Excitement is building as Motorola’s imminent launch event approaches, promising the unveiling of their highly anticipated next-generation flagship, the Razr. With just over a week remaining until Motorola unveils its highly anticipated next-generation foldable Razr phones. Despite numerous leaks providing comprehensive details about the upcoming foldable device, a recent retail leak has substantiated the key specifications and unveiled specific camera features of the upcoming device, referred to as the Motorola Razr+ or Razr 40 Ultra.
Renowned leaker SnoopyTech recently shared alleged specifications of the upcoming Razr 40 Ultra, alternatively known as the Razr+. According to the leaks, the Razr is expected to sport a Full HD+ pOLED display with a generous 6.9-inch diameter. These details are further supported by WinFuture, affirming a resolution of 2400 x 1080 and an aspect ratio that offers a more conventional smartphone display experience.
In an interesting contrast to its competitors like Samsung, Oppo, and Huawei, the Razr’s display is said to provide a more natural and less elongated aspect ratio, ensuring a comfortable viewing experience. Additionally, reports suggest that the Razr might boast an impressive 165Hz refresh rate, potentially setting a new benchmark for the fastest refresh rate on a foldable phone.
Regarding the external display, the latest leak indicates that the Razr’s cover screen will measure slightly larger at 3.6 inches, deviating from the previously teased 3.5-inch panel. However, it’s plausible that the measurement is being rounded up for convenience. The leaked information also suggests that the external display will possess a sharp resolution of 1066 x 1056, resulting in an almost perfect square aspect ratio.
Additional specifications for the Razr 40 Ultra include a 12MP primary camera featuring an ƒ/1.5 aperture, accompanied by a 13MP ultrawide camera. On the front, there is a 32MP selfie camera discreetly housed within the cutout on the main display. The device is expected to be driven by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and equipped with a 3800mAh battery, capable of supporting 33W fast charging. These specifications align with the earlier reports by XDA-Developers, further solidifying the information surrounding the upcoming Razr model.
Based on SnoopyTech’s leaks, it appears that the Razr 40 Ultra will come with an IP52 water and dust resistance rating. While it may not be the most impressive IP rating in terms of water protection, it signifies that the phone will offer some level of resistance against splashes and sprays. However, it’s important to note that the device may not be fully submersible and should be handled with care in wet environments.
If the leaks about the Razr 40 Ultra’s water and dust resistance are accurate, it suggests that the device may not match the liquid protection offered by Samsung’s foldables. However, the inclusion of dust resistance could give the Razr 40 Ultra an advantage in terms of overall durability. It’s worth noting that Samsung’s current foldable devices do not offer dust resistance, but it’s possible that the company may be working on implementing it in future iterations.
If the leaked information turns out to be accurate, the Razr 40 Ultra may not offer the same level of liquid protection as Samsung’s foldable devices. However, its inclusion of dust resistance could give it an advantage, as Samsung’s foldables currently do not feature this functionality, although it could be in development for future models.
As for pricing, the Razr 40 Ultra is rumored to have a starting price of approximately $1000 for the 8GB+256GB variant in the United States, while in Europe, the same configuration is reported to be priced at €1169. The device will be available in three attractive color options: Viva Magenta, Infinity Black, and Glacier Blue.
