The Motorola Razr is a standout amongst the most foreseen smartphones of 2019. Recent leaks and reports have recommended that it could be the ideal blend of nostalgia and cutting-edge technology. Presently, a pack of official-looking press renders has leaked basically confirming this.
A blast from the past… And the future
As expected, the Motorola Razr (2019) trench the physical button layout and little screen found on the original in favor of a modern 6.2-inch display that extends from top to bottom gratitude to its 22:9 aspect ratio. Because of the smartphone’s unique shape and structure factor, the edge-to-edge panel is compelled to adopt some somewhat remarkable angles towards the top and base. This isn’t helped by the wide notch that is available above and home to an in-ear speaker.
Keeping things in accordance with 2004’s RAZR V3, the foldable release sports a huge chin below the display. But instead of that laying flush against the display as is basic nowadays, the chin really represents a rather large bulge which coordinates the thickness of the Motorola Razr when folded shut. While on the theme of the bulge, it merits bringing up that it’s home to an extensive speaker which, joined with the in-ear alternative, will probably work as part of a stereo speaker setup.
The Motorola Razr’s display shows no sign of a crease in present renders. However, as Samsung and Huawei indicated us with their foldable contributions, this surely isn’t a guarantee that one won’t be available on Motorola’s device.
The secondary display could prove extremely useful
Taking a look at the outside area, the lower portion of the smartphone is nothing interesting – it basically houses the Motorola logo. The upper area, on the other hand, is the place things begin to get interesting.
In spite of the fact that the renders don’t clearly demonstrate it – the counterfeit lighting makes it’s difficult to see – the upper segment is expected to house a small secondary display that’ll bolster a range of kind features through different pre-installed apps such as Moto Display, Moto Actions, and Moto Camera.
Regarding the camera app, it’s first worth calling attention to that the Motorola Razr does exclude a front-facing sensor. This implies that selfie fans will have to depend on the secondary display and going with a camera for the popular functionality.
Like most modern smartphones, the Motorola Razr’s camera app will incorporate a button that changes over to selfies. When pressed, what the sensor can see will naturally be displayed on the little external screen. In order to really take the photo, users simply need to tap on the larger display with their fingers. Then again, sliding a finger along the display will zoom in or out. It’s additionally suggested that a clock can be displayed on the outside screen if necessary.
In addition to these camera functionalities, gossip has it the Moto Display app will demonstrate push notifications and other valuable information, for example, the time and weather on the outside screen. Controlling media content through little widgets should be possible as well. It’s presently unclear what benefits the Moto Actions app will present.
Another unrelated feature comes when using the bigger screen on the smartphone. Clearly, Motorola’s software will give users the choice of running their finger over the outer display so as to look through webpages or certain apps.
Premium design but mostly mid-range specs
Like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X that go before it, the Motorola Razr was relied upon to convey one of the most recent flagship processors. However, recently discovered that the device may really wear the less groundbreaking Snapdragon 710.
Apparently, this chip will be joined by the decision of two internal storage configurations. The first and also least expensive looks set to incorporates 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. In any case, a version with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM should also be accessible for those of you out there searching for a little extra.
Unsurprisingly, the Motorola Razr will probably deliver with Android 9 Pie straight out of the box and Motorola’s minimal overlay. This will be combined with a small 2,730mAh battery and the company’s 27W TurboPower quick charging tech. Ultimately, it’ll stay to be seen what the smartphone’s battery life resembles, yet with such a little cell it could battle a little.
What’s inside the box?
From the appearance of today’s renders, the Motorola Razr will transport with a braided USB-C cable and a pair of USB-C headphones that likewise sport a braided cable. Alongside these elements, the renders demonstrate the fast charger that was referenced above and a 3.5mm headphone jack connector, recommending the Motorola Razr won’t convey the popular port.
Somewhere else inside the box, the usual instructions manual is to be relied upon alongside what appears to be a specially-planned stand. It’s indistinct now in the event that if it serves any need as an accessory, or if it’s simply part of the unboxing experience.
