- It will make its debut on October 5 and will be available through Flipkart.

After its global announcement in early September and its US launch earlier this week, the Motorola Razr 5G is now setting its sights on India.

On the face of it, it doesn’t seem Motorola will be nerfing features to fit any particular pricing niche in the Indian market. The 2.7-inch outer display is still present to guard the 6.2-inch folding screen, a design combo that has become the Razr’s calling card.
Although the company doesn’t confirm any other specs, we can likely expect the internals to remain the same, too. This should mean the return of the Snapdragon 765G chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. Expect a 2,800mAh battery with 15W charging and a 48MP rear camera, too.
As for the price, we can only posit an educated guess for now. The Razr 5G made its global debut at $1,399 which would tip the phone’s Indian price just over the Rs 100,000 mark. Despite that six-digit figure, it could still be the cheapest foldable phone made available in the country. We’ve seen a slew of discounts in the US since its launch though, so it might follow a similar formula in India.
Thankfully, there’s not long to wait for confirmation. The Motorola Razr 5G will make its debut in the country on October 5, at 12 PM IST (2:30 AM ET), and will retail through Flipkart.
