Motorola’s Iconic RAZR Phone Likely To Make A Comeback

Once known as the cool kids’ phone of choice, recent reports reveal Motorola’s iconic RAZR mobile phone could be making a comeback, following hints dropped by Lenovo’s CEO at Mobile World Congress 2018.

Back in 2014, Lenovo purchased the remnants of Motorola’s mobile phone business from Google.

The renowned Motorola RAZR was one of the company’s most successful products, selling about 130 million units during its time.

The news comes as several phone makers continue re-introducing retro designs. Last year, HMD Global revived the Nokia 3310, and at MWC 2018 the famous ‘banana phone’ (Nokia 8110) was revived.

According to Tech Radar, Lenovo’s CEO, Yang Yuanqing, alluded to the possibility of RAZR phone resurrection whilst chatting to a small group of journalists at MWC 2018.

“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 asked if he was explicitly referencing the Motorola RAZR, Yuanqing replied, “I think I have already answered the question”.

As a possible teaser, just two years ago Motorola released a video featuring the RAZR – a move which no doubt evoked high school memories for many Gen-Ys.

Consumers will have wait and see whether Motorola launches a brand-new smartphone ‘inspired’ by the RAZR, or a revamped version of the old-school goodie.
