Behold the foldable Motorola Razr in a soon-to-be-released gold hue
Whether you find the $1500 price point of the reimagined Motorola Razr to be fair or somewhat exaggerated (or even outright absurd), it's hard not to love the nostalgia-inducing yet futuristic design of the world's first vertically folding smartphone.

But you know what could make the 2019-announced, 2020-released Razr even cooler? Yes, a more silent hinge, a higher-res display, or a faster processor would be nice, but instead of dreaming about internal upgrades and build refinements unlikely to come to pass before Motorola rolls out a second-gen foldable device... someday, we'd rather focus on a small yet notable cosmetic change that's probably right around the corner.

Enter a quartet of sharp product renders leaked earlier today by none other than Evan Blass of @evleaks Twitter fame. These previously unseen images show off the revived Verizon-exclusive Motorola Razr in a snazzy black-and-gold chromatic combination from every angle.

The versatile flip phone is not entirely coated in gold, which looks like a smart and relatively tasteful choice at first glance, nonetheless standing out in a big way from the somewhat boring "Noir Black" flavor that's still exclusively up for pre-order at Motorola, Verizon, and Walmart.

Unfortunately, there's no word just yet on a prospective release date of this arguably prettier Razr model revealed in all its golden glory. Don't let the April 3 lock screen date fool you into jumping to conclusions either, as the official press images of the all-black variant are identical and we know (most) deliveries will kick off as early as tomorrow. That is, if you've already placed your pre-order, because Big Red's website suggests those who've waited until now to do that will need to continue playing the waiting game for another month or so.

Let's just hope Motorola isn't thinking of further jacking up the price for this gold Razr flavor given how hard it already is to recommend choosing the company's rookie foldable effort over Samsung's fast-approaching and much more impressive Galaxy Z Flip.
