Moto Razr 2019 Features Overview
Moto Razr 2019 sports a foldable 6.2 inches display that comes with the big-notch display design we see in most smartphones recently. The screen is made of plastic which allows it to freely fold. When the device is folded, there is a smaller 2.7 inches screen with 600 by 800 pixels resolution.

Moto Razr 2019 has about 70.2% screen to body ratio, there is a big bezel at the bottom of the screen that harbors a button where the fingerprint is embedded. The main display has a resolution of 876 by 2142 px with 373 pixels per-square inch which will provide top notch viewing experience.
Moto Razr 2019 is equipped with 6GB RAM coupled with a 128GB ROM for internal storage purposes, there is no external SD card space on the Razr phone, it also uses e-SIM. The device treats you to a Qualcomm SDM710 Snapdragon 710 (10 nm) chipset with Octa-core (2×2.2 GHz 360 Gold & 6×1.7 GHz Kryo 360 Silver) processor.
The Moto Razr 2019 phone comes with a single camera setup on the back – featuring a 16MP main camera with dual LED flash, this might be quite disappointing as we expected the phone to have at least 2 rear cameras for depths and more accurate portrait effects.
Another not-so-impressive feature of this phone is the Android 9.0 (Pie) it boots out of the box, Android 10 would have been the killer. We only hope there is a planned upgrade to Android 10 for the device.
For selfies, Moto Razr 2019 uses a 5MP front camera which might appear below par for most people, there is no front flash for the front camera. The device uses a front-mounted fingerprint scanner for more convenient unlocking of the device and adequate security features.
Moto Razr 2019 is available in just one color variant which is the Noir Black, a non-removable 2510 mAh battery sits under the hood to keep the power going. The phone supports fast charge technology with up to 15w.
