It is not very long since Motorola has announced to bring back one of its most popular and successful smartphones, named RAZR. Probably, Motorola has come up with this move after seeing Nokia, which has started reviving its old mobile phones at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) event.
HMD Global has so far come up with a new version of its older phones, Nokia 3310 and Nokia 8110. Looks like, Lenovo is also in plans to revamp some of its successful handsets of the past such as the RAZR. Hence, based on the company’s revelation and other rumors, a concept of the next generation RAZR phone is released, but with a new name, Motorola RAZR V4.
The concept which came out recently is almost similar to that of the RAZR patents that surfaced a while ago. Also, its design is created based on the RAZR V3 design but with a few tweaks in order to match up with the current generation smartphones of 2018. The patents have revealed a smartphone featuring a foldable design and dual cameras in the rear. Seems like the phone has got a perfect fitting when it is folded. But what’s more interesting is, the Motorola RAZR V4 foldable smartphone still features a fingerprint sensor despite its small size when folded.
It features a 3 display design of which, there is a 6-inch QHD AMOLED display sporting in-display fingerprint scanner. The second one is an exterior display of 2.5-inches that is meant for use when folded. Meanwhile, the third 0.75-inch multipurpose display comes with an integrated fingerprint sensor. Although its screen size is small, it still is capable of adapting the user interface and apps besides creating shortcuts to other vital functions. The small screen is similar to the messaging application, which shows smileys and makes user accessibility easier. When the phone is folded, the device measures around 7.5mm and when unfolded it is just 3.7mm thick. In addition to all these, Motorola RAZR V4 in Dubai also gets the IP68 water and dust resistance feature.
In terms of optics, Motorola does sticks to the current trend of dual camera setup in phones. As a result, the concept mentions about the device featuring a dual 16MP and 12MP main cameras that comes with support to 4K video recording. Both these sensors will get the assistance of LED flash, phase detection autofocus as well as touch focus options. Meanwhile, the camera featuring a 12MP wide-angle lens is just perfect for taking clear selfies and video calling activities. In addition to this, the concept also reveals its big battery with a capacity of 4100mAh. Along with this, the handset also includes aspects like dual stereo speakers, USB Type-C connectivity as well as 3.5mm audio jack features.
Moving on to the technicalities, Motorola RAZR V4 in UAE gets the latest version of Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box. However, this OS version will be based on the Intelligent User Interface. Under the hood, it will feature the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, which is yet to be launched. This processor is currently rumored to be the world’s first 7nm SoC chipset, which will arrive probably the next year along with the Qualcomm’s newly released X24 LTE modem. In addition, the handset will have 6GB RAM with two internal memory options to select from including 128GB and 256GB.
There is no need to specially mention about how essential smartphones have become these days. Almost all the devices released in the recent times are popular and preferred by different audiences based on their requirements. But if you go a few years back in time, there used to be what is now called basic phones. Although with unconventional features and specs, they still were largely preferred for basic communication. Of them, some devices failed to impress, while some others are still remembered even today. One such device among them is Motorola RAZR. It was then a fashion device, similar to what Samsung Galaxy S9, Google Pixel 2XL, and OnePlus 5T are today.
With a unique clamshell design, RAZR became one of the iconic handsets of the late 2000s. Keeping in view its popularity, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing hinted during the MWC 2018 about bringing the Motorola RAZR back, but with specifications and features matching to the current day’s standards. Moreover, several sources already mentioned Lenovo about working on a foldable display. Hence, it is largely assumed of the new Motorola RAZR to sport a foldable display screen.
Right now, there are no details available regarding the Motorola RAZR V4 release date and Motorola RAZR V4 price in UAE. However, it is anticipated that the new Motorola RAZR V4 price in UAE will be approximately AED 1800.
