Following a brief delay, Motorola’s Razr foldable phone is now available for pre-order. This is good news for those who are looking to get their hands on a twist on the foldable phone concept, although we’re sure that with the debacle with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, there are some who might be a bit skeptical about the Razr and its durability.
Motorola seems to understand this and has since published a video titled “Caring for Razr”. In this video, the company attempts to reassure would-be customers that any “bumps and lumps” that they might see in the phone’s display are apparently normal. This is expected to happen the more users use their phones.
It is the side-effect of the way flexible displays are currently made, and should not be taken as a sign of defect or that their device is broken. The company also claims that the Razr has been engineered with a more durable hinge that allows for a bit more “give” in terms of its flexibility and durability.
This does not mean that the phone has been built to be a rugged device. The video also highlights some of the preventive measures that users can take to ensure their device lasts as long as possible. The handset is currently up for pre-order where it is priced at $1,500.
