Retro phones may not be the talk of MWC like they were last year (all we have seen is the return of the Nokia 8110) but Motorola’s CEO just hinted to TechRadar that its iconic Razr design will soon make a return.
Lenovo (which now owns the Motorola brand) CEO Yang Yuanqing spoke to a select group of journalists at MWC 2018 and we took the opportunity to ask him about a potential Razr revival.
Last year, he told CNBC that Motorola shouldn’t rule out the phone’s return, but nothing has been mentioned since. But that doesn’t mean the idea of a new Razr has been cut, as Yuanqing explained to us.
“With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design,” he told TechRadar.
“So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon”.
He was referring to our question about a possible return for the well-remembered Razr design.
We followed up to confirm he was talking about the Razr in particular, and Yuanqing replied: “I think I have already answered the question”.
Yuanqing’s comments have got us thinking just how Motorola could return to the Razr name.
