The next Motorola Razr will maintain its main star feature, the folding screen, but it will reinvent itself with much more premium specifications in line with its high-end price. According to the leaks, it will arrive in a few months with 5G network compatibility, more cameras and more autonomy.
The legendary Motorola Razr that came to life in early 2020 in the form of a folding screen version is about to be renewed with its second generation. The manufacturer would have this second Motorola Razr (2020) ready for the month of September with even more premium features than those of the previous version.
Recovering the shell-type mobiles using screens that can be folded has turned out to be a very interesting idea for Motorola, as we saw first-hand in Computer Hoy. The Motorola Razr deserved a new version that was better adapted to the characteristics that include the current high-end terminals, and it seems that it will be.
Evan Blass, a tweeter known for his successful leaks, ensures that the second generation of the Motorola Razr with flexible screen is already in the oven, will arrive in September with features such as a 48 Mpx camera, compatibility with 5G networks and a 6-screen ,8 inches.

Blass’s leak does not indicate all the specifications of this new terminal, but in his tweet he points out for example that this model will have a secondary camera of 20 Mpx. That is, it will have two rear cameras, while the first Motorola Razr with a folding screen only had one of 16 Mpx (and another front of 5 Mpx).
According to this leak, the new Razr will also have 256 GB of internal storage, compared to 128 GB in the 2019 version, and will feature Android 10 instead of Android 9 Pie. These characteristics coincide to a greater extent with those already filtered by the XDA-Developers website. They also claimed that the new Razr will have 5G thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor, as well as talking about a larger 2,845 mAh battery.
By increasing power and speed with that 5G processor, it is necessary to provide the phone with greater autonomy so that the battery does not drain very quickly. Foldable phones still have difficulty getting the same batteries of more than 4,000 mAh that make up the rest of the phones on the market and the fault lies with their folding format, so that for now it is unlikely that we will see superior capabilities in them.
Recall that the Motorola Razr of early 2020 hit the market with a starting price of 1,599 euros. This was one of the most discussed points, a price more typical of the highest range for a phone that, except for its ability to fold, did not have premium features that justified that figure. At the moment the price of the new generation has not been filtered, we will have to wait to see if the new specifications increase that price or if the brand maintains it.
