Looks like Lenovo wants to Motorola once and for all. The world is in a recession and Lenovo wants to sell US$1500 phones ??? People don’t have ready money. So-called high flying executives drink tea at open air tea stalls & can’t afford a three figured snack. Get real!!

People are ready to pay for a lot of things, especially those in the US. This phone is good for the ultra rich peeps who are actually gonna be few in number. I’d like to see how this foldable screen phones turn out. The tech will become cheaper by 2025. 5G too.


Price is too high… $1500 Unbelievable. The price is not affordable for most of the Indians.
