We now have our first glimpse at what appears to be a third-generation Motorola Razr testing model, thanks to article from Evan Blass (via 91Mobiles). For macro and ultra-wide images, a 13MP camera sits alongside a 50MP f/1.8 primary sensor on the back of the Maven.
That “chin,” or lip that extended outward in prior versions of the gadget, appears to have been removed from this version of the device when it is entirely closed. Modern re-creations of the device’s original design differ in that it seems to fold over on itself to form a square when closed.
According to Blass, the fingerprint sensor has been relocated to the power button, which is anticipated to be located on the side of the device. There were two versions of Motorola’s 5G-enabled Razr: one with a fingerprint sensor on its chin and one with a sensor on the back.
According to Blass, the Razr 3 will have a hole-punch 32MP selfie camera and an FHD+ inner foldable display. 91Mobiles has a picture of the device’s internal screen.) ‘ This phone is expected to include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 system-on-a-chip (SoC) and a “Plus” version, which is expected to have an updated, but yet to be determined, chip. In terms of memory and storage, we should expect up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB.
In the face of Samsung’s flagship foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Motorola appears to be ramping up with a boxier design and two camera sensors. When it came to the first two Razr reboots, the 2019 model wasn’t particularly stunning; it cost $1,499 and had a number of issues, including an uneven screen, noisy hinge, and an underpowered camera. There wasn’t much of a difference between Motorola’s second generation and the addition of 5G.
The third generation Razr is expected to ship in China in July or August, in line with a statement by a Lenovo executive in December (Lenovo purchased the mobile brand in 2014). In terms of a release date outside of China, we don’t have any information at this time. Motorola declined to respond when contacted by The Verge for a response.
