    Motorola has recently acquired patent for a new foldable phone, dubbed as Razr 2. The patent reveals the phone will come with as many as eight sensors on the side panel. The sensors can be used for multiple purposes and vary depending upon whether the phone is folded or unfolded. Called 'cumulative sensor mode', the phone could support two sensors at one go as well. According to reports, Razr 2 touch sensors can perform 20 different functions and 20 different gestures.

    The leaked design also reveals Motorola's plans to shift fingerprint sensor location. The next generation foldable phone will come with an in-screen fingerprint sensor, similar to recent premium and some mid-range smartphones. The current Razr has a dedicated fingerprint sensor at the base.

    Motorola Razr launched earlier this month. Priced at $1,499 (1,08,200 approximately), Moto Razr is quite cheaper than Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold. The phone comes with a clamshell design featuring 6.2-inch pOLED foldable display (fully opened) with 21:9 aspect ratio and 2,142x876 pixels resolution and a 2.7-inch OLED touchscreen.
