There's a new foldable phone in town. The Motorola Razr challenges Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X when it comes to how a foldable design could look.

Unlike the Galaxy Fold and Mate X, Motorola's Razr folds from top to bottom, which gives it a shorter crease in its plastic screen (sorry, there's no such thing as foldable glass quite yet).

Compare the Razr's short horizontal seam, left, with the Galaxy Fold's taller screen crease.

Folding the phone this way makes for a smaller device to carry around.

Here's how the Razr looks fully extended and in its box (the stand incorporates speakers, too).

The Razr sits tall and narrow in the hand, but Motorola has put the most important apps at the bottom, well within reach.

It opens fully flat, without a bend.

Closed up, it should fit into most pockets.

This foldable screen brings Motorola's iconic Razr brand into the modern day.

Thanks to a clever hinge system, the Razr's two halves fold flush, without a visible air gap between the sides of the screen.

However, flip it over and you can see that the jutting chin at the bottom of the phone creates enough rise to keep the plastic display from rubbing on most flat surfaces.

While the flip design will remind you of the original Motorola Razr from 2004, this new take is its own unique thing.

This flexible plastic OLED display is what makes the Razr's screen light up.

You'll definitely notice the crease in the right light, and you can feel it slightly when you rub your finger over the spot. However, it's less noticeable than you may think.

This is just about the only angle where the Motorola Razr stands on its own. Otherwise, it lays fully open or snaps shut with the aid of a magnetic closure.

The chin at the bottom houses the fingerprint reader and components like the phone's GPS and Wi-Fi modules, and the vibration motor.

I worried that the chin would make it hard to type. It didn't.
