Motorola Razr (2019) caught much attention when it was released in November 2019. And, surprisingly, a company spokesperson teased a second-generation Motorola Razr foldable smartphone for a September launch in May this year. But now, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it seems that the successor to the 2019 Razr might be delayed till next year. The CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants shared the details on Twitter.
The “Motorola Razr 2,” as Young calls it, will not be available until 2021, according to the tweet by Ross Young, who is the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants. Young says that COVID-19 has delayed it by a quarter. Considering Lenovo South Africa general manager Thibault Dousson’s September launch date from the previous teaser, the second-generation Motorola Razr foldable phone can now be introduced in the first quarter of 2021. Like the Motorola Razr (2019), it is also possible that the company will advertise the phone in the fourth quarter of this year and the sales start in early 2021.
The Motorola Razr foldable phone of the second generation will compete with the rumoured Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the Galaxy Fold 2, which is intended to be revealed in August.
The Motorola Razr (2019) introduced in November 2019 and sold out quickly this year as of February. Then, the smartphone was launched in India and Pakistan in March, and the sale was delayed several days due to lockdowns of coronavirus.
The Motorola Razr (2019) includes a flexible 6.2-inch OLED HD+ display with 21:9 aspect ratio (876×2,142 pixels). It is driven by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC octa-core, paired with a 6GB RAM. It is equipped with a primary 16-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 lens and a front selfie camera with a 5-megapixel sensor just above the main display. The mobile device is supported by 2.510mAh with 15W fast charging support.
