Motorola Razr 5G launch date in the US unveiled for October 2

After taking the wraps off its new Razr smartphone earlier this month, Motorola on Tuesday announced when the foldable will be available — and it’ll come at a pretty nice discount.

Motorola revealed the new foldable Razr 5G will be available in the U.S. on October 2 for $1,199, which is a $200 discount on the regular retail price. The new Razr will be available at AT&T and T-Mobile, and unlocked through Motorola, Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo in Polished Graphite, Blush Gold, and Liquid Mercury (AT&T exclusive) colors.

Here are some of the promotions being offered during the new Motorola Razr 5G’s launch:

  • At AT&T, for a limited time, both new and existing customers who trade in an eligible device and purchase the Motorola razr on a qualifying installment plan with an eligible AT&T unlimited wireless plan could qualify for one of the following offers:
    • New customers get up to $700 off (50% off) the device by bringing their number to AT&T.
    • Existing customers get up to $400 off by adding a line or up to $300 off by upgrading their device.*
    • HBO Max is included on the AT&T Unlimited Elite plan
  • At T-Mobile, for a limited time, has two offers for new and existing customers:
    • Get the Motorola razr for half off with 24 monthly bill credits when you activate a new line and trade-in an eligible device.
    • Get $400 off the Motorola razr with 24 monthly bill credits and eligible device trade in.
  • At Motorola.com, Amazon.com, Best Buy and B&H Photo, for a limited time, customers can purchase the new razr for $200 off with no contract needed!

Announced at the beginning of September, the new Motorola Razr 5G is a step above the version introduced last year. Not only does the new device feature support for 5G, but it introduces a more durable design, a beefier processor, a larger battery, and an improved rear camera.
