- A Lenovo executive revealed that the upcoming foldable phone will have improvements in power and design.
- The next generation Motorola Razr will debut in China first.
Motorola Razr 5G, which debuted last year, will finally usher in its successor in 2022. Chen Jin, the IT manager of Motorola’s parent company Lenovo, confirmed this through his Weibo profile.
Motorola’s third-generation Razr will be a major upgrade to its predecessor (via Android Authority). According to Chen, the upcoming Razr 3 will have a more advanced processor. He did not specify the chipset in question, but it may be more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G that supports Razr 5G.
According to the latest news, it is difficult to rule out the possibility that Motorola will use the Snapdragon 8 series processors in its next foldable phone. In addition, Motorola Edge X30 is driven by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, so foldable Motorola devices driven by the same high-end chipset will not come as a surprise.
This phone will also have a redesigned interface and improved design, which shows that Motorola will solve many software problems of the previous generation. In addition, little is known about the Razr 3 specifications.
However, considering the fierce competition in the foldable race, it is wise for Motorola to increase the battery life of Razr in the next iteration, as this is one of the main shortcomings of Razr 5G and the first-generation model of 2019.
Due to these shortcomings, Motorola’s Razr product line has fallen behind its competitors and is currently dominated by Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3. Let us hope that Motorola’s next answer to the best foldable phone can solve these problems.
Chen also revealed that Razr 3 will be launched in China first, but no specific date has been set yet.

The new Galaxy Z Flip 3 is perfect for those who miss the dramatic days when hanging up the phone is like slamming the phone off. And, thanks to the larger external display, it is ideal for controlling music, checking messages and taking selfies with dual camera settings.
