One of the few foldable phones launched in 2019 was the Motorola Razr 2019, which was modeled on the old Razr flip-phones, and a sequel seems to be in the works: the Motorola Razr 2020 (or the Motorola Razr 2 as such) could appear in the coming year.
The Motorola Razr 2019 was a novel device that brought the nostalgia-inducing flip-phone form factor into the modern age. However, there were certainly issues that should be fixed on a newer device.
That's why we've put together this list of things we'd like to see in the Motorola Razr 2020 after we've collected everything we've heard so far about the upcoming foldable phone.
In a nutshell
- What is it? A second Foldable Phone from Motorola
- When is it out? Expected end of 2020, although possibly earlier
- How much will it cost? At least four digits
Motorola Razr 2020 Price and Availability
If we were to speculate, we would suggest the launch date for Motorola Razr 2020 in mid-November 2020, followed by a release date until the end of the year. There is no specific reason for this timeline, unless it reflects the schedule of the Motorola Razr 2019.
We could see the Motorola Razr 2020 earlier in 2020, possibly at MWC 2020 in February, but that would be a bit early on, this would result in the unit being up for sale just months after the original. Since many telephone companies work in years of cycles, a good estimate for the end of 2020 is to be expected.
The prices for the Motorola Razr 2 are not yet known, but the original costs $ 1,500 / € 1599 (AU $ 2,000), AU $ 2,000) at release. Depending on the changes Motorola makes, the newer device may be cheaper, more expensive, or cost the same.
For the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, however, it seems Samsung is preparing to release an extremely affordable device compared to the original Fold, and it is certainly possible that Motorola will follow these steps.
Leakage, rumors and news
So far, we've heard two rumors about the Motorola Razr 2020 or Motorola Razr 2, as we've heard it was referring to.
The first is that the upcoming Foldable Phone could have eight sensors on the side of the device so you can use gestures and access shortcuts when the phone is open or closed.
This is evidenced by a patent that also appears to indicate that the device, unlike the one used in the Razr 2019, has a fingerprint scanner on the screen.
