Motorola may be looking to follow the trend Nokia initiated by reviving iconic devices that were once popular. Motorola, which is now owned by Lenovo is looking to bring back the Razr Flip phone. To recall, the Razr series of phones were once popular for being the thinnest devices on the market.
In May 2016, when the company introduced the Moto Z, a video about the Moto Razr was also teased. Following that, there wasn’t any official word about the phone’s launch, until now. With the advancements in technology and companies trying to push the limit with bendable and foldable screens, the Moto Razr’s comeback may be sooner than ever.
To top that, CEO of Lenovo, Yang Yuanqing has hinted at MWC about its launch. He stated, “with the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design”. This indirectly was referred to the Moto Razr. To confirm if he was specifically talking about the flip phone, he hinted by saying, “I think I have already answered the question.”
The Moto Razr was one of the most aesthetically designed devices of its time. With companies like Nokia managing to connect with people totally based on the nostalgia factor, the Moto Razr is likely to win people’s hearts as well. The cherry on the cake would be if Motorola can actually pull off a futuristic foldable display and manage to keep it sleek. We surely would love to see it happen, however, we’d most likely have to wait a while for the phone to see the light of day. What are your views on this? Do stay tuned as we bring the most exciting news from MWC 2018.
