Motorola showcases a foldable reincarnation of the classic Razr and it’s the best foldable design so far
Motorola came out with Razr 2019, a revitalization of the 2004 classic. But this is not just a stunt to get you to pay for a nostalgic piece. Razr is very much in pace with modern smartphones in the market.
Equipped with a well-design hinge (take note Samsung) and an OLED screen, Motorola looks to make the Razr a competitive flagship phone on the market. So far it seems to have the best looking hinge design out there.
The 2019 Razr has a 6.2-in 21:9 plastic OLED panel that folds right in the middle. It is an Android phone that flips like a phone from the 2000s. Motorola set to release the phone in January 2020 for $1,499.
When unfolded, the phone is slightly longer than most of the smartphones in the market. (iPhone 11 series, and Pixel 4) It doesn’t try to have an all-screen look. Instead, the classic chin would house a fingerprint sensor and a USB-C port.
When folded, Razr has a secondary 2.7-inch OLED display. The main camera could be used as a selfie camera as well. Motorola said they are confident the hinge would last the lifespan of the phone.
The hinge is designed in collaboration with Lenovo. Unlike other foldable phones in the market, there is almost no gap when the phone is folded.
When it comes to the camera, Razr has a 16MP front camera with night vision mode and a 5 MP internal camera.
However, when it comes to computing power, the Razr is not competitive against other flagship phones in the market. It uses the Snapdragon 710 processor. It only comes with 6GB of Ram and 128 GB internal storage.
That being said, the Razr is a great phone, with an innovative design that has a lot of potentials. But it cannot match the technical specs and the price of other flagship phones. However, if you really like the look and feel of a truely foldable phone, it might be worth your money. It is indeed the cheapest foldable phone so far.
