Moto X30 Pro to be Launched on August 2, 2022

Motorola has now officially set a launch date for the arrival of its next foldable device on August 2nd. The “Dual Flagship” event, which Motorola announced via Chinese social media platform Weibo, is also set to host the launch of the Moto X30 Pro, which will reportedly be the world’s first phone with a 200-megapixel camera.

 

Recently Samsung also confirmed its next launch date of August 10th, which is when we expect the new Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 to come, but Motorola’s new announcement puts the launch of the Motorola Razr in place 3 fixed dates ahead of Samsung by eight days. The caveat is that the launch of Motorola’s dual flagship seems to be exclusive to China for now, while the Korean company’s new foldable devices are expected to launch internationally in several markets from the start : more widespread and affordable, unlike the last ones For both generations of the foldable Razr, Motorola will outfit the Razr 3 with more traditional flagship-level hardware, starting from the mid-range interiors we’ve seen on the 2019 and 2020 models.

 

The main difference is expected to be the move to a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, while the phone will also come with a 6.7-inch 120Hz AMOLED main display, a 3-inch cover display and a 50 MP main camera paired with a 13 MP ultrawide and up to 512 GB of internal storage. Although this spec sheet suggests that Motorola is finally addressing the biggest shortcomings of the current Razr range, it could be a case of too little too late.

 

Samsung’s Z Flip Clamshell Foldable Line is now setting the pace for this particular form factor and based on that Announcement article from Samsung’s Dr. TM Roh, President & Head of MX Business, released on July 21, fans can expect more from the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 brought to the table: high-end performance with increased affordability. The Z Flip 3 was launched at a price of $999, while the next Motorola Razr 3 is expected to be around $1,399 /  US$1,900, despite a hardware rundown, which, while showing an improvement, doesn’t make it the most competitive clamshell over Samsung’s forthcoming Z Flip 4.
