After a slight delay last month, Motorola's highly anticipated foldable Razr now has a release date: it will be released on February 6th for $ 1,499 and pre-orders will start on January 26th.
The new pre-order date is exactly one month after the originally planned December 26, which Motorola changed because demand for the foldable device was higher than expected.
Preorders are only available from Verizon, Walmart, and the Motorola website. The phone will also be available in stores from February 6th. However, it is not clear how easy or difficult it will be to buy one on the day of publication. The delay due to demand could indicate that fewer devices will be available.
The risen Razr was announced last year, making it the first foldable smartphone from Motorola. The design is inspired by the original Moto RAZR flip phone, but has a flexible 6.2-inch display and modern Android specifications. But the poor cameras and the mid-range Snapdragon 71
Release timing is critical to Motorola, as fierce clamshell-style competition in the foldable space is said to be expected in February. If the rumors are true, Samsung's next leaflet could be announced on February 11 – just a few days after the Razr launched.
