Motorola is working on a second-generation foldable phone which will launch later this year. Dubbed as Moto Razr 2, the foldable phone is said to come with some serious specifications upgrade along with 5G connectivity.

It may be recalled that Motorola's first Razr foldable phone had faced a lot of criticism over its underwhelming specifications. For instance, the phone offered one 16-megapixel camera on the back. It ran on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 processor – a chipset usually found in mid-range phones. At 1,24,999, Razr was more affordable than the Samsung Galaxy Fold but came nowhere close in the specifications department. Samsung's flip-fold hybrid Galaxy Z Flip also had better specifications and overall experience to offer.

Motorola's second-generation Moto Razr, however, is going to address these concerns with an upgraded chip, RAM, camera, and battery. According to XDA Developers, Moto Razr 2 will run on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. The chip along with Snapdragon X52 modem is going to bring the 5G connectivity. The battery capacity will be increased to 2,845mAh.

The rear camera will be upgraded to Samsung's 48-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. The selfie camera on Moto Razr 2 is said to have a 20-megapixel sensor. The phone will run on Android 10 with Motorola's customisations to the OS for the foldable screens. There is no word on the possible upgrade of the display, but Motorola will likely make some improvements in this department as well.

The latest report comes shortly after Lenovo's South Africa General Manager Thibault Dousson confirmed to the Reframed Tech podcast that a new iteration of Motorola Razr was indeed in the works. According to Dousson, the phone will launch in September this year.
