A limited edition of the legendary Motorola RAZR clamshell will reappear on the electronics market. The current owner of the brand, Lenovo Corporation, plans to re-release the once popular push-button model in a modern design. The 2019 phone is being marketed as a limited edition niche model.
The announced Motorola phone of the 2019 version will receive one of the most fashionable modern "chips" - a flexible display on an OLED matrix, capable of withstanding reusable deformations without breakage. Folding the screen will be possible thanks to the flexible center section.
Flexible displays are becoming the main trend for the coming year, along with the nostalgic theme of the re-launch of the once popular mobile devices in a modern design. Models with folding screens are being prepared by Samsung and Huawei, the finished smartphone has already been shown by the little-known company Royole. At the same time, Microsoft developers are working on the compatibility of Windows 10 with flexible and dual-screen devices. Another popular Nokia brand is also actively involved in the theme of nostalgia, having already re-released modern versions of the Nokia 3310 and Nokia 8110 models and preparing the release of the 2019 version of the Nokia N9 smartphone.
The presentation of the updated folding phone Motorola RAZR is expected in February. The exact parameters of the future novelty, its software, technical components, screen size are not yet available. The model is now undergoing final testing. Motorola's 2019 design is also unknown, although the company's patent filing for the foldable device may reveal a bit about the overall look.
Lenovo, long suspected of working on the RAZR project, has revealed its intentions after its patent was spotted for a smartphone with a flexible screen, similar in appearance to the Motorola RAZR. The document contains a technical description of the device, where it can be seen that the folding screen folds inward along the wide side. When folded, the model bears little resemblance to its push-button predecessor.
Lenovo estimates the novelty at $ 1,500 and plans to release an updated RAZR model in the amount of 200 thousand units. The company has an optimistic forecast regarding the implementation, assuming that the popular clamshell Motorola RAZR V3 once sold 130 million copies.
