As far as its features are concerned, the external "closed display" on the Razr won't have full access to all Android features. Instead, it will support some pre-installed apps like Moto Display, Moto Actions, and Moto Camera.

Moreover, upto 6 Quick Setting tiles will be displayed on the external display, but it's unclear if users will be able to scroll to see more tiles.

Separately, some leaked press renders revealed the packaging of Motorola Razr.

The phone will come in a triangular prism-like box containing a bunch of black colored accessories including a wall charger, a USB Type-C cable, a pair of headphones, and a USB-C to 3.5mm audio adapter.

The presence of this adapter suggests that the phone will not have a headphone jack.

Price

Motorola Razr could be priced at around $1,500

Regarding the launch of its first foldable phone, Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery had earlier confirmed that the company had "no intention of coming later than everybody else in the market."

However, given the recent debacle of Samsung foldable phone, launch details are dicey.

As for pricing, the Wall Street Journal has reported that the phone could be priced at around $1,500.
