Motorola Razr 2019

The upcoming foldable smartphone from Motorola will retain its upcoming name. As confirmed way back in April 2019 from the patents and the remarks made by the Motorola Vice President of Global Product Dan Dery shows that something is cooking – “no intention of coming later than everybody else in the market.” 

The CEO of Lenovo (Motorola is part of Lenovo now), Yang Yuanqing said, “With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design. So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon.”

The device is going to be a full foldable flip phone that opens up from the inside. It will retain a new futuristic design by going all screen replacing the hinge joints of the previous iteration. It will have a tent-like display mode, two cameras and an unfolded screen size of 7 inches. The Razr 2019 is expected to come with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage as well as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 system-on-a-chip. The company is rumored to opt for an older chipset to bring down the cost of the smartphone.
