Motorola RAZR will be making a reappearance in the first half of this year and the U.S is about to go on a nostalgia wave. The RAZR, as you might know, was one of the most popular handsets ever made. The clamshell has sold more than 130 million from the time period of 2004 to 2008. RAZR was cast aside when the smartphone era started to gain traction.
In 2016, Motorola hinted that phone might come back by releasing a video that shows a high school circa 2005. Of course, at that time RAZR was the must-have phone. The video also showed how selfies could have been taken back in the day. If we talk about the folded phones, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing hinted at MWC 2018 that RAZR was making a comeback and a Wall Street Journal story said that the phone would return as a foldable Android-powered smartphone. The story also concluded that the RAZR will be a Verizon exclusive.
Since then, we have seen a video based on patents that Motorola has received in which the rumored specs were leaked, and according to that the Motorola RAZR will feature a screen that when opened weighs in at 6.2-inches with a resolution of 876 x 2142, the 22:9 aspect ratio. The external display will carry a 600 x 800 resolution for a 4:3 aspect ratio. Instead, the powering of the phone with Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, this phone will be powered by Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform to keep the price of the phone down.
Motorola 2019 Specs:
With this concept, that the RZR 2019 is folded, a 3-inch small screen will be available on the back side under the rear camera and a 4-inch display in front. A 3.5mm headphone jack is also included. As cool as all this appears, the RAZR 2019 is expected to be priced at $1,500. On the other hand, a patent awarded to Motorola parent Lenovo for a foldable phone that shows a design very much similar to what you’ll see in the video.
