The original Moto Razr is considered an iconic smartphone. Last year, Motorola rebooted the Razr into a sleek foldable smartphone. Sadly, the device had rather underwhelming specifications and suffered from build quality issues. Recently, Motorola launched the Razr 5G, which has much better internals and promises to be better built as well. Motorola has now revealed that the second-generation foldable will launch in India on October 5, 12 pm. Just like last year’s Razr, this too will be sold via Flipkart. Interested buyers can head over to Motorola India’s website to register and receive the latest updates. Also Read - Motorola Moto E7 Plus review: Best camera smartphone under Rs 10,000
The Motorola Razr 5G is expected to be more expensive in India as compared to the US. To recall, the second-generation foldable was launched at $1399 (roughly Rs 1.03 lakhs) in the US. The current Motorola Razr is available for Rs 1,24,999 on Flipkart and we expect the new phone to cost roughly the same. The Razr 5G is only available in a single variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. There are three colors on offer – Blush Gold, Liquid Mercury, and Polished Graphite.
