Motorola Razr 3 foldable: What we know so far

There is mounting speculation that Motorola is set to re-enter the foldable space with the Motorola Razr 3, so let's take a look at what we know.

After some rather underwhelming runs at foldables, the rumour mill is erupting with reports that Motorola is set to head back into the arena. The speculative new model may be dubbed the Motorola Razr 3.

Can Motorola right past wrongs with this new handset? Let's round up everything we know (or think we know) about the Motorola Razr 3.

Motorola Razr 3 release date

Germany's TechnikNews believes that the Razr 3 will be released in June 2022. Other rumours point to a July/August Chinese release, with a worldwide rollout to shortly follow.

Australian availability is an even bigger question mark, given Motorola's spotty history of rolling out its products Down Under. At this early stage, we can only cross our fingers.

Motorola Razr 3 price

There's no real reporting on the matter of price. The last Razr to be widely rolled-out in Australia, the Motorola Razr 2019, carried an eye-watering RRP of $2,699. This price point was and is extremely prohibitive for many consumers.

Motorola will be looking to cut costs wherever possible, but considering some of the features certain reports are alleging, it might be overly optimistic to hope for a significant reduction.

Motorola Razr 3 design

We're much more informed about the design of this new phone, if rumours are to be believed. In these alleged leaks, a far boxier design is shown off, with the chunky bottom bezel of previous foldables removed. It looks like Motorola wants to ditch a retro look and thrust the Razr into the modern age. 2 colour options have also been leaked: Tranquil Blue and Quartz Black.

Rumours suggest the phone will have a 6.7-inch internal display and a 3-inch quick-view cover display. These will represent increases from the 6.3-inch internal and 2.7-inch cover displays of the Razr 2019. 2400x1800 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate are also reported to be featured.

Motorola Razr 3 specs

This is where dreams of a significantly cheaper Motorola Razr take a serious hit. The Razr 3 will reportedly boast a top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 chipset, a huge upgrade over Snapdragon 710 in the Razr 2019. Motorola is also looking to widen choices for RAM and SSD, with 6, 8 and 12GB RAM options and 128, 256 and 512GB SSD varieties. It is expected to ship with Android 12, and will have ultra wideband support.

According to a variety of reports, customers can safely expect a 50MP Omnivision main camera sensor, and a 13MP ultrawide sensor to support macro shots. For video fans, 4K 60 FPS standard and 1080p 120 FPS slow-mo video functionality will be supported.

All told, the Razr is sounding like a legitimate flagship, one that won't be accused of papering over subpar specs with its foldable design.
