Motorola cancels the launch event for the Razr 2022 and X30 Pro

Written by admin

Today was the day. Motorola has been teasing its upcoming clamshell foldable, the Razr 2022 for quite some time, and we’d finally see its unveiling.

A larger and more functional outer display, vastly improved tech specs (including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Gen 1 SoC), and a respectable battery are just some of the highlights of the highly anticipated foldable.

Not to mention that the Razr 2022 would debut a full week earlier than the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, its closest direct competitor. Unfortunately, it was too good to be true.

The launch of the state-of-the-art collapsible was scheduled for today, August 2. Unfortunately, Motorola canceled the event just hours before the official start.

This information was first shared by Chen Jin, the general manager of Lenovo Mobile (for reference, Lenovo acquired Motorola’s mobile division from Google in 2014).

Jin broke the news a message on Weibo, a popular Chinese microblogging website. It was then first covered by Android Authority in a special article.

Jin’s announcement is very succinct and does not reveal any specific details as to why the event is being canceled at the very last minute. There is also no mention of a possible rescheduling.

Jin simply expressed his gratitude for the public interest and support for Motorola’s upcoming devices and invited users to keep an eye on Moto’s official information platform for further updates.

Android Authority speculates the cancellation comes in the wake of rising geopolitical tensions, exacerbated by plans by United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi to visit Taiwan.

This also means that users will also have to wait longer for the Motorola X30 Pro, which is expected to appear alongside the Razr 2022. The X30 Pro is hailed as Motorola’s first smartphone with a 200MP camera sensor.
