When we thought the future of smartphones is going to be foldable, we didn't think we'll get to see some classic retro phones being brought back. But, Motorola has now decided to bring back the classic 'razr' phone as a foldable device.

Yes, you read that right. Motorola has resurrected the classic flip phone as a foldable Android phone. It's like a modern spin on the iconic phone and here's what it looks like -

Looks pretty cool, right? As you can see, the overall form factor of the phone is more or less the same, but they have replaced the T9 keypad and the LCD display with a single display that folds from the middle. This is a plastic OLED panel, but Motorola has managed to make it fold without a visible crease in the middle.

As for the specs though, we think Motorola could have done a better job. They're simply banking on the nostalgia factor here, hoping that people would pay the price to go back in time and feel the flip.

The Motorola Razr sports a 6.2-inch 21:9 plastic OLED panel inside that fold in half along the horizontal axis. There's also a smaller 2.7-inch panel inside which Motorola is referring to as a 'QuickView' display. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

As for the battery, the phone packs a 2510mAh battery with 15W TurboPower charging and runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box. In terms of the optics, the Razr phone sports a 16MP rear camera with an f/1.7 aperture and there's a 5MP front-facing shooter with an f/2.2 aperture.

Since this is essentially a new version of the classic flip phone, Motorola has also added something called the 'Retro Razr' mode which turns the display into an image of a display and keypad. It makes it sort of look like the old Razr phone.

Pricing & Availability

Motorola has launched the razr phone for $1,499 and it will be available to pre-order on December 26. The phone will go on sale starting in January 2020 in the US. Motorola India has also confirmed that the phone is coming to India very soon, although we don't have a release date for it just yet. We hope to learn more about it very soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
