Motorola jumps into the foldable phones market. And it’s probably with one of the most iconic names in the business. Motorola, a Chinese consumer electronics giant Lenovo, plans to sell its foldable smartphone in the summer, according to a person familiar with the company’s plans. The person said the design would be different from the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which debuted last week, or the Huawei Mate X, which was shown at the MWC Barcelona show on Sunday.
The device is almost certainly a revival of the Razr brand, reported by The Wall Street Journal with a $1,500 price tag. Wednesday’s Engadget confirmed the phone’s coming. The summer launch squarely places it between the launch of the Galaxy Fold, scheduled for 26 April, and the Mate X, which will be launched around mid-year, and further highlights the growing trend of foldable phones. The devices gained tons of buzz and talked about a revitalized MWC at a time when interest in phones was beginning to ripen.
As for now, we just have to wait for the reply from Motorola soon. Comment down below on your interest on the foldable smartphone. Do you think, this could be the game changer for mobile phone industries?
