And it's back. Motorola's Lenovo sub-brand launches the 2019 version of the iconic Moto Razr today. Moto Razr has been subjected to a number of leaks and rumors in the past, and as the photos show, Razr looks attractive, whether folded or unfolded. The new Moto Razr offers a premium design and includes two screens – one is the main screen (when the phone is opened), while there is a small screen when the device is folded. The Moto Razr main screen has very minimal side moldings.
Motorola launches Moto Razr at a price of $ 1500, which translates to approximately 1.08.273 Rs. Shortly after the global launch, Motorola India confirmed via a teaser that Moto Razr is coming to the country very soon. The company did not disclose the release date of Moto Razr in India, but we hope the phone will hit the market sooner than you can imagine. In India, we also expect Moto Razr to be expensive – possibly more than one lakh. That said, we believe that with Moto Razr, the company is looking to tackle the likes of the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Fold in India.
Moto Razr Specifications
Moto Razr comes with two screens – one is inside while the other is outside. Inside – when deployed – there is a flexible OLED display that measures 6.2 inches in size. The screen offers a CinemaVision 21: 9 aspect ratio similar to some of the previously released Motorola smartphones. Outside – when the phone is folded – there is a 2.7 inch OLED screen that offers a 4: 3 aspect ratio. Moto Razr also includes a fingerprint sensor on the bottom.
Unlike the recently launched folding phones, such as the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, Moto Razr looks like one of those old, iconic Razr phones when folded. When folded, Moto Razr shuts down completely and users cannot use the phone. Therefore, to operate Moto Razr, it is necessary to unfold like a flip phone.
Moto Razr allows users to do all kinds of activities – making calls, sending messages or emails – when unfolding – but when folded, there are some limitations. When folded, Moto Razr only allows users to check notifications on the "Quick View" screen. Notably, to respond to notifications, users will need to deploy Razr, unlike Samsung's Galaxy Fold.
The Quick View display on the outside of Moto Razr includes a 16MP camera that allows users to click selfies when the phone is folded. The 16MP camera comes with various camera features like EIS, night vision mode and more. The same 16MP camera turns into a rear camera when the phone is opened. The phone includes one more 5MP camera inside – when unfolded.
Moto Razr is equipped with the Snapdragon 710 processor – yes, this flip phone is not using a main processor – paired with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The Moto Razr comes with a paired 2510mAh battery with 15W quick charge stand. In front of the software, Razr runs Android 9 Pie out of the box.
