Motorola Razr Foldable Phone Will Debut On November 13
Foldable phones like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X has shown that a smartphone unfurling into a table is attainable. With the launch of Galaxy Fold, Samsung has given a tough competition to all its competitors. To keep at par with the rising competition, Motorola is rumoured to introduce a new, all-screen bend to a reboot of its classic Razr, the most iconic foldable-screen phone.
Motorola has just sent invites for a press event that is to be held on November 13 with an invitation promising “An original like any other”. It also mentions the previous Razr models by reportedly saying, “You’re going to flip.”
Motorola is one of the very few companies that has shown its interest in foldable phones. Earlier in February, the VP of Global Product Dan Dery in a media interview stated, “We started to work on foldable a long time ago, and we have been doing a lot of iteration.”
To bring a twist in its innovation and surprise its users, rumours reveal that Motorola has taken a different approach from Samsung and Huawei in redesigning the foldable phone. It is bringing a single flexible display that folds twice flanking a dual-hinge design.
A report from August disclosed that Motorola Razr 2019 Foldable Phone will debut in Europe sometime in December 2019 or January 2020. The price tag is expected to be around EUR 1,500 (roughly Rs. 1,19,000). According to the rumours swirling around, Razr Foldable Phone will look alike just like the concept renders created by SarangSheth of Yanko Design. The renders claimed a build similar to the previous Razr phones and the presence of a secondary display at the front.
In the case of a camera and software, rumours suggest that the foldable phone will flaunt a single camera. On the software side, Razr is expected to behave like a normal Android device when it’s unfolded, but when shut it would allow certain exclusive experiences. Things like notifications, media controls, and Google Assistant interactions are expected to be placed at the outer-screen. The small panel which is the touch screen will act as a scrolling pad for content on the phone’s larger screen.
Other specifications that Motorola Razr 2019 are rumoured to come with are Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Further, the handset is said to feature a 6.2-inch (876×2142 pixels) folding display alongside a secondary display of 600×800 pixels resolution.
