The images seem to confirm a design that bears striking resemblance to the original Motorola Razr

At the bottom of the phone there appears to be a rather large plastic piece which is speculated to house a home button or a fingerprint reader. 

Once flipped open the phone will have one seamless display similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold or Huawei’s folding Mate X. 

Previous reports suggest the device will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor and come with 4GB or 6GB of RAM with options for 64GB or 128GB of storage.  

Patents filed by Motorola earlier this year, show indicate that the phone will also have a medium-sized display on the outside of the device.

The original Razr was wildly popular and helped to solidify the popularity of flip phones over their hinge-less counterparts

According to previous reports from the Wall Street Journal, the phone may end up being a bit pricier than its predecessors. 

Reports suggest that it could retail for as much as $1,500 when its released. 

It wouldn’t mark the first time that Motorola has attempted to resurrect the Razr name.

In 2011, the company partnered with Verizon to launch the Droid Razr, a smartphone that didn’t replicate the original flip phone design, but instead featured a 4.3-inch display and claimed to be the ‘world’s thinnest smartphone’ at 7.1mm thick. 

Once released, the new folding Razr will compete with several other competitors that also offer folding displays, like Samsung, Huawei, and more.
