Update: Launched, leaks confirmed | The Motorola Razr 2020 5G has a full specs leak and an unboxing ahead of its official launch
Update: Motorola has now made the Razr 2020 5G official via its various online channels. Its leaks are spot-on, as it happens, down to the 2800mAh battery - which the OEM describes as "all-day" (somehow). It will be made available in "fall 2020", for US$1399. Interested consumers can register for pre-order updates on motorola-mall.com.
Original Article: Motorola is slated to launch a foldable Razr phone at 23:00 CET today (September 9, 2020). However, it is not a true second-gen product, but rather a refresh of the original 2020 device with the Snapdragon 765G and a potentially enhanced design. This is in accordance with its leaks thus far, at least.
The latest of these corroborates this detail, and purports to fill the rest of them in as well. WinFuture now asserts that it will be an 8GB RAM device with 256GB of non-expandable storage. As with its quasi-predecessor, it has a single camera that can be used for selfies in closed mode or main-sensor functions in its unfolded mode. However, it is to be 48MP this time.
The Motorola Razr 2020 5G is also now said to have a 6.2-inch 2142 x 876 POLED inner screen with a 21:9 aspect-ratio. Its external "Quick View" screen may be a 2.6-inch "gOLED" 600 x 800 panel. It will come with Motorola's expanded software feature set for this aspect of the Razr 2020, as it will have its specialized build of Android 10 out of the box.
Roland Quandt also claims that the Motorola Razr 2020 5G will be IPX8-rated, and have a 2800mAh battery (this may be relatively meagre for its new connectivity). Its USB type C charging is also set at a relatively low 15 watt charging rate.
Thus far, Motorola has handed units of this phone to vloggers such as Unbox Therapy and MKBHD, who appear to confirm most of these specs, and also reveal the refreshed foldable's colorways: Blush Gold, Polished Graphite or Liquid Mercury. The device's fingerprint sensor has also migrated from its front chin into a logo on the lower half of the rear of the phone.
As to its price, well, it is yet again a good thing it is has a flexible display, or current projections of €1499 (or US$1399) for its decidedly mid-range properties would be completely unbelievable. Full reviews may help determine whether they can be rationalized this time or not.
