Motorola Razr: delayed launch for the long-awaited foldable smartphone July 15, 2020 – Posted in: Smartphone news
Motorola caused a sensation with its first foldable smartphone, the Razr. A revamped version of the legendary cell phone from the early 2000s. Available for pre-order with an availability date set for January 9, it should finally arrive a little later. The American firm, owned by Lenovo since 2014, announced a delay in launch due to strong demand. At least, that’s what it says in an official press release:
Since its announcement in November, the new Motorola Razr has generated unprecedented enthusiasm and interest from consumers. Demand was high and therefore quickly exceeded expectations. Motorola has decided to adjust the presale and launch schedule for the Razr to better meet consumer demand.
We are working to determine the appropriate quantity and timing to ensure that more consumers have access to the Razr at the time of launch. We do not anticipate any significant change from our original availability calendar.
The Motorola Razr adopts a price positioning (a little) more accessible than other foldable smartphones. Its price is set at 1,500 dollars, but the data sheet is less impressive.
It benefits from a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdron 710 processor supported by 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, as well as a 2,510 mAh battery and a dual 16 + 5 Mpx photo sensor. Its main feature comes from its format, unlike the Galaxy Fold or Mate X, it unfolds vertically.
