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.

This is the closest we've come to a "practical" folding phone.
Motorola made the foldable Razr we've wanted at the price we can't afford
2007: this is the year where foldable phones are no more!

The phone “we all” wanted but because it’s so expensive nobody will buy
I miss the satisfaction of flipping a phone closed when i'm pissed off at someone at the end of the call.

The second version of this is gonna be great, and hopefully at a more reasonable price point.

Him in the first 6 minutes: "Wow!! That's super cool!"
Him in the last 5 seconds: "I don't think it's there yet"
When it fold it gets smaller, this is not only cool but practical.

It was my parent's first phone, they loved it and we still have it somewhere at home

xx yy:
Just wonder how they're gonna do a phone case for it
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.

OMG!!! This must be so cool!!! I loved the original Razr, that was my favorite phone (before I got my Blackberry Priv). I just wonder how long will the screen last, how many years will it work perfecty...?

This will sell well to the people who reluctantly moved from a flip phone.
Hera Javaid
Hera Javaid:
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.
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!
E S:
I’d love to have one. I always loved flip phones because they fit in my front pocket and button it up and not lose it.
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
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.

Finally back to my times when you can close a phone YES
"Full giant regular sized android phone"

yeah pretty much sums up modern smartphones
Not gonna lie if all phones adopt this design, I wouldn’t be mad
Omg that slap when you ended a call used to feel so good , more foldable smartphones please. I'll wait til the technology makes it truly worthy of the price.

Outdated specs to keep the price down 🙂👍 smart move! Pro version can probably come out later with a power boost for tech geeks who want more power! For more 💰
Maciej Sidor
Maciej Sidor:
Yeah I wonder who's actually gonna buy it lmao xD
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

For the first time in years, I’m super excited about cell phones. Can’t wait to see how other companies put their spin on this.
Wall Cutter

That was a great phone. I would use it today if it really does work well. I can't see that fold/crease in the middle ....not eventually showing up
Nokia take notes this is how you bring back retro phones
folding a phone makes me feel weird 🥴
"fold-able technology is really new" lol no take a look AT THE OLD RAZR

0:19 the Motorola Razr is the last phone where it makes sense to say that it's a "twist" that it's foldable.

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.
