Motorola Razr 40 passes by Geekbench and 3C certification

Motorola Razr 40

Motorola confirmed the launch of new foldable smartphones for June 1. Thanks to multiple leaks, we already know that the company is coming with two foldable smartphones and not just one. These new devices will serve as a continuation of the Motorola RAZR series, but at the same time, they are a new beginning. The new devices are expected to launch as Motorola Razr 40 and Razr 40 Ultra. The new naming will give more importance to the RAZR series and will match the company’s Edge generation. This year we had the Motorola Edge 40 series, and then, the RAZR 40 series. While we’ve heard a lot about the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra, the info is a bit vague when it comes to the vanilla variant. Today, some of its specs have been confirmed by an appearance on the Geekbench benchmark and 3C certification.

Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 and 33W fast-charging confirmed

The new details basically confirm what we have been expecting from the Motorola Razr 40. It will be a less-premium foldable smartphone and will cost less than its Ultra sibling. Thanks to leaked images we already know the phone will be closer to the Moto RAZR 2022 in terms of design. It won’t bring a larger outer display like the Ultra variant.

Now, the Geekbench benchmark confirms we are seeing a mid-range performance with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1. The phone boasts model number XT2323-3 on both Geekbench and 3C certifications. Besides the CPU, the Geekbench website also confirms 12 GB of RAM. Lastly, it will be running on Android 13.

When it comes to 3C certification, the listing confirms the phone will bring 33W fast charging. It’s far from the fastest charging standards we see nowadays. However, that is more than what Samsung currently offers and will offer with the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip5.

Samsung’s foldable should be one of the most relevant competitors for Motorola, and even with a “less premium” foldable, the company will overcome Flip’s 25W charging cap.

Motorola Razr 40 – The first mid-range foldable phone

According to the leaked pricing, the phone will retail at around €899 with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Storage. That makes it the cheapest foldable smartphone ever. For those who don’t mind the mid-range CPU, it will be a great opportunity to finally experience a clamshell foldable. Considering the leaked Moto Razr 40 Ultra’s price, the vanilla will cost €300 less. Other details are still unclear. However, we expect this phone to be the closest to the “first mid-range foldable smartphone”.


Considering that the release for both phones is imminent (June 1), we will stay tuned to see if more details will leak in the coming days.

Razr 40 Ultra

If you’re curious about the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra, the higher model is expected to pack the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The phone will also start with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Storage. The chipset will be behind the likes of the Galaxy Z Flip5 which is set to bring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. However, with a price tag of about €1200, a huge 3,800 mAh battery with 33W charging, 13 MP + 12 MP ultrawide camera combo with OIS, Motorola is probably expecting to sell this phone well.
