Technology is ever changing and every month or so we come up with advances to the already intelligent gadget that we left with amazement and awe. Here are the tech launches for the month of August.
Motorola Razr 2022
Motorola is set to launch a new smartphone in China on August 2. It’s none other than the long-rumoured Razr foldable smartphone that was reportedly a commercial failure when it first came out. The new 2022 Razr model is a game-changer with a new design and better specifications. The Moto Razr 2022 will be the first foldable phone to come with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor and will roughly be priced at around EUR 1,149 (Rs 94,000).

The OEM has not mentioned any new or updated health-tracking attributes for the Watch 3, although it is now touted to “delight” consumers with its improved performance from next month onward.
