Motorola will first present its bid for folding phones in 2022.
The foldable phone market kicks off strongly in the second half of this year. If Samsung plans to renew its Galaxy Z on August 10, Motorola will first show off its renewed Moto Razr on August 2.
Motorola will hold the event for the Chinese market, where it will also present its high-end Moto X30 Pro , which, according to rumors, would debut a 200-megapixel sensor.
Motorola will seek to gain ground
Motorola revived its remembered Razr as a phone with a folding screen, but it has been overtaken by Samsung ‘s offer , which has two folding ones in its catalog: the “toad” Z Flip and the Z Fold cell phone/tablet .
The Motorola Razr 2022 is expected to have the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ chip , to offer the best power available to date in Android phones.
At least in Motorola ‘s official teaser , we got a glimpse of a much larger external display.
Samsung will also show its weapons
Samsung remains the leader in folding phones . The Korean company has reported the shipment of 10 million units of this type in 2021.
“We are getting to the point where these foldable devices are going mainstream and taking over the general smartphone market. We saw the opportunity not only to design a new form, but also to create new experiences that had never been possible before with a smartphone. Overcoming many technological obstacles, we successfully introduced the first ever foldable smartphone in 2019 and have changed the future,” said TM Roh, current president and head of Mobile Communications at Samsung Electronics , after revealing the figures.
The Unpacked scheduled for August 10 will showcase what’s new from Samsung in its Z lineup, showcasing a new generation of the Galaxy Z Flip and the Galaxy Z Fold .
Samsung ‘s new foldables are expected to go on sale from August 26. This, of course, varies between markets.
