After HMD Global resurrecting the Nokia 3310 feature phone, it looks like Motorola is in the mood to do something very similar. Motorola’s Malaysian division has posted a new teaser image on its Facebook page, which claims the iconic Motorola RAZR will return as a Moto Mod. The accompanying text reads, “Bringing back the iconic Moto that changed the 2000’s. This time, it’s new and improved, as a Moto Mod”.
The Motorola RAZR line debuted in the year 2004 and achieved tremendous popularity thanks to its striking design. Motorola managed to sell more than 130 million units of the RAZR V3, making it the most popular clamshell ever. While Motorola stopped selling RAZR series phones in 2007, it tried to cash in on the brand by launching a new line of DROID RAZR Android-powered smartphones.
Motorola has come up with a number of exciting Moto Mod add-ons in the past year, so it does sound plausible that they could launch a RAZR-branded Moto Mod that could add some sort of “flip-phone” functionality to the Moto Z series smartphones. A senior Lenovo executive had revealed last month that Motorola will be releasing no less than 12 new Moto Mods this year, so we can definitely imagine the RAZR Moto Mod being one of them. We just hope that this “RAZR Mod” doesn’t turn out to be an April Fools prank tomorrow.
