Back in January, we reported exclusively what we thought were the upcoming specs for the Motorola Razr 3, internally codenamed “belly”. Although we knew what to expect on the spec page as a result, we were not so sure about the design. Now we get our first look at both the device’s exterior display and interior foldable display, thanks to an exclusive report from 91 Mobile.
According to photos shared by the site, the “belly” will lose its predecessor’s more nostalgic look, lose its chin and instead offer a more square design. Its FHD + screen with a hollow camera remains the same and it looks like the phone will keep its proportionately large external screen. There also seems to be some improvements in the quality of life as the fingerprint reader will be moved from the back to the on / off 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 for macro photography. The front-facing camera also comes in at 13 MP in the form of a hole in the screen. When it comes internally, it will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The report states that Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus (SM8475) SoC could also be offered as a higher level option, although delays in the production of that chipset may result in these plans not becoming a reality. Finally, there will be an option for 8 GB RAM or 12 GB RAM, with internal storage of 256 GB or 512 GB configurations.
According to the specifications we reported earlier this year, we also expect the inner screen to be a 120Hz AMOLED panel and the phone will support both UWB and NFC. DSCC CEO Ross Young also contacted us to tell us that the screen size was 6.7 inches.
According to the report from 91 Mobile, The Motorola Razr 3 comes in two colors: Quartz Black and Tranquil Blue. The smartphone is set to arrive in Asia sometime in late July or early August, with a global release to follow shortly. Although the price of the device is unknown, judging by its specifications, we expect it to have a flagship price that matches. It will be interesting how well the next generation is received given that the foldable smartphone segment has become quite crowded since the company’s first launch of the Motorola Razr in 2020.
