The Motorola Razr 2022 launched in China back in August but is yet to make its way to Western markets. A few weeks leaked images suggested that an expansion in availability is imminent and now the price may have leaked as well.
The Razr 2022 will be €1,200+ in Europe, according to leakster Roland Quandt. That’s pretty steep – the base variant in China (8/128GB) is CNY 6,000 (€865) while the top model (12/512GB) is CNY 7,300 (€1,050). Motorola may skip the lowest tier variant for the west, so this price tag may actually apply to the 8/256GB model (CNY 6,500 or €940 after a direct currency conversion).
For comparison, a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 starts at €1,100 (8/128GB) and tops out at €1,280 (8/512GB). The Huawei P50 Pocket had an MSRP of €1,400-1,600 depending on the country, but that is an older model from last year (and out of stock in Europe, seemingly).
The Moto Razr 2022 is much more capable than its predecessors with a proper flagship chipset (Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the 2019 model had a Snapdragon 710) and much better cameras. Not to mention its large 6.7” 144Hz P-OLED display on the inside and modernized design without the nostalgic chin.
Even so it might prove to be a tough sell. We still have no indication of when Motorola wants to launch the Razr 2022 in Europe (and presumably North America), but it should be soon.
