FIRST IMAGES: Motorola To Release New Razr Flip At MWC 2020
Motorola is set to release their new Razr Flip phone at Mobile World Congress in February 2020.
Overnight images of the new device were leaked online, Images posted to Twitter by Evan Blass showed what appeared to be official pictures of Motorola’s revamped Razr phone with a folding display. What’s not known is whether the device will be 5G some insiders say yes.
Leaking like this is often done by Companies to try and jack up pre interest in a new product.
At the bottom of the phone there appears to be a rather large plastic piece which is speculated to house a home button or a fingerprint reader.
Once flipped open the phone has a roll over seamless display similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.
The big difference is that this device can be easily held in one’s hand.
Specs are said to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and 4GB or 6GB of RAM with options for 64GB or 128GB of storage.
Patents filed by Motorola earlier this year, show indicate that the phone will also have a medium-sized display on the outside of the device.
The original Razr was the #1 phone in Australia with David Beckham flying to Australia to launch a new version in a Motorola Shop in Sydney.
Reports suggest that it could retail for as much as A$2,000 when its released in Australia however ChannelNews understands that that Lenovo who own the Motorola brand may lower the price depending on other releases at Mobile World Congress.
In 2011, the company partnered with Telstra to launch the Droid Razr, a smartphone that didn’t replicate the original flip phone design, but instead featured a 4.3-inch display and claimed to be the ‘world’s thinnest smartphone’ at 7.1mm thick.
Once released, the new folding Razr will compete with a tipped new flip phone from Samsung.
