Motorola has sent out teasers for its next big smartphone – likely the 5G-enhanced version of its second-generation foldable Razr flagship – which the company will announce on September 9, promising to "turn the smartphone experience around again."
While the teaser doesn't provide much information, the short clip appears to show a side view of a foldable phone (similar to the 2020 Razr) that is closing. If that weren't enough evidence, Motorola also appears to be using the same font that Razr invites from last year, teasing it with the similar slogan, "You're going to turn around".
Rumors of a revamped 5G Razr have been swirling around for months. Rumor has it that a bigger 6.2-inch screen, an improved 48-megapixel camera, and overall improved specs (with 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of internal storage, and a 2,845 mAh battery – all improvements over the original ) available. According to XDA developers, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 processor will also be equipped with 5G support for the new phone.
The original foldable Razr was a much-touted, but ultimately lackluster, attempt to revive the classic phone. While the overall design and foldable screen were interesting, the $ 1,499 phone was held back by its high price, poor battery life, poor camera, creaky hinge, and "lumpy" screen. We'll probably find out on September 9th whether Motorola has managed to fix these flaws on the new model.
