Do you remember the classic Motorola Razr V3? The phone style clamshell Motorola has been one of the most iconic, almost or at the same level as the Nokia 3310 and even the first original iPhone. And while the first Razr is now just a memory, it will appear to have a successor, but it will arrive in the form of a smart phone with a folding screen, one of the growing trends in cell phones.
The truth is that it is not the first time that Razr's name is once again the center of attention. Lenovo used the Razr V3 to promote a foldable smart phone in 2016, and it was also reused in a series of smart Android phones at the time quite decent. But now, he will return to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Fold and other similar devices. Therefore, we have compiled all the news, images, rumors and leaks about the Motorola Razr with folding screen.
New filtered photo
A leaked photo on the last days of October has shown why we should be excited about this intriguing device. It seems that the company has remained very close to the iconic design of the original Razr, a device that was the first mobile phone of a large number of users globally.
The photo leaked by the well-known @evleaks on Twitter seems to have come from promotional material for the press, and shows the classic form of aflip-phoneslightly open and resting in the palm of one hand. The remarkable thing here is the phone size, since it is very compact, especially since it seems to be clearly a female hand that is holding the device. The open top reveals the reflective surface of the screen, which is expected to extend from the bottom to the top of the phone when it is open.
Initially it had been rumored that Motorola would aim for a 2019 summer launch for its Motorola Razr foldable phone, but that obviously didn't happen. However, it has already been confirmed that the company will reveal this intriguing device at an event on November 13, and we will give you all the details when they present it.
Motorola's original date was probably aimed at competing with Samsung and Huawei folding phones. Dan Dery, Director of Global Products at Motorola, said the company "began working on folding a long time ago," adding that it had no intention of arriving later than everyone else in the market. However, it is worth bearing in mind that the source that speaks with Cnet is animate and that secret release dates are often subject to change.
With the launch of Huawei Mate X postponed at the moment and the Samsung Galaxy Fold just released after problems with the review units, Motorola probably considered it wise to wait. Still, a launch before the end of 2019 could be good news for Motorola, leading to lucrative sales for the Christmas season.
Availability and price
In terms of availability and price, according to the Wall Street Journal, Lenovo (the Motorola-owned company) partnered with Verizon to sell the device in the US. But if you are hoping to have one in your hands you should start saving, because, according to the sources that spoke with the publication, it is likely to have a price of around $ 1,500 dollars. Although this represents hundreds of dollars less than the Samsung Galaxy Fold of $ 1,980 dollars, it is certainly a fairly high price, even more than many computers
Additionally, a previous Znet report said that Motorola may be working on a second folding phone with two folds, although the device is not likely to fall under the Razr brand.
How do you see the folding Razr phone? Finally we can get an idea close to reality. SlashLeaks got what appears to be a marketing image of the new Motorola Razr, and everything indicates that the previous leaks were quite close.

In the images you can clearly see a section of the phone, in half, which could be flexible, along with a module at the bottom to house the internal components. According to an earlier leak, the phone is expected to come in three colors: white, black and gold.
We know that a Motorola smart folding phone has been in the design stage, at least, since June. A December 2018 patent discovered by 91 Mobiles showed how it could really be a folding Razr Moto.

The patent images show a design reminiscent of the original Moto Razr, from the curved notch in the upper part of the screen to the large chin that protrudes in the lower part. The keyboard has been replaced by an extended screen, presumably foldable, but the back of the device is extremely similar to the original, with a smaller screen and a camera lens. The only new addition on the back seems to be a fingerprint scanner located on the bottom hinge.
Last year, Motorola was granted a patent on a foldable smart phone design that featured a heated central hinge that would "cure" imperfections on the OLED screen caused by flexing. It is entirely possible that this design can form the basis of the updated version of Razr V3. The inclusion of a central heated hinge may also explain the high potential price of the telephone.
Does the Motorola Razr folding be a high-end device with the best specifications? Maybe not, according to some leaked specifications, starting with the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. Let's see: they are not basic chips themselves, but they are a step or two behind the Snapdragon 800 series that we are accustomed to using in today's high-end phones. Possibly 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage space will be attached.
When deployed, the Razr's screen can measure 6.2 inches and have an unusual resolution of 2142 x 876 pixels. Outside, a small screen with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels will help you with daily use. Filtration indicates that the battery will have a capacity of 2730mAh; But both the Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X have two batteries inside, so it is possible that the Motorola Razr also has two small batteries of 2730mAh.
In the days of 12 GB of RAM, 512 GB of internal storage, screens with 4K resolution and Snapdragon 855 chips, the folding Razr can be more a mid-range phone than anything else. This, despite its price.
Although the expected Motorola Razr with folding screen has not yet been officially presented, rumors and some image leaks of the new phone do not stop coming to light. More recently, the Chinese blog Sina Technology We posted a video on the Weibo social network that will reveal all the physical qualities of Motorola's new phone.
Although this video has not been revealed by Lenovo, at first, the Chinese blog said it was shown in a company wheel of the company. However, then the manufacturer informed Endgame that it was only a demo created by a fantastic, based on patents and leaks. Although it is not an official video of the manufacturer of the next Motorola Razr, without a doubt, It allows us to imagine what is coming.
We will keep you informed as we receive more news about this device.
