The Motorola Razr flip phone reminds us of simpler times when gossip ruled the high school hallways; when jocks, rockers and brooding emo kids vied for the attentions of the prom queens who only had time for their elegant fashion statement of a phone.
Of course, none of that happened to us, but it appears the Lenovo-owned Motorola (or is it just Moto these days?) is preparing to resurrect those glory days for those lucky kids who lived that oft-depicted slice of high school Americana.
Effectively, that’s a long winded and frivolous way (forgive us, it’s Friday afternoon) of saying Moto has teased a new version of the Razr may be launched on June 9.
The video posted to YouTube on Friday offers the description “Flip back to the Razr days of yesteryear and get ready for the future.”
Within the video itself Moto depicts the aforementioned high schoolers (who now probably have about 8 kids each and work jobs they hate) enjoying the previous versions of the flip-phone, which last enjoyed a launch in 2002.
Motorola will be part of Lenovo Tech World on June 9 where it is also set to reveal the new Moto Z smartphones that may even feature modular rear cases.
Would you like to see a resurrection of the Moto Razr running the Android OS? Will it help Moto recapture it’s American glory days, before it was owned by a Chinese computer firm? Was it ever any more than a fashion statement anyway?
