New Motorola Razr 2022 teaser highlights the possibilities of its secondary display
Motorola will unveil the Razr 2022 on August 2, albeit perhaps only in China. Although Motorola is expected to sell the Razr 2022 globally, the handset could remain a Chinese exclusive for a few months. As we have discussed previously, the Razr 2022 will launch with a revised design compared to the Razr 5G and one that resembles the Galaxy Z Flip3 in many areas. However, the Razr 2022 will have a larger secondary display than the Galaxy Z Flip3 or Galaxy Z Flip4, the capabilities of which Motorola has teased on Chinese social media.
So far, the company has shared a photo and a short video, in which it highlights various use cases. For example, you will still be able to take selfies with the Razr 2022 closed by using the secondary display as a viewfinder. For reference, the Razr 2022 is rumoured to feature 50 MP primary and 13 MP ultra-wide-angle cameras on its outside, effectively making it a more versatile selfie shooter than most smartphones. Predictably, the secondary display can show incoming notifications, as well as showing music app widgets.
Additionally, it appears possible to play some games on the secondary display, although it is unclear which will work even with the device's Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset. Moreover, Motorola implies that you can use the secondary display for turn-by-turn navigation, plus as a calculator, stopwatch, a voice recorder or a way to view upcoming calendar events. Allegedly, the secondary display will span 3-inches across, compared to the device's 6.7-inch foldable display. Furthermore, the smartphone should feature up to 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Even entry-level models may not come cheap though, with rumoured pricing putting the Razr 2022 at €1,149, reputedly making it more expensive than the Galaxy Z Flip4.
