Motorola’s ultra-thin, reverse phone was rather a rage in the early 2000s, even before Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy telephones had started. Lenovo, Motorola’s owner, could bring back the Razr smartphone using a foldable screen.
The report also claims that Lenovo is working with US telecom major Verizon to launch the telephone in February. The revamped Motorola Razr could be priced at $1,500 (approximately Rs. 1,04,300). That is quite a high price for a device that screams nostalgia.
Lenovo-owned Motorola hasn’t confirmed the report yet. The Motorola Razr had published originally in 2004 dubbed as the Razr V3. The telephone set a hot new trend among young mobile phone usersthanks to its ultra-thin stylish layout. The telephone reportedly sold over 130 million units in just four decades.
Nonetheless, this is not the first time Motorola and Verizon have attempted to bring back the Razr brand of mobile phones. Back in 2011 and 2012, the companies had worked on launch Droid Razr branded Android smartphones using a thin form factor. The Droid Razr was the thinnest mobile phone on the planet when it started.
While most things still stay unclear regarding the brand new Motorola Razr smartphone, we’re expecting a fair share of foldable smartphones this season. Last week in CESwe seen that the Royole FlexPai, the planet’s first foldable smartphone. Samsung’s Galaxy F is also expected to launch shortly while many additional firms are allegedly secretly working in their own foldable telephones and devices.
One thing remains certain, we will see a lot of foldable cell phones in 2019.
