Samsung is on track to launch its latest top-end foldable devices during the major Unpacked event of today (August 10, 2022). That may be why Motorola has chosen to go ahead and unveil a crucial detail on its potential contender the Moto Razr 2022. Considering the new clamshell's specs, the starting price in question has the potential to blow its Flip4 rival out of the water.

Motorola has settled on August 11, 2022 (also known as tomorrow) as the date on which its ultra-premium Moto X30 Pro and Razr 2022 will be formally introduced to their (hopefully) initial market of China. The OEM patently intends to redeem many shortcoming of the latter's predecessors with true flagship specs that might also help with the fact that Samsung and Xiaomi also intend to unleash upgraded foldable devices at around the same time.

Then again, switching to this option in premium handset technology is not, of course, projected to come cheap, particularly in 2022. However, Motorola has just challenged this idea with a price reveal for its third-gen foldable that might come as a surprise to many, and not an unpleasant one.

The OEM has indicated that it intends to start the foldable at 5,999 yuan (~US$888), whereas the looming Galaxy Flip4 alternative is projected to do so at its predecessor's 7,599 yuan (~US$1,125), if not more. Then again, Motorola's competitive new offer probably applies to the Razr 2022's entry-level 8GB RAM model, whereas it is slated to offer 12 or even 18GB options that might get much more expensive.

Nevertheless, the new tier might prove encouraging to some foldable-curious consumers in Motorola's native country - even if it fails to translate worldwide. Now, however, the ball is now in Xiaomi's court. as it may also be equipped to launch the also-imminent Mix Fold 2 at a more or less reasonable cost.
