If you've been patiently waiting for the 2020 Motorola Razr pre-orders to go live then we have good news for you: you can pre-order the new Motorola Razr from EE from today.
Once you've placed your order, EE says you can expect despatch within 28 days to you or your local EE store, which means you could be rocking the cool modern-retro clamshell before the end of February.
So what will the 2020 Moto Razr cost you? The cheapest plan for the new handset on EE is £94 a month with an up-front cost for the phone of £100. That's a 24-month contract which will get you 10GB of 4G data and unlimited minutes and texts.
There are 10 plans in total available from EE. All are 24-month contracts:
- 10GB data: £94 a month, £100 phone cost
- 10GB data: £99 a month, £100 phone cost (one swappable benefit included)
- 30GB data: £99 a month, £50 phone cost
- 30GB data: £104 a month, £50 phone cost (one swappable benefit included)
- 60GB data: £99 a month, £50 phone cost (60GB for the price of 30GB off)
- 60GB data: £104 a month, £50 phone cost (one swappable benefit included) (60GB for the price of 30GB offer)
- 100GB data: £104 a month, £30 phone cost
- 100GB data: £109 a month, £30 phone cost (two swappable benefits included)
- Unlimited data: £109 a month, £30 phone cost
- Unlimited data: £114 a month, £30 phone cost (two swappable benefits included)
So you're looking at a total cost of between £2,356 and £2,766 for the handset over the two-year period. That's a little expensive if you're comparing the Motorola Razr on a price/performance ratio with the iPhone 11 or Samsung Galaxy S10 or Note 10 but if you're planning to buy the new Razr you're probably not buying it for high end specs. You're buying it because it's beautiful and as everyone knows: you can't put a price on beauty.
Our pick of the Motorola Razr UK plans? If you're going to spend £94 a month for 10GB of data, you might as well up your budget a bit and spend £109 a month for unlimited data and those two swappable benefits.
Need something to sweeten the deal? There's a free travel pouch included. So what are you waiting for?
In the US, the new Razr will initially be available exclusively through Verizon for $1,499.99, or $62.49/month on a 24-month payment plan. Pre-orders were due to open on December 26, 2019 and then the phone was due to get a release date during January 2020, but those dates were delayed by Motorola due to high demand. According to The Verge, pre-orders will now start on 26 January while the phone will be out on 6 February, and pre-orders will be available exclusively at Verizon, Walmart, and on Motorola.com.
If you want a clamshell phone but you're balking at the price, the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (code named the Galaxy Bloom) may be more up your street. Samsung's Razr challenger is expected to be unveiled alongside the Samsung Galaxy S20 at a Samsung Unpacked event on 11 February 2020 and the latest leak says that the Galaxy Z Flip will be priced at around €1,400 (about £1,180).
