Motorola, owned by Lenovo, has released a video on YouTube detailing how to take care of their new US $1,500 Motorola Razr.

It’s led to speculation that the upcoming Razr will, in fact, be used differently to traditional models.

The company also took the opportunity to tell prospective buyers that ‘bumps and lumps’ under the screen are normal and that consumers should avoid buying a screen protector.

It seems the foldable smartphone is so new that they are released with disclaimers and warnings until the foldable smartphone’s design and technology is improved.

Motorola recently confirmed that the new Razr would be available from February 6 in the US – with pre-orders already being available from Verizon, Motorola or Walmart.

No reports have yet been made on when the Razr will be available in Australia.

Other features of the Razr include water-repellent quality, but the company still stresses owners should clean the screen if it gets wet.

Although it doesn’t have an official water resistance IP rating, Motorola is still claiming the flip phone will be resistant against moderate exposure to water – such as spills or light rain.

Additionally, the Razr’s hinge mechanism will likely give off a lumpy texture under the centre of the screen. The company doesn’t reveal the reasons behind this slight aesthetic flaw, but Samsung’s Galaxy Fold had similar issues.

Motorola also advised consumers to generally avoid sharp objects coming into contact with the phone.

Additionally, the company also said owners shouldn’t stash the Razr in pockets or bags when its unfolded as it may cause damage to the foldable screen.

It is speculated Motorola will make an announcement about Australian release dates for the Razr around early February.
