Will RW be able to offer the NEW Razor by Motorola?
Hi @dukewags and welcome to the Member Community! I’m just another member with no inside track on RW plans. RW doesn’t really share future plans. Updates are posted as announcements here: https://forums.republicwireless.com/c/news

Here’s a thread you might also find interesting –
Anything else I say would be conjecture mixed with some hope. Don’t know if anyone else has anything to share. They will certainly jump in if they do
- Why would I want to spend $1200 for a phone with some of the following limitations:
- Android 10
- A 2800 mAh battery
- Only supports the sub-6GHz 5G bands (so I wouldn’t be able to get the full benefit of 5G when Republic/T-Mobile makes it available)
- WiFi is 802.11ac (WiFi5) while 802.11ax (WiFi6) much faster and is the latest
- A single main camera?

I agree with your other points, but T-Mobile will never have any real mmWave coverage worth worrying about… Their 5G rollout is almost entirely concentrated in the low and mid-band space. Here they are talking about it a couple of years ago: T-Mobile says 5G mmWave deployments ‘will never materially scale’
This is why I was exploring about the phone. If there where unknowns. You have pointed some great points. It may not be a good viable for the RW platform.
