Is this the new foldable Motorola RAZR?
Vintage is in fashion, and the world of technology is no exception to this trend. That's why Motorola is currently preparing a new version of the Motorola RAZR, one of its most iconic phones (along with the StarTAC) that appeared in the 2000s.
For its grand return, the RAZR will be a foldable smartphone. Several images published on the Chinese social network, Weibo, and then taken up by SlashLeaks, reveal the design of the device. Is this really the new Motorola RAZR? It is still too early to know.
An old-fashioned design
While Samsung has postponed the launch of its first folding smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, and Huawei is about to launch its own, the Mate X, in June, Motorola continues to work on its folding smartphone. However, unlike the competition, the manufacturer, now owned by Lenovo, looks set to offer a more traditional concept with a vertical screen that folds in half. Aesthetically, we would therefore be very close to the original design of the RAZR. That's enough to satisfy many fans.
For the moment, it is not known whether, like the Galaxy Fold, the smartphone will also offer an external display. The packaging, which is triangular in shape, is also presented. Various accessories, such as a charger, charging dock, cover, headphones and a USB-C/jack adapter, are also visible, but it remains to be seen whether these images are authentic.
In any case, this new Motorola RAZR, according to information from the Wall Street Journal, should be marketed at a price close to 1,500 US dollars. However, no information on its release date is known. As for specifications, there again, it's a blur. Several rumors suggest the presence of a Snapdragon 710 processor and 4 GB of RAM but nothing has yet been confirmed.
What do you think of these leaks of the new Motorola RAZR?
Lenovo, Motorola, LG are worst in providing software updates.
Google, Nokia, Oneplus, Razor, Sony are best. Apple is class leading.
Xiaomi, Huawei, Honor, Asus, Realme, Samsung are good.
OPPO, VIVO, HTC, are OK.
Not sure about Nubia.
Apple shouldn't even be considered, taking into account that iOS have no issue of fragmentation so it hasn't another reference point to be compared with...
Yes, that's true. But still I included Apple because merit nonetheless is merit. The quality, and long term update policy of Apple is praiseworthy. It's their own OS, whose fate and well-being lies in their own hand, and they handle it well. Android OEM's can, if they want, who don't have to develop Android or pay any licenses fee, can and should better provide timely updates over the entire life cycle of the device.
