Motorola cancelled its Moto Razr 2022 and X30 Pro launch event without explanation.
Lenovo-owned brand was scheduled to conduct a launch event today at 11:30am GMT / 7:30am ET. Later on general manager Chen Jin cancelled it.
Jin remarked, “The moto new product introduction slated for 7:30 tonight was cancelled” (via translations software). “We still want to deliver everyone new moto items and be the moto Chinese users like.”
Chen told fans to “pay attention to moto’s official outlets” for updates.
The corporation scrapped the event, which was to take place in China, just hours before kickoff (via Android Authority). Despite multiple teasers before the event, which was to take place in China, the firm has abandoned it (via Android Authority).
Neither the corporation nor the executives disclosed the cause for the cancellation, although it comes amid escalating tensions between China and Taiwan. Android Authority speculates the cancellation is due to escalating geopolitical tensions and Nancy Pelosi’s intentions to visit Taiwan. The Motorola X30 Pro, which was slated to release with the Razr 2022, will also be delayed. Motorola’s X30 Pro boasts a 200 MP camera sensor.
Not to mention that the Razr 2022 was slated to release a full week before its most obvious opponent, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. It was sadly too wonderful to be true.
This also implies that users will have to wait longer for the Motorola X30 Pro, which was slated to launch concurrently with the Razr 2022. The X30 Pro is Motorola’s first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera sensor.
