Moto Razr 5G Sold Out In Two Minutes?

Motorola has reportedly revealed its next-generation Razr 5G foldable smartphone sold out within two minutes for the Chinese market.

Reported by Gizmochina, the Lenovo-owned company states the impressive feat occured after the device went on sale in China on September 15, however, exact first-round units were not disclosed.

The handset will reportedly go on sale again in China on September 21, available via Motorola’s website and other retailers such as JD.com.

The achievement reflects robust demand despite the handset’s premium price-tag, accompanied by design and software improvements versus its predecessor.

The Moto Razr 5G (2020) is tipped to release locally later this year for around US$1399 or A$2,500.

The news comes as the foldable phone category continues to expand, with entrants from the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Galaxy Z Flip.

The handset continues to pay homage to its iconic flip-phone, with the latest version offering a thicker build, reduced ‘chin’ size, and rear fingerprint scanner. Increased thickness houses a slew of internal improvements, including more powerful camera parts.

The handset offers a 20MP and 48MP camera, powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8GB RAM and a 2,800mAh battery.

The front facing 2.7-inch screen has received a slew of functional upgrades, including quick access to many apps such as Google News, Google Home and YouTube. Users can also add apps to the quick access panel, which increases the likelihood of not having to open the handset, extending battery life.

Australian pricing and release date is yet to be formally announced.
