A couple of years ago, Lenovo released a video which seemed to hint that the company could be looking to revive the Motorola Razr, which is probably one of the more iconic feature phones from back in the day. Motorola later denied that they were bringing the phone back, but now it looks like our hopes could have been raised again.

According to the folks at TechRadar who spoke to Lenovo’s CEO Yang Yuanqing, it seems that the CEO dropped some hints that the Razr could indeed be staging a comeback. Yang spoke about how technology these days has allowed companies to be more innovative with their smartphone designs, and as a result it seems that they could be launching a modern take on the Razr.

Yang was quoted as saying, “With the new technology, particularly foldable screens, I think you will see more and more innovation on our smartphone design. So hopefully what you just described [the Motorola Razr brand] will be developed or realized very soon.” When asked to confirm if he was indeed talking about the Razr, he replied by saying, “I think I have already answered the question.”

We’re not sure if Lenovo plans on bringing back the Razr in its feature phone form, but that wouldn’t be such a stretch of the imagination as HMD Global has revived not only the Nokia 3310, but also the Nokia 8110. It is possible that maybe Lenovo could be hoping that with foldable display technology, they could relaunch the Razr brand with a modern twist. Either way we’ll have to wait and see.
