The Dazzling Motorola Razr (2019) Is Soon Coming To India

Motorola Razr (2019), the first foldable smartphone in a clamshell design by the Lenovo-owned company, is all set to make its entry in India. This was confirmed by a company’s teaser. To recall, the Motorola Razr (2019) was launched globally last month but is due to hit stores in the US in January. The smartphone is in stiff competition with smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X with a flexible screen. There is also a secondary display that the company calls a Quick View panel for accessing notifications, music controls, and Google Assistant among other features.

The tweet posted by Motorola revealed that Motorola Razr (2019) will launch in India soon. However, the teaser has not spilled the beans by mentioning the release date or the details of the pricing. After its global debut in November, the company has hosted a registration page on its India website where interested consumers can sign up to receive updates.

Although the company has not disclosed the exact price of Motorola Razr (2019) in India, it is expected to be in line with what was announced in the US last month. The smartphone is set to carry a price tag of $1,499 (roughly Rs. 1,06,000), which is significantly lower than the price of the Samsung Galaxy Fold that is already on sale at $1,980 (roughly Rs. 1,40,000). The Galaxy Fold also launched in India at Rs. 1,64,999.

But why does Motorola Razr come with this heavy pricing?  Coming with a completely different package, the foldable phone adorns a 6.2-inch flexible OLED HD+ (876×2142 pixels) display with a 21:9 aspect ratio that folds completely in half. In the folded state, the phone offers the secondary 2.7-inch (600×800 pixels) Quick View display that can be used to capture selfie, view notifications, and control music playback among accessing other features.

Under the hood, the Motorola Razr (2019) has the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM. The smartphone has a 16-megapixel primary camera sensor with an f/1.7 lens that can be used to take selfies in the folded state or as a primary sensor in the unfolded state. Further, there is a 5-megapixel secondary camera that is available in the display notch.

The Motorola Razr (2019) comes with a fingerprint sensor that is accessible in both folded and unfolded states.

Motorola has provided Android 9 Pie with a list of custom changes, including a secret ‘Retro Razr’ skin to provide a nostalgic feel to Razr fans. The smartphone doesn’t come with a SIM card slot, though it does support cellular networks via eSIM cards. Also, there are connectivity options such as 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port.

Further, the Razr (2019) packs a 2,510mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging. The phone measures 72x172x6.9mm in the unfolded state and 72x94x14mm in the folded. Besides, it weighs just 205 grams.
