The Motorola razr is back. Here’s everything you need to know!

Almost everyone who was born before a certain date remembers the original Motorola razr. It was one of those truly iconic gadgets that defined an era much like the Walkman or the Nokia 3310.


Well it’s back, and just like its predecessor the new Motorola razr is breaking ground with a totally unique form factor that uses folding screen technology in a bold new way.

It’s the flip phone you remember and love, re-invented

 

In a world where phones only seem to be getting bigger the Motorola razr heads in completely the opposite direction.

 

This is a flip phone, compact and pocket-ready but unlike the original this one has a trick up its sleeve. Gone is the old keypad and in its place is a stunning full-length touch screen display.

 

Using ground-breaking flexible OLED screen technology, the razr’s display is able to completely fold in half.

It has a screen worthy of the latest blockbusters

 

Open the razr up and you’ll be greeted with the stunning 6.2-inch OLED Flex View display.


Stretching from edge to edge the Flex View display has a 21:9 CinemaVision aspect ratio which are the same ultra-wide dimensions that you’ll find in the film industry.
That means you’ll be able to watch your favourite films in the size they were intended, no annoying black bars at the top and the bottom.

 


Two screens are better than one

 

Close the razr and you’ll be presented with the second Quick View display. This smaller touch-screen display has been designed to help you tackle things while on the go.
Respond to notifications, change your music or even use Google Assistant all without needing to open the device.


You can even take great-looking selfies using the razr’s 16MP main camera. Just twist your wrist with the phone closed and the Quick View display will pop into life and show you the camera.

A camera worthy of the razr

 

The 16MP main camera is packed with advanced technology and features that enable you to take the best photos quickly and easily.


Night Vision lets you take stunning photos in darker conditions by combining eight frames at different exposures.


Built-in AI can optimise a scene based on what it’s looking at while AI-powered Portrait Lighting lets you apply dramatic lighting effects to your portrait mode photos.

Built for the real world

 

If you owned the original razr you’ll remember it stood apart from other phones thanks to its incredible build-quality. It was made from metal, not plastic and had those laser-cut keys that gave a satisfying click when you pressed them.


The new Motorola razr embodies that same spirit. A strong metal chassis keeps the phone utterly ridged when the display is extended while an effortlessly smooth hinge mechanism lets you shut the phone with a reassuring snap.

 

The razr is also water-repellent, so while you won’t be able to dunk it in a pool you can at least be safe in the knowledge that you won’t get caught short in the rain.

@Jon_K   And it’ll be cheaper to pay off the contract next year.   If I do decide to get this ( probably will ) my daughter is going to go mad if I don’t give her my iPhone.

It's an interesting time in general for Android.

 

With the uncertainty of Huawei's future operating system and Samsung devices full of bloat by the time you get them, there's an opening for a new brand to take off.

 

I'll see what the pricing is like before I take the plunge..

To be honest I can see a lot of people canceling and going for the Flip, Motorola dropped the ball by delaying.

@Pryde   The Z Flip has a disclaimer about the screen saying it will crease.

 Spec wise from what we know the flip outshines the Razr and that matters a lot to people
