Leaked photos of Motorola Razr 3 reveal an upgraded camera and a boxier design

A pair of leaked images from reliable leaker Evan Blass (via 91Mobiles) gives us what appears to be a test model of the third-generation Motorola Razr. The device, codenamed Maven, notably has two advanced cameras on its back: a 50MP f/1.8 main sensor and a 13MP sensor for macro and ultra-wide shots.

With the device imaged completely off, you'll notice that it seems to have lost its "chin" or lip that extended outwards in previous iterations of the device. It looks like it folds on itself to form a square shape when closed, deviating from both the modern remake of the device and its original design.

Blass also notes that the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the power button, which is likely to be on the side of the device. Motorola previously placed the fingerprint sensor on the chin of the 2019 Razr, and then moved it to the back of the device thanks to the 5G-upgraded Razr that released in 2020. Both placements weren't exactly ideal - Dieter Bohn, The Verge's former executive editor, described its placement on the back of the device as "an awkward place to reach" and said that holding it on the chin allowed him to hold it with two hands. Captured allowed. Forcibly unlocked the phone.

Blass says that the Razr 3 comes with an FHD+ interior folding display and a hole-punch 32MP selfie camera. (You can see an image of the device's internal screen on 91Mobiles.) It is rumored that Motorola will release a standard version of the device along with the "Plus" with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 system-on-a-chip (SoC). version, possibly with an upgraded, but as yet unknown, chip. For storage, it is going to come with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage.

With its boxier design and dual camera sensors, it looks like Motorola is gearing up to compete with Samsung's flagship foldable: the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The first two Razer reboots weren't exactly impressive - the 2019 device came with a price tag of $1,499. , tags and several flaws, such as a lumpy screen, awkward hinge and subpar camera. Motorola's second iteration wasn't much better and the addition of 5G still doesn't justify its $1,399 price tag.
