Motorola made the foldable Razr we've wanted

The Motorola Razr flip phone is back, but now it’s an Android smartphone with a foldable display. The 2019 Razr keeps the same general form factor, but replaces the T-9 keypad and small LCD with a 6.2-inch, foldable plastic OLED panel and Android 9 Pie. It’ll cost $1,499 when it arrives in January of next year.

Wow, a great first effort at bringing back that phone! Love the display its the best foldable I have seen yet. Now hopefully the Gen II model will be competitive with the flagships if they can get the right components to make it work.

They should’ve made this years ago. Although I loved my razor back in the day it just seems a little too late for this now.

It seems amazing. It's smaller, less distracting and keeps the screen safe. The only downside here is only one, mid-tier camera, and high price. Great innovation from motorola

Damn i can not wait, was not my first cell phone, but loved my razr. I might wait until the $1500 comes down, if they bring out a second version. If this thing is durable, we will see lots of cool phones to follow.
