Guess who’s back?

Motorola have revealed a revised update of one of the mort popular phones of all time: the Motorola Razr.

The new Motorola Razr features a 6.2 inch screen and folds in two just like the mid-00s original, although unlike its predecessor the new phone is all one screen rather than a screen and a thin keypad. The new device also features a small screen on its outer shell, a 'Quick View display' used to view notifications, reply to messages, take calls, and make contactless payments.

The phone weighs 205g overall and has folded dimensions of 72 x 94 x 14mm. Unfolded, it pretty much halves the thickness with dimensions of 72 x 172 x 6.9mm.

The Razr’s clamshell design could also be an answer to our biggest concern about the Mate X – the fact the screen is permanently exposed on both sides. There’s also an outer fingerprint sensor on the back of the device.

The Razr isn’t waterproof, but Motorola says it’s protected against “moderate” exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain. It is not designed to survive being submerged in water.

In the UK, the Motorola Razr 2019 is an EE exclusive. Unfortunately though, we don’t yet know when the handset will be available to buy − you can register your interest here.

How much will it cost?

UK pricing is yet to be announced, but in the US the pre-order price is $1,499 (which is approximately £1165).

What features will the new Razr have?

Aside from its dual screen capabilities, its ability to fold and its 'Quick View display', Motorola are yet to announce what other feature the new Razr might come packaged with.

However, based on the high-end price, we expect some high-end features.

Will it work?

Foldable phones are the latest big trend in tech, although it hasn't been a smooth ride to get to this point.

Samsung's Galaxy Fold, the first big name in the foldable market, went on sale in the UK in September, four months after its originally scheduled sale date on 3 May.

Samsung delayed two planned launch events for the £1,600 device and announced it had made "necessary improvements and run rigorous tests" at the end of July.

Motorola are keen to avoid a similar PR blunder, and have said that the screen of the new Razr can be replaced free of charge within 24 hours, while the product is still under warranty.
