It has been quite some time since we first started to hear whispers regarding Motorola's plans to revive the iconic Razr flip phone. And since the beginning of this year, these whispers have evolved into fully-fledged rumors. It is reported to cost around $1,500 with an official unveiling speculated at MWC 2019. Most recently, its design was spotted in a patent filing and now, a designer has shared Motorola Razr 2019 concept renders based on the very same patent design.
These concept renders have been designed by a designer Sarang Seth for a website Yanko Design. It is quite clear from the renders that they are based on the diagrams available in the Motorola patent application. The Motorola Razr 2019 is shown to have a squarish footprint when in the folded state. It has a single display panel on the front side which spreads all the way from top to bottom. There are curved edges, a notch for housing the earpiece, an aspect ratio of 19:8. One can also see the bottom chin which is one of the signature design elements of the original Razr.
On the back, it is shown to have a smaller secondary display which is likely to be used for showing important data. This could be like showing date, time, weather update, and any alerts/notifications from apps. There is a single camera and Motorola logo as well. The single shooter is meant to be used as both the rear and front camera. Since the patent design did not feature any volume buttons or the power button, the designer chose to left them out of the renders as well.
It is hard to say when exactly Motorola Razr 2019 will become official but it is something that does appear that the company is at least thinking about it. Either way, we will keep you updated regarding future developments related to the phone.
