It will have upgraded hardware including 5G support.
Foldable smartphones are starting to become a new standard in design and the return of the Motorola Razr proved that it can resurrect a classic design for a new generation of users. While the first generation Razr didn’t come with top-of-the-line specifications, word has it is that a second-generation Razr is already in the works and is rumored to release this September.
This came from a Lenovo manager in South Africa that said in a podcast that a new version of the Razr – likely to be called the Razr 2 – is arriving this year, with September as a target month for the release.
Another report from XDA Developers said that some of the hardware upgrades for the Razr 2 include a Snapdragon 765 CPU with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You might be surprised why Motorola won’t load the Razr with a faster Snapdragon 865 but we’re thinking it is in the same line as to why the first-generation Razr used a Snapdragon 710 processor: heat issues. Using a slower processor can help manage heat, considering that the Razr has to keep the slim and lightweight profile along with that foldable display. Even the Razr 2’s camera will be upgraded to a new 48-megapixel sensor.
Additionally, with the Razr 2 using a Snapdragon 765 CPU, it means that it can also support 5G connectivity. The new connectivity option is on the rise this year, with most manufacturers already making 5G a standard on most on their flagships.
Motorola is still quiet about the existence of a Razr 2, but if these rumors prove to be true, then we can expect the new foldable smartphone to arrive later this year.
