After being unsuccessful in the previous attempt when Motorola launched Moto Razr, the Motorola Razr is getting a successor this year with a possible successful comeback. The possible “Razr 2” is to be officially presented on September 9th. But does the only slight hardware upgrade lead the foldable smartphone to success?
Earlier it was reported that Motorola Razr 2 is coming back with a larger screen size of 6.7-inches and supports 5G, however, the company only upgrades the internals with little changes except for one notable change which is 5G.
The first generation of the Motorola Razr smartphone could not convince on the market. Above all, the quality problems of the pOLED display and the high price in combination with outdated mid-range hardware did not seem to go down well even with Moto nostalgics. Now the Lenovo subsidiary is daring a new start with the “Razr 2” or possibly named “Razr 5G”, which will only bring a more or less significant upgrade internally. Under the motto “Getting ready to flip the smartphone experience once again“, the manufacturer invites you to a live stream event on September 9th.
More performance, 5G reception and improved 48 MP cameras
In July, last month there was talk of a successor to the Motorola Razr, whose goal seems to be primarily to bring 5G connectivity into the foldable smartphone with Android 10. If rumors are trusted, which we do most of the time in technology, Lenovo will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, which is to be installed in addition to 8GB of working memory and a 256GB internal storage.
With the display, however, everything else would remain the same: So basically we are not getting the 6.7-inch large screen as suggested earlier but rather 6.2 inches with 2142×876 pixels on the inside and a 2.7-inch screen on the outside. However, improvements can be expected with the new cameras 48MP+ 20MP, the 2845mAh battery, and the possibility of using a nano-SIM card. For average consumers, if they belong to the target group of the Motorola Razr 2 at all, the price will also be decisive at the end of the day.
The current Razr smartphone still costs around 1400 dollars and 1200 Euros in Europe. And viewing other products from competitors like the Apple iPhone 12, Google Pixel 5, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, the Razr 2 is entering a highly competitive market and price range. It would also be interesting to see whether Lenovo will launch the market this year or not aim for a release until the beginning of 2021.
