Preorders for the Motorola Razr have been backed up until midway through next month. According to a new notice on Motorola's website on Monday, the expected delivery date of the foldable flip phone is now Feb. 18, 2020. It follows Motorola delaying the sale of its Razr by a month in December, as preorders for the phone finally went live on Jan. 26 for a delivery date of Feb. 6.

It's unknown whether all deliveries have been pushed back, or whether mid-February is the expected delivery date if you order it now after the first wave has already been sold out. Motorola confirmed the delay Wednesday morning.

"The latest delivery estimates being given on new Razr preorders are due to high demand," the company said in an emailed statement.

The Motorola Razr comes with a 6.2-inch internal screen and a 2.7-inch outer display, a 16-megapixel rear camera and 128GB of onboard storage.
