Motorola Razr brand has seen several derivations and resurrections. But of all, the 2004 born V3 model was the one that hit a home run for the company.

Let’s see all about the new design, the onboard specs and whether all that cuts for the brand to capitalize on our nostalgia.

Motorola Razr (2019) Features
2019 kickstarted the trend of foldables and we have seen different takes on the new format. Moto goes with a vertical fold, which resembles the clamshell flip of the original. The larger display inside stretches to 6.2-inches with 876×2142 pixels resolution. When folded, you get a 2.7-inch outer display that goes by 600×800 resolution.
The thick chin at the bottom is yet another throwback to the Moto Razr V3. It’s not a simple visual upholstery. It houses a fingerprint sensor.
