Motorola Razr 3 leak teases a major camera upgrade for the foldable

It looks like there’s not much longer to wait before we can see the Motorola Razr 2022 – or the Motorola Razr 3, if you prefer – and a new leak gives us a look at the handset as well as some details on the specs to expect.

These unconfirmed details come from 91mobiles, which reports that the foldable flip phone is currently codenamed Maven. We’re getting photos showing the phone both open and closed, though it’s not easy to pick out many of the details.

One of the details we can see is the dual camera setup Motorola has put on the Razr 3 (on the back of the phone when open). There are now two lenses there – apparently 50MP and 13MP – whereas there was only one on the Motorola Razr 2020.

Screen and specs

It also looks like the outer screen is larger than it was on previous models, although as we mentioned it’s hard to see anything very clearly in these shots. Both the 2020 model and the original 2019 Motorola Razr came with a 2.7-inch external display.

According to 91mobiles, the phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and you can get it with 8GB or 12GB of RAM, along with 256GB or 512GB of onboard storage. A launch is planned in the coming months.

This all lines up perfectly with previous rumors we’ve heard about the Motorola Razr 3. Earlier reports pointed to a storage upgrade to 512GB, along with a 50MP + 13MP dual-lens camera – rumors that are now backed up by leaked images.


Analysis: the Razr 3 sounds like a hit

There’s little judgment you can pass on a phone before it’s actually released, but on paper at least it looks like the Motorola Razr has a lot to offer: top specs, better camera and that classic foldable form factor. .

The phone will, of course, be up against the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which is expected to arrive in August, but Motorola owner Lenovo has the historic clout of the Razr name to lean on to entice potential buyers.

Phone buyers always want better specs, better photos of their devices and more options to choose from, and it looks like the Motorola Razr 3 is going to deliver – which makes the lack of a 2021 edition of the phone more easy to take.

When we can get our hands on the new foldable, we’ll of course give our full verdict, but from what we’ve seen so far, the early signs are good. The 2022 Razr might just beat the 3 out of 5 stars we gave its predecessor.
