  Motorola Razr preorder and launch delayed The company doesn't say when the new foldable will come out, noting only that it doesn't "anticipate a significant shift" in timing.The phone maker, a unit of Chinese consumer electronics giant Lenovo, didn't have a lot of specific details on the new release date, noting only that it doesn't "anticipate a significant shift" in timing. Motorola cited higher-than-expected demand and limited supply as a reason for the delay.

Motorola seems less worried about that than it s about bumps and lumps , the video states "Screen is made to Today’s the day that the Motorola Razr is available for pre -sale for 99, exclusively on Verizon. A more recent rumor hinted that the Z Flip may have an “ultra thin” glass display .

Motorola released a whole slew of YouTube videos Sunday about its new Razr , a revamped throwback to its mid-2000s flip phone of the same name, in celebration of the phone’s pre - order But with them came a disclaimer about the foldable phone: “Screen is made to bend; bumps and lumps are normal .”

On Sunday, pre-orders for the resurrected Motorola Razr opened up; complementing the launch, the company published a video outlining how to care for the folding display device, stating that "bumps and lumps" in the screen are "normal."

Over the weekend, Motorola opened up pre-orders in the US for the 2020 iteration of the nostalgic flip phone Razr that ruled the early 2000s; instead of sporting the model's iconic dial pad on the half of the device below the hinge, however, there is now a touchscreen that spans all the way to the top ear speaker.

  The new Moto Razr looks so futuristic it’s now delayed The Motorola Razr launch has been delayed beyond its original January date to fix supply issues, but the company hasn’t given a revised release window.Motorola delayed the presale and launch to “better meet consumer demand,” according to a statement sent out to publications by parent company Lenovo. “Demand has been high, and as a result, has quickly outgrown supply predictions.

Motorola revealed its Razr -branded foldable phone back in November, following months of leaks and rumors. Now the day has come for you to put down ,500 for the device ⁠— and switch to Verizon, if you haven't already. The Razr is now available for pre - order from Verizon's online store, with a price

razr transforms an industry challenge into an engineering breakthrough. Moto Display gives you a quick preview of notifications and updates, so you don’t have to unlock your phone to see what’s going on. Motorola razr is designed and manufactured by Motorola Mobility, a wholly owned subsidiary

As was infamously demonstrated with Samsung's Galaxy Fold, displays with flexible screens as such are incredibly fragile at this stage in the game. In fact, Motorola published a video to YouTube the same day the device went on pre-sale outlining how to properly care for the new Razr.

If the phone gets wet, the company recommends wiping it off with a dry cloth. Also, to avoid having the same problem that Samsung faced, Motorola explicitly states that the display has a protective layer -- no additional screen protector necessary -- and that owners should avoid bringing it into contact with sharp objects.

The most notable detail about the Razr revealed in this video is that "bumps and lumps" in the display are "normal." Without the device having been sent out early to testers and journalists, it's impossible to gauge just how fragile the display will be.

This Razr is priced at $1,499.99, over $1,000 more expensive than the original.

Deliveries are expected to begin February 10.
