The RAZR is back!

Last week it was a leaked rumor. This week it's been confirmed. Motorola is bringing back the legendary RAZR flip-phone. Introduced in 2004, the RAZR was such a item that Motorola sold more than one hundred thirty million units in 4 years making it the best- clamshell phone in the world.
Eventually sales slumped as touchscreen phones became popular and Samsung took the market lead. In 20 Motorola resurrected the RAZR 20.
On November , 2019 Motorola released details that an Android based RAZR will be released for 2020 exclusively through Verizon Wireless at a price of $1,500.

I don't have a crystal ball, but I'll make a prediction that the initial review will be slower than expected. Those have service with other providers won't be willing jump ship and there will be a market for cracked/unlocked phones, but I suspect at $1,500 you can a flagship Samsung S10+ and have enough left over for 65" Samsung 4K UHD TV.

Motorola may have priced themselves out of the market.

Yes, very popular worldwide. The only drawback was humidity destroyed them. Typically Motorola products meet military specification for ruggedness. My nephew had one and left it on the vanity while showering. The phone stopped working and he took it for repair. According the the technician, there were humidity indicators inside the case showing the trouble was related to moisture.
