There has been a lot of buzz around the resurrected Razr from Motorola and its folding mobile phone. However, a new Evan Blass picture (as revealed by Engadget) indicates that the only surprise Motorola has in store for 2020 is not a nostalgia match. We see a typical-looking moto phone with a hole-punch selfie camera in the shot, but next to it, there is an astonishing accessory: a stylus.
The dual-tone stylus has two buttons and a rounded soft tip at its end. At the bottom left of the display, there is a small indent while Samsung’s S Pen usually slots into the Galaxy Note’s bottom right. The front design of the phone is quite similar to recent releases on Moto.
There is not much to proceed beyond that. The date on the phone’s screen reads Tuesday, April 3rd, but April 3rd falls this year on a Friday. It is not yet clear whether this device will even make its way to the US, where Samsung dominates the Android world, or whether Motorola, with its first stylus-packing handset in years, will focus on international markets instead. LG also competes with some of its lower-priced phones in the stylus group.
Well, we have to be curious to see what tricks Motorola is showing its stylus, more than that. Is it just a tool, or something more, for specific screen interactions? Over the years, Samsung has packed up a ton of features in the S Pen, but with Note 10’s hand-wave gestures, it dipped into novelty territory a bit.
The price of this phone will probably determine how advanced Motorola’s stylus is. At next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Motorola was able to unveil the stylus phone. Until then, the Razr and its potential lumps are still taking a back seat.
