ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsThe Motorola RAZR has been that one nostalgic smartphone we all want to see make a return but with updated features. According to a new report by The Wall Street Journal, the foldable display version of the Motorola RAZR will make a comeback, but will cost $1500. The original RAZR was one of the most popular and iconic phones before the iPhone was unveiled and it looks like Motorola wants to cash-in on the nostalgia. The new RAZR smartphone is expected to be launched in the US as an exclusive device with network carrier Verizon. The report suggests that the device is still in testing and further details are yet to be confirmed. © Concept Design This is not the first time Motorola has launched a smartphone with the RAZR branding, as we saw two smartphones in 2011 and 2012 respectively with the same branding. Having said that, the two smartphones did not have the flip device which was one of the reasons why it was not well received back in the day. As of now, there is no word on its specifications such as the screen size, its functionality or what is powering the smartphone under the hood. It is expected that Lenovo (the company that owns Motorola) will follow the original design of the RAZR and have a tall folding device. This design choice will be different from what we have already seen from Samsung and Huawei in the past week. © YouTube The WSJ reports go on to detail that Lenovo will manufacture over 2 Lakh RAZR devices and will be sold as more of a luxury product. The hefty price tag of $1,500 (Roughly Rs 1,06,700) definitely defines it as a luxury product, considering foldable smartphones are expensive to manufacture right now. The original RAZR V3 managed to sell over 130 million units back in the day and if Lenovo implements the folding display technology correctly, the company can achieve this goal in the near future.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIf you've been using smartphones since the early 2000s, you may remember the iconic Motorola RAZR and how it took over the world. The slick flip phone was probably the hottest looking smartphone that everyone owned. It was a marvel when it came to the aesthetics, however, the hinges kept breaking easily. It was the first phone that generated a “craze” among the consumers and now, it seems like it will be making a comeback. According to Wall Street Journal's sources, the new phone is expected to launch soon. Photo: © YouTube (Main Image) © YouTube Lenovo, the company that also owns Motorola, is now looking to revive the nostalgic phone, however, there is some rather bad news if you thought you could get it easily. Rumours suggest that the Motorola RAZR will launch in partnership with U.S. Carrier 'Verizon'. However, that's not the disappointing development, it's the staggering price. The price tag that Lenovo will ask for this piece of nostalgia is a mind-numbing $1500 (Rs 1,06,990). That's a hefty price tag for a piece of nostalgia if you ask me. It seems like that this price tag will obviously not result in good sales numbers. © Motorola Apart from the fact that this is a folding phone, there's no news about its specifications, design or anything else. We could speculate that a phone that folds, better have two screens or great specifications that would make it worthy of paying that hefty price tag. There's a good chance that it might a fully foldable phone which could justify its high price tag. As of now, this particular Motorola RAZR phone is just a part of a rumour which should be taken with a pinch of salt. Who knows what the device will look like and what specifications it has to offer. For now, we just hope it's a real device and delivers the same spectacular device as its older counterpart. Source: Wall Street Journal
