Motorola's New Foldable Display RAZR Will Have a $1,500 Price Tag

Expect a bit of a design overhaul since the last time you saw the Razr

WSJ also noted that Motorola Razr will be a foldable phone but it's not clear if they meant foldable as in flip phones or an actual foldable phone like the one Samsung showed at their Developer Conference.

In 2011, the company partnered with Verizon to launch the Droid Razr, a smartphone that didn't replicate the original flip phone design, but instead featured a 4.3-inch display and claimed to be the "world's thinnest smartphone" at 7.1mm thick.

Lenovo will soon make a push to cash in on the distinguished Razr name, with a report from The Wall Street Journal detailing a partnership between the device's maker and Verizon to sell a new foldable Razr phone in the United States as early as February.

That makes the rumored decision to sell a limited-run, $1,500 foldable phone a unusual one.

Motorola didn't immediately reply to a request for comment. Motorola's parent company, Lenovo, is the one working on the new model. However, there is a probability the release date of the Motorola RAZR changes as it hasn't yet been finalized.

The Droid Razr hoped to capitalize on the original Razr's success, but it ultimately produced lackluster sales.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack via its Amaq news agency, saying one of its members detonated a suicide vest. The announcement rattled allies in the region and top US officials, including Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis who quit.

While this wouldn't be the first time Motorola has tried to revive the Razr brand, this makes sense.

Details on the design have been kept under wraps, because the phone is yet to be officially announced. Good news. A new version of the ultrathin phone, hugely popular upon its 2004 release, is expected to hit the market as soon as next month.

The comeback of the Motorola Razr looks to be of limited scope initially.

By resurrecting the Razr this year, Lenovo is aiming to tap into an increasing number of consumers who are content to hold onto their older phones longer, the Journal said.

Foldable displays in smartphones are a new category that'll be making their way to the market in 2019.
