Motorola flips for its futuristic foldable phone

  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.

The Motorola Razr flip phone is back, but now it’s an Android smartphone with a foldable display. The 2019 Razr keeps the same general form factor, but replaces the T-9 keypad and small LCD with a 6.2-inch, foldable plastic OLED panel and Android 9 Pie. It’ll cost $ 1 , 499 when it arrives in January of

Well, those days are back again with the new foldable Razr . Motorola has unveiled the device after The new Razr is a Verizon exclusive, and it'll cost you a whopping ,500 when it launches in early Hopefully they're good to help justify the $ 1 , 499 .99 price tag ( that 's .49 per month for two years).

Motorola hasn't released a true flagship device in quite some time, but that changes tonight. The Razr is back and keeps the classic flip phone design with a foldable twist. The 2019 Motorola Razr is essentially a normal smartphone that you can fold in half.

The Motorola Razr will be $1,499 at full cost and will officially launch in January. In the U.S., it will be exclusive to Verizon (preorders kick off on Dec. 26) and in Canada, it will be available unlocked.

It's the second major foldable, following Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which is available right now for $1,980.

So what makes the Motorola Razr special?

Motorola's new Razr leaks at the FCC ahead of tonight's event

  Motorola's new Razr leaks at the FCC ahead of tonight's event Motorola's expected Razr may have just been outed by the FCC.The images, first spotted by the website MySmartPrice, give a pretty detailed look at everything we should expect physically on the new Razr. While there aren't too many surprises from the prior leaks, the FCC images give us a clear look at the phone's front camera, USB-C port on the bottom and textured back cover.

Motorola Razr is finally official . The handset offers a new interpretation of the clamshell design. It features a Quick View display on the outside and a Full The camera department of the Motorola Razr features a 5MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture, while on the backs, there's a 16MP primary

Motorola is rebooting the iconic Razr flip phone as a 6.2-inch smartphone with a foldable display that gives the Lenovo-owned brand a unique selling The new device reprises the Motorola Razr name and looks like a modernized version of the original. It costs $ 1 , 499 and will be available for pre-order

Return of the flip phone

The Razr definitely has one of the more unique designs of any phone this year. It's a flip phone design that uses a new hinge and what Motorola calls a "Flex View" display. It's a 6.6-inch pOLED 2142x876 display that opts for a 21:9 ratio. It's fully foldable in a top-down format, unlike the Galaxy Fold, which closes from left to right or right to left.

With the clamshell form factor, the main display is protected when it's closed, and for when it's open and in use, there is an additional layer to protect against scratches. Motorola also designed the display with moveable metal support that should make it feel more firm than other plastic OLED displays. We'll need to test this in person. One note: There is a chin on the bottom of the display that will give you memories of flip phone days. It contains the fingerprint reader and will likely be a nice spot to get a grip on the Razr.

Lenovo's Motorola just announced a new Razr with a folding screen. It will cost $ 1 , 499 .99 and launches in January on Verizon in the U.S.; preorders Preorders will begin Dec. 26. The Razr is the latest example of the budding trend of phones with foldable screens. In addition to Samsung's Galaxy

The renewed edition of the original Razr phone from the yesteryear now comes with a foldable display. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X foldable phones, the Razr is a smaller device that is packed with mid-range specs and it is priced at $ 1 , 499 . Motorola Razr Specifications and

The clamshell design and outer shell is made from stainless steel and screams classic Razr. It comes in one color (Noir Black). And it's certainly a disappointment for those who had the classic Razr in pink or silver. Although there is a Quick View 2.7-inch gOLED 600x800 display on the front above the main 16-megapixel camera. It feels like an original Razr on steroids. And when closed, it's quite compact at just 72 millimeters wide and 94 millimeters tall. It's also 14 millimeters thick. Unfolded, it keeps the same width, but grows to 172 millimeters tall or 6.7 inches.

Most importantly, the hinge that powers the foldable experience is zero gap and Motorola made it in house. We've seen what can happen when these flexible displays are exposed to dust, and this aims to keep it tightly sealed. As a whole, the Razr has a water-resistant nanocoating that should be splash proof. However, in typical Motorola fashion, there is no IPX rating.

The Motorola Razr is back: Is this the foldable you were waiting for? Beyond that though, the Motorola Razr is a fairly standard smartphone with splash resistance (no official IP The phone goes on sale in the US starting January 2020. Unlocked, the phone will cost a steep $ 1 , 499 , but you can

When Motorola set out to build its first foldable , it went through 26 prototypes of different shapes, sizes and screen configurations before deciding to The RAZR 's folding mechanism is particularly ingenious: Rather than use a single big one like the Galaxy Fold , the RAZR has two smaller hinges

When unfolded, the main Flex View display should look similar to anyone who has used an Android. The Razr is running Android 9 Pie with a custom Motorola user interface that keeps things simple. Moto Actions are here and make use of gestures for easy access to core features. You can open the camera with a simple twist, and placing the phone face down will engage the do not disturb function. These are features that Motorola has become known for and stick with themes of giving you the power to do more, with an ease of use.

Things are different on the front with the Quick View display. Essentially, it's a much smaller window into the Razr that still provides access to several applications. And yes, it has continuity features as applications open on the Quick View will appear on the main Flex View screen. The Quick View display lets you control music playback, engage with the Google Assistant, take selfies, see notifications, and of course, easily view the time. I'm quite intrigued by this and look forward to testing it, but on paper, it seems similar to the Galaxy Fold's approach.

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.

2020 Motorola Razr . The main highlight of the new Razr is the plastic 6.2"OLED display that fold horizontally. The display has a notch at the top As per initial hands-on impressions, the display fold is invisible during usage, unlike the Samsung Fold . The company is confident of the foldable display

That 's why I 'm so excited for Motorola 's foldable Razr phone. Before I get too far into the foldable bashing rabbit hole, there are some benefits to a big square display. Many reviewers claim that using the big display with two hands means you’re more productive.

A 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 720 processor with 6 GBs of RAM powers the Razr. It seems like an odd choice, given we already have newer versions, but we haven't tested the Razr. Chances are, the phone has been in development for some time, but it's an odd choice. That is paired with 128 GBs of internal storage and there is no microSD card slot. The non-removable 2510mAh battery can be fast-charged with the included 15-watt TurboPower charger. And like most 2019 smartphones, it opts for a USB-C port, the only one on the Razr.

The main camera rests under the front's Quick View display, but above the main display when unfolded, is a front-facing 5-megapixel camera. And that's most of the story with the Razr. It's an eSIM only device, which means there is no physical SIM card slot. It has a Fingerprint reader for securely unlocking and for authenticating mobile payments.

You'll score that Turbo Power charger, a USB-C cable, a USB-C to audio jack dongle, Razr earbuds, a carrying case and, of course, the phone itself.

We have some time before the Razr officially launches in January. But preorders will be available from Motorola, Walmart and Verizon in the U.S come December. It's going up against a lot more than just the Galaxy Fold: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy S10 and Pixel 4 are just a few others.
