Although the original date was set for August 2nd, Motorola canceled the event rather unexpectedly, most likely due to rising tensions between China and Taiwan/US.
The cancellation was followed up by a new teaser of the Moto Razr 2022, with August 11th as the date on the cover screen. Now, the Chinese part of the company has confirmed the new date, and it will be a big one, featuring both the new Razr 2022, Moto X30 Pro, Moto S30 Pro, and most likely the new Lenovo Legion flagship smartphone, the Legion Y70.
Motorola has also revealed most of the specifications for some of these phones. The Razr 2022 got a slight design change, ditching the recognizable bottom chin in favor of a larger display, so it will get a 6.7-inch inner display with a 10-bit 144Hz panel, and HDR10+ support, while the external display is a 2.7-inch one that will show all the notifications, custom widgets, and for selfies with the main camera.
The main camera system is a dual module one with a 50-megapixel 1/1.55-inch main sensor with 1.0µm pixels and a 13-megapixel ultrawide one. The front camera is a 32-megapixel one.
As expected, Motorola is going for a flagship experience, equipping the Razr 2022 with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and pairing it with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of internal storage.
The Moto X30 Pro will get a curved 6.7-inch screen with a 10-bit HDR10+ 144Hz panel, and powered by the same Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 SoC. It will come in 8GB/128GB, 12GB/256GB, and 12GB/512GB configurations. The main camera is a triple-module one with the 200-megapixel HP1 main sensor, backed up by a 50-megapixel ultrawide one and a 12-megapixel telephoto one. The front camera features a 60-megapixel sensor with 4-in-1 binning.
The Moto X30 Pro will get a 125W GaN charger and support 50W wireless charging as well.
Motorola is not leaving a lot of information for its August 11th event, so hopefully, it has left a few surprises.
