Man, you remember Motorola Razr? Thing was hot back in the day – all the cool kids had them. Well, good news: It can come back as a modern smartphone. Again.
According to a recent report by The Wall Street Journal, Lenovo (who bought Motorola from Google back in 2014) plans to work with Verizon to relinquish a phone with the beloved Razr names. The downside? It will be a $ 1500 foldable. Fifteen. Hundred. Dollar. Oof.
This is of course not the first time the Razr brand has seen a restart. If you were Android users back on the day when the brand Droid was Verin's hotness, you might remember the Droid Razr. It was a svelte (for the time) handset that did its best to be true to the Razr brand. It was a cool phone then.
But still, a story lesson is enough – let's talk about this wild thing that Lenovo and Verizon have been cooking. Apparently, it can be released as early as February (like next month), but it looks like they will only make about 200,000 units to start. Sensible, because not many people will bail out $ 1500 for a smartphone in the first place, much less one that just builds on nostalgia.
Otherwise, the remaining details, such as the hardware, are sharp. So now we know that it becomes expensive, foldable and niche as hell. I can't wait to see it.
