The 2019 Moto Razr has been part of multiple leaks in the past, including one from yesterday. The phone is now official with Motorola giving out all the details we wanted to know about the device. The striking aspect about the Moto Razr is the fact that it comes with a foldable display, while the mystery button is finally revealed to be the fingerprint scanner/home button.

The phone features a 6.2-inch Flex View OLED panel with a resolution of 2142 x 876. The display has an aspect ratio of 21:9. When folded, the phone has a secondary 2.7-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 600 which Moto calls the “Quick View” screen. This panel can be used to view notifications or network status, just like other clamshell phones. However, with the Razr, users can also interact with the UI or even activate Google Assistant. The display has a notch which houses a 5MP selfie camera, while the back panel has a 16MP sensor with “Night Vision”.

Moto mentions that the phone runs on the octa-core Snapdragon 710 SoC and is accompanied by 128GB of non-expandable storage and 6GB of RAM. The Razr uses a relatively slim 2,510 mAh battery while the default charger supports 15W fast charging. The phone has a USB C port and physical controls on the right side including the volume rocker as well as a power button.

The smartphone will be exclusive to Verizon in the U.S. and will be available for pre-order on December 26. Moto mentions that the phone will be available across Verizon stores in the U.S. on January 9, 2020. The big surprise here is that the company is charging $1,500 for the Moto Razr, making it one of the most expensive phones in the market today.
