Motorola will hold a special event next Tuesday (2) to present its newest foldable smartphone. O Razr 2022 is expected as one of the main competitors of the future Galaxy Z Flip 4 from Samsung, betting on renewed look, powerful specifications, new external screen and bigger battery to attract users.
After a long hiatus since the launch of the Razr 5G in September 2020, the new model has already had its design confirmed in an official teaser, showing off a reflective glass finish, dual rear camera and horizontal-hinged flip format.
A GIF shared by well-known informant Evan Blass also shows the Razr 2022 in operation, reinforcing the existence of the side biometric reader for authentication, a relatively thick-edged screen when compared to other models in the category, such as the Galaxy Z Flip 3, in addition to the external panel. for quick access to notifications.
Another highlight of this new generation will be the presence of more differentials for the external display, which thanks to its larger size will allow users to perform more tasks, including playing games.
We expect Motorola to keep features that already exist in current models, such as making calls, taking pictures, reading and responding to notifications, controlling music and much more without having to open the device.
Motorola Razr 2022 will bet on high performance
Motorola has confirmed that the Razr 2022 will be the first foldable smartphone of the year equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip, an updated version of the 8 Gen 1 offering more performance and lower power consumption. The use of the premium processor is a big improvement over previous models that bet on intermediate chips.
Leaks indicate that the device will have a 6.7-inch internal screen with OLED technology, Full HD resolution and support for a 120 Hz refresh rate. The external screen should bet on a size close to 3 inches.
