Motorola Moto Razr: Leaked specifications
We already know everything about the next Moto Razr. Multiple leaks have confirmed the phone will pack mid-range hardware to keep the cost down. Instead of going for Snapdragon 865, the report says Moto Razr 2020 will use Snapdragon 765G. But this will be paired with a bigger 8GB RAM, offering up to 256GB storage and bigger 2,845mAh battery.

Using the Snapdragon 765G makes sure the new Moto Razr offers 5G connectivity, something the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip also promises with its 5G variant. The size of the phone remains the same, so it’ll be intriguing to see how Motorola packs all these updated hardware into it. The phone has two screens. The outer one sports a small 2.7-inch G-OLED Quick View panel. On the inside is a 6.2-inch P-OLED screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio.

The upgrades will also be seen with the phone’s camera. The report says, it will come with a 48-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL main camera. This is a big upgrade over the 16-megapixel we saw on the first Moto Razr phone last year. At the front, you’ll be getting a 20-megapixel shooter, which is also a decent upgrade over the 5-megapixel sensor.
