The new Motorola Razr will be available for buying in India from Flipkart and physical retail stores from April 2.
Lenovo-owned Motorola launched the ‘new’ Motorola Razr in India on Monday, March 16 at a price of Rs 1,24,999. The company had been teasing the launch since November last year, around the same time the product was officially launched in the US as a Verizon exclusive. The new Motorola Razr is a throwback to the Moto Razr V3 from 2004 but with a twist. The new Motorola Razr is a ‘foldable’ flip smartphone that runs Android. You can read more about it here.
It’s obvious where Motorola is drawing inspiration from. The design and form factor is like the original Moto Razr V3. On top of that base, Motorola has given modern touches like a full touch-screen display that flips into something a lot more compact easy to fit into your pocket. The setup also allows Motorola to add a secondary cover display on the outside in the new Motorola Razr.

It comes with a 16MP camera on the rear and a 5MP front-facing camera.
