• The Moto Razr, Re-imagined as a Foldable All-Screen Phone



    Before anything else I need to make it perfectly clear that this is only a render. There has been no firm indication from Motorola that their iconic Razr, the impossibly-thin feature phone that conquered the world in the early 2000s, is making a comeback. All we have at the moment are unsubstantiated rumours.

    There is, however, some hard evidence that Moto is planning some sort of foldable smartphone.



    These illustrations, courtesy of the Dutch site Let's Go Digital, are from a filing submitted by Motorola to the World Intellectual Property Organization, clearly showing a device with a flexible hinge and display. Unfortunately that display bends along the device's vertical, rather than horizontal, axis. What difference does that make? Back to the render we go!



    Again, this is only one fan's flight of fancy, and in no way represents any confirmed hardware designs from Motorola. But hey, we can still dream, right?

      My excitement over Motorola products has gone away since owning one and finding out they don't ever do security updates, OS updates, or anything.

      What are you talking about? My Moto G received many updates over a couple of years, and I've had at least two of them with security patches for my G5 Plus over the last few months.

      My Moto G5 non-plus never did. It's pretty disappointing.

      Your carrier might be blocking them. If you put in an active SIM from another carrier, you might get updates. You should even be getting Oreo very soon.

      It took more time than the timeline in the above link said, but I got my Android 8.1 Oreo update for Moto G5 Plus today. It was version OPS28.85-17. I'm not sure whether I would have gotten it earlier by doing a manual check or trying a SIM on a different carrier. I never tried.

    It was when I was with them. Since it was a backup line, I moved it to RP since $5/month was cheaper (100 minutes enough).

    Another forum member (I don't remember who) knows a way to escalate a contact with TF to the highest technical level to get VoLTE provisioned. Maybe he'll chime in.
