Moto Razr 2022 launch back on track – this time the date is August 11

Written by admin

We are back on track, ladies and gentlemen. After the abrupt last minute cancellation of the Moto Razr 2022 launch event, Motorola has given us a new date to look forward to – August 11.

In a post on Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging website, Chen Jin (the head of Motorola and Lenovo Mobile) announced that the official launch event for the Moto Razr 2022 will take place on August 11. This information has since been covered by GSMArena in a recent article.

Jin also posted a very sleek photo of the Moto Razr 2022 with the launch date and time on the outer screen of the device. Now would be a good time to mention that the Motorola X30 Pro will also be making its debut alongside the Razr 2022, but it looks like the latter has stolen the spotlight all to itself.

It should be noted that the Moto Razr 2022 and X30 Pro would be officially launched in China on August 2. The date was strategic in a sense, as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, the biggest competitor to the Razr 2022, will be officially unveiled on August 10. According to the previous schedule, the foldable Motorola would have made its debut a full week before the Z Flip 4.

Now, the Moto Razr 2022 launch event will actually take place the day after that for the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Needless to say, this confirms Motorola’s ambition to hold out against Samsung, the undisputed leader in the foldable market.

For reference, the reasons behind the decision to push back the event were never disclosed. Most analysts speculate that the cancellation was the result of mounting geopolitical tensions between China and Taiwan, which have reached a boiling point with the official visit of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. It seems that politics poses problems even for tech geeks.
