Motorola is working on a 5G version of its flip-foldable phone, Moto Razr. Conveniently dubbed as Moto Razr 5G, the phone has leaked online ahead of an official release. The leaked live images further reveal the new variant comes with some key design changes.

The most noticeable change is the removal of the bulky chin and absence of the fingerprint reader. According to reports, Motorola has moved the sensor to the side in order to keep the design more compact. It is highly unlikely the phone will have an in-screen fingerprint reader considering the Z Fold 2 and Z Flip 5G don’t have the facility as well.

Apart from design changes, Motorola’s Moto Razr 5G will come with some important specifications upgrades as well. The company plans to swap the 16-megapixel main camera with a 48-megapixel sensor. The selfie camera will be upgraded to a 20-megapixel sensor, up from a 5-megapixel sensor, reports GSMArena.

On the performance front, Motorola Razr will use the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with up to 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. The battery size will be increased to 2,845mAh with 18W fast charging. Moto Razr 5G is rumoured to come with a larger 6.7-inch display.

To give you more context, Motorola’s first-ever foldable phone, Moto Razr, is available in India for 1,24,999. Despite the steep pricing, Razr comes with underwhelming mid-range phone level specifications. It runs on the Snapdragon 710 and comes with a 2,510mAh battery and 15W fast charging support. It has a 6.2-inch main display and a 2.7-inch cover display.

As said earlier, Motorola has not officially announced the phone yet. According to reports, Moto Razr 5G could debut as early as September.
