Motorola has unveiled a few iterations of its only foldable phone – the Moto Razr. Both phones were reminiscent of the original Moto Razr, but they had one big problem when it came to the design.
Now, the company has revealed the upcoming Moto Razr 2022 long before launch and it looks like the company has finally overhauled the phone’s design and internals.
The next phone was demonstrated (opens in new tab) by Motorola’s China GM Chen Jin at an event in China and the company also launched a video teaser (opens in new tab) highlighting key design aspects of the phone. However, first and foremost, the company seems to be doing away with the massive chin at the bottom, giving the phone a slimmer, slimmer profile.
The phone will continue to have an inward-folding main screen. The display appears to be surrounded by a raised border on all sides for protection. The phone has curved corners, a new dual camera setup and a redesigned hinge.
Another notable aspect is the missing notch that was seen at the top of the main display in both previous iterations. While the images aren’t very clear, however, the company may have opted for a cutout to house a selfie camera.
The phone’s outer screen also appears to be larger than previous iterations and that’s a welcome move too. That screen is much larger than what we’ve seen on the Galaxy Z Flip 3, which makes it useful enough for reading longer messages or emails, and even replying to them.
In terms of specs, the Moto Razr 2022 should come with a 6.7-inch P-OLED folding screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The dual camera setup on the phone is expected to be a 50MP main camera and a 13MP ultrawide module. While the phone’s external screen should be a 3-inch screen.
Powering the phone can be a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which can be coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The fact that the phone has been officially revealed, we can expect it to be released soon – although there is no information on its availability in international markets.
Has Motorola finally cracked the code?
The previous two iterations of the Moto Razr were promising but fell far short when it comes to the overall experience. Not only were the phones expensive, but they also lacked core specs.
The design looked odd as the company decided to keep the massive chin, which didn’t offer a great user experience. Thanks to that heavy bottom design, single-handed operation was not easy and the phone would tip over.
The redesigned phone not only looks lean, has a sleek design and top-notch specs, but it also looks like a phone worthy of taking on the Galaxy Z Flip 4. Leaks also suggest the phone could be priced close to €1,149, which is cheaper. than the previous Moto Razr phone.
