If there is any foldable phone that stands true to its origin, assuming it has any, that would be Moto’s Razr. When first announced, fans were sounding their enthusiasm over getting their hands on the classic flip phone but with the modern techs, we use in smartphones these days.
Initially scheduled for pre-orders to start on Christmas Day, Motorola is pushing back their schedule to time indefinite. Motorola’s rep addressed this issue in the statement below:
“Since its announcement in November, the new Motorola Razr has received unparalleled excitement and interest from consumers. Demand has been high, and as a result, has quickly outgrown supply predictions. Motorola has decided to adjust Razr’s presale and launch timing to better meet consumer demand.
We are working to determine the appropriate quantity and schedule to ensure that more consumers have access to Razr at launch. We do not anticipate a significant shift from our original availability timeline.”
While most under brands had their launch and sales date continuously delayed to fix any bugs and flaws in the foldable phone, Motorola’s issue seems to be on meeting customers’ demand.
Priced at $1500, the new Razr features a pOLED display and is powered with a mid-range Snapdragon 710. Its battery holds on 2,500 mAh, making this the most affordable foldable phone with mid-range specs to date.
