MSPoweruser claims to have received the first render image of Motorola's upcoming foldable smartphone. Unlike many of its competitors, Motorola currently sells two foldable smartphones. On the one hand, in North America it offers the Razr 40razr Gen 3, a relatively inexpensive device that uses Qualcomm's Snapdragon 7 Gen 1, a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 device. On the other hand, there is also the Razr 40 Ultra (Razr+), a direct competitor to the Galaxy Z Flip5, which, however, uses an older chipset than Samsung's.
According to MSPoweruser, the device pictured below is more likely to do the latter than the former. However, the website has not provided any evidence to support this claim other than the following statement:
The phone will be available in the US via Verizon Wireless… under the Razr+ brand.
Assuming Motorola sticks with its current nomenclature, the new Razr+ would be sold outside of North America as the Razr 50 Ultra. It seems that Motorola has not changed the design of its devices from generation to generation. In fact, the single image provided by MSPoweruser could easily be mistaken for a new full-color Razr 40 Ultra. MSPoweruser adds that Motorola has codenamed its upcoming Razr flagship “Glory” and is developing it under the model number “XT-2453-3” with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. Unfortunately, it remains to be seen whether Motorola will replace the Razr 40 Ultra with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 based Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.
