unclear. A patent filing uncovered earlier this year suggested a thin device that looks a lot like the old-school RAZR phones, while the Wall Street Journal pointed out sources saying a $1,500 device could hit the market as a Verizon exclusive.

Since then, Huawei has delayed its Mate X and while Samsung's Galaxy Fold is rolling out, it has experienced its own issues. Can Lenovo/Motorola get the flexible device right, and perhaps bring back vertically-oriented smartphones before Essential has the chance to? We'll apparently find out next month.

Motorola flips for its futuristic foldable phone .
NEW YORK (AP) — Motorola is bracing for the future by returning to the past. The company is adapting its historical flip-phone design for a smartphone with a foldable screen. Samsung, Huawei and others have phones that fold like a book and offer a double-sized display when unfolded. Motorola’s new Razr phone, on the other hand, will be smaller than a regular smartphone until unfolded to its full 6.2 inch size. The idea is to make the phone more compact for carrying and storing when folded and not in use. © Provided by The Associated Press This undated product image provided by Motorola by Motorola’s new Razr phone.
