Motorola became one of the first device makers to sell a foldable phone when it launched the Razr in early 2020. It's already time for the sequel with better specs, design, and features. It's also a little cheaper, and it won't be exclusive to Verizon. Even without the device in-hand, it sounds much more appealing than the first-gen. Although, it's still a $1,399.99 phone with mid-range specs and unproven display technology.
The Moto Razr seems to have quickly fallen out of the public consciousness, partially because there are more important events happening right now than ultra-premium phone releases, and partially because the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold2 have received more attention lately. Much like Samsung did with the Z Flip, Motorola is now prepping a minor upgrade for the Razr with 5G support in tow.
Motorola was right on the verge of turning irrelevant in the premium smartphone segment when it decided to bounce back with a modern-day flip phone. The new Moto Razr managed to get people interested by striking a nostalgic chord, even if hardware like a Snapdragon 700-series chip kept power users wanting more. As thoughts turn to a follow-up Razr, a new report talks about possible iterative upgrades for its camera and battery, and an official source helps us narrow down the launch time frame.
When it comes to flip phones with folding displays, the Galaxy Z Flip might be a snazzy little number, but some people still prefer the Moto razr. Sure, it has its shortfalls, but if you're all about the form factor above everything else, then you probably might want to grab two of them for the price of one while supplies last at Motorola.
Following a decade of seeing black, rectangular glass slabs grow in size while swapping their backs between metal and glass, foldables are taking over to become the face of phone fetish. The nostalgia-invoking Motorola Razr went on sale not too long ago and was closely followed by Samsung’s clamshell Galaxy Z Flip. With the two foldables officially out now, it’s time to revisit this comparison to find out which one deserves your dough.
Just a day before photos of the gold Moto Razr leaked for all to see, a YouTuber was busy tearing a black version of the coveted phone to pieces. The much-anticipated second coming of the Moto Razr isn't even on the market yet, but that hasn't stopped the folks over at PBKreviews from cracking it open to see all the goodies tucked inside.
Foldable phones, at least for the moment, are significantly more fragile than more common types of smartphones. The screens are plastic to allow folding, not glass, and the gap between the screen and phone body can allow dirt to get inside — something Samsung learned very quickly with the first batch of Galaxy Folds. We already have a general idea of how durable the Motorola Razr is, but now Zack from JerryRigEverything has given us a better picture.
Motorola revealed its Razr-branded foldable phone back in November, following months of leaks and rumors. Now the day has come for you to put down $1,500 for the device — and switch to Verizon, if you haven't already.
There's been a ton of buzz around Motorola's reimagining of the iconic Razr — so much so that they had to push back the initial pre-order and release dates to meet demand. Luckily, it seems that Motorola is holding to their promise of a short delay, as they've announced the new availability dates for the Razr today: pre-orders will begin January 26th with phones becoming available on February 6th.
