At the end of last year, Lenovo’s owned Motorola released the Razr foldable phone. The smartphone received a very positive feedback but in return the company hasn’t given us an official release date.
Motorola Razr Delayed in China to Late Q2
Today, Liu Jun, the senior vice president and president Lenovo Consumer Business Group, revealed that the Moto Razr may be released at the end of the second quarter of this year; he was referring specifically to the Chinese market.
As you probably already know, the Moto Razr was launched by Lenovo in the US market in November of 2019. Yesterday, Yang Yuanqing, Chairman and CEO of Lenovo Group, confirmed that due to market demand and supply issues, the sale of this product in the US market has been delayed.
As for the Chinese launch, Liu Jun said that Moto Razr will support 5G networks in the Asian country; which means additional work. Meanwhile the reliability of the folding technology has to reach 100,000 times folded without damage.
Hardware wise, the Motorola Razr packs a small 2.7 inches screen on the outside in the folded state with a resolution of 800 × 600. On the inside, we instead find a 6.2-inch folding screen with a resolution of 2142 × 876. It’s worth mentioning that there’s also a quite large bezel under the display; which is also where we find the fingerprint scanner. Motorola’s smartphone is then powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, adopts Android 9 Pie operating system, sports 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and packs a battery with a capacity of 2510mAh.
Finally, as we already know since launch, the Motorola Razr 2019 will be quite pricey at $1499.
