Motorola Razr: Available for Pre-Orders on Flipkart, maybe sale from May 8
Motorola Razr 2020: The flip phone with a folding OLED display and remarkable looks Well, that’s going on sale finally after many delays. The Razr has finally gone up for pre-orders on Flipkart, and you can assume the deliveries to begin beginning May 8.
The Razr was the first flip phone with a folding display and is Motorola’s flagship model for the Indian market at the time.
Motorola stated the Razr for India on March 16, but ever since then, the company has seen innumerable delays while placing it on sale due to the COVID-19 lockdown. It initially thought to go on sale in late March. However, with the Indian government raising the restriction in safe zones, the company is now able to sell the Razr in India.
The Razr was announced for Rs 1,24,999, and surprisingly, the price has persisted unchanged. The Indian government raised the GST rates from 12 percent to 18 percent from the new financial year, but Motorola has so far held the original pricing. This makes the Razr a more significant deal than before as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip saw a price increase up to Rs 1,15,840.
The Razr is the first folding mobile that has a water-repellent coating. The Razr also makes use of a smart hinge system that limits the flexible OLED display from acquiring a crease. The display slides under the chin while folded to limit the ridge.
The Razr is also both high on style and function. The mobile gets that iconic appearance from the 2004 model, but it has a more useable 2.7-inch Quick View display. Unlike the Samsung Z Flip, the Razr’s external display enables you to read messages and even communicate with a few, use it as a viewfinder for selfies via the primary camera, control music playback, and check the time.
The 6.3-inch plastic OLED display inside has a cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio that makes for a more immersive viewing experience. The Razr also has a 5-megapixel internal camera to do video calls.
The Razr loses out to the Samsung Z Flip in terms of specifications. You only get a Snapdragon 710 chip paired to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. That stated, it runs on stock Android 9 Pie with no bloat or pre-installed apps. Motorola also announces that it will improve the Razr to Android 10 as well.
The Razr is currently available in Noir Black only. Motorola is offering a few launch-offers, including a free screen replacement as well as other advantages.
