Motorola Razr Confirmed To Launch In India On 16th March

Motorola has just sent out invites to the launch event of the Motorola Razr in India, confirming the device to make its debut on 16 March.

Lenovo-owned Motorola has just sent out invitations for the upcoming launch of the foldable Motorola Razr in India. The device, which features the clamshell design, will be released in the Indian market on 16th March, according to the invite sent by the brand. So far, the price of the upcoming smartphone hasn’t been revealed, but it should not be too far off its global price.

Motorola Razr: Price in India & Availability

The Motorola Razr price is $1,500 (around Rs. 1,08,000) for the global market, which is slightly more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip ($1,380 ~ Rs. 1,01,000). The latter has already arrived in India with a price of Rs. 1,09,900, so Motorola might set the price of its foldable phone around the mark to compete with its Samsung counterpart.

Motorola Razr: Specifications & Features

The Motorola Razr is also a foldable smartphone, but it is different from Samsung's Galaxy Fold or Huawei's Mate X. Instead of turning a smartphone into a tablet with a larger screen, Motorola turns a smartphone into something smaller and easy to carry around

This is not the first time Motorola revived the Razr brand, as it had already introduced the Droid RAZR smartphone. However, it did not recall Motorola's iconic brand and was quite disappointing. The device is not only a familiar name but also inherited a lot of inspiration from the 2004 flip phone.

A special feature of this smartphone is the folding screen. The main screen is a 6.2-inch OLED panel that folds vertically. When opened, it's no bigger than any Android smartphone. Therefore, the experience will not be too different when you shift from a regular Android smartphone. Above the screen, there is a wide notch to house a selfie camera and a speaker.

There is also a 2.7-inch OLED screen on the outside, which Motorola calls Quick View. This secondary screen can display notifications, music control and can be used to take selfies using the rear camera.

Its screen is made from a single panel, protected by a special coating developed by Motorola itself to resist scratches and has a nano-coating inside for splash resistance. The edges of the screen are completely surrounded by a stainless steel frame, which can prevent any objects from getting into the hinge.

The impressive thing is that when opened, the screen becomes completely flat, without any folds or any sense that this is a folding screen.

The smartphone is equipped with a Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage. For photography, the brand uses a 16MP main camera on the rear and 5MP selfie camera upfront. Motorola doesn’t use the Snapdragon 855 SoC on this expensive smartphone because it wants to help optimize battery life and heat since the device is only packed with a modest 2,510mAh battery. The battery still supports 15W fast charging solution via a USB-C port. For security, it has a fingerprint reader mounted on the front.

A significant disadvantage of this phone is its single 16MP rear camera. That will really put the handset far behind other flagships in terms of camera quality. However, Motorola acknowledges that it is impossible to use a larger camera module or more sensors while retaining the foldable design of this smartphone.

Motorola Razr price: around Rs. 1,08,000
