The first generation of Motorola’s clamshell-style foldable, Motorola Razr, was first revealed in 2019. Meanwhile, the second generation of Motorola Razr, unveiled in 2020, provided 5G connectivity and better battery life; it had the same design as its predecessor. However, it seems like Motorola hasn’t given up yet and is reportedly working on the third generation of its foldable that will offer a complete redesign.
According to a Weibo post made by Chen Jin, the general manager of Lenovo’s mobile business group in China, Motorola is silently working on the third generation of its Razr foldable smartphone.
Although the original post is in Chinese, running the post through Google translate indicates that the third-generation Razr will have improved processing power, a more user-friendly interface and a new appearance.
Meanwhile, the image that is attached with the post gives us a closer look at the hinge mechanism that will be making its way to the third generation of Motorola Razr along with a thinner design that could possibly get rid of the huge chin found on the previous generation of the device.
Running the post through Google Lens further reveal that its so-called Star Orbit hinge design is a direct result of 100 different innovative patents.
The translation of the Weibo post also hints that the third-generation Razr will likely launch first in the Chinese market before subsequently making its way to other markets, but there doesn’t seem to be any indication of when that may be.
Motorola will need to work really really hard on the design and durability of its foldable flip phone if it wants to compete with already established foldable devices like Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, Huawei P50 Pocket and so on.
