This time, another iconic phone will return and it is the Motorola Razr. 

Many news outlets confirmed recently that the Motorola's iconic phone Motorola Razr will return as a smartphone. This week, an illustration of the alleged Motorola RAZR appears online that made tech geeks get more excited. 

A tech news outlet 91 Mobiles reveals several illustrations that seem to show a handset with a folding screen on the inside. The second illustration shows a smaller screen on the outside. Although the illustration may look like Motorola RAZR, the source did not mention RAZR brand in the document. However, the illustrations that have been posted shows several similarities to the RAZR V3.
