Philips has been a household name for many a year, and now they’re making a comeback! Today, they have announced the new Original Radio Mini (ORT2300C), which has its design based on the iconic 1955 Philips Philetta radio.

While the design is inspired by the ancestor, the functionality of this surpasses it by a long stretch. This radio includes DAB+ radio, Bluetooth connectivity, FM, and even an audio-in option.

It also features dual-alarm option,  a large back-lit LCD display, and a large control knob to make it easy to use.

Due to launch in June for £110, and an alternative non-Bluetooth version will be selling for £90.
