Rumor has it that Lenovo’s Motorola is planning to revive its legendary Razr smartphone, and that it may come in February.
And now, thanks to a filing in the World Intellectual Property Organization’s database, we know what it might look like.
The filing, unearthed by 91mobiles (via The Verge), details a device that looks very similar to the original Razr, with one key difference: Inside, instead of a physical keyboard/screen split, it just has one big screen that folds when you close the phone. There’s also an additional screen on the outside.
The new Razr is rumored to come with a hefty price tag of $1,500. Then again, the upcoming foldable phones from companies like Samsung aren’t likely to be very cheap, either. There’s no word on other specs, and Motorola would not confirm (or deny) the rumors when we asked them.
Filings like these don’t always turn into actual products, but if anyone’s well-positioned to take advantage of the new, foldable screens trend, it’s Motorola.
The original Razr, which launched in 2004, was at one point the phone to have — thin, good-looking and practical. Its rule faded with the advent of smartphones, and though Motorola attempted several reboots, it never repeated the success of the original Razr.
