The phone struggling with the mid-'90s was undoubtedly the Moto RAZR, which exuded futuristic style with its thin shell shell design and aluminum shell. Many millions were sold before it was usurped by better devices, but now it looks like Lenovo – Motorola's current parent company – will bring it back.
According to the Wall Street Journal (via The Verge), Lenovo will try to do this Use the nostalgia factor, a growing trend in consumer electronics, and launch a brand new RAZR branded device. Little is known about the plans, but the rumors suggest that the display will have a foldable display similar to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy F.
It's not clear if the phone is running Android, but since all current Lenovo and Motorola mobile devices do, it's most likely. It's also not the first time an Android phone has been released with the RAZR branding. According to the WSJ report, the phone is currently in the test phase and could be released in February as an exclusive Verizon exclusive product.
Nothing is known yet about specifications and the exact form factor, but Lenovo hopes to build more than 200,000 new RAZR models and sell them for $ 1
With February almost behind us, the rumors about the Verizon launch do not seem all that big, but will we see this RAZR folder? To hear a few recent statements from a Motorola manager sounds like a very different possibility.
In a conversation with Engadget, Motorola VP of Global Product, Dan Dery, confirmed the company's interest in folding screens:
"We started working on folding units a long time ago … and we've done a lot of iteration"  While this does not help us narrow the timetable, it does add some credibility to the original report. With more and more companies engaging in Falttelefon enthusiasm, Moto is better not to dawdle if it wants to grab the attention of shoppers.
