Today marks the end of February and Motorola failed to deliver what it promised last month. The company reportedly planned to showcase their upcoming RAZR foldable phone at this year’s MWC but it now truly belongs to Samsung and Huawei as far as the foldable phones are concerned as there was no sign of Motorola’s promised foldable device.
Does this mean Motorola took a U-turn from the project? Not really. The Lenovo-backed company is as hopeful as other industry giants about foldable phones and emphasized on the need to make the RAZR foldable phone ready for the primetime before it’s too late. In an interview with Engadget, Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery said that Motorola has “no intention of coming later than everybody else in the market.”
Motorola, however, won’t follow the conventional path. Although not confirmed, Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Fold and Huawei’s Mate X, Motorola hopes their RAZR foldable phone will have a single screen that folds twice, thanks to the dual-hinge mechanism. I think this would look like a big brother to the original Motorola RAZR flip phone. One of the reasonings behind opting for a single display as the company suggests is that since the screen is always in front of your face and never gets exposure to another side, it is very much protected from scratches.
Since the VP himself has confirmed that it has no intention to delay the launch date to distant future we might see RAZR foldable phone in action in a month or two.
