Motorola is reportedly preparing to launch a foldable clamshell smartphone as the successor to the 2022 Moto Razr. The nickname and codename of the alleged handset have been leaked online. The anticipated foldable device is expected to have a new Motorola Razr+ moniker and the XT2321 model name. The Motorola Razr+ is rumored to have a 2.7-inch cover display and could be supported by a 2,850mAh battery. Its predecessor, the Moto Razr 2022, powered by a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, was unveiled in China last August.
According to a report by MySmartPrice, Motorola will launch this new foldable smartphone with the nickname Razr+ instead of the Razr brand name. The report also suggests the model number XT2321 for the Motorola Razr+.
A live image of the alleged Motorola Razr+ was recently leaked on the internet. The image hinted at a two-tone back and dual rear camera setup for the device. It’s rumored to come with a 2.7-inch external display and pack a 2,850mAh battery with 30W fast charging support.
In early February, during Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2023, Lenovo CEO Yuanqing Yang announced the arrival of the next edition of the Razr foldable smartphones, confirming that they would be launched “very soon”. It’s supposed to be official in June. Since this has not yet been confirmed by Motorola, the information should be treated with caution.
The anticipated Motorola Razr+ is likely to come with upgrades over the Moto Razr 2022, which launched in China last August with a starting price of CNY5,999 (roughly Rs.70,750) for the base 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant.
The Moto Razr 2022 features a foldable 6.7-inch OLED main display and a 2.7-inch OLED outer cover display. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC with up to 12GB of RAM. The handset features a dual rear camera consisting of a 50-megapixel main sensor and a 13-megapixel secondary sensor. There’s also a 32-megapixel front camera. It packs a 3,500mAh battery with support for 33W fast charging.
