Motorola Razr 3 to Reportedly Come with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC, Android 12, and a Second Display

Let’s take a look at the Motorola foldable smartphone’s specs and features leaked ahead of the launch.


Motorola launched the Razr foldable smartphone in 2019. The clamshell foldable smartphone failed to attract buyers in India due to its underwhelming hardware and a premium price tag. The company refreshed the foldable smartphone with a 5G chip later. It has been a few months since the update and it looks like Motorola is working on a new Razr foldable smartphone. 

The company has confirmed that the Razr 3 is coming soon. However, there is no word on the official launch date at the moment. While we wait for that, a new report by XDA has leaked the key specifications of the upcoming Motorola Razr 3 foldable phone. Let’s take a look at the Motorola foldable smartphone’s specs and features leaked ahead of the launch.

Motorola Razr 3 Leaked Specifications 

Motorola will make significant improvements in the performance unit of the Razr 3, according to a newly leaked spec report by XDA. The report states that the foldable phone will come with the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC under the hood. This will be a huge upgrade over the previous two generations, which have relied on a Snapdragon 7-series chip at heart. The original Moto Razr 2019 came with a Snapdragon 710 SoC, whereas the 2020 model was launched with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. 

The report further states that the phone will come in 6GB/ 8GB and 12GB RAM options. The foldable phone will also come with 128GB/ 256GB and 512GB storage options.  It will boot Android 12 out of the box. We can expect the device to have a layer of MyUX on top of Android, which offers some custom features over stock Android. 

The device will have a Full HD+ foldable AMOLED display. It will also come with support for a 120Hz refresh rate. At the top centre, there will be a hole-punch cutout for the front camera. The device will also come with additional camera sensors on the cover screen, details of which remain unknown at the moment. In addition to this, the Razr 3 will also support NFC, ultra-wideband, etc. 

With the leaked specs, it seems like Motorola is aiming at offering a truly-flagship experience with its upcoming foldable smartphone. It would be interesting to see how the company prices the device to compete against the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Samsung’s clamshell foldable phone is priced at Rs 84,999 in India. It comes in two variants, with the 256GB model priced at Rs 88,999.
