Nostalgia is fashionable, which is why we should not be surprised if one of the best-known and most successful mobile phones (or cell phones) of the past decade is going to revive from the dead. The Motorola Razr will return, but it will not be anything cheap. Its price will be around 1,500 dollars.

Lenovo, the company that owns Motorola, is working in conjunction with phone operator Verizon to bring Razr back in full glory, according to the Wall Street Journal. No details are yet known about their technical specifications or their possibilities, but the retro phone would arrive sooner than we imagined. In fact, it is expected to go on sale by surprise next February, although for now only in the United States.

The Razr was one of the most successful, well-known and popular phones of the mid-2000s. Having it granted, in a way, a status. It even gave some pleasure to open the top of the phone to answer a call. It was an emblematic phone, so it is not strange that it returns in this era in which everything retro is a trend.

What is not clear is what this version of Razr will bring again. How will your screen be? Will it replace the physical keyboard with another screen, or will it choose to include a full one with QWERTY keys in the style of the BlackBerry? If the rumors are true, there is very little to know. The original Razr went on sale in 2004.
