Motorola's foldable RAZR, which was unveiled by the Lenovo-owned company in November last year, is finally available for pre-order in the U.S. The foldable phone can now be pre-ordered from Verizon's online store for $1,500. You can also choose to pay $62.49 in monthly installments over 24 months.
While Motorola had said last week that the foldable phone would be available in stores from February 6, Verizon's website suggests it will begin shipping only by February 14. Apart from the U.S., the foldable RAZR is currently available for pre-order in the UK as well.
As with Samsung's Galaxy Fold, Motorola has released multiple RAZR videos (via The Verge) with useful information for potential buyers, including precautions to ensure the phone's screen doesn't get damaged. Since the RAZR's screen has been designed to bend, the Lenovo-owned company says "bumps and lumps are normal."
Motorola RAZR owners will need to ensure that they don't get the phone's display "too wet" and keep all sharp objects away from it. In case the screen gets wet, users must wipe it with a dry cloth. The company also points out that users must close the phone before putting it inside a pocket and that a screen protector shouldn't be applied.
Motorola's RAZR reboot is a highly desirable foldable phone that is a lot more compact than Samsung's Galaxy Fold and Huawei's Mate X. The phone comes with a 6.2-inch main display and a 2.7-inch outer display. While the RAZR's hardware specs may not be very impressive, its unique design sets it apart from anything else that is available on the market currently.
