- Motorola’s Foldable Razr 3rd generation has been leaked with its twin camera setup, ahead of its expected summer release.
- This week, we got our first glimpse at Motorola’s foldable smartphone, “Maven.”
- In the product specifications, “Maven” is classified as a “top-of-the-line” product.
- Seems that supply issues on the newer, undisclosed processor may jeopardise plans for two versions of the smartphone, one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU and the other with the future “Plus” variant.
- Recent reports, the “Motorola Razr 3” will be available in China in July or August of this year.
The Galaxy Z Fold series of foldable smartphones has been the most popular, while the flip phone has been the most popular in terms of sales volume. Motorola already acknowledged the existence of a “Motorola Razr 3” foldable, and now we have our first glimpse at “Maven”, according to a new rumour.
According to Evan Blass through 91Mobiles, the “Motorola Maven” seen below is the brand’s next foldable flip phone. So that people don’t get confused, we’ve been calling it the “Razr 3” until the official name comes out.
At first glance, the “Motorola Razr 3” seems to have a lot more in common with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 than we expected. We’ve seen the “hump” at the bottom of Motorola devices replaced with something a little less prominent. In this picture, it’s hard to see the outside display, but based on where the display seems to rest, it seems to be bigger than what Samsung uses.
The camera array seems to be one of the most significant modifications. Motorola’s “Razr 3” includes three sensors, as opposed to the single sensor on the previous two Razr versions. Like the Galaxy Z Flip 3, they are tucked away in the corner of the design. There is a 50MP main sensor supported by an ultrawide 13MP camera and a 32MP selfie camera included inside the phone. FHD+ maintains the screen resolution.
According to the specifications, “Maven” is a “top-of-the-line” product. Although it seems that plans for two versions of the smartphone, one with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU and the other with the future “Plus” edition, may be hampered by supply delays on the newer, yet unnamed chip. Depending on the model, the RAM is either 8GB or 12GB and the storage is either 256GB or 512GB.
According to reports, the “Motorola Razr 3” is expected to arrive sometime this summer, with the first batch of units heading to China in July or August. “Tranquil Blue” and “Quart Black” seem to be the official launch colours.
It’s worth noting that Motorola has already introduced two additional foldable before this one. Reviving the style of the iconic Razr flip phone was the primary selling point for Razr’s original model, which debuted in 2019. Hardware problems and sluggish software upgrades plagued hands-on evaluations, though, such that they were generally unfavourable. Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and the high price tag of the Razr 5G led to the Razr 5G’s lack of success, which was a refinement of that initial smartphone.
