Motorola's Moto Razr is almost here folks; and that point is even more evident by the smartphone's appearance at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). As is often the case with unreleased smartphones, these FCC "leaks" often give us a great look at what we can expect when the product begins shipping. The FCC images confirm all of the previously leaked renders that we've seen concerning the Moto Razr, including its clamshell design that harks back to the original Moto Razr flip-phone family. We can also see an elongated, unbroken portrait-style display that folds when not in use. Additional images from the FCC show the smartphone with its display unfolded from the right and left sides,... Read more...
If you owned a Motorola Moto RAZR back in the day, or admired one from afar because you couldn't afford it, we've got a treat for the eyes today. We've already seen leaked patent drawings and renders of the smartphone in the past, but this is probably the best leak of the device we've seen to date. The first of the leaked images comes from our usual go-to when it comes to unreleased smartphones: Evan Blass. Blass tweeted what looks to be a somewhat dark promotional image of the new Moto RAZR being opened. From its overall style to its beefy "chin", it's a dead ringer for the Moto RAZR V3. We can also make out a circular camera on the back of the display. Not to be outdone, Mobielkopen has... Read more...
Folding smartphones have proven challenging for hardware makers, but they have been forging ahead nonetheless with little sign of slowing down. It is not just Samsung and Huawei or getting in on the action either. Motorola, one of the most iconic brands in the cell phone space, is said to be gearing up to debut a folding smartphone of its own. Not to be confused with a flip phone, this modern day Razr handset would be in the general mold of a Galaxy Fold or Mate X (though obviously not a carbon copy of either model). A person who is apparently close to Motorola told CNET to expect the company to announced the folding Razr phone before the end of the year. This is presumably a dual effort—Motorola... Read more...
When it comes to the market for folding smartphones, things are just getting started. In late February, Samsung pulled the wraps off its Galaxy Fold which will be available for purchase this year in the United States. A few days later, Huawei unveiled its sleek Mate X, which won’t [officially] be sold here. Other companies are confirmed to be developing folding smartphones including Xiaomi and Motorola, and the market for these devices is expected to slowly grow over the next four years. According to Garner, folding smartphones will take up 5 percent of the flagship smartphone segment by 2023. Given current smartphone trends and future projections, that would... Read more...
When it comes to folding smartphones, there are two entries that have been brought to the tablet by mainstream OEMs: the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. The devices pack large folding s and are powered by burly octa-core processors; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 on the former, and the Kirin 980 on the latter. However, each of those smartphones is priced through the stratosphere. The Galaxy Fold carries a price tag of $1,980, while the Mate X will set you back a whopping $2,600. Motorola may be going for the more practical approach with its upcoming RAZR remake, as witnessed by the specs that the folks over at XDA-Developers were able to dig up on the folding... Read more...
Earlier this month, Motorola confirmed that it is indeed working on a folding smartphone (likely dubbed Moto RAZR); one that will inevitably be compared to the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the crowd favorite Huawei Mate X. Previously, a potential design for the smartphone was revealed by the World Intellectual Property Organisation, which showed off a folding primary display (portrait orientation) and a smaller secondary display on the exterior (which can be used when the primary display is closed). Now, the folks over at XDA-Developers claim to have received some insider information on how the secondary display will function. For starters, unlike the Galaxy... Read more...
Over the past several months, Motorola has dropped hints that it would like to release a folding smartphone as the spiritual successor to its famed Moto RAZR family. Those intentions came more into focus when a patent filing revealed drawings of the device in question. Now, a new report from Engadget all but confirms the company’s intentions to re-enter the fray to tackle devices like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X. "We started to work on foldables a long time ago," said Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery. "And we have been doing a lot of iteration." According to Dery, Motorola doesn’t want to be last major player on the market... Read more...
