Cinematic display

When held vertically, the narrow design means it is easy to use with just one hand. The display works in harmony with Motorola’s unique hinge design, offering the only zero gap closure on a foldable device that protects the internal display and keeps Razr ultra-compact. A taller display also means easier multi-tasking when needed.
