Popular Weibo tech blogger, @DCS reveals that Motorola is working on a new vertical inward foldable smartphone (flip phone) with a screen size of 6.7 inches. He also claims that this device will come with Qualcomm’s latest flagship processor, Snapdragon 8+ Gen1. From the parameters, this new smartphone should be the Motorola Razr 3. The blogger also reveals that the display of the new smartphone will support 120Hz. The screen will also use a centre punch-hole design which is very popular amongst flagships.
Furthermore, this smartphone will come with a small secondary screen on the back that can preview information. The front camera is 32MP while the rear main camera is 50MP. This device also comes with an auxiliary 13MP camera on the rear.
However, the blogger claims that the new foldable smartphone will come with a 2800 mAh battery. This is a very small and disappointing battery capacity for such a flagship device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 comes with a 3700 mAh battery. Even with this battery capacity, netizens are still complaining that the battery is small. Thus, the Motorola Razr 3 may set a new record for the smallest battery capacity of a foldable smartphone.

Motorola Razr 3 real image
Previously, the well-known leakster, onleaks, exposed the real photo of the Motorola Razr 3. The Motorola Razr 3 adopts a crease-free design and may use the star orbit hinge technology. This is Motorola’s exclusive patented technology. According to the company, this technology eliminates the lack of thinness when the device is folded. This technology coupled with the small battery means that this smartphone will be very thin even in the folding state.
According to reports so far, this device will first hit the Chinese market in late July. Subsequently, it will sell in other markets globally. As of now, there is no information on the price of this flagship smartphone.
