The Motorola Razr was pretty much my childhood dream smartphone. It looked absolutely magnificent with its gloriously thin profile and slick shiny keyboard. Unfortunately, the smartphone has made it so that there is no place in this world for a Motorola Razr anymore…
Or is there?
Motorola recently dropped a bomb of a teaser video which features a trifecta of nostalgic music (Boys Like Girls in their heyday), high school and of course the iconic Motorola Razr. Check it out!
Ending on a simple TTYL just sells it for me. The question now is, what does this mean?
Sure, Motorola has had some success with their Moto X smartphones but they never really had the impact a Razr did. The trailer seems to suggest that the Lenovo-owned brand is trying to revive their legendary Motorola Razr in some form.
Perhaps it could be a smartphone in a flip phone’s body (sort of like the Samsung Galaxy Golden) or a new line of smartphones under the Razr branding. One big hint is the way the video’s end title appeared on the screen. Will we see a return of the T9 Numpad to Motorola’s next smartphone?
At this point, all of this is just speculation. The good news is that we have a date, 9th June 2016. That’s about two weeks from now, so I guess we’ll find out then. I don’t know about you, but I’m super hyped for this.
