Motorola’s vertically folding RAZR shown in leaked renders

Press renders claiming to show the unannounced Motorola RAZR V4 have appeared online in a now-deleted post on Weibo. The images were later reuploaded to SlashLeaks. If real, the renders are our first look at the phone’s design outside of a patent, and they appear to confirm its notched folding screen design. GSMArena notes that the images show a wireless charging stand that’s included with the phone alongside a typical range of accessories, all housed within a neat triangular prism-shaped package.

The look of the RAZR shown in the renders lines up with the design shown in a patent spotted back in January, although it’s impossible to see if it confirms a separate rumor about a second display on the front of the device. Unlike its competitors from Samsung and Huawei, the RAZR appears to fold vertically rather than horizontally. The design means it’s a phone that folds to become more portable, rather than a tablet that folds to be the size of a phone. According to The Wall Street Journal’s original report, the phone will cost $1,500 when it’s eventually released.

When that will be is anyone’s guess. When Motorola confirmed it was working on a new RAZR back in February, it said that it would come out, “[no] later than everybody else in the market.” However, with no firm launch dates announced for its competitors, the delayed Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, Motorola’s statement is much less clear.
