Moto Razr was a well-known smartphone to users around the world 15 years ago, that was a flip phone with keypad, and after 15 years Moto Razr has come in a new look, and with the latest technology for the new generation. This time the company has launched Moto Razr as a flip smartphone. A 6.2-inch screen smartphone, which you can fold and fit in your pocket. This is not a rumor; this is true that Motorola always brings new exceptional designs to the premium market before other companies. There are two other competitors in the market for folding phones which is, Samsung Galaxy phone and Huawei Mate X.
Peculiarities of the smartphone have been increasing over the last decade
People love big screen when a smartphone has become a portable theatre or a laptop for everyone. Sometimes it is not possible to carry a big-screen phone in pocket and hand. Keeping that on the mind, the company has launched a new foldable clamshell phone with their old Idea. The clamshell phone is the half size of the original device.
POLED (Which is Plastic OLED) has been used to make this phone, so you can fold the screen without any crease. The screen is protected from scratches and other damages. This is a flexible panel screen phone, which you can fold and no need two different screens. The company has used a steel frame, which ensures sub-flush fitting. The secondary screen is also cool; it enables you to view the notifications without opening the fold of the handset. You won’t deny that the look of the handset is cool. You can go for this set with close eyes if you want to spend $1,500 for the smart-looking folding phone.

The device is coming with an average battery backup of 2,510 mAh, which is smaller than the other two competitors. It is in the balance because the secondary screen is very much activated for notifications and other performances rather than the main screen. If you don’t need to unfold the phone, the battery will remain for a long time. The device gets charged by a USB-C charger. No wear less charger facility is present.
Another argument is that RAZR is coming with a mid-weight Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, which is not the latest and better than others in the market.

And a 5 Mega Pixels f/2.0 aperture front camera is given for selfie, which is used for face unlock. The front camera can be used for a selfie when the phone is unfolded through the secondary display screen. No ultra-wide lens and zoom lens are available. You will get a night vision mood, which will help you to take a low light shot.
