Looks like the flip phone that defined the mid-2000s is COMING BACK!
Sometime in the era between the iconic Nokia brick with interchangeable face-plates and the boxy-chic BlackBerry, the hottest cell around was the Motorola Razr. It was sleek, simple, and had that oddly satisfying flip function. Well, it turns out the Razr might be making an epic comeback! And we’re understandably freaking out.
In their nostalgia-ridden promo video, Boys like Girls’ “The Great Escape” (remember that song?!) plays as a variety of high school students mill through a hallway with their Razrs. You’ll see familiar faces like the jock with his Letterman’s jacket and the emo kid with an asymmetrical haircut, but everyone has one thing in common — T9 texting. The throwback Razrs in the video even have a 160 character limit for texts! We totally forgot that was a thing!
The new Razr phone would be a new and improved version of the older classic, with Metro reporting the possibility of an Android touch screen!
Old fans of the Razr have taken to Twitter to express their excitement:
The promo video ends with a cryptic “TTYL,” along with the date: June 6th, 2016. We’re looking forward to seeing the Razr reboot in real life!
