The specs largely line up with XDA‘s earlier leak, so which means 256GB of storage, a 6.2-inch principal display screen, a 48MP major digital camera, and Android 10. Blass additionally claims that the cellphone has a twin digital camera setup and a 20MP secondary digital camera. It’s unclear if the “secondary digital camera” refers back to the second rear digital camera (as you’d count on) or the selfie digital camera, which has beforehand been pegged at 20MP too.
Otherwise, the leaker provides that the cellphone has 5G (the chipset wasn’t disclosed this time) and isn’t waterproof. The latter wouldn’t be a shock, as different foldables aren’t water-resistant. It’s additionally fascinating to notice that this new spec sheet calls it the Motorola Razr 5G reasonably than Razr 2. I suppose we’ll have to attend for extra leaks or Motorola’s eventual launch to get the ultimate title.
Original article, May 26 2020 (2:38AM ET): We beforehand reported that Motorola will launch a second foldable cellphone a while round September this yr. Now, of us over at XDA Developers have managed to supply details about its specs.
Motorola has already confirmed that the upcoming foldable is the second iteration of the 2019 Motorola Razr, so a spec improve is of course anticipated. According to XDA’s sources, it’s an enormous one.
The revamped clamshell will reportedly get with the occasions and have a Snapdragon 765 5G chipset. The new Moto Razr can be anticipated to convey extra RAM, storage, and battery capability. As per XDA’s sources, it’ll include 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, and a barely bigger 2,845mAh battery.

The digital camera setup is claimed to incorporate a 48MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. While it’s an improve over the 16MP principal digital camera on the present Motorola Razr, Samsung’s GM1 sensor is now a era older. Phones just like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 9 Pro already use Samsung’s up to date 48MP ISOCELL Bright GM2 sensor which was launched final yr. Motorola has the chance to make use of it as properly, however most likely isn’t doing so to chop down on prices.
Elsewhere, the entrance digital camera on the brand new Motorola Razr can be rumored to go from a 5MP sensor to a 20MP shooter.
XDA additional experiences that the machine will run Android 10 out-of-the field. It’ll additionally apparently get the identical dimensions for each the primary and exterior shows, so count on a 6.2-inch foldable display screen and a 2.7-inch outer show.
Motorola Razr 2: Better specs however nonetheless not a flagship
While the upgraded specs definitely bode properly for the brand new Motorola Razr, it nonetheless appears to be lacking flagship attraction. The Galaxy Z Flip is already a a lot better proposition than the present Motorola Razr. If Samsung releases an up to date Z Flip, it may very thwart Moto’s second try as properly. Then there’s additionally Huawei which is reportedly engaged on a less expensive clamshell foldable. So Motorola clearly has its work lower out for it.
We hope the corporate makes amends and learns from the errors it made with the 2019 Razr. It was a disappointing cellphone general with an inflated worth, finances specs, and dangerous construct high quality. If Motorola addresses all these points, it may have a good likelihood at making a mark on the foldable telephones market.
