a problem with flagship Android phones released earlier this year are prone to overheating, presumably because they feature chips based on Samsung’s 4nm manufacturing process. Hopefully this won’t be a problem on phones that have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip. The Motorola Razr 3 could be one of the first phones to be powered by the SoC.
The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 is apparently manufactured on TSMC’s 4nm process and promises 10 percent better CPU performance, 10 percent faster graphics, and up to 30 percent better power efficiency than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
We’ve heard that Motorola is gearing up to launch a successor to its foldable phone for 2020 and now the manufacturer has more or less confirmed that. First spotted by Notebook Check
Motorola’s general manager Shen Jin posted a photo on China’s social networking site Weibo

That would be a big deal, as OG Razr and Razr 5G came with mid-tier chips despite their high prices. The Razr 3 may retain the $1,399.99 price of its predecessor, but the upgrades may justify that to some degree.
First off, the Razr 3 is rumored to be shedding the big bezels and embracing a more Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 like design. Both indoor and outdoor screens are: is expected to grow from 6.2 inches to 6.7 inches and 2.7 inches to 3 inches, respectively.
The single-sensor rear camera array is being upgraded to a dual-camera setup with a 50MP main snapper and a 13MP hybrid wide-angle and macro unit. The higher-resolution 32MP front camera will reportedly be housed in a cutout rather than a notch.
Motorola’s next foldable phone is rumored to be released in China in late July or early August. It will come to international markets at a later date.
