• Motorola has announced the Razr and Razr Plus foldable phones for the US market.
  • The Plus model packs a larger cover display and better chipset.
  • The Razr Plus is launching first, priced at $999.

Motorola was the first to reveal a clamshell foldable phone back in 2019, as the company’s reimagined Razr offered a folding screen. Samsung stole all the glory with the Galaxy Z Flip series though, beating Motorola to actually launching in markets. But the Lenovo-owned brand is back with new Razr foldables for the US market.

The company announced the 2023 Razr and Razr Plus today, and the two phones are both unsurprisingly clamshell foldables. They also share several features in common, such as a nifty IP52 rating for both splash and dust resistance, a respectable update pledge (three major OS updates and four years of security patches), and wireless ReadyFor support for connecting to external screens. Otherwise, they differ in a number of areas.
