Next-generation Motorola Razr leaks in hands-on pictures as specifications emerge with talk of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus models
Evan Blass has leaked hands-on photos of a new Motorola Razr, codenamed Maven. Billed as a third-generation foldable Razr, it is unclear how Motorola will market the handset. Potentially, Motorola could sell the handset as the Motorola Razr 2, considering that it has only announced the Razr and Razr 5G so far. However, Motorola may offer Maven as the Razr 3, if it follows Samsung's lead with the Galaxy Z Flip3.
Either way, Maven contains several design changes from the Razr 5G. For example, Motorola has equipped the handset with two external cameras, mimicking the Galaxy Z Flip3. Additionally, the handset has no large front chin, a staple of the Razr since its introduction in 2004 with the Razr V3. The size of the device's exterior display remains unknown at this stage, though.
Purportedly, Maven features a 50 MP primary camera (f/1.8), a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor that can take macro shots, and a 32 MP front-facing camera that sits beneath a centred-punch hole. Blass has not provided many details about Maven's foldable display, other than it has an FHD+ resolution. Seemingly, the handset builds on the Razr 5G's hinge system, too.
Blass adds that the third-generation foldable Razr will arrive in late July or early August, starting in China. Reportedly, a global launch is planned for after its Chinese debut, mirroring the Edge 30 Pro's release schedule. Blass claims that Motorola intends to release Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus versions of the new Razr, plus up to 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. Reputedly, Qualcomm has delayed the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, so it remains to be seen whether this will impact Motorola at all.
