The Motorola Razr 5G, which debuted last year, will finally have its successor in 2022. This was confirmed by Chen Jin, CIO of Motorola’s parent company, Lenovo, via his Weibo profile.
Motorola’s third generation Razr will be a huge upgrade over its predecessor (via Android Authority). According to Chen, the next Razr 3 will have a more advanced processor. He didn’t specify which chipset was involved, but it could be something more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, which powers the Razr 5G.
In light of the latest revelations, it’s hard to rule out the possibility that Motorola will use a Snapdragon 8 series processor for its next foldable phone. Other than that, the Motorola Edge X30 is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, so a Motorola foldable device powered by the same high-end chipset wouldn’t come as a surprise.
The phone will also have a redesigned interface and an improved design, which indicates that Motorola will solve many of the previous generation’s software issues. Other than that, not much is known about the specifications of the Razr 3.
However, given the stiff competition in the foldable race, it would be wise to improve Razr’s battery life in the next iteration, as this is one of the major drawbacks of the Razr 5G and the 2019 first generation model.
Because of these shortcomings, Motorola’s Razr line has already lagged behind the competition, which is currently dominated by the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. We hope Motorola’s next response to the best foldable phones will solve them.
Chen also revealed that the Razr 3 will be available for the first time in China, although no specific date has been set.
