Motorola’s Razr is on the way back (again) with a new generation slated for potentially crucial improvements in multiple areas

Motorola sought to build on lingering Razr nostalgia to push the series’ inaugural foldable version, although this world-first did not exactly meet with universal acclaim. Nevertheless, the OEM has just announced that it is not giving up on the renewed, Android-powered line, and will persist with a much-improved third generation.

Motorola ran a successful race to beat Samsung to the title of the world’s first truly consumer-ready clamshell foldable. Nevertheless, the first-gen Razr never really became the modern-day flip phone many tech fans might have hoped for with its rushed design and lackluster software support. Its 5G-capable successor proved little better in either regard, and remains on Android 11 at best to this day.

Its critical reception might have helped explain the total absence of a 3rd-gen Razr in 2021, leaving the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 to take its field alone. However, the Lenovo-owned brand has abruptly announced that it will be back in the clamshell foldable arena soon.

The OEM representative Chen Jin has confirmed that there will be a new Razr soon. This device is now slated to bring improvements in terms of design, performance and UI: 3 main points of detraction in the first 2 foldables.

The executive did not reveal when this device might debut exactly; however, it is more certain the “Razr 3” will, in a contrast to its forebears, see a China-only launch event prior to any release to the rest of the world.

The Motorola Razr 5G is currently priced at US$800 on Amazon

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.
