A new leak may confirm the Motorola Razr 2020 5G's design

Motorola's second-generation foldable is thought to migrate to a 5G SoC rather than the Snapdragon 710 found in its predecessor. Now, a new live image posted to Weibo may confirm the differences in looks between the two. It is by no means a substantial redesign, yet shows some refinements in the newer model.

Motorola sought to lock its niche in the burgeoning foldables trend down early on with the return of its Razr sub-brand. However, many reviewers perceived this device as rushed indeed, particularly with its distinctly low-to-mid-range specs and questionable durability. On the other hand, it did manage to deliver a 6.2-inch POLED flexible display in a clamshell form-factor, which may be carried over to its upcoming second generation.

In fact, this upcoming Razr 2020 5G is believed to be much more of a refresh, packing a Snapdragon 765 processor into a very similar chassis. This was recently underpinned in a leak that purports to show the resulting phone in hands-on images. They are said to originate from an event put on by Lenovo for investors, one of whom proceeded to leak the device on Weibo.

They show a product that does indeed look very like the first foldable Razr on first blush. However, closer inspection shows a slight, novel curve to the secondary display (which is on the "front" of the phone when closed). The inner, main display does indeed also look much the same, albeit a bit cleaner and without the pronounced lip along the top edge.

This view of the "Razr 2020 5G" also indicates it still has a chin, although it has lost the hardware-based fingerprint sensor from the previous iteration. In addition, the hinge appears to have been re-jigged somewhat and sticks further out towards the rear.

The "new Razr" also seems to still have a single camera and an Android 10-based OS. All in all, they match earlier renders posted by Evan Blass to a good degree. The phone that may conform to these images still lacks a launch date at present.

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.
