Rumor | Motorola Razr Plus 2023 gears up for international launch with fast Wi-Fi and more battery than previously thought
The Razr 22 is the only foldable smartphone on the market with a class-leading 144Hz main display driven by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor - nevertheless, Motorola reportedly intends to save the inaugural upgrade to a "Plus" moniker for its 2023 successor.
That may or may not have something to do with the rumors of an even larger cover display in the allegedly upcoming generation, which might also turn the so-called Razr+ 2023's rear cameras into the world's biggest punch-holes on their launch.
Now, the technically third-gen device has reportedly hit the FCC, in a leak that also now hints at Wi-Fi 6 (or 6E), Bluetooth and 5G bands that differ from market to market in the upcoming clamshell foldable. It also apparently has something to say about the supposed Razr+ battery controversy.
Despite its new name, the upcoming device has been linked to a weedy typical capacity - however, the FCC has reportedly detected the presence of a secondary 790mAh battery that adds up to a grand total of 3,640mAh in the new device
Then again, that would still represent a mild improvement over the 3,500mAh Razr 22. On that note, its supposedly impending replacement (or "Motorola XT2321-1" for the US market) is also now slated to launch with 33W charging, an underwhelming potential upgrade over the 30W max rate of the previous generation.
