Many of you might remember the Motorola Razr brand. It shot to stardom in 2005 when Motorola announced the Razr V3, a slim clamshell device at that time. It sold like crazy and 50 million units were shipped in a span of 2 years. Well, Motorola might be bringing the icon back to life. But in a possible new avatar.
At MWC 2018, Lenovo CEO spoke about the possibility of the Moto Razr’s comeback. Motorola which is now owned by Lenovo is working on foldable smartphone technology.

The CEO, Yang Yuanqing, was quizzed about the return of the Motorola Razr brand. He replied, “With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation in our smartphone design. So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon”.

The comments are not precisely clear whether Motorola wants to bring back the Razr phone as it is. Or whether it will be working on a foldable phone to don the Razr brand. However, this is not the first time the Lenovo rep. has spoken of the brand’s revival. Last year, he spoke to CNBC about the same prospect and since then nothing has been heard until now.

Also, Motorola working on a foldable phone is a new disclosure by the official as this signals yet another brand working on the new technology. Currently, Samsung seems to be spearheading the race with the foldable Galaxy X. As per current info, Samsung is poised to launch the foldable series by the end of this year.
