Motorola’s revived Razr phone was supposed to be available for pre-order back in December, but the company chose to push it back due to significant consumer demand. Now has a release date: it’ll be out on February 6th for $1,499, with preorders starting on January 26th.
The new preorder date is exactly a month after the originally planned December 26th date, which Motorola changed due to demand for the foldable device being higher than it had anticipated.
Preorders will be available exclusively at Verizon, Walmart, and on Motorola’s website. The phone will also be available in stores starting on February 6th. However, it’s not clear how easy or difficult it’ll be to just walk in and buy one on the release date; the delay due to demand could suggest that there will be fewer units available.
Motorola’s new Razr phone has a foldable display, which allows it to be a modern smartphone with a full-sized screen while staying true to the Razr’s flip form factor. It doesn’t have the latest and greatest flagship components Motorola admits it’s a “design-first” device and will set you back $1,500. The phone definitely has a unique look you can’t get elsewhere, though. For now, that is. Samsung is rumored to be working on a clamshell-type foldable phone of its own.
