Boring smartphone, boring logo

MORE DETAILS have emerged about Motorola’s bendy Razr reboot, and, er, prepare to be underwhelmed.

The leak comes of XDA-Developers, which also got its mitts on Motorola’s reworked Razr logo (above), and reveals that while the Moto Razr reboot will feature a dual-display foldable design, the handset’s specifications won’t be quite as exciting. 

Under the hood, the 2019 Razr will reportedly pack a middling octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset backed up by an equally-lacklustre 4GB or 6GB RAM and a 2,730mAh battery; that’s much smaller than the 4,500mAh and 4,380mAh batteries found inside the Huawei Mate X and Samsung Galaxy Fold, respectively.

The Razr’s screen will arrive as a 6.2in 2142,876 panel, according to XDA‘s sources, and will be accompanied by an, er, 800 x 600 external display.

The handset, codenamed ‘Voyager’, will also allegedly offer 64GB or 128GB built-in storage, support for Motorola’s 27W TurboPower charging and three colour options; white, black and gold. 

We had been expecting the Moto Razr to feature a more premium feature set, as an earlier report at the Wall Street Journal claimed the “high-end” handset would feature an equally high $1500 (around £1170) price-tag at launch. 

Motorola hasn’t commented on this latest leak, but the company recently confirmed that it’s working on a folding device that will launch “no later than everybody else in the market.”

With Samsung’s Galaxy Fold due to arrive in mid-April, followed by the Huawei Mate X in “mid-2019”, these comments suggest that Motorola will launch its foldable device within the next few months.  µ
