“Leaked Photo of Motorola Razr (2023) Reveals Vibrant Redesign”


A live image that is purported to show the upcoming Motorola Razr (2023) clamshell smartphone has been published by 91mobiles. Reportedly, the phone will bear the model number XT-2321-3. The image reveals the back of the Razr (2023) with the device opened, displaying the two parts that make up the back in different colors–the top half in black and the bottom half in maroon.

Distinct Features

The hinge, although only the back part can be seen, is at the top of the maroon section of the rear. Additionally, the image displays the dual cameras on the back in the same upper-left location as the Razr (2022).

Razr’s Availability and Competition

The Razr 2022 was not offered in the United States, and it is unknown where Motorola plans to introduce the next Razr model. However, rumors have suggested that the Razr (2023) will represent a substantial improvement compared to its predecessors. With the introduction of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Oppo’s new Flip Find X2, Motorola must face stiff competition, especially given that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 was the most popular foldable phone in 2020, followed by the Galaxy Z Flip 3 the year before.

Quick View Display and Battery

One area in which Motorola may outperform Samsung is with the external cover screen. The Razr (2022) featured a 2.7-inch AMOLED Quick View display that, this time, might be increased in size and possibly be given new features, such as notifications, music control, and selfie-taking, without having to open the phone. Although the Galaxy Z Flip 5 might offer a larger cover screen than the Galaxy Z Flip 4’s 1.9-inch display, it is likely that Motorola will continue to excel in this critical feature.

The Razr’s 3500mAh battery is an aspect that Razr enthusiasts want Motorola to develop further. The Galaxy Z Flip 4’s battery capacity was only slightly better at 3700mAh, and although a big battery is challenging to incorporate, consumers expect both Motorola and Samsung to improve in this area. Last year’s Razr had a fast-charging speed of 33W.

Technical Specifications

The Razr (2022) unveiled a 6.7-inch plastic-OLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 and a 20:9 tall-and-thin aspect ratio. In contrast to prior Razr versions, the phone was loaded with a flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, accompanied by 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of storage.

The phone’s camera array includes a 50MP primary camera sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide lens sensor, and a 32MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats. The device’s fingerprint sensor is integrated with the power button, and while it doesn’t have an IP rating, it is splash-resistant.

The Story of Razr

The Razr’s story dates back to December 2003, when the Razr V3 was launched. It was a feature phone that soon became one of the most popular mobile handsets ever made, with the V3 model alone selling more than 130 million units worldwide. Subsequently, touchscreen smartphones appeared, and the Razr was left behind until 2019, when Motorola introduced a touchscreen smartphone version of the phone based on popular demand.

Motorola hasn’t disclosed how well the refreshed Razr has sold, and while nostalgia might have contributed to the demand in 2019, the time has arrived for the device to stand on its own. This indicates that it must compete with the likes of the Galaxy Z Flip 5, Oppo Find N2 Flip, and even the Huawei Pocket S.
