The Motorola Razr was a series of mobile phones by Motorola Company which was first time introduced in July 2004. This series gained a lot of popularity as flipped-phones at that time and was a household name in the mid-00s. Meanwhile, latest news regarding the Razr Series is that it is getting a reboot from Motorola this year. The official confirmation came in mid-April 2019 that Motorola is releasing the foldable phone (Motorola Razr Foldable). Also, it is rumored that the re-imagined handset will supposedly combine the hinged design of the 2004 model flip-phone with a folding OLED display. This addition of the foldable display means that the new Motorola Razr will compete with likes of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X, and the dual-folding Xiaomi.

Design & Display:
Most probably, assuming that Motorola will retain the design of the Razr series from yesteryear, the smartphone unfolds to reveal an edge-to-edge display inside. The Motorola’s January patent reveals that the new 2019 Razr will have a foldable screen tucking nicely into a clamshell, which itself will feature a second, smaller notification screen on its exterior.
According to the latest news from XDA developers, the external screen will not be able to run every Android app installed on the smartphone. Instead, the smartphone’s external touchscreen will be limited to a few apps, like Moto Display, Moto Actions, and Moto Camera App.

The users will be able to set different wallpapers for the main foldable display and the exterior touchscreen on the outside of the clamshell. Also, a noticeable feature of Motorola Razr Foldable will be that it will be flipped open with the help of Google Assistant by saying a simple phrase like “Ok, Google” or “Hey Google”. This option can also be disabled if the user wants to unlock their phone with a passcode, pattern or PIN.
Looking into all the specifications and features of the Motorola Razr foldable, we can assume that it will be a smartphone that will beat all the other versions of foldable released earlier. But the real picture of how will it work is yet to come.
A small video which can be viewed below gives a pretty good glimpse of what the Motorola Razr Foldable will look like.
