Motorola has unveiled its reimagined Motorola Razr in the US.
If you’re in for that classic look of a Moto phone, this is what the company is trying to aim for with the release. The new Razr is a foldable smartphone, akin to the likes of Samsung Galaxy Fold.
When closed, a 2.7-inch screen lets you take a selfie, check messages, or swipe on notifications. Prying the device open reveals a 6.2-inch cinematic touch display with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The best part, perhaps, is that the device stays flat in either scenario. Motorola says that they were able to achieve this feat with an engineered zero-gap, three-part hinge. The mechanism protects the display from creasing in folding/unfolding operations, as well as minimize the hinge size.
Other features are akin to a mid-range device — a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710, 6GB of internal storage, and 128GB of internal storage are in the device. Due to its form factor, the phone only has a measly 2,150mAh battery with 15W fast charging tech. It’s also water-resistant, but the specification was not disclosed.
The new Razr will be first available in the US for US$ 1,499 (~Php76,100). Pre-orders are now underway via Verizon until December 26, with shipments beginning January 8 next year.
