A YouTube channel has released a new concept design, and this time around we get to take a look at the Motorola Razr Fold, as the source calls this device. This concept phone seems to be inspired by the Motorola Razr (2019) that is expected to become Motorola's very first foldable smartphone, and launch this year. The phone's name is inspired by it, and its foldable nature, but not its design.

We'll just go right ahead and say it, this phone looks too good to be true, and it's quite different from the foldable smartphone patent Motorola claimed a while back. Motorola's patented phone actually looks like a regular clamshell phone on the outside, and it folds inwards, while this concept device folds outwards, and it's different in pretty much every way, it has more in common with the Huawei Mate X than it does with Motorola's patent.

This phone has a huge foldable display, and that display does not fold right down the middle, as only about two-thirds of it change direction when the phone is folded, as that part of the display needs to fit next to the phone's camera setup on the back. Speaking of which, the device includes three cameras on the back, and what seems to be a quad-LED flash. Those cameras are raised on the back, along with a part of the phone, and when the phone's display folds, it fits right next to that bump, similar to the Huawei Mate X, actually.

Bezels on this phone areā€¦ well, unrealistically thin, and it would be interesting to see how would people use this device, as there's basically nothing to grip here, accidental presses would probably be a considerable issue. It is hard to deny that the device looks stunning, though, and those non-existent bezels are one of the reasons why. The phone's main display seems to have a rather high display aspect ratio, and a fingerprint scanner seems to be placed below the display.

The device seems to be made out of metal and glass, and it's extremely thin. TechConfigurations also envisioned some specifications for this phone, just for the fun of it. The source claims that this concept phone sports 48, 20, and 16-megapixel cameras, which act as both its rear and front-facing units, depending on whether the device is folded or not.

A piezoelectric earpiece has also been envisioned for this phone, as an actual earpiece is nowhere to be found. The Snapdragon 855 64-bit octa-core processor fuels this imaginary smartphone, while the device also sports 8GB of RAM and a 5,500mAh battery. The phone's main display measures 7.5 inches, while that display breaks into 4-inch and 3-inch panels when the phone is folded.

A Type-C USB port is included on the device, as is a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device also includes stereo speakers, and it is shown in a number of color variants in this video, including dark gray / black, copper, blue, and purple. The designer even goes as far as to show a part of this phone's software, to make the imaginary device even more interesting. The whole concept video is embedded down below if you'd like to check it out, and it has a duration of about two minutes.
