Lenovo-owned Motorola, after launching its much-awaited vertically foldable smartphone “Moto Razr” at $1,500 in the US on November 14, has announced slight delay in the pre-order and launch timing due to significant demand.


“We would like to share an update on Motorola Razr’s pre-sale and in-store availability. Since its announcement in November, the new Motorola Razr has received unparalleled excitement and interest from consumers. Demand has been high and has quickly outgrown supply predictions,” the company said recently.

Motorola has decided to adjust Razr’s pre-sale and launch timing to better meet consumer demand. We are working to determine the appropriate quantity and schedule to ensure that more consumers have access to Razr at launch. We don’t anticipate a significant shift from our original availability timeline,” the company said.

The Lenovo-owned company launched the iconic flip phone Moto Razr (2019) at a press event in Los Angeles last month. The 2019 Motorola Razr is a foldable display phone in the same flip form factor as the original Moto Razr from 2004. In the United States, Motorola had previously announced the availability date as December 26., which has now been delayed until next announcement.
