Although the Motorola Razr 2022 was introduced in China back in August, it has not yet reached Western markets. A few weeks ago, images leaked online suggested that the availability would soon increase, and now the price may have done the same.
According to leaker Roland Quandt, the Razr 2022 will cost more than €1,200 in Europe. That’s quite a price difference; in China, the entry-level model (8/128GB) costs CNY 6,000 (€865), while the top-end model (12/512GB) costs CNY 7,300 (€1,050). For western markets, Motorola might forego the entry-level model, so the price listed here may actually apply to the 8/256GB model (CNY 6,500 or €940 after direct currency conversion).
A Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 starts at €1,100 (8/128GB) and costs €1,280 (8/512GB) as a point of comparison. The Huawei P50 Pocket was an older model from last year with an MSRP ranging from €1,400 to €1,600 depending on the nation (and it appears to be out of stock in Europe).
With a proper flagship chipset (Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1; the 2019 model had a Snapdragon 710) and much better cameras, the Moto Razr 2022 is much more capable than its forerunners. Not to mention the interior’s sizable 6.7″ 144Hz P-OLED display and the updated look without the retro chin.
Even so, it might be difficult to sell. Although we still don’t know when Motorola plans to introduce the Razr 2022 in Europe (and likely North America), it should happen soon.
