Motorola is preparing for its upcoming foldable, and now there is a new leak detailing the specifications of the upcoming Motorola Razr 40 Ultra.
So far, Motorola’s foldable smartphones have lagged behind similarly priced smartphones when it comes to what’s under the hood. The 2019 Razr launched with the Snapdragon 710 chip, with the updated Razr 5G then bringing the Snapdragon 765G — the same chip found in the Google Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 smartphones.
Now, with the 2023 Razr, known as “Motorola Razr 40 Ultra” according to recent leaks, the company is going to offer a major upgrade.
according to XDASo, the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra will be running a flagship chip, and not just one from 2023. Apparently, Motorola will use the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, the same chip used in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. It’s not quite as powerful as the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, But it is a very powerful and very efficient chip.
The device will then pair this chip with up to 12GB of RAM (8GB assumed on the standard model) and up to 512GB of storage (presumably starting at 128GB or 256GB). The internal display, though not scaled, will be a 2640 x 1080 resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. Meanwhile, the external display will be 1056 x 1066 in size. It is mentioned that Motorola maintains support for using full apps on the cover screen, but it will not be available for all apps by default.
In terms of cameras, Motorola appears to be using a 12MP Sony IMX563 for the primary camera and a 13MP SK Hynix Hi1336 for the secondary camera, which is supposed to be ultrawide based on previous models. The 32MP OmniVision OV32B40 sensor will then be used for the internal selfie camera. Also mentioned in the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra specifications are NFC, fingerprint sensor, and eSIM support. Colors include Blue, Black and Berber, the bright red we’ve been seeing lately.
The new Razr and its cheaper brother are expected to arrive in June. It’s unclear how the smaller phone will differ on the spec sheet.
