It's hard to understate just how heavily Motorola owned the mobile market when the original Motorola Razr burst onto the scene back in 2004. One part style icon, one part super-durable feature phone, the Razr was the desirable handset of its time.
Motorola is now hoping its first foray into foldable phones, adorned with the Razr name, can recapture that magic. Where competitors in the folding phone space have opted for designs that add size when unfolded to a regular phone, Motorola is instead betting on portability, with a design that more or less halves itself to fit easily into a pocket or purse.

- Single flippable 16MP camera
- 5MP front-facing camera on the primary screen
- Snapdragon 712 processor

Pricing and availability
- US pricing at US$1,500
- Coming to Australia
If you're in the US, the Motorola Razr 2019 will go on sale through Verizon for US$1,500, which equates to around AUD$2,200 at current exchange rates.
Previous Motorola flagships, including many of its moto mod capable handsets, never officially made it to our shores, but Motorola Australia has told Finder that we will see the Motorola Razr 2019 launch in Australia.
Danny Adamopoulos, Motorola Australia's GM Sales APAC for Mature Markets said in a statement:
"I am delighted to confirm that the device you've all been waiting for will be coming to Australia. This is a transformative time for both Motorola as a company, but also the broader telecommunications industry here in Australia. And much like the Razr flip-phone redefined what a smartphone could be in the noughties, we're now ready to flip your world all over again with the world's first vertical folding display in a mobile device. The Razr is coming. Stay tuned."Back to top
