Is the popular flip phone Motorola RAZR coming back? The fact that it can be quite worthwhile to reissue older devices, Nokia recently proved with its retro phones. Motorola has probably something similar in the future, but the matter is probably quite different. Apparently, the manufacturer plans to bring back the iconic brand Motorola RAZR. However, the devices should then also current trends in the industry are used. We collect all rumors and information about the Motorola RAZR V4 and summarize them in this article.

Motorola RAZR V4: That's how it might look

The designer Waqar Khan has created on the basis of previous information and rumors a new concept video and shows in this case, what the Motorola RAZR V4 could look like. He also shows how the hinge for the folding mechanism could be constructed. You can see the use of two displays, one of which is used in the closed state. The second is installed in the device itself and is expanded to a very long display.


But also in the placement of the camera, the designer has thought. So this comes in the front area of the first, smaller display used. More precisely, he places them directly below them. If you open the Motorola RAZR V4 but it is then in the upper range, just like most smartphones.


Whether the Motorola RAZR V4 actually comes on the market, of course, remains to be seen. After all, this is primarily a possible concept of the flip phone. However, various concept videos are often close to reality, especially if they are based on current information. Maybe we will learn more towards the end of February at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona. Although it is known that this is supposed to be a high-end smartphone, but which hardware is actually used, is not yet known.

Motorola RAZR V4 Concept: Flip Phone Foldable

Apparently, Motorola is serious about its plans to revive the popular flip-phone concept with the RAZR V4. But instead of folding it should fold. Although this creates a completely new operating concept, the look of the RAZR classic of the 2000s would remain. According to which principle Motorola could proceed exactly, various concept pictures suggest. They are part of a Register entry in the World Intellectual Property Organization, through which the manufacturer has had his idea protected.


The entry and the pictures are from the company Motorola Mobility itself. You can see different views of an unspecified smartphone here. When unfolded, it has a large screen that folds over a hinge in the middle. So the device comes only on half of the actual housing size. In the folded state, the inner main display is also protected against all external influences. Instead, users then look at the compact metal case in which Motorola wants to accommodate another, much smaller display. On this information such as the time and date, but also received messages and the weather could be displayed.


Two cameras seems to be the foldable smartphone from Motorola. If the RAZR V4 is unfolded, both are on the back. On the other hand, the cameras collapse to the front and back.

Foldable smartphone with retro character

One thing is for sure: fans of the RAZR series should enjoy the Motorola RAZR V4. Assuming that the manufacturer will actually implement the smartphone outlined in the Register entry. It would have the advantage of a compact and robust smartphone, at the same time on request large display surface. Technically it could convince by the Snapdragon 855 and up to 8 GB of RAM. However, the RAZR V4 is not expected to be cheap. A whopping $ 1,500 should cost the foldable smartphone. The launch of the Motorola RAZR V4 is expected in February - perhaps the device will even be on display at the MWC in Barcelona.


Motorola would not be the first and only manufacturer to bring a foldable smartphone to market. Even pioneers such as Samsung or Huawei have been working on the foldable mobile phone for years. At the CES in Las Vegas, the unknown manufacturer Royole also showed with the FlexPai an impressive prototype of a foldable tablet that will become the first foldable Android smartphone in a few seconds.

Motorola RAZR V4 is intended to return as a foldable smartphone

The report is originally from the Wall Street Journal. The US industry newspaper relies here on internal sources in the company, which are related to the plans of the new smartphone. So Motorola allegedly revive the RAZR brand and bring it as a foldable smartphone with high-end equipment on the market. Flexible displays are the new trend of the industry, which could experience its first highs especially in 2019. Among other things, corresponding devices from Huawei, Samsung and other manufacturers are expected.


The Motorola RAZR V4 (if the name V4 is ever used) should therefore appear with real cutting-edge technology. Among other things, a Snapdragon 855 with 8 GB of RAM and a lot of internal memory are suspected. But what the design of the foldable smartphone could look like is not known yet. However, last year there were concept pictures of a possible RAZR phone with foldable display. These are the result of patents that Motorola still has in the hindquarters.

Foldable RAZR phone should be expensive

Also interesting are the estimated prices. Even at Samsung was to hear that the Galaxy Fold would not be less than $ 1,000. But the Motorola RAZR V4 gets a lot more expensive, according to the Wall Street Journal. Allegedly, the Lenovo subsidiary later demands around $ 1,500 for the foldable model. In addition, the units produced are initially limited to 200,000 pieces.


Even with an early performance should be expected. Called here is a presentation or even a market launch in February. However, one also speaks of an exclusive deal with the US provider Verizon. Whether the smartphone then comes to Germany, remains to be seen. Maybe we'll get a Motorola RAZR V4 at the MWC 2019 in Barcelona.
