Motorola RAZR is making a comeback, cue the nostalgia
Besides making us laugh, those "ten year challenge" memes are really filling our hearts with nostalgia. Seems it's been so long since our Myspace days, mirror selfies (with flash) and taking hours to text on flip phones. Remember that?
Although we can't promise anything about the first two items, we have some news for the ones who miss the best phone ever created: the Motorola RAZR. Yes, it's coming back—but it might not look exactly like you remember it.
Once upon a time, about 10 years ago or so, the Motorola RAZR was the phone everyone wanted to have. Although flip phones have been long gone, the model is still incredibly popular.
So, of course, it's making a come back. Reportedly.
We know what you're thinking: We've been through this before. In 2016, Motorola even released a commercial teasing the potential return of their beloved phone. The ad, which you can watch below, even featured Boys Like Girls’ “The Great Escape,” which was turning ten that year.
However, things really seem to be happening this time, according to a report from the The Wall Street Journal.
The RAZR is reportedly making a comeback as a smartphone—with a foldable screen and all, so it kind of, sort of looks like its original version. Motorola's parent company, Lenovo, is the one working on the new model.
According to The Verge, the new phone is still being tested but the plans are to release it in February. Verizon exclusively sell in the U.S. for a starting price of around $1,500.
The report also explains Motorola and Lenovo are planning to release 200,000 of the new phone, which doesn't seem a lot when compared to the 130 million RAZR V3 units sold back in the day, as The Verge notes.
If you're looking for more information about the model, such as screen size, features and so on, it appears like you'll have to wait a little bit longer. Perhaps even until the launch, because the manufacturers are keeping quiet about the details.
