We're sure you've heard of leaked smartphone images, release dates, and launch prices, but Motorola
might be trying to start a new trend by "leaking" its own holiday deals on everything from the ultra-affordable Moto E (2020), E6, and G Fast to the foldable Razr (2019) and Razr (2020).
Obviously, this is an official marketing strategy rather than an actual, unauthorized leak, and although the company doesn't exactly spell it out for us, we're fairly confident the "leak sale" valid until Sunday, November 15 will return largely unchanged both on or around Black Friday
in a couple of weeks and on or around Christmas next month.
The awesome thing about this fresh batch of Motorola handset promotions is that they're currently available pretty much everywhere across the nation, from Amazon to Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and of course, the smartphone manufacturer's own official US e-store.
One of the most exciting devices on sale this (extended) holiday season is undoubtedly the 5G-enabled Razr
flip phone with Android 10, despite its very obvious shortcomings
and glaring flaws. Typically priced at an arguably excessive 1400 bucks, the incredibly versatile and relatively compact Snapdragon 765 mid-ranger can be purchased at the time of this writing at a huge $400 discount in an unlocked variant compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
Curiously enough, the vastly inferior 4G LTE-only Motorola Razr (2019)
for Verizon also costs $999.99 right now, which is by no means a good deal. On the bright side, bargain hunters should be happy to see all the latest members of the Moto G family available stateside score decent discounts of between $50 (the G Fast
) and $100 (the G Stylus
If you don't have a problem spending an extra hundred bucks or two, the Motorola One Zoom, One Fusion+
, and the Motorola Edge
could well satisfy your thirst for a little additional processing power or imaging prowess.
Of course, Android power users should consider nothing but the Verizon-exclusive Motorola Edge+
, which packs a state-of-the-art Snapdragon 865 SoC and currently goes for $699.99
instead of its $999.99 list price.
At the other end of the spectrum, the entry-level Moto E (2020)
and Moto E6
are up for grabs ahead of Black Friday at $30 and $50 off their already ultra-low regular prices.
