Motorola's new RAZR 40 and RAZR 40 Ultra (the RAZR (2023) and RAZR Plus (2023) in North America) have been announced alongside a color-popping Viva Magenta version of its good-looking Edge 40

The lower-cost RAZR 40 starts at £799.99, making it the most affordable flip phone to date, while the pricier RAZR 40 Ultra costs £1099.99. While both phones are only confirmed for Europe, the North American variants look set to cost a fair bit less, with the RAZR Plus launching at just $999, and the standard RAZR 2023 price still to be confirmed.
