Motorola rejuvenated its iconic Razr flip phone last year, and now the company is apparently working to launch an upgraded sequel in North America as soon as this September.
Motorola teased an upcoming virtual event slated for Sept. 9 last week, which it’s described as “getting ready to flip the smartphone experience once again.” The Chicago-based company didn’t provide further details, but a couple of months ago Thibault Dousson, Lenovo South Africa’s general manager, revealed in a tech podcast that the next version of Motorola’s revived Razr was imminent.
There’s a new iteration [of the Razr] coming up. There’s one in September I think, coming up,” he said just after the 18-minute mark.
The “Razr 2” (unofficial name) is expected to feature Qualcomm’s 5G-capable Snapdragon 765 processor. It should also have a larger 2,845-mAh battery, up from the 2,510-mAh battery found in the 2019 phone, according to a May report by XDA Developers. It’ll also feature 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, a 48-megapixel rear camera along with Android 10 support out of the box.
