Moto Razr Unboxing: Unfolding the new Razr
Back in my college days I would have given an arm and a leg for the Moto Razr, but couldn’t afford one. Now, A decade or so later, Moto Razr is back in a foldable Avatar — and I probably still can’t afford one.
Motorola is yet to announce the India price for this slick foldable, but we did get to spend some quality time with the handset at Motorola’s India office. Before we talk about our Moto Razr first impressions (Which we will after we have a price perspective), let’s talk about what comes in the box.
Before we proceed, here’s a quick rundown of the specifications.

Moto Razr Box Content
As Motorola puts it, the Razr experience begins right from the moment you unbox, or rather ‘unfold’ the box.
And this is no ordinary box. The curious cuboid packaging has a transparent lid and once you are done sliding it open, you will be greeted with the phone standing upright. There is cushioning to protect the screen while the Razr is in transit.
The case doubles as a stand and a boombox. Which is to say that the chamber can amplify music playing on the Moto Razr and output it via tiny holes along the base. There’s no passage to plug in your charger, and if you already have your DIY hat on, moto cautions that poking any hole should desecrate the audio amplifying champer.
The box is diagonally split in two and a premium-finish, triangular prism-shaped case is tucked right behind the Razor. And this one has all cool accessories and essentials stuffed inside.
The mini-box contents include 18W Turbo charging adaptor, braided Type-C cable for charging and data transfer, a 3.5mm audio jack to Type-C dongle, premium looking Type-C headphones, different size ear tips, and documentation.
There is no SIM ejector PIN, the otherwise mandatory box ingredient, and that’s because the Motor Razr has an eSIM.
Motorola has definitely made the box special and that’s definitely a good start for a device as distinctive as the Razr. As for the phone, we will be back soon with our first impressions of the phone and to discuss what we loved and what we didn’t. For now, Moto is banking on the cool factor of foldable, nostalgia and its unique hinge that has been designed to keep the evil crease in check.
