The interest in foldable smart phones has seriously picked up over the last few years. Devices like the Samsung Galaxy fold and Huawei Mate X have given users a glimpse into having the ability to fold up two screens into the form factor of a regular smartphone.
Now Motorola have thrown their hat into the ring with the long rumored Foldable Razr V4. Images of the rebooted Razr leaked on Thursday evening through Dutch tech website Mobielkopen, and via reputable leaker, Evan Blass. Most people already knew about Motorola’s intentions to redesign their iconic phone, but these images provide a clear example of what the final product could look like.

The leaked images show a phone that looks remarkably similar the original Razr V3 with the top half of the device folding into itself, but where the previous Razr had buttons on the bottom half, the new device will do away with the button layout and make use of a foldable screen instead.
The Razr V4 is rumored to have a 6.2 inch OLED display which makes it quite a bit smaller than the 7.3 inch display on the Galaxy Fold. Keeping in line with the original design, the outside of the device will feature a smaller secondary screen to display information like the time, weather, or notifications. If rumors are to be believed, the secondary screen will have a resolution of only 600 x 800 megapixels.
Sticking with the rumor theme, the new device will be announced on November 13 and is said to run on Snapdragon 710 with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM, and between 64BG and 128BG of storage. Possibly the most astonishing thing about the Razr V4 is the price. The device is estimated to sell for a R22,500 ($1500).
