Back in 2004, if you owned a Moto Razr V3, you were one of the cool kids. With it’s stylish design and thin form factor, it was a clamshell phone unlike any other. Through the years, smartphone technology has advanced at breakneck speeds, but the sense of nostalgia surrounding the original Moto Razr has remained strong. Cut to 2020, and this nostalgia is exactly what Motorola is banking on with the Motorola razr, a reimagined Moto Razr in a modern avatar, complete with a foldable display. Ahead of the Motorola razr’s launch in India, I had the chance to check out the device at a media briefing. While I’ll talk more about the smartphone in my first impressions, for now, let me take you through the Motorola razr’s box contents.
The Motorola razr’s packaging is unique, to say the least. Instead of the standard flat box, you get a tall, geometric enclosure, all in black. The top features a transparent lid with Motorola branding, letting you peek at what’s inside. Lifting up the lid, you’ll find the Motorola razr standing upright (i.e., unfolded), since the base doubles up as a stand. If you look closely at the stand, you’ll see several tiny holes at the base that look like a speaker. While this isn’t a loudspeaker per se, it serves to amplify the sound coming out of the razr’s bottom-firing speaker.
Tucked behind the stand you’ll find an accessory case that looks like one you’d put your sunglasses in. Inside this you’ll find an 18W TurboPower wall charger, Type-C charging cable, Type-C headphones with Moto branding, extra eartips in different sizes, a 3.5mm to Type-C adapter (if you want to use any 3.5mm wired headphones you have lying around) and documentation. All the cables are braided (including the adapter) which is a nice touch. The case is of good quality, and you could actually use it for your sunglasses, if you want. Plus, the Motorola razr fits in too, although I’m not convinced many will use it for this purpose.
That rounds up the list of the Motorola razr’s box contents. Motorola has paid close attention to the packaging, and extras like the braided cables and “speaker” stand are a nice touch. Stay tuned for my first impressions of the device, coming up shortly.
