Somewhere in the early 2000s launched , Then a proud American company, one of its biggest hits ever - the Razr V3, with a thin (or mouth-watering) oyster configuration and innovative design for the same period that earned it sales of tens of millions of units and several heirs. A decade and a half later, the Razr returns, this time under As a brand of Chinese Lenovo, it will try to prove to users that Modern ones don't have to have huge dimensions.

The new Razr is the third commercially available device with a flexible, folding screen, the first of which is horizontal and not vertical with a focus on offering a screen in the modern dimensions we are familiar with, a product of much more compact physical size that will certainly provoke nostalgia before the smartphone era (or At the very least, get started on the smart devices, which were several times smaller than what is now commonplace).

The active mouthpiece returns to our lives

The smartphone uses an ultra-long 6.2-inch POLED screen, with non-standard 2,142 × 876 pixels and standard plastic coating above it, plus a tiny OLED screen with glass cover at the front of 2.7-inch with 800 × 600 pixels resolution - and Snapdragon 710 economical octagon, 6GB dynamic memory, built-in 128GB non-expandable storage, Android Pie system, NFC built-in connectivity 802.11ac Dual Channel, Connectivity 5.0 and miniature 2,510mAh battery with 15 watt charging.

The new generation (right) is significantly wider than the original - but somehow manages to recreate the familiar design in a way that feels accurate and authentic

The modern Razr features a front-facing physical fingerprint scanner (in its closed position), First, single 16 megapixel resolution with f / 1.7 bright aperture key, 5 megapixel selfie camera inside a screen at the top of the main screen, connectivity based on eSIM technology only (without support for common physical SIM cards) and basic protection Very resistant to random drops of water.

We will not oppose the Razr marking a new and more interesting era in the design of smartphones that will gain popularity in the market - but in order for this to happen prices have to shrink, more and more

The folding smartphone body is narrower than most modern smartphones, but also relatively high in its open position and surprisingly heavy - 205 made, which reminds us that the same mechanical hinges that allow the display panel to fold add quite a bit of weight, even on a device that is not completely monstrous in all dimensions Like the folding Mate X of .

It is refreshing to see the Razr come back to life and offer a radically different alternative to the design and appearance of a smart device in 2019, or in 2020 to be more precise - because the creation of The stores will only arrive at the beginning of January, with a price tag of… 1,500 USD, excluding tax. Is there a way to justify such a cost for futuristic design but intermediate device hardware at best? Tell us what your impressions are in the comments.
