Motorola RAZR is one of the popular phones from the company as it had sold 130 million units since its launch in 2004. The revamped edition of Motorola RAZR Flip Phone was not launched in 2016 so as the company had unveiled the Motorola Moto Z with modular capabilities.
HMD Global has also launched revamped edition of older phones like Nokia 3310 and Nokia 8110. Now Lenovo is also planning for RAZR.
In May 2016, Lenovo had released a teaser(watch the teaser below) that suggested that it will be bringing back the older Motorola RAZR flip phone but It did not happen. During a press meet at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018, Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing hinted that the company may relaunch the RAZR phone with foldable design.
When Yuanqing was asked whether the company would be reviving the Motorola RAZR, he responded by saying, “With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design. So hopefully what you just described (referring to the Moto RAZR brand) will be developed or realized very soon.”
When he was specifically asked whether he was talking about the Motorola RAZR, he said, “I think I have already answered the question.”
Motorola is expected to soon debut the Moto G6 and G6 Plus smartphones. It is also rumored to release Moto Z3, Z3 Play, and Z3 Plus in summer year. The company will be also releasing Moto X5 this year.
