New Xiaomi patent shows foldable smartphone with Moto Razr 2019 design

Motorola Brings Back the Original Razr with a Foldable Display

It's addressing a problem we don't know we had - that smartphones take up as much space when we're not using them as when we use them. Yep, a screen that actually folds.

For more stories go to the Business Insider South Africa homepage.

The Motorola Razr 2020 opens into a standard-size smartphone.

Motorola unveiled the foldable RAZR phone earlier this week, featuring almost the same iconic design as the original RAZR. "Therefore, we've created a world class service package to make sure every razr customer has an exceptional experience". More exactly, our full question was: "What measures has Motorola taken to ensure the reliability of the device, and is it confident in it remaining issue-free in the long run, unlike what we saw with the Samsung Fold?". Before the iPhone launched in 2007 the Razr was one of the biggest selling phones available, selling 130mn units. But that doesn't mean the situation can't be improved.

Motorola is bracing for the future by returning to the past.

The Motorola Razr is extremely expensive, though.

"Our zero-gap hinge allowed us to bring to market a device that folds completely in half".

Samsung, Huawei and others have phones that fold like a book and offer a double-sized display when unfolded. That's true, to an extent.

Way back in 2006 we all wanted one.

People have been upgrading smartphones less often as innovation slows down. While this 2019 razr looks a lot like the iconic Motorola RAZR V3 that's now well over a decade old, it packs modern and appealing specs and, more notably, it's got a flexible display. The good thing is that the Motorola RAZR is among the cheapest foldable phones in the market with a price tag of $1,500. It's also the first generation of a new kind of device, so there are bound to be kinks that need to be ironed out.
