It was the launch of Motorola Razr 2022 and X30 Pro One of the most anticipated launch events of 2022. Lenovo-backed Motorola also exaggerated the event a lot via social media and the Chinese press. However, the tech company canceled the launch event at the last minute and postponed the launch of the devices indefinitely.
General manager of Motorola and Lenovo mobile Chen Jin announced on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, “I regret to inform you that the launch of Moto’s new product scheduled for 7:30 PM (China Standard Time) has been canceled tonight for some reason.” He also added: “We still sincerely hope to introduce Moto’s new products to everyone, and it is still the Moto that Chinese users love.”
Motorola announced the Moto Razr 2022 and Moto X30 Pro launch event on August 2 in July this year. The tentative launch date of Motorola Razr 2022 was significant for Motorola.
Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 at the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 10. Motorola planned to reduce the price of the Galaxy Foldable devices, by pricing its devices lower than Samsung, and more importantly, by launching its devices a week earlier than Samsung.
Samsung has dominated the foldable phone market, with its efforts generally delivering well-designed products with high specs. The Galaxy Z Flip 3, in particular, benefited from a lower price that made it the first foldable device available for under $1,000. On the other hand, Motorola earlier relied on nostalgia for the older Moto Razr series. However, nostalgia was not enough to make people overlook its high price and average specifications.
Although Motorola did not disclose the reason for the cancellation of the event, industry experts and Chinese journalists believe That Nancy PelosiThe Speaker of the US House of Representatives visited Taiwan and the ensuing escalation of tensions between them Taiwan and China It may be a major reason.
Taiwan remains a major industrial and manufacturing hub for a number of technology companies. The rising tensions between China and Taiwan will certainly affect the movement of components between the two countries.
Motorola certainly had quite a few devices with itself that could have lasted a few days with their release and sale, before having to rely on newly manufactured devices. This is just a standard practice that all major tech companies follow.
For this reason, it would not be wrong to think that the launch event was canceled for political reasons, perhaps under the influence of the Chinese communist state. If this is indeed the case, this does not bode well for a number of tech companies.
For example, OnePlus is set to launch two new devices Worldwide on August 3. The main launch event will take place in China and New York. There is a very good possibility that the launch event will be cancelled.
Meanwhile, Motorola has not released a statement on when it will launch the Moto Razr 2022 and Moto X30 Pro.
