Motorola Razr 2019 release date, price, news and leaks
Motorola Razr flip-phones were iconic devices back before full-featured smartphones conquered the handset world – but there’s a chance that unforgettable design could make a flashy return with a new Motorola device that will be unveiled in mere days.
We’ve heard many rumors about the new handset, allegedly called the Motorola Razr 2019: a folding phone that takes the old-school form factor and turns it into a ‘clamshell’-type foldable phone.
The foldable phone battleground is heating up, with the Samsung Galaxy Fold available to buy and the Huawei Mate X coming soon. But while the latter are premium devices, the Motorola Razr V4 (a potential name following up on the V3) is expected to be one of the first ‘affordable’ foldables.

Here’s everything we’ve heard about the Motorola Razr 2019 so far, along with a wish list of what we want from it.
Update: Leaked press images have given us a clear look at the likely design of the foldable Motorola Razr – and it looks remarkably small when folded up. But a later leaked image supposedly of the Razr 2019 shows an unfolded device about the width of a regular phone, but certainly longer than most phones.

- What is it? A foldable reboot of the Razr range
- When is it out? Probably November 13
- What will it cost? Maybe around $1,500 (roughly £1,170, AU$2,010)

However Motorola sent out invites for a November 13 event that looks like it could be the launch event. Several teases and hints in the invitations point towards the reveal of a foldable phone, and it would be very surprising if Motorola had such a device that…
