The Moto Razr 2022 is almost here and some people can almost taste it. Others, on the other hand, have the privilege of being able to reserve one. That’s right – Motorola has opened the reservations for the Razr 2022 through JD.com, a popular Chinese retailer. This piece of information was first covered in an article from GSMArena. The reservation page for the Moto Razr 2022 shows the new smartphone in all its glory, with a number of images demonstrating the different “modes” that the foldable form factor allows. The new Razr 2022 will introduce significant improvements to the lineup, including a larger outer screen, longer battery life and great flagship specs.
That is, if the device can actually be started. For reference, the Moto Razr 2022 was set to launch on August 2 along with the Moto X30 Pro. However, the event was canceled last minute and then rescheduled. Let’s hope there won’t be any unforeseen political turmoil this time around (not just for the sake of the Razr 2022, of course).
The reservation page also gives us another important piece of information. It lists the different configurations of the Moto Razr 2022. At the moment there are three. The base model comes with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The more expensive one keeps the 8 GB of RAM, but adds another 128 GB of internal storage (for a total of 256). The top model comes with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage.
Still, this means little to most users at the moment. After all, there’s still no word on whether the Moto Razr 2022 will ever leave China. Given how torturous the Chinese launch appears to be, an international one seems even more difficult, if not impossible.
In any case, it looks like Motorola is trying to compete with Samsung, the undisputed king of foldables, and the Galaxy Z Fold 4 in particular. This is not a battle that can only be won in China. It is a war that must be waged all over the world. This is the only potential global conflict I look forward to.
