It was the must-have smartphone of the early 2000s and now the Motorola RAZR will return with a modern twist.

On November 13, the company will unveil a reinvented version of its iconic folding phone and claim it is "an original different from all others."

Motorola initially planned to release the next generation Razr in the summer, but the date has since passed and moved to next month, CNET reported.

Users can expect the device to run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, with a battery of 2,730 mAh, 4 GB or 6 GB RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB storage.

And it will be available in three colors – white, black and gold.

Motorola has applied for a patent earlier this year and is showing off a folding device that looks like the iconic flip phone, apart from a folding screen on the inside and another medium-sized display on the outside of the device.

Sketches of the device show that it would retain some of the well-known elements of the Razr from the 2000s era, such as the large chin on the bottom of the phone, as well as the hinge through which it can open and close.

That device is probably not the first foldable phone from Motorola, although the design is quite complicated, he added.

With a price tag of $ 1500 it would cost more than double the original $ 600 Razr.

It would not be the first time that Motorola has tried to revive the Razr name.

In 2011, the company partnered with Verizon to launch the Droid Razr, a smartphone that did not replicate the original flip phone design, but instead had a 4.3-inch display and claimed the & # 39; the world's thinnest smartphone & # 39; to be with a thickness of 7.1 mm.

THE ARRIVAL OF THE RAZR

2004: Motorola releases the Razr V3, the first phone in the Razr line. Thanks to the ultra-thin design, the device could be sold as an ultra high-end phone.

2005: Motorola lowers the price of the V3, causing it to sell 50 million units by 2006.

2007: Motorola releases the successor to the V3, the Razr2. It had a thinner 2 mm case and a micro USB charger that could also be used to connect a headset.

2008: Sales of the Razr2 began to falter as consumers switched to newer, more flashy models such as the Apple iPhone, which was released a year earlier.

His successor, the Razr3, was eventually stopped with a falling sale.

2011: Motorola is working with Verizon to release the Droid Razr, a smartphone that is suitable for 4G LTE and according to him the & # 39; thinnest smartphone ever & # 39; used to be.

2019: Speculation is starting to build that the company is planning to launch a foldable Razr successor, including patents suggesting that a device could come this year.
