There were rumors that Motorola would bring foldable phones in the market soon and these rumors seem to be true now. Motorola is about to sell the new foldable phones this summer which is said to be an update of the classic Razr flip phone. The design of this phone will not be like the Huawei Mate X or Samsung Galaxy Fold. Motorola too is getting into the flip phones. The new device will cost around $1,500 and is said to be a revival of the Razr brand. In the summers, there will be other launches like the Galaxy Fold and the Mate X as well. These devices have already created a lot of buzz in the market. These phones have larger displays. However, the Motorola phone is a smaller foldable device. The Razr’s design is based on the schematics of the patent that was discovered by blog 91Mobiles.
The design of the new flip phone of Motorola has some important advantages. First, it protects the display screen after it is folded. It will also be more compact, considering the fact that it will be the mimic of the original phone. Razr has been a highly recognizable brand. It has been a helping hand to Motorola’s success for many years when it comes to flip phones. Their ultra-thin phone started with the price of $500 initially and was a very successful phone. It sold above 50 million units in two years of its launching.
However, Motorola was not able to capitalize on the Razr’s success. As the industry went on to develop more sophisticated smartphones, Motorola fell apart. In 2012, Google had purchased Motorola and then, resold it to Lenovo after two years. Now, Lenovo has a great chance to strengthen Motorola brand now with the help of Razr. This summer, Motorola will launch its first flip smartphone. For this, Motorola is exploring different takes on the flip or foldable screens. The intent of this phone is also to minimize the scratching defects on the screen.
