Motorola’s iconic folding flip smartphone is getting a new version, and it may have a bigger battery life!
Motorola invigorated its iconic foldable smartphones earlier in February this year. However, the original model received plenty of criticism from the tech world. Motorola is aiming to address those issues and launching a new model with far better features than the previous one.
The General Manager of Lenovo South Africa, Thibault Dousson, announced this decision on a Reframed Tech podcast, stating that a new Razr could be dropping around September.
“There’s a new iteration [of the Razr] coming out. From what I understand, there’s one in September, I think, coming out,” he said in a podcast interview.
The anticipated version reportedly carries several upgrades to take on Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip. According to XDA Developers, the so-called 2.0 Razor is expected to feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor with 5G enabled, along with a bigger 2,845 mAh battery, and an improved version of the 2,510 mAh battery found in the previous version. Motorola is expected to enhance the storage capacity in their latest version from 6GB to 8GB, doubling the built-in storage (256GB) like before.
As far as the displays are concerned, it’s uncertain whether Motorola could bring any significant change to its iconic Razor flip mechanism. The existing foldable design contains many issues such as the screen gets creaky after a few flips, and the screen layer starts to peel off. The question remains what the latest version has to offer to address it’s flipping smartphone issues!
