Motorola Razr, the flexible flip phone, which was scheduled to launch in India on April 15, is delayed further in view of the extended lockdown. The phone will now go on sale on May 6. The Prime Minister announced that the lockdown would be extended till May 3 in India; though some concessions will come into place from April 20, these are limited to certain industries.
In a statement, Motorola said, “Due to the prevailing situation and extension of nationwide lockdown, sale of all non-essential products and services has been discontinued. In line with the government guidelines, Motorola razr will now go on sale after the revised lockdown period, starting May 6th 2020 (which was earlier scheduled for 15th April, 2020). We are hopeful that the situation will get better in the coming days and are working with our partners towards ensuring a smooth purchase experience for consumers across both online and offline channels, once the lockdown is lifted.”
Motorola Razr is not the only delayed launch in India thanks to the lockdown. OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro do not have a timeline for the India launch just yet, though the phones have been announced for the market. The Amazon India page for both phones is also live. Xiaomi has also delayed the launch of its flagship Mi 10 smartphone in the market, which was scheduled for March 31. The company has not revealed when the phone will launch, but given the extended lockdown, it would be safe to say this will take place in May.
