The new Motorola Razr 2020 price needs to be folded in half to make it a foldable champion Motorola Razr 2020

The Motorola Razr 2020 fixes several of the shortcomings in the original Razr, but it’s still too expensive to abandon for my boring-looking phone. Which is a tragedy, because flipping it open in front of people will always be so, so cool.

At $1,399 / £1,399 (around AU$1,922), it’s disheartening to know that the unique clamshell foldable style is out of my (and many consumers’) price range. In an era of stagnated phone design where every new phone is a black rectangle with maybe a curved display, the Razr 2019 offered a refreshingly different way to carry around and use phones, even if it launched with enough rough edges to feel like a first-generation device.
