This is likely our best look yet at Motorola's revamped Razr flip phone with a foldable display
- Design patents filed by Motorola in December 2018 were discovered after a Wall Street Journal report said that a new Razr flip-phone-style device with a foldable display is on its way from Lenovo, Motorola's parent company.
- The design patents don't definitively reveal what the new device will look like, but they give us a general idea as to what it could look like.
- The design patents show a device that's nearly identical to the original Razr V3 flip phone.
Last Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Lenovo and Motorola will soon release a revival of its famed Razr V3 flip phone with a brand-new foldable display design, and it could cost $1,500.
I should stress that patents don't typically reveal exactly what to expect in a new upcoming device. Rather, patents only show what kinds of ideas a company has - and that idea ever seeing the light of day isn't guaranteed. Either way, based on the design patent images below, it seems that Motorola's idea is to make a modern rendition of its Razr flip phone that looks nearly identical to the original.
