It seems that rumours around the Moto Razr foldable phone are true as Motorola has sent out invites for an event scheduled to take place on November 13 in Los Angeles. While the invite does not mention about the foldable phone directly, but its drops subtle hints about the handset. The Lenovo-owned company says that the event will feature the ‘highly anticipated unveiling of a reinvented icon.’ The one-liners like ‘An original unlike any other, and ‘You're going to flip’ on the invite suggests the device is highly likely the foldable Moto Razr phone.
Reports about the phone, which could be called the Razr 2019, have been making rounds on the internet since long. It’ll compete against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the yet-to-be-launched Huawei Mate X. Earlier this year, Dan Dery, Motorola VP of Global Product, has confirmed that the company was working on a foldable phone. ‘We started to work on foldables a long time ago. And we have been doing a lot of iteration,’ Engadget quoted Dery as saying.
The company had filed a patent back in 2017 for a foldable smartphone, according to which, the new phone would have the same clamshell design as the older one. This essentially means that the handset would have an inward-folding display. This is the third type of design that we have seen as far as the foldable phones are concerned.
Apparently, the Razr could come be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 or a Snapdragon 710 processor with up to 6GB of RAM. The phone could sport a 6.2-inch OLED panel that would fold vertically, just like the original Razr. The primary difference will be that instead of the keypad (in the original version), there will be an OLED display. It has been rumoured that handset will launch in Europe in December 2019 or January 2020 with a price tag of 1,500 Euros (approx Rs 1,19,000).
