Motorola is about to announce its next major device, which the company has given assurance that it will flip the smartphone experience once again next month. On Wednesday, the company sent out media invites asking journalists to set time aside on September 9th.
This short briefing doesn’t provide too many hints about what we can expect, but between the included GIF and Motorola’s choice of words, it’s likely well seen the company announce a new version of its Razr foldable phone.
All kudos to XDA Developers, we’ve been aware since May that Motorola has been working on a new Razr. The website published a report that said the device would improve on the current Razr by adding more RAM, additional internal storage, and a greater capacity battery. XDA also said the flip phone would include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor, making it 5G-capable.
Improved specs could go a long way toward making Motorola’s latest foldable compelling where its predecessor was not. In his review of the Razr, we found the phone lacked some average battery life, a dim and low-resolution screen, and lackluster cameras. A $1,500 price tag was placed on it, and it didn’t help things either. Whether Motorola is able to make a better device this time around is something we’ll have to wait until September 9th to see.
