Motorola Razor (2019) features, specifications
For real phones, the Motorola Razor (2019) looks similar to the original Motorola Razor, including a curved bottom chin, though everything has been redone. The company has also created a design water-repository.
The primary display on he brand-new Motorola razor is a 6.2-inch flexible OLED HD + (876×2142 pixels) screen with a 21: 9 aspect ratio, as noted that it can be completely changed in half. Motorola says that when it is folded, there is no gap between the two parts of the screen. In the folded state, consumers can use the secondary 2.7-inch (600×800 pixels) Quick View display, which can be used to take selfies, view notifications, and control music playback.

Motorola said in a statement, “Razer uses advanced flexible OLED screen technology and a groundbreaking hinge mechanism that shuts the phone completely from both sides.” “This engineering breakthrough protects performance and creates a thinner, more compact design.”
Motorola has packed a 16-megapixel f / 1.7 primary shooter on the phone that serves as the selfie camera in the folded state of the phone and as its primary shooter in the unfolded state. The company has also bundled night vision mode in the camera software to ensure that the phone takes good pictures even in low light conditions. AI algorithms have been used to improve low-light images.
There is also a 5-megapixel camera inside the Motorola Razor, which is present in the main display notch. It can be used to take selfies when you don’t want to turn off the phone or need more screen real estate to properly prepare your selfie.
In terms of software, Motorola Razor runs the stock Android 9 Pie and the company made sure to flip the phone to whatever you were looking at on the main screen, mainly on the secondary screen.
The bottom Chin has a fingerprint sensor as well as a USB Type-C port. Other specifications include the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 2510mAh battery. The battery supports 15W fast charging support, although given the relatively small battery size, it will be interesting to see if it can last up to a day on one charge. This is quite possible, as Motorola Razor 2019 users are more likely to use secondary small displays for many smaller tasks and are switching to the main display only for things that actually require larger screens .
In terms of connectivity options, the phone has no SIM card slot, but it does support the eSIM card. Additionally, Motorola has added NFC support, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 4G LTE and GPS. The Motorola razor measures 72x172x6.9 mm in the unfolded state and 72x94x14 mm in the fold. Finally, the Motorola Razr 2019 weighs just 205 grams.
