Motorola is one of the players in the market well-known for producing clamshell flip-style foldable phones. It has launched Razr 5G and Razr (2019) so far and is now reported to be working on a third-gen offering. Evan Blass, a well-known tipster, has collaborated with online publication 91Mobiles to share crucial details about the upcoming foldable.
The report features a couple of photos of a device claimed to be the Moto Razr 3 internal testing unit. The device is referred to as Maven internally i.e. its codename. This new foldable is said to come with a design that will be completely different from its predecessors. Blass says it is closer to Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 3 with a "slightly boxier and more squared off" design. The chin has also been removed and the power button will double up as the fingerprint scanner.
The Moto Razr 3 is further reported to feature dual rear cameras featuring a 50-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture. The second sensor will be 13-megapixel which will be a combination of wide-angle and macro. The front camera will be a 32-megapixel sensor housed on the inner display punch-hole.
The choice of processor is said to be Qualcomm's Snap 8 Gen 1 which is a flagship chip. Blass says Motorola also had plans for a variant powered by the Snap 8 Gen 1+ processor but as the release has been delayed, it is unknown what the company would do with that variant. There will be multiple configuration options featuring up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of onboard storage.
The Razr 3 is said to make its debut first in China around July-end or early August. There will be a global release as well but the timeline has not been specified yet. The color options will be Tranquil Blue and Quartz Black.
