Motorola may have confirmed its future folding smartphone Razr 3 and good news: it would ship the latest high-end SoC announced by Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
While Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 was presented a few days ago, the manufacturer Motorola announced that one of its future smartphones will be equipped with this SoC. But in this announcement, we can detect that this model could be a folding one: could it be the Razr 3?
Motorola CEO posts image announcing the Razr 3
On the Chinese social network Weibo, the general manager of Motorola Shen Jin published a rather mysterious image, reported by PhoneArena. It actually announces that the manufacturer is working on a phone equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, SoC dedicated to high-end smartphones. He states that inside this image, a easter eggs hides.
L’easter eggs is not the advertised SoC, but it hides a little lower. The light comes from what could be seen as a folding smartphone.
What we know about the Motorola Razr 3
However, despite this clue, nothing more is known about the Razr 3 from Motorola. For the moment, rumors say that the successor to the Razr 2 would be entitled to Ultra Wide Band (UWB) compatibility, 6 to 12 GB of RAM, 128 to 512 GB of storage and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The most curious have been served since a few weeks ago, the design of the Motorola Razr 3 leaked: it would be inspired by what the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 does.
Among other new information, the screen would be FHD +, the selfie sensor of 32 Mpx, a main sensor of 50 Mpx and an ultra wide-angle of 13 Mpx capable of taking macro photos.
The Motorola Razr 3 should be released in China this summer, but would arrive later in our regions; two colors would be available: black or blue. If confirmed, the Razr 3 would therefore be among the first smartphones to benefit from the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. We have also learned that the Asus ROG Phone 6 will also be equipped with it, as will the Motorola Frontier which has been teased by the manufacturer, with a 200 Mpx photo sensor.
