After over a decade of dormancy, it seems the Motorola Razr is about to make a dramatic comeback complete with a foldable display.
Last week Evan Blass flooded his Twitter feed with photos of the purported Motorola Razor 2019 in all its pliable glory. The phone was shown to meld past and present with its 2005-inspired aesthetic and foldable OLED display.
The device was exhibited with an exterior screen that will seemingly function like a traditional always-on display by providing quick access to notifications, the time, date and more.
Unfolded, the revamped Razr was shown flaunting a huge panel complete with a notch at the top to house a single front-facing camera.
Elsewhere, the device appears to flaunt a physical fingerprint sensor, a single exterior camera and a thick bottom lip.

While Blass’ photos of the alleged Razr 2019 will surely erupt palpable excitement amongst fans, it seems the new Razr has now been spotted in the wild for the first time.
A post on Chinese forum Weibo showed an image the device being used in an unfolded form factor. The handset’s design appeared to corroborate Blass’ earlier leaks – once again it was displayed with a notched screen, a hinge in the middle of its screen and a thick bottom lip.
Unfortunately, the Weibo post only showed one photo of the alleged Razr, meaning fans will have to wait a bit longer for a real-life look at its exterior display and folding mechanism.
Motorola is expected to take the wraps off its new Razr on November 13 at a glitzy event in the bustling city of Los Angeles. The tech firm hasn’t exactly been discreet about what could be revealed, especially with it promising fans are “going to flip” when they see what’s in store…
If that wasn’t obvious enough, the Illinois-based company also posted a GIF of its retro Razr V3’s hinge being pulled back to reveal a new mechanism, for a new folding phone perhaps?
With that said, it’s worth noting Motorola hasn’t explicitly confirmed its iconic Razr series is making a comeback, but teases from the firm along with the latest leaks suggest the phone will indeed be unveiled in full next week.
Of course, Express.co.uk will be covering Motorola’s scheduled event live.
