Razr 3: Motorola teases the upcoming foldable flagship in terms of potential UI and gaming upgrades
Motorola is gearing up to debut a new top-end smartphone with at least 1 ground-breaking feature on its launch. However, the OEM also seems to want to keep its foldable alternative on the map right alongside it with specs and performance that might challenge those of its candy-bar counterparts more than ever before.
The "Razr 3" is naturally touted to rival the Moto X30 Pro based primarily on the unique selling point of its 6.7-inch flexible OLED main display. However, the 2 phones are also currently thought to launch with the same top-end Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC (which would be a first for the Razr).
Furthermore, it is now touted to get even closer to its non-foldable counterparts than ever in 2022. Motorola China's general manager, Chen Jin, has taken to Weibo to assert that the OEM's foldable-making technology has advanced enough to allow it to cram X-axis linear haptics and dual stereo speakers into the upcoming clamshell "at all costs".
Those components would indeed represent a substantial improvement on the original Razr build (on paper, at least) and might, in concert with the device's rumored flagship platform, provide an upgraded gaming experience on the purported foldable.
In other Razr 3 news, Chen Jin has also revealed a newly-developed lockscreen for the device, implying in the process that the external screen for which the element is intended is large enough to accommodate a circular watch-face-sized image.
This may or may not be a huge deal, considering the preceding Razr might have done the same, but might indicate that Motorola could be putting more work into its version of Android for foldables this time around: something that might prove welcome news for Razr fans in the near future.
