The iconic Motorola RAZR is poised to make a big comeback as a $1,500 foldable screen smartphone, and according to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it could launch as soon as February. This comes after the tech giant dropped a nostalgic teaser video of the device back in 2016 celebrating its 12th anniversary, hinting of the flip phone’s return, however, it was actually used to promote another flagship device instead.

Prior to the iPhone and other smartphones, the Motorola RAZR was the phone to buy among flip phones thanks to its super-thin and stylish aesthetic which eventually led Motorola to sell more than 130 million units of the device.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Lenovo, which is now the parent company of Motorola, plans to bring back the RAZR exclusive to Verizon in the US, however, details of the phone, such as its screen size, support for 5G and other features have not been finalized.

While the use of a foldable screen would be nostalgic, the purported price point of $1,500 may prove to be too steep for a large amount of buyers. Head on over to The Wall Street Journal for more.

Up next, Apple is now selling $129 battery cases for the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR.
