Motorola is relaunching the iconic Razr in November
The new Moto RAZR is expected to come with a 6.2-inch display, and will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor.
Do you remember the foldable Moto Razr that became a trend around 2007? Every teenager had to have it.
Well, 90s kids, guess what? Motorola is planning to relaunch the device, with all new looks and updated features. According to a report on CNET, the company has sent invites for the launch event and has also teased the device.
The launch event is scheduled for November 13 in Downtown Los Angeles.
The invites mentions a "highly anticipated unveiling of a reinvented icon", which suggests a reimagining of the old Moto Razr. A GIF shared by the company shows a new phone getting revealed by tearing apart the old one.
The invite also mentions "You're going to flip", re-affirming that it will be the iconic flip phone.
The new Moto RAZR is expected to come with a 6.2-inch display, and will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. It is expected to feature a 2,730mAh battery, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB/128 GB internal storage.
Priced at $1,500, it appears to be more affordable than most existing foldable smartphones in the market. These foldable phones offer the screen space of a tablet, with the ease of a compact smartphone. The phone is expected to be released in three colours - white, black, and gold.
Earlier leakes suggested that the device will come with an all-display on the inside, which basically means the entire surface will be a screen. Previous editions of the Razr had a keypad on one of the foldable sides.
It will be interesting to see how this cult favourite performs against Samsung's recently released Galaxy Fold, which reportedly has issues at the hinge. Since the display comes over the hinge, some of these Samsung devices experienced cracking and breaking of this display on the fold.
The two existing foldable smartphones from Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X are priced at $1980 and $2,600 respectively. However, the size of these devices are much bigger than the expected Moto Razr.
