Today Motorola announced it will ship its foldable flip smartphone on February 6 and will start pre-orders on January 26. The new Motorola Razr will be available for pre-order directly from the company, from Verizon, and from Walmart. Being a unique phone with a foldable display, the list price for the 2020 Razr without contract is set to be $1500.

The main feature of the new Motorola Razr is its exclusive clamshell design with a foldable 6.2-inch pOLED main screen and a 2.7-inch OLED external display. Because of internal architecture of the smartphone, and space constraints, Motorola use Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage rather than a flagship 8-series SoCs. 

Motorola originally planned to start taking pre-orders on the new Razr on December 26, 2019, to then begin shipments on January 6, 2020. As it turns out, the demand for the foldable flip smartphone was so high that the company had to delay its launch to build more units. 

The new Motorola Razr will cost $1,499. Verizon will offer trade-in programs to its customers (up to $300 per device) and those who switch to it (up to $500 per device) to sweeten the deal. Furthermore, it will be possible to split up the price of the new Razr to 24 payments of $62.49 a month.

    I like the design a lot, but the price.........ouch.

    Yup. It's priced way out of what it does / commands. I'd probably pay 200 max for this and that too only if I'm in a good mood. Better phones than this going for 250 to 300.

    yes specs are low but the screen is dope and battery placement is most likely both reason for cost and specs

    I really think Samsung's rumored Galaxy Z looks much better, and has much better specs being in the same price range, and that's before considering the possibility that it comes with a flexible glass screen, not this plastic.

    Yeah but imagine your walking down the street and you get a call, you flip up your phone. People around you look at the cool looking device. And then a really cute girl asks :Oh wow, what kind of phone is that?" And then you reply:"Oh this phone, oh it's nothing, just the new razor foldable OLED phone, it's no big deal".

    It is a technology showcase. Like the Galaxy Fold or even the Tesla S, let the early adopters with disposable income fund this tech for the bragging rights, so we can have it down the road for pennies on the dollar.

    "for the bragging rights"? Needlessly dismissive. Some people may value the feature more than you and are willing to pay more than you for it.
