Motorola is preparing to refresh its Razr foldable smartphone line up. Despite not officially announcing anything yet, the cheaper Razr 50 can already be seen on Geekbench sporting an unreleased MediaTek chipset that performs about as well as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 6 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipsets.

The Motorola Razr 50 has been listed on Geekbench, just days after its appearance on TENAA in China. For context, Evan Blass has already revealed what the Razr 40 (curr. $499.99 on Amazon) successor looks like through dozens of official render images. Meanwhile, the TENAA showed hands-on photos of the same device, which we have covered separately.

As for Geekbench, the benchmarking platform refers to the Razr 50 as featuring 'ARM implementer 65 architecture 8 variant 1 part 3393 revision 0', a chipset that is speculated to be the MediaTek Dimensity 7300X. Although Geekbench does not refer to the chipset by its marketing name, it reveals that it has eight CPU cores split into equal clusters clocked at 2 GHz and 2.5 GHz. Unfortunately, other details about the Dimensity 7300X remain unknown for now.

Additionally, Geekbench lists the device as scoring 1,033 in single-core and 2,751 in multi-core tests on Geekbench 6.3. Based on our database, the chipset's single-core score puts it in Qualcomm Snapdragon 7s Gen 2, Samsung Exynos 1380 and MediaTek Dimensity 8050 territory. While those chipsets average more in the same multi-core benchmark, a score of over 2,700 matches the likes of the Snapdragon 6 Gen 1. Moreover, Geekbench reports that the Razr 50 features 8 GB of RAM too, likely its base configuration that is rumoured to retail for $699. Currently, it remains to be seen when Motorola will unveil the Razr 50. Nonetheless, the device will come with Android 14 pre-installed.
