The Motorola RAZR Filp Phone Returns

The most iconic cell phone has returned. The 2019 Motorola RAZR shares a lot with its pre-smartphone ancestors, including a flip-open design, outward-facing screen, this time touch-enabled for quickly responding to messages and controlling music, and even the same radii on the curves. 

But instead of a keypad and tiny screen, it opens to reveal a 6.2-inch plastic OLED panel running Android 9 Pie. The device has a Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a single 16mp front-facing camera, and a fingerprint reader.

For the truly nostalgic, it also has a “Retro RAZR” mode that mimics the original’s interior design, from the interface and boot sequence to the iTap text entry. 

It will be available exclusively on Verizon for $1,500 in the US and will start shipping in January 2020.
