The Motorola Razr may be even more expensive in Europe than first thought
The new Motorola Razr may launch in Sweden on January 24, 2020. At least, this is what the blog LetsGoDigital claims to have heard from its sources. This alleged leak also states that the foldable phone will cost about 17,920 krona (SEK, or about €1680 (~US$1860)) when it hits what may be its first Europe-region market. This slightly exceeds the last price-related rumor surrounding the cutting-edge Motorola device.
On the other hand, this price may approach the last estimate (€1500, or about $1660) in different European countries. Nevertheless, it continues to be the least attractive aspect of Motorola's strategy for the Razr brand's reboot. Let's just say it's a good thing it is foldable, or it would be a completely untenable ask for what is essentially an otherwise mid-range phone. A recent alternative with the same SoC (the Snapdragon 710) is the OPPO Reno A, which went for about $330 at its launch.
The Razr's other main problem is that is currently running Android 9.0 (Pie), rather than the more up-to-date 10; however, this discrepancy can perhaps be addressed in time. However, it will not address the fact that the other foldable phone being sold in Sweden at present has the Snapdragon 855 processor, 12GB of RAM and costs about 3100 SEK (~$322) more than what is specified in the new leak.
