One of the most loved cellphone in the history the Motorola Razr is coming back as an high end device. The device will be an foldable one and expected to be priced at $1500. The return of the phone isn’t confirmed yet, it’s still just a rumour.

Things have changed over time, and Motorola is now owned by Lenovo. The company is bringing back the nostalgic device in an high end segment. For most of the users that was the first “cool” cellphone that they have used.

The less interesting part of high end devices, the pricing, as said earlier the phone is supposed to be priced at $1500.

As mentioned above, the phone is supposed to be launched somewhere in February, so we don’t have to wait more for the specifications of the device. Adding to this, Wall Street Journal reported that the company would manufacture 200,000 units, so there wouldn’t be a massive availability for the device. Summing it up we can understand that the device is going to be a Limited edition one, and will be a pretty pricey one.
