Samsung Won’t be Sleeping Much Over the Motorola Razr 50 Ultra Price Leak

Following a barrage of leaks over the past month, the Motorola Razr 50 Ultra is almost ready for release. It is anticipated to launch sometime in June 2024, following the Moto Razr 40 Ultra’s launch schedule. However, Samsung might be relieved by the most recent disclosures.

DealInTech reports that the Motorola Razr 50 Ultra will retail for €1,200, or roughly £1,032. Remember that this is a good loadout because the pricing is reportedly for the 12GB model with 512GB of storage. Additionally, it costs roughly the same as the Moto Razr 40 Ultra at launch—though that was for 8/256GB.

Motorola’s decision to release this phone at a price point similar to the previous generation makes sense, but you should proceed cautiously when it comes to the loadout because it appears to have a lot of storage as standard.

Motorola offers the Razr 40 in two variants; the entry-level device drops the Ultra moniker and has more mid-range specifications. With a launch price of £799 in the UK, the Razr 40 is a far more cost-effective folding phone option.

While the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 is currently the greatest folding phone available, Motorola still poses a significant threat to Samsung in this market. The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra boasted the best cover display.

The 512GB model of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 costs £949, while the 256GB model is available for as little as £849. The Galaxy Z Flip 5 still maintains a cost edge over Motorola, even if the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is expected to replace it in July 2024.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip that powered the Moto Razr 40 Ultra offers plenty of room for a hardware update to increase power, though thermal management will need to be taken into account to maintain competitive performance.

This could indicate a number of internal adjustments to better control the temperature, with the 6.9-inch internal display and the 3.6-inch external screens probably staying put. Flip phones typically have smaller batteries than standard candybar devices, while the prior model’s 3800mAh capacity isn’t very large.

There are still a lot of exciting things to come: the selection of flip phones is still small, and it still seems like Motorola and Samsung are in it for the win.
