A bit more information has emerged about the upcoming Motorola Razr folding phone, and it’s not great news for anyone who was hoping for a clamshell flagship.
According to XDA Developers’ source, who has supplied a pretty legit-looking logo for the new Razr line, the phone will run on the Snapdragon 710 chipset and a 2,730mAh battery – that’s lower than we’d expect, but it’s also a smaller screen, so it probably balances out.

The phone will apparently come in two variants: one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, and one with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
Codenamed Voyager, the phone is rumoured to have a 6.2 inch flexible OLED display on the inside with a resolution of 876×2142, plus a 600 x 800 resolution screen of unknown size on the outside.
The new Razr will apparently come in black, white and gold.
However, the mid-range specs don’t mean this will be an affordable foldable. According to the original Wall Street Journal article about this phone, it’ll be about £1,165. Yes, over a grand. Is the foldy screen inside really worth that much cash? We’re not convinced.
Still, for once it’s a very interesting time in smartphone development, and we’re looking forward to seeing what falls out of the Razr rumour mill next. [TechRadar]
