Here's our first look at the new Motorola RAZR 2019

Ivan, 21 January 2019

Motorola's reimagining of the iconic RAZR clamshell just got a bit clearer. Through images from a patent filing (which Moto was reportedly granted) we get to see a clearer image of what the 2019 RAZR will look like.

The phone will be a clamshell with a foldable OLED display embedded into it.

On the outside it looks to carry a similar outline to the original phone, down to the rounded bottom (where the speaker will be). However on the inside there looks to be a one-piece display with a notch on the top (for the earpiece). There are hinges in the middle of the phone's body.

The on the outside it appears there are two cameras and a secondary, smaller display, just like on the original RAZR V3.

Rumor has it that the Motorola RAZR 2019 will be announced as soon as next month but that it won't see global availability.

It will likely be launched as a $1,500 Verizon-exclusive in limited 200,000 supply.
