Motorola Razr Foldable Phone Delayed Just A Few Days Before Launch

After the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, Motorola's Razr is the next foldable phone to be delayed. What happened?

The Razr foldable phone seems like a perfect reboot device, it captures the spirit and style of the iconic Razr released in the mid-2000s but features clever upgrades of modern technology. However, just a few days before the phone’s scheduled to go live, Motorola announced that its launch is being delayed.

The Razr foldable phone was initially to be available for preorders on December 25 while its official sales would start on January 9. But the launch has now been pushed back to better meet consumer demand and the new launch date remains unknown.

In its statement, according to Gizmodo, the company said:

Though this pushback doesn’t look great with Samsung and Huawei previously delaying their Galaxy Fold and Mate X, it’s likely that Motorola only delayed the phone launch to increase the supply for the phone rather than to solve its flaws.

Besides, with a bunch of tech companies in preparation for their exhibition at CES 2020, it may turn out to be a smart move delaying the launch of the Razr foldable phone to the event.

The new Razr houses a flexible pOLED screen measuring 6.2 inches. It’s also the third foldable smartphone in the world that’s made by a major phone maker. And while $1,500 is a high price for a handset, this is still the least expensive offering among current foldable phones.

This Razr device seems like a decent phone, offering a satisfying primal snap as you close it. The outside display is much larger with a higher definition compared with the original phone, which helps with taking selfies.

Talking about other specs, the handset is powered by the Snapdragon 710 chip along with a 2,519 mAh battery, we don’t know how long it survives in real life yet. Anyway, if you’re up for this nostalgia phone, stay updated for the next official launch date.
