It was reported recently that Motorola could be thinking about reviving its iconic Razr brand. The company isn’t going to launch a slim flip phone, though. The report mentioned that Motorola was creating a foldable smartphone which would be launched under the Razr brand. A patent awarded to Motorola might give us an idea of what this device could look like.
The images from this patent filing which Motorola was reportedly granted offer a glimpse of the expected design of this device. The handset will apparently have a clamshell form factor with a foldable OLED display. The clamshell form factor would be in line with earlier Razr handsets but would serve a completely different purpose for this particular device.
The illustrations in this patent suggest that the overall look of the device may not be that different from the original Razr handset. One can also make out the rounded bottom where the speaker will be placed. Things would be different on the inside where it will have a one-piece foldable OLED display with hinges in the middle of the phone’s body.
It goes without saying that what’s normally seen in patents doesn’t always turns out to be the actual product. So take this as an estimation of what the design could be. Lenovo-owned Motorola has yet to confirm when it’s going to unveil this device. It hasn’t even acknowledged its existence so far.
