Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 has competition: Motor Razr 2022 debuts in China with flagship internals and an excellent price
Motorola has announced the new Moto Razr 2022 with top-of-the-line internals and design tweaks meant to make the Razr 2022 look and feel more modern. For starters, the phone doesn’t have the characteristic chin of its predecessor. Motorola has opted to go with a conventional-looking screen. The hinge is also thinner and more robust. As a result, the Razr 2022 now closes almost flat.
Talking about the screen, the Razr 2022 has thinner bezels around a matte 144 Hz OLED panel with a resolution of 2400x1080. Motorola has increased the display size from 6.2 inches to 6.7 inches, matching the diagonal of the Galaxy Z Flip4. The 2.7 inch-panel on the outside has also seen some updates with new ticks and features like a flex mode. With a resolution of 800x573, the display is plenty sharp.
The phone comes equipped with the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, 8/12 GB of RAM, and 128/256/512 GB of storage. Motorola has definitely heard some fan feedback in terms of battery life. The Razr 2022 packs a 3500 mAh battery, up from the 2800 mAh unit of the 2020 Razr 5G.
Motorola has outfitted the Razr 2022 with a new camera setup. There are two shooters (a 50 MP wide with OIS and a 13 MP ultra-wide) on the back and a single 32 MP snapper on the front.
Sadly, Motorola has only launched the Moto Razr 2022 in China without any indication of a global release any time soon. When, and if, it does make it outside, it will be a lot cheaper than its predecessor which retailed for US$1,399 upon release. The Razr 2022 starts at CNY 5,999 (about US$900), US$100 cheaper than the Galaxy Z Flip4.
