Back in January, we exclusively reported what we believe will be the upcoming specifications of the Motorola Razr 3, internally codenamed “maven”. Although as a result we knew what to expect on the spec side, we weren’t so sure when it came to design. We now get a first look at the device’s external screen and internal folding screen, thanks to an exclusive report from 91 Cell Phones.
According to images shared by the site, “maven” will lose the more nostalgic look of its predecessor, lose its beard and have a square design instead. Its FHD + screen with a hole-piercing camera remains the same, and the phone seems to keep its proportionally large external screen. There also seem to be some improvements in quality of life as the fingerprint reader will be moved from the back to the power button.
In terms of camera setup, the Motorola Razr 3 will have a primary camera with a 50MP f / 1.8 sensor that will be paired with a 13MP macro photo sensor. The front camera also comes with a 13 MP hole-shaped screen. As for the internal elements, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The report states that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus (SM8475) SoC could also be offered as a higher-level option, although delays in the production of that particular chipset could lead to those plans not being realized. Finally, there will be the option of 8GB of RAM or 12GB of RAM, with internal memory coming in 256GB or 512GB configurations.
According to the specifications we released earlier this year, we also expect the internal display to be a 120Hz AMOLED panel, and the phone will support both UWB and NFC. DSCC CEO Ross Young also approached us to tell us that the screen size is 6.7 inches.
According to a report from 91 Cell PhonesThe Motorola Razr 3 comes in two colors: Quartz Black and Tranquil Blue. The smartphone is expected to arrive in Asia sometime in late July or early August, and a global release will follow shortly thereafter. Although the price of the device is unknown, judging by its specifications, we expect it to have an appropriate price. It will be interesting to see how well received the next generation is, given that the foldable smartphone segment has become quite crowded since the first launch of the Motorola Razr in 2020.
