Motorola Razr launches October 2 and T-Mobile has two deals on the new foldable


Following its official debut earlier this month, the new Motorola Razr foldable is nearly ready to start showing up on T-Mobile shelves.

The Motorola Razr will be available from T-Mobile starting this Friday, October 2. Pricing will be $0 down and $58.34 per month for 24 months or $1,399.99 full retail price.

If you are interested in Motorola’s new foldable phone, T-Mobile will have a couple of deals that’ll help you get it for less. You can get the Motorola Razr for half off (save $700) with 24 monthly bill credits when you activate a new line of service and trade in an eligible device.

The phones eligible for trade-in with this deal include:

  • Apple: iPhone 11, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone X, iPhone XR, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus
  • Samsung: Galaxy Note 10 series, Note 9, Galaxy S10 series, S9 series
  • Google: Pixel 4 and 4 XL, Pixel 3 and 3 XL
  • OnePlus: OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren 5G, OnePlus 7T
  • LG: LG V60 ThinQ

If you don’t need a new line, you can still get $400 off the Motorola Razr with 24 monthly bill credits when you trade in an eligible device.

The new Motorola Razr features a foldable 6.2-inch 2142×876 OLED display plus a 2.7-inch 800×600 OLED outer screen that you can use to check notifications and use apps like Messages, Calculator, Spotify, and Pandora. The main camera on the Razr is a 48MP snapper, and you can use the secondary screen as a viewfinder so that you can take selfies with that main cam.

Other features of the Motorola Razr include a Snapdragon 765G processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a rear fingerprint reader, and a 2800mAh battery. The foldable is compatible with T-Mobile’s 600MHz and 2.5GHz 5G coverage.

Now that T-Mobile’s launch date and pricing for the Motorola Razr are official, are you thinking about buying the new foldable?

    Seems like a small battery.

      I agree. The choice of a SD 765 is also surprising considering the price. This phone is set up to fail straight out of the gate.

        For day to day use it’s fine. It’s only us “nerds” who are going to be concerned with it.

        It’s a 1.5gen foldable, someone getting this will swap it in 1-2yrs anyway.. so this will not be an issue for 99.9% of people.

        • dcmanryan

          I get that. My point is the price is not justified with that chip, not rather or not it will be good enough. Same issue the Pixel 5 has.

        • Brad C

          Just as the original RAZR was far behind and low spec compared to the other phones of its time. Its purely the definition of a status symbol and form over function

          I’m almost betting with it being carrier agnostic it’ll sell really well to that crowd as well

        • dcmanryan

          Time will tell. Personally I think the folding from top to bottom phones will all be going away and we will continue to see more of the side to side opening phones as you actually gain some real estate with them and they off more than a regular sized phone.

        • Brad C

          Maybe, I personally don’t like the side fold.. as I’m not looking for tablet functionality in my pocket.

          The screen size on the z-flip and razr are the max I want to carry around, and having a more pocketable experience when I’m somewhere like the gym (where my note and 11 ProMax like to fall out of my pocket randomly) is the sweet spot for my usage
