We finally have confirmation that Motorola is working on a foldable Motorola Razr 3 phone. According to the reports, the Lenovo-owned tech company has confirmed that it is indeed working on a new Razr foldable smartphone powered by the most recent Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC.
This news comes after Motorola was previously rumored to be developing such a device. An image of the upcoming smartphone went viral on the internet, and it pretty much-exposed specifics on the likely design and even specifications. Now, Motorola has formally confirmed that it is working on a new Moto Razr foldable smartphone powered by the most recent Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC.
In a post on Weibo, Shen Jin, the General Manager of Motorola, shared a teaser picture about the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. We can see a depiction of the highly lighted Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 on top of a broad, V-shaped design. This gives the impression that the foldable Motorola Razr 3 phone will have a clamshell form factor, which verifies the coming of the next-generation Motorola foldable phone.
The Motorola Razr 3 phone competes against other such foldable series as Samsung’s Z Flip series. The tech company has no plans to modify its folding mechanism, which means it will continue to compete with the Z Flip 4 in terms of mechanism and specifications. The upcoming Razr may be called the Motorola Razr 3, but it will not change the company’s folding mechanism.
