Motorola has been working on a foldable phone for months now, according to numerous leaks this year. Fortunately, it seems like we won’t have to wait too long for the device.
The manufacturer has sent out press invites to a November 13 launch event, and
Android Central‘s CNET‘s invitation includes a teaser GIF (seen below, via Android Central). This teaser apparently shows an old flip phone transforming into what could be the new Motorola foldable phone.
This all suggests that we’ll finally see the company’s leaked RAZR foldable phone at the event. Previous leaks paint a picture of a pricey device with upper mid-range specs.
The Motorola foldable phone is tipped to arrive with a Snapdragon 710 processor (no flagship chipset here), 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of storage. The phone is also expected to arrive with a 2,730mAh battery, which is definitely small for a smartphone (foldable or not).
As for details related to the foldable design itself, we’re apparently looking at a 6.2-inch OLED screen on the inside and a small, secondary display on the outside. The form factor is also set to be a clamshell design, echoing old Motorola flip phones. The device is tipped to retail for roughly $1500, making it pretty cheap for a foldable but an expensive phone otherwise.
