Motorola RAZR has been rumoured to return as a $1,500 foldable phone
Date: 17 January 2019
Once upon a time, a long time ago, RAZR phones were very famous and on top of the world. Today, Lenovo and Verizon have been rumoured to pull a fast one on us and raise these former kings from the dead. WSJ reported that the new Motorola RAZR phones will be available by February, but exclusively from US carriers.
According to sources, the foldable phones would be priced around $1,500. The said phones are still being tested, hence the launch date has not been set.
As at last year, the CEO for Lenovo teased us with the possibility of the new RAZR and a few patent drawings showed some flip phones with a foldable screens. There was also a talk of a MotoMod as well, but so far there has been no further news on that.
$1,500 seems to be a sweet spot for the foldable phone as they have been noted to range from the $1,300 FlexPai to $1,800 for the Galaxy F. The original RAZR’s were not originally mass market devices, but still, they were hardly niche handsets like these foldable phones.
