This is the first time Motorola has struck back to all the criticism they had in the past. For the first time Motorola has revived its old goldie Razr series flip phones in a smartphone fashion. The FLIP SMARTPHONE for the first time ever has been introduced.
For all the tech we have been seeing for a couple of years, this must be the most innovative and creative device ever. Motorola has really tried hard on this one and provided a stable looking flip mode smartphone. But this also raises a tons of question as well which we will answer one by one below.
How well is it built?
The overall build quality is subtle and does seem to be quite rigid and lasting. The flip mechanism is a specific newly designed for a better closing and opening experience.
The clappier sound it makes upon closing is same as like the original. The screen slightly goes downward upon closing for the proper functionality of the hinges as well which all in total shows a well-built smartphone.
What are the specs?
The specs are not great and definitely not great at all but that is not why you would like to buy this smartphone. The actual reason for buying this smartphone would be the innovative approach that it is going to bring in the near future. An all new form factor and fully functioning design worth noting but not the least.
Specs are as below:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Octa-core chipset.
- 128GB Storage
- 2510 mAh battery with 15W TurboPower
- 6.2-inch pOLED main display (21:9)
- 2.7-inch gOLED Quick View display
- Fingerprint reader Upfront
As seen from the spec nothing is great at all but the overall experience is new and worth trying for all the flip phone fans. The screen ratio is odd 21:9 and the chipset plus the battery is not that great at all.
How much will it cost?
This is a big shocker as you might expected the phone to be cheaper given the specs but that is not the case at all. The phone is very expensive even though it could be argued that this might be due to the innovation and branding of the product but still the phone is quite expensive. The Price that will be going up for this variant is $1499.99 . Hope you love flip phones enough to try this smartphone for such a hefty price.
When will it be available?
The pre-orders are open on December 26, 2019 but the phone will get a release date in January 2020.
