Verizon's Moto RAZR 2019 is finally a compact foldable, will you get it on release?


Тhe freshly-unveiled Motorola RAZR 2019 is closer to what we imagined a foldable handset would be - an old-fashioned flip phone that has an uninterrupted screen where the hinge is on the back, making it compact to carry, and giving you a huge display when you need it.

The whole premise of foldable phones was, until a few years ago, to turn the 4"+ phone screens of the time into 7"+ ones without having to lug around a giant phone, and it took Samsung seven years to end up with a retail device on that concept. 

The problem that is evident with the Galaxy Fold and the Mate X is that they are giant phones. Regardless of whether you fold them inwards or outwards, bending the phones around the vertical axis makes them thick, tall, and uncomfortable to carry around in pockets. The new RAZR rights that wrong, and introduces a smallish 6.2" display that is with a very tall aspect ratio, for the ultimate compact phone in your pocket. 

Unfortunately, you'd have to shell out an amount that a top-end iPhone or Galaxy at the highest storage tier would command, but that's the price of being an early adopter of a potentially revolutionizing technology. Any takers when this thing goes up for pre-order next month on Verizon?

I'll get V2 - this v1 is too weak on specs for that $$. In 4 months I'll buy a used one though

Like the form factor but not buying a Moto phone, ever.

I really do love this design and ingenuity of the hinge but this is obviously an early adoption device. Wait for the spring loaded edition with more beefed up specs. It'll come.

I'll give them an +A for design, but an -F for the price. I'm not cheap, but €1.700 for a midrange phone is just way too expensive.. And I always buy only unlocked high-end flagships.
