Motorola Brings Back its Popular Foldable Razr Phone

Motorola’s plans for reviving its popular foldable phone have been highly speculated. Until now, developers tried to keep somehow the Razr’s name present in the Android world, but they didn’t quite succeed to impress with something particular. The newly made public Razr, however, appears to be of symmetry a little bit. The device risks to start a lot of criticism because foldable devices are just a return of the once-omnipresent clamshell design. Motorola, on the other hand, could face all the critic because the company has been tried many flexible technologies through time.

As a press release explained, “In 2015, a cross-functional team, comprised of engineers and designers from both Motorola and Lenovo, was assembled to start thinking about how we could utilize flexible display technology.” The upcoming device, however, will allegedly swap Samsung Galaxy Fold’s horizontal design, it will lose a little bit of its thin design, which made it so famous. However, an ultra-wide 6.2-inch display will surely impress anyone.

As for its running-system, Razr might get Android 9, but other details are still unknown. Users would also enjoy a “Retro Razr,” which it’ll precisely mimic the original metallic button design, placed on the bottom half of the screen. From all the known design details, it clearly shows that Motorola put an immense effort into developing some one-of-a-kind features, so popular amongst users. The upcoming Razr device will cost $1,499 and is set to be released in January 2020.

Motorola Razr – A Legacy Was Born

Motorola Razr impressed people with its unique style for the first time in 2004. The V3 series was the first available models, which caught quite the attention and remained still nowadays a well-appreciated device. Later on, the V3 got upgraded to V3i with an extraordinary collaboration with Apple for an iTunes add-on. The last Razr device was the Droid Razr for Verizon Wireless, followed by the Droid Razr Maxx. Currently, we expect a new product to be released soon, next year, with Motorola’s new promises for the best device so far, one that will keep the Razr legacy.
