Motorola Razr is the newest foldable smartphone in the market after Samsung released its Z Flip 4 this week. The South Korean tech giant hopes to impress the customers with its newly-launched handset, but it seems that the Chinese phone maker has the upper hand this time.

The Motorola Razr 2022 could be the newest answer for Samsung Z Flip 4.
Finally, Motorola has unveiled its own foldable handheld that could compete with Samsung. Aside from a powerful chipset, the Razr 2022 sports a bigger display and bi-camera setup, per GSM Arena.
This 6.7-inch foldable boasts an OLED screen with a 2.7-inc external cover. It has a 144Hz refresh rate which is enough to beat Samsung’s Z Flip 4 when it comes to screen features.
Relying on Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+Gen 1 SoC, the Moto Razr 2022 offers different variants to choose from. You can select 8GB or a 12GB RAM model, which has either 128,256 or 512GB of storage.
Furthermore, the said smartphone runs Android 12. Its stylish clamshell design can easily hook you up along with its 50/13MP front shooter.
Speaking of its camera, you can enjoy taking selfies with its 32 MP selfie camera. This is better compared to the Samsung Z Flip 4’s 10MP selfie shooter and a pair of 12MP outer cameras.
What’s more impressive about this new Motorola phone is how the company steps up to upgrade its chip. The last two Razr handsets used Snapdragon 7 chipsets, but this one relies on the 8th edition SoC.
Aside from that, the Razr 2022 comes with Dolby Atmos support, MyUI 4.0 interface, and RAW shooting support.
What’s the Catch Behind Motorola Razr 2022
On paper, this year’s Moto Razr can surpass Samsung Z Flip 4 in almost all aspects. However, some users might overlook its sole flaw at the moment since it’s not all about the specs and its features.
According to Mashable, the Chinese brand has not yet announced its plans to launch the newest foldable phone worldwide. As of writing, this model is exclusively available in China.
It would be great if Motorola will expand its reach in the market. In this way, many customers will be encouraged to test out how it will fare outside its country of origin.
Regarding its price, the Motorola Razr 2022 is currently priced at CNY 5,999 or $890 up to CNY 7,299 ($1,083). Of course, the pricing will depend on the variant that you select.
Another Motorola handset also came out during the event. The Motorola X30 Pro is another phone equipped with Snapdragon 8+ chip. It supports 125W wired fast charging capability. Its main selling point is its 200MP main camera which is the most sought specification among mobile photographers.
Right now, it’s available in China at CNY 3,6999 or $549.
