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.

I was in love with my Razr; this looks amazing‼️
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.
Send me one to try and I’ll review it! My first phone was a Motorola. I used to work for Sprint back in the day!

I bought the original first edition Razr the week it came out, literally! I think I still have it in my attic.
I like how when it's closed you can take selfies or vlog yourself with the main camera.
Luca Cifera
Luca Cifera:
I'm excited for this phone. That being said, I'll wait for the 2nd gen one once they work out all the kinks. :)
That is so freaking cool! I never buy first gen stuff though.. I may be in to this next version. Heck if I wasn't so cheap I might have bought this one for a second phone now.
this seems like the product that will be viable for most people after its 2nd or 3rd iteration and honestly, I am here for it

I've always been waiting for this, but, the specs are a turn off... At least throw in a SD645 or SD655 series.

Everything was perfect until he mentioned $1500😱😱😱
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
