SCHAUMBURG, Illinois – Motorola released a video which gadget enthusiasts believe is a hint of Razr phone’s comeback.

Before iPhone and Samsung ruled on phone markets, many had their eyes for a skinny flip phone Motorola Razr.

James Titcomb mentioned in his article for The Telegraph that the flip phone was a fashion icon during its release in 2004; a revolutionary design compared to the thick Nokia mobiles that ruled the cellphone market that time.

Now, the iconic phone might have its comeback as seen in a video uploaded by Motorola Mobility on YouTube. The video shows a group of students [probably around 2007 judging from the video’s soundtrack] using their Razr phones at an American high school.

The video was titled “06.09.16” to apparently highlight a Motorola event which is due to be held on June 9.

The video was captioned “Flip back to the Razr days of yesteryear and get ready for the future”, and ends with the letters “TTYL” (talk to you later).

An article by Mark Prigg for Mail Online said that Motorola is expected to release a successor to its flagship smartphone, the Moto X, in June, which might be the reason for reviving the flip phones.

Gadget enthusiasts can’t help but hope that the video showing the Razr brand might offer something new, or a deviation from the rectangular touchscreen design of every popular smartphone.

The Razr became the world’s bestselling flip phone and one of the 10 most popular of all time. Despite the phone’s not so powerful specifications – a 2.2-inch screen, and 0.3 megapixels,  it is still one of the most loved phones by gadget enthusiasts.
