Revive your favourite childhood memories with analogue cameras, retro console games and more
These days, nostalgia is king.
How else can you explain figments of our youth getting modern-day resurrections every so often?
Apart from cyclical fashion items like bell-bottom jeans and chokers, the tech scene has also welcomed a bunch of old-school gadgets — all revived and with good measure.
From Tamagotchis to Polaroid cameras, it’s clear from these gems that old is gold.
1. Samsung Galaxy Folder 2
Miss having a flip phone that you could slam shut in a fit of anger? Get yourself a Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 ($299). Officially launched in China last September, the remake resembles the Motorola Razr flip phone, which was all the rage in the 2000s.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, this Android beauty comes with an 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear — and for selfies, a 5-megapixel camera in the front. Features include 4G support as well as 16GB worth of internal storage that can be expanded up to 128GB via a single microSD card slot.
Available at Qoo10 and selected mobile retailers.
