Motorola is resurrecting its iconic Razr line in a big way: The new Motorola Razr is a foldable phone, but not like any of the foldables we’ve seen thus far. It’s essentially a flip phone with a tall 21:9 display on the inside, complete with a smaller glanceable display on the outside. Wondering what the new Motorola device is packing under the hood? We’ve got all the Motorola Razr specs below.

Let’s start with the most exciting part of the Motorola Razr specs: the display. When unfolded, the main Flex View pOLED display measures 6.2 inches. Motorola tells us there’s no display crease to be found on this device, which is a nice departure from the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The display has a 2,142 x 876 resolution in a 21:9 aspect ratio, similar to the Sony Xperia 1. The Razr’s display has a pretty sizeable notch, though, which houses the 5MP selfie camera.
Unlike the smaller display on the Galaxy Fold, Motorola doesn’t expect you to do everything on the Razr’s front display. The 2.7-inch OLED panel on the front will mainly be used to handle quick actions like checking and responding to notifications, making Google Pay payments, changing music tracks, taking selfies, and issuing Google Assistant commands. The front display has a resolution of 800 x 600 and has a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Above that front display sits a main 16MP sensor with an ƒ/1.7 aperture and 1.22μm pixels. It comes with EIS, Dual Pixel autofocus, and laser autofocus, and can also be used as the front-facing camera when the device is in its folded position.
Surprisingly, the Motorola Razr could be referred to as a mid-ranger, at least under the hood. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and has 128GB of onboard storage. There’s no microSD card slot here, and no headphone jack. The 2,510mAh battery looks a bit small at first glance, but that Snapdragon 710 processor is much more power efficient than the top-tier 800-series chips in current flagships.
Classic Motorola: There’s also no official IP rating, though it does come with a splash-proof, water-resistant nano-coating, which should shield against minor interactions with water.
Also class Motorola: The Razr ships with Android 9 Pie, not Android 10 (which has been out for over two months). Lenovo/Motorola’s software update track record has been less than stellar in recent years, so don’t hold your breath for a speedy Android 10 update any time soon.
Motorola also made it a point to note that the new foldable Razr is actually the same 14mm thickness as the original Razr flip phone. That’s impressive!
