Motorola resurrected the foldable Razr late last year where it sported its iconic clamshell-like design in a smartphone avatar. The phone, which recently went on sale in the US, is confirmed to launch ‘soon’ in India. A new video shows it is being manufactured in India.
Popular YouTuber Zack Nelson, whose channel JerryRigEverything, where he features tear-down videos where he subjects various gadgets to extreme conditions of wear and tear, recently uploaded a video performing a durability test on the Moto Razr.
During the scratch test taking place at 6:40 onwards, the video showed the rear panel at the bottom sporting a ‘Made in India’ text underneath the Razr logo.
Moto Razr 2019 was previously rumoured to be manufactured in India. The smartphone’s retail box, which is identical to the one being sold in the US, came with the ‘made in India’ text.
The Motorola Razr 2019 is yet to be launched in India, but no official date has been confirmed as of yet. The company has started taking registrations from interested buyers.
Since the foldable smartphone is being manufactured in India, we can expect the Razr to have some concession on its price tag when launched. The Razr foldable smartphone retails for $1,500 in the US.
