Let me preface this by saying that, to my preteen dismay, I never had a RAZR to call my own. An LG enV, sure. But the hot pink Motorola RAZR, in its revolutionary sleek flip form, evaded me. So when I heard it was coming back next month, 15 years after its initial launch, my younger self just about lost it. And it's more than coming back. It's getting the smart treatment (and losing its all-caps name).
The new razr is a smart phone that folds in half. There are two displays — Quick View when the phone is folded, which you can use to make calls, view notifications, make mobile payments, and even take selfies and video calls with an external camera, and the larger Flex View when the screen is opened up, which has a camera as well.
In addition to normal selfie fare, the phone has some other fun camera features built in, such as Gesture Selfie, which captures photos when you raise an open palm in front of the camera, Auto Smile Capture, Night Vision, and Portrait mode.
In terms of pricing and availability, the brand new phone will be available to pre order in the UK starting in December, with no word yet on how much the handset will cost. Soon we can all channel that iconic photo of Paris Hilton holding up a hot pink RAZR on a red carpet.
