The Motorola razr flip phone is making its return. Motorola has announced that they will be releasing a reimagined version of the product.

Per People, the new razr  “still features a flip-open design, only this go-round, the phone can be used as one cohesive screen once it’s opened thanks to a zero-gap hinge.” This will allow users to use the phone two different screens: “The 2.7-inch quick view, on which you can make calls, reply to messages, pay for things, take selfies and play music, or the flipped-open 6.2-inch screen, on which you can do all of the above and more just like any other smartphone.”

Motorola released a statement on why they decided to bring the phone back. They explain, “We saw trends that pointed to nostalgia of products from the early 2000s, in addition to receiving requests of our own to bring back razr. These things … made reimagining razr a no brainer.”

Of course, Twitter is having a field day over this announcement. Read some of the best tweets below.
