Lenovo CEO hints at a possible comeback for the Moto Razr

It seems like retro smartphones are a thing now. Following the launch of the Nokia 3310 last year and the Nokia 8110 4G, it seems like Moto might soon join the fray with its iconic Moto Razr. During an interaction with the media at MWC 2018, TechRadar reports that Lenovo CEO, Yang Yuanqing talked about bringing back the phone. “With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design. So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon,” Yuanqing said when asked about a possible return for the Razr design.

Judging by what he said, it seems like the company might be working on more than just an updated design. While the two retro Nokia phones might come with more features than their predecessor, they are still feature phones in essence. The new Moto Razr could be a whole new device with a foldable display that might be given the same branding. This also suggests that the company might be working on foldable display technology, just like Samsung. To recall, Samsung is expected to launch it much-rumoured foldable smartphone this year under the Galaxy X moniker.

Back in 2016, Lenovo had posted an advertisement for its upcoming Lenovo Tech World conference. While the advertisement didn’t reveal much about what was going to be unveiled, it was chock-full of the iconic Moto Razr. During that event, the company unveiled the Moto Z-series of smartphones as well as the Moto Mods. The company also showcased the Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone that came with Google’s now defunct Project Tango AR platform.
