FLIPPING OUT

Flipped closed, the phone folds completely in half, with the top and bottom edges aligning perfectly for a gapless, ultra-sleek look. Flip it open to reveal an ultra-smooth, full-sized pOLED display.

Motorola introduces a redesigned teardrop hinge with this new razr, comprised of the industry’s first dual-axis tracking that minimises the size of the system. This hinge system combined with Ultra-Thin Glass makes the foldable nearly creaseless when the display unfolds, resulting in a seamless look and smooth feel.
