The Chinese telecomms regulator 3C has reportedly certified a new Motorola device called the XT2071-4. This model number is rumored to correspond to the 2nd-generation foldable Razr. This new clamshell is thought to have the same screen size as its predecessor, although it may have an updated 5G SoC.

3C has reportedly approved the Motorola XT2071-4 - or, according to some new rumors, the Razr 2020. Should this be proven valid, the device would be the OEM's 2nd-gen foldable phone. However, it may not deviate much from its predecessor.

The latest leaks concerning this device suggest that it will have a very similar P-OLED main display as the first foldable Razr. Its main camera may, again, be a single shooter, but could also be a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor this time.

However, its secondary (or Quick View) screen, which is visible when the phone is closed, may measure 2.7 inches diagonally, which may strike some as a downgrade compared to the 2019 model. It is also projected to run the same build of Android 10 found on Motorola's existing clamshell and to charge at an 18-watt (W) rate.

Then again, the "new Razr" is also touted to rock the Snapdragon 765, which may be an improvement on the original. Furthermore, it may make this potential foldable a 5G device, and may thus be called the Razr 5G should it launch soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
