Motorola Razr debuts: 6.2 inch flexible Flex View screen, eSIM support and $ 1,500
So it happened. The new generation Motorola Razr smartphone is officially presented, rumors of which have been circulating on the World Wide Web throughout the year.
The new Motorola Razr (2019) looks similar to the original Motorola Razr, including the curved bottom chin, however design-wise everything has been revamped. The company has also made the design splash proof.

When folded, the user will have access to a small 2.7 inch Quick View screen with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. This secondary external display will display the information necessary (date, time, battery status, notification icons) and also allow you to take a selfie, switch the song without the need to open up the smartphone. Other notable features like Google Pay will also be available through this secondary display.
