The phone will also have a redesigned interface and an improved design, indicating that Motorola will address the previous generation’s numerous software issues. Other than that, little is known about the Razr 3’s specifications as of this time. However, given the tight competition in the foldable race, Motorola would be wise to improve the Razr’s battery life in the next iteration since it’s one of the major drawbacks in the Razr 5G and the first-generation model from 2019.
The Motorola Razr 5G, which was released last year, will be replaced in 2022. Chen Jin, an IT manager at Motorola’s parent company Lenovo, confirmed this on his Weibo profile. The third-generation Motorola Razr will be a significant improvement over its predecessor (via Android Authority). The next Razr 3 will, according to Chen, have a more advanced processor. He didn’t say what chipset he was talking about, although it might be more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G that powers the Razr 5G. Given the latest information, it’s tough to rule out the likelihood that Motorola’s next foldable phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 8 series chipset. Apart from that, the Motorola Edge X30 is powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, so a foldable Motorola handset with the same high-end chipset isn’t out of the question.
Because of those flaws, Motorola’s Razr lineup has already fallen behind the competition, currently dominated by the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Let’s hope Motorola’s next answer to the best foldable phones addresses them. Chen also revealed that the Razr 3 will first be available in China, though no specific date has been set.
