Motorola’s 2021 has been exciting, with the launch of Moto G 5G, Moto G Stylus, and Moto Edge Plus. Leaks surrounding its upcoming foldable – the Razr 40 series – have also been making the rounds. The latest leak pertains to the high-end Razr 40 Ultra and its specs.
XDA Developers has unearthed new information regarding the flagship Motorola Razr 40 Ultra. The phone is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor with up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
The phone’s main display is anticipated to be an HDR AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2640 x 1080 and a refresh rate of 120Hz. Some earlier leaks indicated the refresh rate could be up to 144Hz. The cover screen is expected to have a resolution of 1056 x 1066.
The cover display of the Razr 40 Ultra may have more functionality than just displaying the time and notifications. Reportedly, the phone can launch apps on its cover display, but not all apps may be available by default. Some apps may not be optimized for the screen’s size, but users may have the option to force them to run. XDA Developers discovered a warning that makes this clear.
The Razr 40 Ultra may also feature features similar to Samsung’s flex mode, as it knows when it’s half open.
The foldable phone’s camera setup is expected to include two outer cameras and a selfie camera. The primary sensor is rumored to be a 12MP Sony IMX563, while the secondary sensor is a wide-angle 13MP SK Hynix Hi1336. The selfie camera may be a 32MP OmniVision OV32B40.
The phone will feature NFC support, a fingerprint sensor, and a variant model. The latter is rumored to have dual-SIM, eSIM, and possibly ultra-wideband permission. The phone could be available in “Barberry,” “Black,” and “Blue,” with Barberry being a maroon color similar to Motorola’s previous Viva Magenta colorway.
We can expect the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra and the base Razr 40 to launch in the US based on earlier leaks. Reports suggest that Motorola may launch the phones on June 1.
