Motorola’s Razr foldable flip phone hits Australia next month at $2699

Motorola has announced its modernised Razr flip phone will launch in Australia next month, following Samsung’s Galaxy Fold as the second foldable screen phone to officially hit our shores.

Motorola — which in a smartphone context these days is a brand of Chinese computer company Lenovo — unveiled the Razr in November, but the new announcement includes additional details about its design and availability, including that it will retail for an eyebrow-raising $2699 despite some decidedly mid-range specs.

The new Razr lets users answer calls and more with the main screen folded shut.

The primary selling point of the 2020 Razr is that it can be used as a folded up square or unfolded to become a full sized phone. It keeps the same slim foldable sillhouette as the 2000s favourite, measuring at a pocketable 7.2cm x 9.4cm when closed and featuring a small 2.7-inch screen on the outside of the clamshell for notifications.

Unfolding the phone reveals a 6.2-inch OLED in a 21:9 ratio, the same cinematic shape as tall phones like the Sony Xperia 1, although the Razr packs the much lower resolution of 876 x 2142. This means that — unlike Samsung’s foldable phone — the Razr has a similar screen shape to other modern Android smartphones, just with a big chin and fingerprint scanner at the bottom.
