The smartphone industry is swiftly taking a new route where the devices have a foldable form factor. The complete shift to this new profile is not too near but we are seeing some early challengers amping up the game already. We have seen Galaxy Fold from Samsung and a yet-to-come Mate X from Huawei. But there are some other players as well which are doing their bit and getting ready to embrace the change.
Motorola is one such name to add to the list of companies working on their first foldable phones. We admire Motorola for coming up with the idea of upgrading its classic Razr phone. While companies, well most notably Samsung is trying possible foldable form factors, Motorola chose to refresh its much-appreciated Razr phone. In fact, the design of Motorola’s foldable phone looks better.
If a set of images posted by ever-reliable leakster Evan Blass are to be believed, the new Motorola Razr will have the same clamshell profile but with a foldable display inside. Opening the flip-up will show you the display spread entirely on the two parts of the phone.
The set of renders reveals a second screen on the flip-up lid of the phone as well, right next to the primary camera to help you take selfies. It appears to be a functional touchscreen as well. A physical button provided below the screen appears to be a Home button which may do double duty of being a fingerprint reader as well.
Earlier reports have suggested the foldable Motorola Razr could come powered by Snapdragon 710 octa-core processor. It may feature a 6.2-inch OLED display, while the secondary display may come with a low resolution of 600x800 pixels. Previous leaks stated the Motorola Razr is going to have a single main display that folds vertically and flips out into place.
