Motorola’s ultra-thin, flip phone was quite a rage back in the early 2000s, even before Apple’s iPhone along with Samsung’s Galaxy phones had launched. In its new avatar, the Motorola Razr may be a foldable smartphone with a premium price tag, according to The Wall Street Journal. Lenovo, Motorola’s proprietor, could bring back the Razr smartphone using a foldable display.
The report also claims that Lenovo is operating with US telecom major Verizon to start the phone in February. The revamped Motorola Razr may be costly at $1,500 (roughly Rs. 1,04,300). That is quite a high cost for a device that screams nostalgia.
Lenovo-owned Motorola hasn’t confirmed the report nonetheless. The Motorola Razr had released initially in 2004 dubbed as the Razr V3. The phone set a hot new fad among young mobile phone usersthanks to its ultra-thin stylish layout. The telephone reportedly sold over 130 million units in four years.
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 launch Droid Razr branded Android smartphones using a thin form element. The Droid Razr has been the thinnest mobile phone on the planet when it started.
When most things still remain unclear about the new Motorola Razr smartphone, we’re anticipating a reasonable share of tablets this year. Last week in CESwe spotted the Royole FlexPai, the world’s first foldable smartphone. Samsung’s Galaxy F can also be expected to launch shortly while many otherfirms are supposedly secretly working on their own foldable telephones and apparatus .
If Lenovo does bring back the Motorola Razr, it could brighten up the Motorola brand once again. 1 thing remains certain, we’ll see a lot of foldable mobile phones in 2019.
