Motorola is going to bring back its old RAZR. Invitations are sent with tagline ‘you are going to flip’. This hints that it is going to unveil the RAZR foldable phone. In addition to that there is an animated teaser released with the image of RAZR. There is a statement on the image like ‘An original unlike other’ and also has the date 11.13.19.

As people are in curiosity to see this new model, Motorola announced its launch event in Los Angeles on 13th November. Earlier, Motorola stated that they are working on the foldable phone technology. With all these hints, we can say that it is going to bring back the old rockstar ‘RAZR’ which ruled the market at the time of mid 2000

From the time when Motorola was taken over by Lenovo, they have been working to introduce the RAZR V3 successfully in the market. This news was confirmed when the Motorola filed a patent for foldable phones with description same as RAZR.

According to WSJ, there will be exclusively $1500 Verizon versions and there will also be a limited edition with 200000 copies for the United States of India.

Motorola first launched RAZR V3 in the third quarter of 2004. At that time it had a thin profile and striking appearance. It was marketed as an exclusive fashion foldable phone and by 2006 it sold over 50 million mobiles.

Later for next 2 years, this RAZR model was in the top position beating out the LG and Samsung. RAZR V3 models were sold over 130 million in the four year long run. This made it the best selling clamshell phone in the world till date.

Rumors are always swindling around the world about RAZR. When Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery questioned about the patent of foldable phones, he stated that “the company would not pursue the design of having a foldable screen on the outside. Thus, it confirmed that people could expect a foldable phone, much-awaited RAZR”.

Unlike Huawei’s X Mate and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, it is clear that Motorola new phone will fold inward. Previously there were news that the company might launch this new foldable phone in 2019 summer time. Though it was not launched at that time, we can expect the renovated RAZR in to the market soon as the company invites for their launch event.

Rumors and leaks are showing that the upcoming model might have a primary display with 6.2 inches OLED folding screen. This when folded will become a secondary display with 600 x 800 pixel. Also, with foldable plugs there could be a charge, a USB-to-3.5mm adapter, a Type-C cable, and a pair of headphones.

According to CNET, the invitation reads that the event will feature special guests and musical performers, as well as “a journey through immersive experiences.”

Weibo recently leaked the images of this new models. Now people are all waiting for the Motorola launch event. Huawei and Samsung already displayed their phones and Huawei even delayed the launch of X Mate with the rumors of Motorola RAZR. So, we should wait and see till November 13th whether Motorola will again rule the market or not.
