Release date and availability

For Europe, there was no date confirmed from Motorola but it should be at some point in December. They also will be releasing it in Australia, Asia, and South America at some point in the future.
The 2019 version of the Razr looks just like its predecessor. Apart from the sizeable foldable display, you can see when you open it up. Also, the secondary display is even more prominent now and more useful.
Motorola worked with Lenovo to make the hinge and, uses a complex mechanism of multiple hinges, sliding plates, and more to fold and unfold the phone. The phone lives up to the hype folds and unfolds smoothly and the crease is not visible.
