It’s almost time for Samsung to unveil its second foldable phone this year and it won’t be too much of a surprise if the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s presence will raise questions about Motorola’s next foldable phone.
Motorola though, isn’t going to stray away from its RAZR form factor to take on Samsung, which, in turn, raises more questions about its viability. Considering it won’t be a RAZR 2 or RAZR 2020, there might be some misgivings about the Motorola RAZR 5G. It turns out, however, that it might still have some things going for it after all.
As the name suggests, the Motorola RAZR 5G will basically be an upgrade to the new foldable Motorola RAZR that was announced last year but only launched in India only earlier this year. Even without considering the addition of 5G capability, the upgrade from a Snapdragon 710 to a Snapdragon 765G alone might already be worth calling it a RAZR 2.
That won’t be the only upgrade though, at least not according to leaker Ishan Agarwal. The main camera, which was a 16MP shooter, is getting replaced by a 48MP sensor instead of an earlier leaked 20MP. The front 5MP camera also gets upgraded to a 20MP camera. Of course, it’s not all about megapixels so it remains to be seen just how much better the camera output will be this time.

The battery will also jump from 2,510 mAh to 2,800 mAh but it’s, unfortunately, a few figures shy of a rumored 2,845 pack. The leakster also points out that the phone will be lighter and slightly smaller than its predecessor but, based on the renders, still looks exactly the same.
On paper, The RAZR 5G will measure 168.5 x 72.5 x 8 mm and weigh 190 grams. Compared to 2019’s Motorola RAZR, the upcoming 5G variant is slightly longer and thicker but weighs 15 grams lighter.
Also, there is no front-facing fingerprint scanner on the chunky bottom bezel. From the renders, it looks like Motorola completely got rid of the fingerprint scanner than opting for a side-mounted one. Besides, the edges and corners also look more rounder on the Motorola RAZR 5G than its predecessor.
While the volume rocker stays on the right edge, the power button is now moved to the left edge. The device will be running on Android 10 out of the box and the company might announce new features for the quick view display. The complete details including the pricing and availability of the new Motorola RAZR 5G will be officially revealed on 9th September.
