An unannounced gold version of the Motorola’s new nostalgia-driven foldable Moto Razr has now leaked courtesy of prolific leakster Evan Blass.

Blass shared the high-resolution images of the folding smartphone over on his now-private Twitter account, which hints at a potential wider release of the device. At the moment, the Moto Razr is only available in black directly from Verizon, with a price-tag of $1,499.

However, during the original launch, Motorola made no mention of a gold Moto Razr. The unannounced new color definitely brings back memories of the Dolce & Gabbana collaboration on the original RAZR flip phone — albeit exponentially more muted in its decadence.

[Update 04/08]: After leaking nearly two months ago, the “blush gold” Moto Razr is now officially on sale — complete with longevity question marks. You can pick it up directly from Motorola US for a whopping $1,499 only on Verizon. However, you’re probably better off picking up the vastly superior Galaxy Z Flip.

It’s worth noting that Blass shared the press renders with no further details on a release or anything else for that matter. So we can only assume that this gold version comes with the same specifications which include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and paltry 2,510mAh battery. It sure looks like it is the same smartphone from the outside, with that flexible 6.2-inch folding plastic OLED panel.

Given that there are some durability question marks about the device that ships on March 3rd already, even a new gold colorway might not be enough to entice you to part with $1,500. With Samsung set to launch the far more high-end Galaxy Z Flip in the coming weeks, it’s going to be interesting to see which device ends up being the better option for flip phone fans.
