Leaked images of the Motorola Razr 3 reveal an upgraded camera and a more boxy design

A pair of leaked images from reliable leaker Evan Blass (via 91mobile phones) gives us our first look at what appears to be a test model of the third-generation Motorola Razr. Notably, the device, codenamed Maven, houses two upgraded cameras on the rear: a 50MP f/1.8 main sensor and a 13MP sensor for macro and ultra-wide-angle shooting.

In the picture of the fully closed device, you’ll notice that it appears to have lost its “chin,” or lip, which extended outward in previous iterations of the device. It looks like it will fold into a square shape when closed, which is a departure from both the modern remakes of the device and its original design.

Blass also points out that the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the power button, which is likely on the side of the device. Motorola previously placed the fingerprint sensor on the chin of the 2019 Razr, then moved it to the back of the device for the 5G-upgraded Razr released in 2020. Both placements were not exactly ideal – The edgeFormer editor-in-chief of , Dieter Bohn, described the placement on the back of the device as a “difficult spot to reach” and said the chin mounting forced him to open the phone with two hands.

Blass says the Razr 3 comes with an FHD+ inner-folding display and a 32-megapixel selfie pinhole camera. (You can see the picture of the inside screen of the device at 91mobile phones.) Motorola is rumored to be releasing a standard version of the device with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 System-on-a-Chip (SoC), along with a “Plus” variant, presumably with an updated, but still unknown, chip. The storage is said to be equipped with up to 12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal storage.

With its boxier design and dual camera sensors, it looks like Motorola is preparing to compete with Samsung’s flagship foldable phone: the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The first two Razr launches weren’t exactly the most impressive – the device from 2019 cost $1,499 a day and has several flaws, like a lumpy screen, creaking hinge, and subpar camera. Motorola’s second iteration wasn’t much better, and the addition of 5G still didn’t justify the $1,399 price point.

In line with an announcement by a Lenovo executive in December (Lenovo bought the wireless brand in 2014), the third-generation Razr is set to launch in China in July or August. However, there is no word on a release date outside of China. The edge contacted Motorola for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.
