Motorola Razr refundable and will cost from $1500
Take a deep breath. Ready? It will cost from 1,500 dollars for the version with the small amount of memory and without the use of expensive materials in the hull.
Lenovo, the current owner of Motorola Mobility, will release a new version of the iconic Razr cell phone. It is a success for the brand, which was already in the hands of others, after Google and other owners who are unable to take the company to a new level. For a long time, the brand and its shareholders had to challenge the seizure of property, the struggle over patents and technology. And soon it may produce a result.
Like the same gadget, announced at the Samsung developer conference in 2018, the new Razr will get a folding screen. The patent, filed in may 2017, open the casing flip with a curved screen that folds inwards.
As a Samsung phone, it is expected that this unit will appreciate at least $ 1,500. Produced will be a limited quantity — 2,000 units.
The new Razr is only the latest in a series of very expensive and specific phones designed for consumers who are not going to be updated frequently, reflecting the current reality of the smartphone business.
Presents in July 2004, the Razr V3 was one of the first phones that has entered the mainstream and became part of pop culture like modern iPhone. Its slender form factor attracted attention, and the marketing associated with fashion, brought the phone to success. It was sold more than 3 million V3 at initial startup. Version Razr V3i was one of the first phones with built-in iTunes from Apple.
The brand was revived several times, but his success was mixed. In 2007 was released the Motorola Razr2, he did not achieve the same success. In 2011 was released an Android smartphone called the Motorola Droid Razr. On the market all went well, but it barely resembled the original clamshell Razr.
After the iPhone supplanted Motorola in the cell phone market, about which much was written Smartphone.ua the company was eventually acquired by Google, and then Lenovo. This time Lenovo will cooperate with Verizon to release a new version of the Razr this year — perhaps in February.
