Motorola Razr is finally going on sale in India from Friday May 8, the company announced via its Twitter account. When the Moto Razr (2019) was launched in November last year, it attracted a lot of attention owing to its unique folding mechanism and the nostalgia factor. The sale of the phone — like many others — got delayed in India owing to the coronavirus related lockdown. Now, as restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 are being eased, Motorola has announced that the Motorola Razr (2019) will go on sale tomorrow.
The Motorola Razr (2019) is going on sale for the first time in India and will be sold on Flipkart. While e-commerce for non-essentials like smartphones isn't available throughout the country yet, restrictions have been somewhat relaxed, and deliveries of non-essential products has resumed in certain areas.
As per the Twitter post by Motorola India, the sale for the Motorola Razr (2019) begins from Friday, May 8. The phone is listed on Flipkart for Rs. 1,24,999. However, it should be noted that e-commerce websites have been allowed to deliver non-essential items in Orange and Green zones only, which means if the customer's pincode does not lie within either of these zones, they can't have the phone delivered to them. Delivery times may also be longer than usual.
Flipkart is also offering Rs. 10,000 cashback on transactions with Citibank Credit and Debit cards
