With rumours circulating that flip phones will soon be around again, here is a good time to celebrate #flashbackfriday and look back at the best flip phones of the past.
Way back in the nineties, every businessman is seen with a flip phone dangling around their belts with stylish designs of their holsters. And who would ever thought that it will be back again in line with Samsung confirming the arrival of their Hennessey flip phone.
To celebrate its return, here is a look back at the top flip phones not just of yesteryears but also of the modern now:
