Fifteen years after the original Motorola RAZR was launched, Motorola is rumored to be reviving its iconic brand through the release of a new foldable smartphone.

Several rumors are suggesting Motorola is considering releasing a foldable device soon, including a hint from the company's VP of Global Product, Dan Dery.

It is not yet known when Motorola plans to unveil its foldable device. It says the Verizon-branded phone is now codenamed "Voyager" internally, and will echo the Galaxy Fold in having a secondary display on the outside for when the main screen is folded up.

Motorola will restrict specific applications from accessing the secondary display. More specifically, it seems that the initial range will include a handful of pre-installed apps such as Moto Display, Moto Actions, and Moto Camera. The external display also shows the clock, pulsing notifications and has media controls. In addition to this, information such as the time and weather could be available to users at all time too. However, they did indicate that the strategy might be different from the "unfold a phone into a tablet" concept that Samsung and Huawei are following. A simple tap on the display will take a photo as you will be facing the only camera - on the outside of the clamshell - towards you. It is hardly surprising that Motorola is jumping on the foldable, dual-screen phone bandwagon. Apparently, these will comprise options like NFC, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

If the user triggers Google Assistant while the phone is flip closed, then the Assistant animation can be shown if the user chooses to enable it.

Another neat feature comes when the smartphone is opened.

Meanwhile, the external display will work as a trackpad for scrolling apps and lists on the primary display when that's unfolded. Essentially, the panel will act as a trackpad. Due to its unique design and high price (around $1,500), though, a production run of just 200,000 units is now rumored.

Taking the steep price tag into consideration, it looks like Motorola will also be offering more premium configurations in the near future.
