Yes, the super thin, iconic flip phone from the early 2000s is officially making a return and entering the very crowded field of smartphones.
Motorola has announced it is bringing back the iconic flip phone from the 2000s, but as a folding smartphone. The new Razr will fold up vertically rather than horizontally, like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It’s a 6.2-inch 21:9 plastic OLED panel that folds in half along the horizontal axis. Unfolded, it’s not dramatically bigger than any other modern phone, and the extra height is something that the Android interface and apps adapt to far better than a tablet-size screen. The Razr will run Android and the old T9 keyboard is replaced with a touchscreen. It hits shelves in January, exclusive to Verizon, with a price tag of $1500. Pre-orders open in December!
