Motorola Razr Reloaded

Long before Apple's iPhone, the Motorola Razr flip phone was one of the most iconic and beloved devices of all time, with an ultrathin, arrestingly modern design for its day. It sold in the millions. Now, the storied brand that made the world's first cell phone roars back with a new icon that combines a retro flip design with a futuristic foldable screen. The result: a shot at forging history once again.

The new Razr launches at a time when the viability of foldable phones is in question, given the screen issues that plagued Samsung's Galaxy Fold. But a new, patent-pending hinge system that bends the phone from top to bottom instead of from side to side could give the Razr an edge over its competition.

CNET went behind the scenes with the $1,500 Razr to catalog every nook and cranny of the innovative foldable design, how it feels to use and to report on how Motorola transformed a flip phone into a foldable. The foldable Razr goes on sale in January 2020. Bookmark this page for regular updates to everything Motorola Razr in the coming days and weeks.
