At the dawn of its appearance in 2004, the clamshell Motorola RAZR phone revolutionized the market and was a total success. At one time for the company, this model became a kind of gold mine. Therefore, it is not surprising that the Motorola Razr 2019 saw the light last year, which has become a modern rethinking of the legendary clamshell phone.
True, it did not repeat the success of its predecessor, initially, the goal was not to release a mass product. The smartphone itself turned out to be quite problematic, and all because of the flexible panel, the creation technology of which is not yet perfect. But this is not a reason to abandon research on the path of creating foldable devices and Motorola is preparing a second generation of Razr with a flexible panel.
Motorola RAZR 2020 appears in a live photo from a credible source
The well-known leak provider Evan Blass has released a photo showing a new Motorola smartphone, codenamed Odyssey. According to rumors, it may enter the market as the Motorola Razr 5G or Motorola Razr 2020. The key focus is on 5G support and will provide it with the Snapdragon 765G chip.
The smartphone will largely borrow the features of the Motorola Razr 2019, but the chin has become noticeably smaller and there is no fingerprint scanner button on it. Most likely, you will need to rely on face recognition to identify the user.
There are rumors that the Motorola Razr 2020 will offer a 6.2-inch flexible P-OLED screen and an additional 2.7-inch G-OLED display, a 20MP front-facing camera and a 48MP main camera based on the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. In addition, the battery capacity should be 2845 mAh.
