Good morning, 

The well-known Motorola RAZR might be returning to the mobile phone market.

The foldable screen smartphone may launch as early as February for $1,500, according to The Wall Street Journal. The original RAZR was an iconic flip-phone that debuted in 2004 and Motorola is working to update the phone so that it has smartphone capabilities. 

The phone will be a Verizon exclusive, according to The Verge. There is still no information on how big the phone will be such as screen specifications. This isn’t the first time that the company has tried to update the iconic RAZR. In 2011 and 2012, Motorola teamed up with Verizon to create and sell Droid RAZR devices.

In the report from WSJ, Motorola’s parent company, Lenovo, hopes to make over 200,000 of the new RAZRs.
