Motorola has implicitly confirmed that its third foldable phone, which we assume is the Razr 3 is on the way and will be powered by the souped-up version of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip announced a few days ago. Footage of the phone first leaked earlier this month and the same leaker is now back with a short video clip of the device.
Evan Blass posted a GIF showing both the front of the phone and the cover screen. Gone are the chunky bezels and notches and the phone now has a refined inner display with a punch hole in the center. Per One leak, the size of the main screen has been increased from 6.2 inches to 6.7 inches.
Likewise, the cover display has grown from 2.7 inches to 3 inches. The phone now has a monochromatic look and the single-camera array has been replaced by a dual-sensor array, and its position has been shifted from the center to the right. The phone is rumored to have a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP hybrid wide-angle and macro sensor. The front camera has been upgraded to 32MP.
Like its predecessor, the Razr 3 folds flat and the screen has no creases. The device, codenamed Maven, has boxier, square edges, giving it a sleek look.
Rumor has it that the fingerprint sensor will be moved from the back to the power button. The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip is paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
In addition to the Quartz Black variant shown in the video, the Razr 3 will reportedly also come in a Tranquil Blue option. The device is expected to have a premium price tag. Or will this prevent it from becoming a viable competitor to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which will succeed the? Most popular foldable smartphone of 2021, the Flip 3, remains to be seen.
The Razr 3 will be released for the first time in China sometime during July/August and will hit international markets later in 2022.
