Motorola Razr 3 leaks with dual cameras

The crown jewel of the foldable market has generally been devices in the form factor of the Galaxy Z Fold series, but the winner in terms of sales volume was the traditional flip phone form factor. Motorola previously confirmed that a foldable “Motorola Razr 3” was in development, and now a new report gives us our first look at “Maven”.

Evan Blass reports via 91Mobiles that the device pictured below is the “Motorola Maven”, which will be sold as the brand’s next foldable flip phone. We refer to the device as the “Razr 3” as the official branding has yet to be released.

This first look at the “Motorola Razr 3” shows a device with an updated design that is much closer to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3. It looks like Motorola ditched the “hump” at the bottom of the design in favor of something a bit flatter. It’s hard to see the outer screen based on this photo, but it still appears to be a larger panel than what Samsung uses, based on the barely visible evidence of where that screen is.

One of the big changes seems to be with the camera array. While the previous two generations of Razr offered only one camera, Motorola has two sensors on this “Razr 3”. These are in the corner of the design, not unlike the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Apparently the primary sensor is a 50MP shooter backed by a 13MP ultrawide, with a 32MP selfie camera inside the device. The screen remains at FHD+.

As far as specs go, “Maven” is described as a “top-of-the-line” offering. That includes Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, though it seems plans for two versions of the device, one with the existing Gen 1 and one with the upcoming “Plus” variant, may be hampered by delays in delivery. the newer, as yet unannounced chip . RAM comes in at 8 GB/12 GB and storage at 256 GB/512 GB, depending on the variant.

The “Motorola Razr 3” is set to arrive sometime this summer, specifically around July or August to China. “Quart Black” and “Tranquil Blue” will apparently be the launch colors.

Prior to this upcoming device, Motorola has released two more foldables. Launched in 2019, the original Razr relied heavily on the idea that it breathed new life into the design of the classic Razr flip phone. However, when it came to practical reviews, opinions were less favorable due to hardware issues and slow software updates. The Razr 5G was released in 2020 as a refinement of that original device, delivered with better hardware, but stiff competition from Samsung and the Razr’s high price tag contributed to minimal traction.
