Motorola’s ultra-thin, reverse phone was quite a rage in the early 2000s, before Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy phones had launched. In its new avatar, the Motorola Razr could be a foldable smartphone with a premium price tag, according to The Wall Street Journal. Lenovo, Motorola’s owner, could bring back the Razr smartphone using a foldable display.
The report also states that Lenovo is working with US telecom important Verizon to start the telephone in February. The revamped Motorola Razr could be costly at $1,500 (roughly Rs. 1,04,300). That’s quite a high cost for a device that shouts nostalgia.
Lenovo-owned Motorola has not confirmed the report yet. The telephone set a sexy new fad among young cell phone users, thanks to its ultra-thin stylish design. The phone reportedly sold over 130 million units in just four decades.
Nonetheless, this isn’t the first time Motorola and Verizon have attempted to bring back the Razr brand of mobile phones. Back in 2011 and 2012, the firms had worked on launching Droid Razr branded Android smartphones using a thin form factor. The Droid Razr was the thinnest mobile phone on the planet as it started.
When most things still remain unclear regarding the brand new Motorola Razr smartphone, we are expecting a fair share of foldable smartphones this season. Last week in CESwe spotted that the Royole FlexPai, the planet’s first foldable smartphone. Samsung’s Galaxy F is also expected to launch shortly while many additional companies are allegedly secretly working in their own foldable phones and devices.
If Lenovo does bring back the Motorola Razr, it may brighten up the Motorola brand once more. 1 thing remains certain, we will see a great deal of foldable cell phones in 2019.
