Remember when RAZR flip phones were the cool new craze? Maybe you do, but your children probably won't.
SALT LAKE CITY – Motorola Razr is coming back.
Motorola Razr which gained monumental popularity back in the early 2000s as one of the first leading super thin phones, is coming back soon in the form of a smartphone, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Lenovo who owns the Motorola brand after a 2014 purchase from Google, will bring the phone back with a foldable screen, WSJ reports.
- It is unclear yet if the phone supports 5G or what the screen size will be according to USA Today.
- Lenovo reportedly works with Verizon to release the device, WSJ reports.
Price: The phone will probably cost close to $ 1,500. There are reportedly only 200,000 units made.
Remember: Motorola Razr was the leading phone back in the day. In fact, the unit sold more than 130 million units in four years, Bloomberg reports.
Flashback: Motorola tried to bring the phone back in 2011 and 2012, according to The Verge. Motorola worked with the Verizon for the Droid RAZRs, which was really nothing like the original.
Two things: Building old phones in new forms is a recent trend, according to The Verge. Nokia has tried to do so with two new devices.
