Special Dubai drone display shows off relaunch of new Motorola Razr
Motorola Middle East

Was it a dream, or did we see a blast from the past over the skies of Dubai in the form of a Motorola Razr?

The old-school mobile (you know the one, cool kids) has had a shiny technological revamp, keeping in touch with the smartphone juggernauts and taking it a step further into the next generation. How so? With foldable screen technology.

To mark the relaunch of the nostalgic phone, Motorola Middle East put on a one-off drone display that saw drones form iconic words such as ‘hello Moto’ and even the titular flip phone itself – flipping.

Check it out below:

Randomly on the hunt for a new phone now? The Motorola Razr is set to be available across Dubai through Etisalat, du and select retail outlets by the end of February, priced around Dhs5,999.

However, if you already know you want it, you can pre-order the Razr now, exclusively with Etisalat with post-paid plans.

What can you expect? It boasts a 6.2-inch plastic OLED unfoldable display screen designed to withstand countless flippings. It is paper thin though, so don’t try snapping it back too hard.

Although, Motorola is so confident in its durability that it says not to put any protective screen on its phone. More dirhams for us.

Still, it’s impressive what would be a standard length of a smartphone can half its size, especially if it’s a display that can screen HD films and the latest mobile games.

It also boasts a 16MP front-facing camera for those top selfies, a 2.7-inch glass-covered OLED display that shows notifications and acts as user’s music controls. Apart from that, it’s all about the nostalgia value.
