Motorola’s Razr foldable phone to land in Europe in December with a €1,500 price tag

Motorola has long been rumored to revive the Razr line with its first foldable smartphone, and new details have come in today about this device. As anticipated, it will be a mid-ranger, and it should apparently get a release in Europe in December 2019 or January 2020. To get one, you will need to part with no less than €1,500.

Compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold and Huawei’s Mate X that is much cheaper indeed, but the new Razr will still be around 50% more expensive than its competitors’ top of the line handsets with non-folding screens. Thus, it may turn out to be a tough sell.

The device will fold the way traditional Razrs did, and also like those models it will have a smaller screen on the outside, which will display notifications and status icons. The final design is said to be very close to what you see in the images above and below, which are concept renders created by Sarang Sheth of Yanko Design.

The new Razr will focus on style above all, like its predecessors, which means that you shouldn’t expect a huge battery to be built-in. We’re assuming that means the trademark thinness of the Razr line will remain intact.

Past rumors claimed the new Razr would sport the Snapdragon 710 SoC, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB of storage, and a 2,730 mAh battery, all of which seems in line with the new information today’s rumor has surfaced. The screen inside was said to be a 6.2-inch panel with 876×2142 resolution, while the outer panel will settle for 600×800.

In the US, Verizon is allegedly going to offer it, and it will be priced at $1,500. Expect to see it in stores by the end of the year.
