Motorola’s much-anticipated collapsible Razr has finally had a new release date after it was delayed last month: February 6, which costs $1,499, and will be available on January 26,media reported. The new booking date comes just a month after the planned December 26th, and Motorola changed its plan because demand for the collapsible device was higher than expected.
Reservations will only be available on Verizon, Wal-Mart and Motorola websites. The phone will also go on sale in stores starting February 6. However, it is unclear whether it will be easy or difficult to buy a phone on the release date, and the delay in demand could mean a reduction in the number of available supplies.
Revival Razr, released last year, became Motorola’s first collapsible smartphone. The phone was inspired by Motorola’s RAZR flip phone, but it has a 6.2-inch screen size, is flexible and modern Android. But on such a high-end device, the underperforming camera, the mid-range SnapDragon710, is a flaw. As previously announced, Razr will only be sold on Verizon in the United States.
The release time is crucial for Motorola, which is rumoured to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip flip-top foldable phone in February. If the rumors are true, Samsung’s next collapsible phone will be released on February 11th — just days after Razr’s launch.
