Motorola has unveiled the highly-anticipated 'foldable' version of its iconic Razr phone - 15 years after the original made its debut.

The revived Razr comes with a 6.2-inch foldable plastic OLED HD (2142 x 876p) screen, which turns into a 2.7-inch glass-covered OLED (600 x 800p) when folded. Weighing 250 gm, it is 72 x 172 x 6.9mm in size when unfolded, and 72 x 94 x 14mm when closed. It is available in a Noir Black colour

The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, octa-core, 2.2 GHz, and comes with 128 GB of storage. It runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box.

As a tribute to the original, the makers of the phone have included a 'Retro Razr' mode in the new device, that sports a 16MP, f/1.7, 1.22um, EIS rear camera with dual-pixel autofocus (AF). There's also a 5MP front shooter.

The phone's smart camera comes with Google Lens that can recognise text, making search much simpler.

There's a 2510 mAh battery, and it supports 15W TurboPower charging.

With a water-repellent design, that aims to protect the phone inside and out, the tech company is ensuring that users don't have to worry about spills and splashes, or taking their phone out in the rain.

The phone is priced at $1,499 and will be available for pre-order from December 26, with the units going on sale from January 9.
