In what has become a trend in the gadget world, Motorola introduced or re-introduced the iconic Moto Razr in a much hyped launch event on 14th November. When Motorola had first introduced the Razr all those years ago, it was nothing short of a revolution with that flip design. The phone had caused a disruption in the market. Bar phones were declared out-dated. ‘Flip’ was the new in-thing. With the launch of the new Razr, Motorola hopes to create a similar impact in the smartphone industry with a combination of some cutting-edge technology and lot of nostalgia.

What makes the Moto Razr of 2019 unique?

Well, it’s smaller, classier and comes with a foldable screen! Yes, not a mechanically fit panel, a proper foldable screen. And if you are already worrying if you would be able to snap shut the screen like in old phones, here’s the good news –you can. With the new Razr, Motorola has just conveyed to Samsung how you build a sturdy foldable phone. The experts are already calling it the best foldable phone ever made in terms of user experience.

Razr comes with a 6.2 inch display, of course foldable to half. It’s quite small when folded, in fact smaller than your palm. It more or less looks like a sci-fi pager. The new Razr comes with a 5 MP front and a 16 MP back camera –no double-triple cameras. However, the 5 MP front-camera does sound a bit out-dated in these times. Here is a list of all the known specifications we could get our hand on.
