Lenovo announced: the smartphone valve of its Motorola brand will come back in force with a third generation.
The Motorola Razr 3 will therefore benefit from more power, a new interface as well as a better design.
A better-controlled third generation?
After the first Razr of the name and the Razr 5G, Motorola and Lenovo are therefore officially preparing to launch a new generation of clamshell smartphones with a folding screen. In any case, this is what Chen Jin, general manager at Lenovo China, revealed on the social network Weibo.
According to him, the Motorola Razr 3 (we’ll call it that for now) will obviously be more powerful, with a better interface but also a modified appearance. There is no doubt that the overall idea of the clamshell smartphone will remain, but modifications on the hinge, or even more simply on the external screen, could be put in place.
However, we have no details on this future folding smartphone: no release date, no official name, or even information on the components used. Maybe Lenovo will look, like Honor, at the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1?
Motorola addressed the most of the flaws with the Razr 5G, which was released in 2020. It also has 5G, thanks to the Snapdragon 765G, more RAM and storage, and better polish throughout. However, it was prohibitively pricey in contrast to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, which was unquestionably a far superior smartphone.
Given the present state of the foldable smartphone industry, the Razr 3 carries a lot of weight. Samsung today controls the folding smartphone market, while Oppo has previously demonstrated a capable first-generation foldable with the Oppo Find N. In China, Xiaomi offers a folding phone, and while Huawei leads the market, Honor is scheduled to launch its first folding phone.
