Motorola Razr 3 Teased by Company Official; Launch Timeline, Key Specifications Tipped



Motorola Razr 3 was teased in December and is reportedly under development. However, the Lenovo-owned sub-brand has not revealed any specifications regarding the clamshell foldable smartphones. On the other hand, Motorola Razr 3 had its specifications tipped by a couple of reports. It will reportedly get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, a full-HD+ foldable display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, and a 50-megapixel primary rear camera. It is also said to boot Android 12 out-of-the-box.

Motorola Razr 3 was initially teased by Chen Jin, General Manager of Lenovo Mobile Business Group, through a post on Weibo in December. Chen Jin mentioned in his post (translated) that Motorola Razr 3 will have “more advanced chip computing power, better human-machine interface, and of course, a more atmospheric appearance.”

Motorola Razr 3 availability (expected)

As per a report by Technik News, Motorola Razr 3 will be available later this year. It is expected to hit the shelves in June 2022. The report also mentions that due to the global chip shortages, Motorola may delay the launch of the clamshell foldable smartphone even further. The original Motorola Razr had a global launch in November 2019, while Motorola Razr 5G was globally launched in September 2020.
