"You're going to flip", reads an invitation that Motorola has begun sending to media for an event that almost certainly reveals a fresh look at the old school Razr flip phone.
Scheduled for the evening of November 1
When Motorola discussed the idea to revive the Razr with CNET in December 2018, the company noted that while people crave a new one Look at the Razr, the phone should be revived in a way that is not gimmicky and manages to deliver an incredible experience. "We need to figure out how to achieve a breakthrough," said Raul Pierce, co-designer of the original Razr.
Those are encouraging words and it will be interesting to see what Motorola has achieved. We expect a more modern folding device, perhaps with dual screens or a single folding display, which seems to be the only thing that Motorola can do a little more for this phone than just the old Razr with faster chips and a sharper screen.
Fewer encouraging words come from a January 2019 report in the Wall Street Journal, which claimed that the new Razer would cost $ 1500 and that only about 200,000 units would be produced. Speculation suggests that the new Razr will have a modern Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 2,730 mAh battery, 4 GB or 6 GB RAM, 64 GB or 128 GB storage and color options such as white, black and gold.
We will soon discover how accurate that is.
