The China owned consumer electronics and telecommunications company technology firm Lenovo which primarily manufactures smartphones and other mobile devices running the Android operating system developed by Google are here with the Motorola Razr smart foldable device.
Motorola Razr is an upcoming Android foldable smartphone produced by Motorola. Unveiled on November 14, 2019, it is set to be released on February 18, 2020. The device is designed to be reminiscent of the original Motorola Razr feature phone series and features a horizontally foldable screen. It sure makes one nostalgic, but at $1499.99, it’s quite an expensive device for the specs on offer. However, if you decide to buy it from Verizon, you can save up to $700 on your purchase.
If you are an existing Verizon customer, you can save $500 upon adding a new line and trading in your old device. And if you switch to an Unlimited plan, you get $200 on a Prepaid Mastercard, meaning a total saving of $700.

The 2019 Razr can also be purchased from Motorola’s official site, but there are no discounts or trade-in options available right now.
That said, irrespective of whether you purchase the Razr 2019 from Verizon or Motorola, your order will start shipping from February 25, instead of February 18.
The Motorola Razr 2019 is powered by the Snapdragon 710 SoC and comes with two displays – the 6.2″ main foldable display, and the 2.7″ external secondary screen. You can read our Motorola Razr 2019 hands-on to learn more about it.
Motorola Razr key specs, and expected price
The device will ship with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage and has a Snapdragon 710 processor. There is also one 16 MP camera, but as company officials confirmed multiple times, this device is expected to sell for its form factor and not specs sheet. The price in the United States is $1,499, while Europe is looking at a €1,600 price tag.
Motorola is unlikely to start selling the new Razr at the free market since it has no physical SIM slot – only eSIM – meaning it is limited to carriers that support this feature.
