Along with the hype and excitement surrounding foldable phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Fold Foldable Phone and Huawei Mate X Foldble Phone we’ve seen disappointment: delays, undesirable folding mechanisms and other concerns.

Just when it seemed folding phones might have been nothing more than a passing fad, we were introduced to the Motorola Razr foldable phone, an updated version of the nostalgic Razr of yesteryear.

Featuring a folding screen, an innovative hinge and Moto’s version of Android, the new Razr truly is a 2020 take on the original flip phone and is undoubtedly one of the most novel phones in recent memory. Let’s take a look inside the box.

Editor’s note: This post has been updated to include our latest Razr unboxing. It features the same box and phone you’ll be able to purchase in stores, after it arrived early following a preorder.

Motorola made the box the Razr comes in just as unique as the phone itself. Unlike the coffin-like boxes the iPhone 11 or Samsung Galaxy Note 10 are packaged in, the Razr comes standing upright with a transparent lid that lets you see the phone before you open it. The box resembles a burr grinder for coffee.

The top half lifts up to reveal the phone nestled in a jauntily angled base. More
