Remember the Motorola RAZR series? Well, the iconic foldable design could be back soon as the Lenovo-owned brand; which is reportedly working on the Motorola RAZR foldable smartphone. This will come with a foldable display instead of dual displays.
More details regarding the Motorola RAZR Patent –
A recent registration with the (WIPO) World Intellectual Property Organisation may have just given us our first look at Lenovo’s Motorola RAZR; which is basically a remake with a folding display. The design, which was filed on December 17th 2018 and first spotted by 91Mobiles, appears to show a device with a folding screen on the inside, alongside a second smaller screen on the outside.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Motorola is intending to re-launch the RAZR; as a $1,500 foldable screen smartphone next month.
As per the report, the Motorola RAZR foldable smartphone is still under development; therefore the release date of the new model of Motorola RAZR can be subjected to change. It looks like the foldable smartphone is going to be the next big thing of 2019; as not only Lenovo-owned Motorola is designing a foldable smartphone; but other smartphone makers like Samsung, Huawei and LG are also reportedly working on to launch such models.
Although the RAZR name does not appear anywhere on Motorola Mobility’s registration, the design bears an uncanny resemblance to the iconic handset; right down to the thick chin on the bottom of the device.

The Changes –
The big change is that on the inside of the phone the old combination of screen and buttons have been replaced with a single long, folding screen; which matches the WSJ’s one detail about the appearance of the upcoming remake.
While another leak of USPO filling shows that Motorola applied for the patent on August 21, 2018. The patent named ‘Electronic Device With Hinge and Corresponding Systems and Methods’ was granted a patent in August itself. The images in the USPO filling displays the hinge that coupled a camera; which is stated to be shaped like the head of a cat.
”I think people are kind of yearning for and remembering back to that RAZR; when it flipped open, and the sound of that, the feel of that. Where is that today? And it seems like an opportunity,” Pierce recently explained, “So we’re trying to understand what we can do to revive some of that; but it’s got to be done in a way that fundamentally delivers on incredible experience.”
Well, we cannot say as to how the design of the upcoming Moto RAZR will finally look like; but it seems that the company is on its last leg of producing the revamped version of the iconic Motorola RAZR.
