Motorola joined the foldable phone frenzy with a twist. While others are making large foldable phones, Motorola makes it smaller. The 2019 Motorola razr has a 6.2-inch screen when fully opened and can be folded like the old clamshell phones from the past.
For those who have used the older clamshell Motorola razr, it might feel a little nostalgia looking at this phone. It has similar shape to the older version.
However, do not let the shape fool you. The new Motorola razr runs on Android 9.0 and has a 6.2-inch screen. It has a Snapdragon 710 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space.
Check out the intro video.
