It's official: The Motorola Razr is back.
The new Motorola Razr keeps the flip phone form factor of the original model, but rather than using a small display and a physical keypad, this new one is all screen. It's got a 6.2-inch foldable 2142x876 OLED display with 21:9 aspect ratio. There's a 2.7-inch OLED display on the outside of the Razr, too, letting you view notifications, take a selfie, control music, and more without having to open the phone.
Speaking of selfies, the main camera on the Motorola Razr is a 16MP snapper with f/1.7 aperture, Dual Pixel autofocus, and laser autofocus. There's also a front camera with a 5MP sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
Inside the splashproof body is a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 710 processor paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. There's a 2510mAh battery powering the Razr that supports 15W TurboPower fast charging, too, and a fingerprint reader for added security. Other features include a bottom-ported speaker, USB-C port, and Android 9 Pie.
Verizon will begin taking pre-orders for the new Motorola Razr on December 26th, and it'll launch in stores and online on January 9th. Pricing will be set at $62.49 per month for 24 months or $1,499.99 full retail. Verizon has also confirmed that it has an exclusive on Motorola's new Razr.
Outside of the U.S., Motorola tells us that the Razr will be available for pre-order in select markets across Europe in December, and a launch in Canada is planned for early 2020. The foldable Motorola Razr will also be making its way to Latin America, Asia, and Australia.
The new Motorola Razr definitely has a look reminiscent of the old-school flip phone Razr, and we're sure that a lot of folks who used that original Razr will be drawn to this new model. What's notable about this Motorola Razr is that while it's not the first foldable display phone we've seen, it's got a different from factor from the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. While those devices are like regular-sized phones that unfold into a tablet, the Motorola Razr is more like a traditional smartphone that you fold down into a smaller size. Because of that, we're looking forward to getting our hands on one.
