Motorola is going to launch the 2nd generation of its Motorola Razr foldable phone this year. This was mentioned in a podcast by Lenovo executive. He is quoted saying, “There’s a new iteration [of the Razr – ed] coming up. There’s one in September I think, coming up.” This timeline means we might see another Razr phone launching in 2020 itself. The first version went on sale in February but it got mixed reviews for its durability and price tag.
Motorola Razr is the iconic phone from the company that got its second-coming in November last year. After multiple delays, the phone went on sale in 2020, which included markets like India. The foldable phone was launched in the country for Rs 1.25 lakh, which was deemed too high for its features and hardware on board.
We’re hoping the 2nd gen Moto Razr is not only cheaper but manages to offer solidity and longer battery life.
The phone has two screens. The outer one sports a small 2.7-inch G-OLED Quick View panel. On the inside is a 6.2-inch P-OLED screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC instead of a flagship-grade chipset. It runs Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with Android 10 update expected soon. You get a 16-megapixel sensor which is placed above the Quick View screen while the other 5-megapixel sensor is inside a notch. Similar to most devices, this notch is located on top of the bigger display.
