Motorola Razr Foldable Phone Announced; Starts at $1499
Motorola Razr, one of the popular flip-phone series, announced more than a decade ago, is getting resurrected with the all-new Razr. For the past few months or so, there have been constant rumors surfacing across the internet, hinting towards the launch of the new Motorola Razr. And today, they have been set to rest, with the company finally unveiling the phone at an event in Los Angeles, California.
Talking about the most highlighting aspect and probably the USP of the Razr phone, its design. The all-new Razr takes inspiration from the original Razr and has a clamshell-like design that folds into two to offer a compact size and expands all-the-way to give a bigger screen estate to perform the usual phone stuff. Since it’s a foldable phone, there are two different screens — one, which is a 6.2-inch Flex View OLED panel with a 21:9 CinemaVision aspect ratio that goes from edge to edge, and the other — which is a 2.7-inch gOLED Quick View touch-enabled secondary panel that lets you view notifications and perform quick actions.
At its core, the Razr is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 710 processor with Adreno 616 GPU, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It has a 2510mAh battery with 15W TurboPower charging and runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box. For optics, the Razr sports a 16MP rear camera with f/1.7 aperture, EIS, and Laser AF, and a 5MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and screen flash.
As for other hardware specifications, the Motorola Razr comes with a fingerprint scanner for authentication, and includes 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C for connectivity.
