This summer belongs to foldables! Samsung is set to unveil the Z Flip 4 and Z Fold 4 on August 10, and Motorola is aiming to introduce the third-generation Moto Razr sooner (just in a few days, on August 2). The Moto Razr 2022 has seen some leaks (not as many as Samsung’s foldable devices), and now we get to see the big outer screen from a teaser on the Chinese social media website Weibo (via GSMArena).
Moto Razr 2022 large outdoor screen teased in a new photo
The post on Weibo reveals the large outdoor screen that will rock the third-generation Moto Razr. You can tell it’s noticeably bigger than the 2-inch cover screen that its direct rival, the Z Flip 4, is expected to rock.
As you can see, the screen has a rectangular form factor. Next to it we see the camera setup with two cameras horizontal to each other, and an LED flash next to it.
The Weibo teaser also notes that this outer screen may be “on par with the internal screen” (machine translation), and while it’s not exactly clear what this means, it’s entirely possible that the post refers to functionality. And yes, with that big screen you can do a lot of things other than quickly check a notification.
Here’s a quick rundown of the other things we’ve heard about the upcoming Moto Razr 3. The foldable clamshell is said to rock the latest and greatest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, which will ensure peak performance. The phone is expected to have 12GB of RAM for hiccups-free multitasking and 512GB of storage.
As for the two cameras, rumor has it that the main camera will rock a 50MP sensor, and a 13MP wide-angle/macro hybrid unit will be the second camera. The selfie camera is expected to be a 32MP camera.
The main display of the phone will reportedly be a 6.7-inch FHD+ display with a fast 120Hz refresh rate. On paper, this all sounds like a pretty solid rival for the upcoming Flip 4. One area where we might not see an improvement is battery life, and the Razr 3’s battery cell is rumored to remain the same as the Razr 2 ( 2800mAh) .
The Razr 3 is said to cost $1,149 (about ~$1,153) in Europe.
