Motorola is teasing the launch of its foldable razor smartphone on 13 November. Samsung, Huawei has already launched foldable smartphones and recently joined the party with Microsoft Surface Duo. Now, Lenovo-owned Motorola is ready to unveil its own foldable smartphone and has sent an invitation to the event. The invitation read “an original unlike any other”, suggesting it could be a rumor-ridden smartphone. The GIF invitation, according to CNET, actually melts a liquid metal-esque material and explains what an actual foldable device might be.
Unlike Samsung and Huawei, Motorola can be expected to take advantage of the flip phone form factor for this foldable device. This will be different from the design seen with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and Microsoft Surface Duo. The reference to the word ‘original’ in the invitation serves as a reference to the revival of the Razor brand. The event is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles and Motorola describes it as “the much anticipated unveiling of a reinforced icon”.
The invitation suggests that this will be a major event for Motorola. The company’s invitation states that the ceremony will feature special guests and instruments. It further describes the incident as “a journey through immersive experience.” The Motorola Razr foldable smartphone is now rumored to be launched every time. Initially, it was tipped for the first film this summer but moved towards the end of the 2019 deadline.
The Razer is expected to be another expensive foldable smartphone and a report has claimed that it will cost $ 1,500. The leak so far claims that it will be a Verizon exclusive when it goes on sale. The big selling point will be the clamshell design which can make it less fragile than the Galaxy Fold or Mate X. While HMD Global has been successful in bringing back the neutral device, Motorola’s success has been mixed.
