Motorola will try foldable phones again with a third-generation Razr

Motorola is working on a new version of its Razr foldable smartphones, according to a Weibo post. The post is from Chen Jin, the general manager of the Lenovo Mobile Business Group in China (Lenovo is currently in charge of Motorola’s smartphone business), and describes how the company has been quietly working on a new addition to its lineup of foldable phones. Motorola’s first two modern foldables were mediocre phones with hefty price tags. The post mentions that the phone will have a better processor, better interface, and a tweaked appearance. At this early stage, it’s hard to say how different the third-gen device will be from the last one – the second-gen Razr was more of a spec bump that added 5G, rather than a marked improvement from the original Razr foldable announced in 2019. Perhaps the third attempt at a foldable will be a charm – its previous two attempts have been hard to recommend. We’ll be keeping our eyes out for more details or an announcement of this phone to see if it’s truly a notable upgrade or just another iteration of a forgettable foldable.
