Reputed tech leaker, Evan Blass, has shared a few images of an upcoming foldable smartphone from Motorola that is rumored to be the upcoming Moto Razr 3. Code-named Maven, the device has two upgraded cameras – a 50MP main sensor and a 13MP sensor for ultra-wide-angle and macro shooting.
The photos also reveal that the Razr will lose its iconic chin, a design feature Motorola had decided to carry over from the iconic Moto Razrs of the early 2000s. It appears that the lip folds over on itself, forming a square shape when worn. is closed, which is a design choice that moves away from both the modern remakes of the device and the classic design.
Blass also believes that the fingerprint sensor is integrated with the power button on the side of the device. The fingerprint scanner was on the chin of the 2019 edition of the Moto Razr, while in 2020 the scanner was on the back of the device. Given its shape and size, the idea of putting it on the back was an odd one, as customers found it difficult to access the scanner with one hand.
The device is apparently powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, 12 GB of RAM and has up to 512 GB of internal storage. There will also be a “Pro” or “Plus” variant with even better specifications.
The device will sport a dual-camera system on the back, with a 50MP main sensor and a 13MP sensor for ultra-wide and macro shooting. For the selfie camera, Motorola has decided to go for a perforation cutout with a 32MP sensor.
Motorola has opted for an FHD+ foldable screen, which, with the overall bulky and square design of the device, is very similar to the Samsung Z Flip phones. It will be interesting to see how it compares to the upcoming Samsung Z Flip 4.
The Moto Razr 3 will be released for the first time in China, in July or August. While there’s no word on when the device will launch globally, tech enthusiasts believe it will be out by the end of the year.
