Motorola RAZR 2019 foldable smartphone launched in India for 1,24,999 INR

The reimagined Motorola RAZR was launched back in November last year in the US dubbed as the Motorola RAZR 2019. The latter is the first foldable smartphone from the Lenovo-owned company. The smartphone uses the hinge mechanism similar to the original RAZR smartphones but now it comes with an OLED screen that unfolds seamlessly to form a large 21:9 single screen.

The Motorola RAZR 2019 has launched in a single 6GB RAM+128GB storage model priced at INR1,24,999. The smartphone will go on sale from April 2 with pre-orders starting today on Flipkart and select retail stores across India. The smartphone will be available in a single Noir Black color option.

In terms of specifications, the Motorola RAZR 2019 flaunts a 6.3-inch HD+ (876x2142p) Flex View P-OLED display as the main display. On the exterior there is also a smaller 2.7-inch (600x800p) secondary Quick View G-OLED display which is used for viewing notifications, controlling music playback, as well as capturing selfies.

Pumping power from under the hood is the 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 octa-core SoC mated to Adreno 616 GPU, 6GB RAM, and 128GB built-in storage which is non-expandable. The smartphone runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box, tweaked to support the app continuity on the foldable display.

As far as the camera is concerned, the Motorola RAZR 2019 packs the main camera of 16MP resolution with f/1.7 aperture which when unfolded becomes the main rear camera and when the device is folded it doubles as the selfie shooter. It is also aided by a ToF 3D depth sensor.

On the main Flex View display, the smartphone mounts a 5MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture which can take selfies when the device is in the unfolded state. The phone is capable of taking videos of up to 2160p resolution at 30 fps.

A 2,510mAh battery equipped with 15W TurboPower technology juices up the phone. Other salient aspects of the Motorola RAZR 2019 includes eSIM support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS/A-GPS, and USB Type-C port. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack, however.

To spice up the nostalgia factor, the Motorola RAZR 2019 comes with a dedicated ‘Retro’ mode in the settings. The biometrics is taken care of by an optical fingerprint scanner mounted on the chin. Also, the smartphone comes with a splash-proof nano-coating.

The Motorola RAZR 2019 will be up against the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip foldable phone priced at INR1, 09,999 in India. The latter is a better spec’d device with the Snapdragon 855 Plus SoC, 12MP dual rear camera, and a bigger 3,300mAh battery. It remains to be seen how the Motorola RAZR 2019 will fare in the competition.
