Motorola Razr flexible: Rumors

One of the first rumors of the year has been the reappearance of the Motorola Razr brand as a flexible cell phone. According The Wall Street Journal Lenovo had sealed an alliance with Verizon to sell the cell phone, which will arrive for a price of US $ 1,500. Then it is believed that this cell phone arrived in February, but this never happened.

Verizon and Motorola have already had previous alliances, such as the Motorola Droid Razr, launched since 2014, and where the operator had the exclusivity of these cell phones. This rumor unleashed the investigations that have now let us know much more data about this cellular future.

This is how Lenovo's folding phone will look under the Razr brand.

This alliance will be reinforced with the appearance of a series of patents that relate to Motorola and Verizon. In particular, a Bluetooth technology certification platform announced that a future Motorola Razr will have Bluetooth 5.0 and that it will be endorsed by both companies, according to the XDA Developers report.

Of course, the YouTube channel TechConfigurations has also contributed its grain of sand to this series of rumors, imagining how this cell phone could be if it came true. This time the creatives have called Motorola Razr V4, and the cell phone basically opens to show a huge screen that has a section on the bottom for the fingerprint sensor, and that can fold the panel in two, closing it like the old one Razr, although on the outside it is all screen.

The phone may come in several colors. Undoubtedly, this is one of the videos that lets us dream about how the cell phone will be, although it does not mean that Lenovo is making it that way.

More recently we have been able to see a video in which the old Motorola Razr seems to gain strength, although with a modern design, and when opening it, it lets you see a single screen. However, the exterior is different from that of this previous video, because it leaves the external part much more similar to what we already knew of that cell phone that I demoted in 2004.

In addition to these rumors, here are other reports that seem to make clear the future of the Motorola Razr or Moto Razr flexible.

The patents that will make Motorola Razr a reality

The place unveiled a supposed Motorola patent, which shows a cell phone like the Motorola Razr, but instead of having the middle hinge, it will be totally flexible. The photo also allows us to see the cell phone double and without bending, giving us an idea of ​​what the company will be preparing.

The information ensures that the phone will increase its screen throughout, but not in width, which will also present us with a new type of devices, which will incorporate screens designed for the enjoyment of multimedia content.

Another report ensures that the cell phone will have an external screen as the original, and although the top image is just a concept, lets us see that the phone will have a screen that looks like 18: 9, like the one with most cell phones of the moment. This video shows us more of this concept.

Features of the Motorola Razr flexible

The XDA Developers site recently revealed what it considers to be the characteristics of the Moto Razr that it will be launching at some time this year.

  • 6.2-inch screen, with resolution of 2,142×876 pixels
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor
  • 4GB or 6GB of RAM
  • 64GB or 128GB storage
  • 2,730mAh battery
  • White, black and gold colors

These possible features are interesting, if we consider that the original Razr had a screen of only 2.2 inches, and that the company could be selected a processor that is not necessarily the most powerful in the market, and that is often used by mobile phones half.

Price: The cheapest folding cell phone

Although cheap is a word that does not apply to a phone of US $ 1,500, the truth is that if we compare it with the Galaxy Fold of US $ 1,980 or the Huawei Mate X of US $ 2,600, this cell phone will be cheaper than those of the competition.

Of course, Motorola is not the only one that works on cheaper flexible cell phones. TCL is expected to launch its own devices at a more affordable price, while LG has not yet disclosed the technology behind its folded panels.

Of course, if you want a Motorola Razr, when it goes on sale you will have to hurry, because according to reports only 200,000 units of this cell phone will be made. Of course, we still do not know the date of presentation, although we do not rule out that the Lenovo Tech World 2019 is an ideal place to publicize this new device. In 2018 it was held in September, so if it were the case we would have to wait a bit.
