Just after Motorola has revealed the Razr flip phone, the company is revealed that it is working on an upgraded model in North America, which is set to be released in September.
When it comes to specs
It is called Razr 2 – at least for now, until we get an official name – and it will come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor, with 5G support, and a 2,845 mAh battery. This is quite the upgrade from the 2,510 mAh battery used in 2019. It will also come with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The rear camera will be of 48-megapixel. The operating system will be Android 10.
Get ready for September
The release date of the new device was revealed last week by Thibault Dousson: “There’s a new iteration [of the Razr] coming up. There’s one in September, I think, coming up.”
The rise to fame
Back in 2019, Razr went on sale in the US, and it was actually the first vertical foldable phone to appear on the market. It was praised for its mechanism and for the work of the engineers, but it did not have high-end specs, which could account for the price of $1,500. People also started to talk about the durability of the phone, which was an issue. The specs included a Snapdragon 710 chipset, 6GB of RAM, and 128 GB of internal storage. The rear camera was 16-megapixels.
The original Razr phone was released back in 2004, and it was the best-selling phone of all time. Well, before Apple came up with the iPhone and stole the spotlight.
Right now, we are waiting for more information about this device.
