Motorola Razr, the foldable flagship phone that went official in India last month was meant to go on sale in the country on April 2. But, Motorola has now officially announced that the sales for its first foldable phone have been delayed to April 15 due to the ongoing lockdown in the country.
The Indian government announced a 21-day lockdown period due to COVID-19 for its residents under which no one is allowed to go out of their homes till April 14. Obviously, the orders are meant for every industry working or dealing in India. This made an impact on Motorola Razr as well and thus the availability has now moved to April 15.
Pre-bookings of Motorola Razr started on the same day of its launch in India, i.e. on March 16. Motorola also bundled a few launch offers with its first foldable phone. The price of the Razr in India is set at Rs. 1,24,999 for the sole, 6GB RAM with a 128GB storage variant. The phone went official globally in November last year and went on sale in the US earlier this year.
The USP of this foldable phone is that it retains the design of the iconic Razr phone that was launched years ago by Motorola. It has the same flip phone design with a flexible display that flips as well. It features a 6.3-inch flexible OLED HD Plus display and a secondary 2.7innch Quick View display stays on the top cover that allows you to view notifications. It is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor coupled with 6GB RAM and runs Android 9.
The Motorola Razr bears a single primary camera setup that packs a 16MP sensor along with an f/1.7 lens. However, there is one more secondary 5MP camera on the outer display that lets you take selfies without opening the flip phone.
