Motorola has announced the postponement of pre-orders and the start of sales of the foldable Razr smartphone. It was previously planned that the first customers would receive Razr on December 26, and the device was supposed to go on sale in January.

But Motorola wants to avoid a situation in which not everyone is able to purchase the new product due to high demand. Therefore, the company decided to postpone the launch of the foldable smartphone for a little while.

We want to remind you that the new Razr was introduced in November 2019. The device received a design reminiscent of the legendary Motorola RAZR V3 (2004), but with a flexible 6.2-inch display. The price of the smartphone is $1,499 in the USA, and for now, it will only be available in this country.

Here’s the company’s full statement,

Since its announcement in November, the new Motorola razr has received unparalleled excitement and interest from consumers. Demand has been high, and as a result, has quickly outgrown supply predictions.

Motorola has decided to adjust razr’s presale and launch timing to better meet consumer demand. We are working to determine the appropriate quantity and schedule to ensure that more consumers have access to razr at launch.

We do not anticipate a significant shift from our original availability timeline.
