7. Motorola Razr: In February, the Wall Street Journal said that Motorola may come back with its Razr model but as a foldable phone. Given that Motorola didn't make a peep about the device during Mobile World Congress, and subsequently squashed all Razr-related rumors around the time of the budget G7 series' launch, we're not quite as certain when we'll actually see the device in the flesh — though the phone's appearance in a Bluetooth certification document in April hints that it may be happening after all, Tom’s Guide said. If and when launched, the smartphone is rumoured to be priced at $1,500 and might have a limited run exclusively on Verizon. (Image: Yanko Design)
