Motorola Razr (2019) Set to Launch in India 'Soon', Company Teases

Motorola Razr (2019), the first foldable smartphone in a clamshell design by the Lenovo-owned company, is set to make its way to India. Motorola has teased the India launch of the Razr (2019) through a tweet. To recall, the Motorola Razr (2019) was launched globally last month but is due to hit shores in the US in January. The smartphone competes against the likes of 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 the Motorola India account highlights that the Motorola Razr (2019) will launch in India “soon”. However, it doesn't provide any concrete release date or pricing details. Since the global debut in November, the company has hosted a registration page on its India website where interested consumers can sign up to receive updates.

Motorola Razr (2019) price in India (expected)

Although Motorola hasn't announced the Motorola Razr (2019) price 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).

In the folded state, the phone offers the secondary 2.7-inch (600x800 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.

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.
