Motorola renewed its Razr series of clamshell phones by launching the Motorola Razr with a foldable screen in 2019. It was a 4G LTE device powered by the Snapdragon 710 chip. In 2020, the Lenovo-owned brand unveiled the Motorola Razr 5G with the Snapdragon 765G SoC onboard. Several leaks have claimed that the Razr 2022 will be equipped with a flagship SoC. Today, the company officially confirmed which processor will be present under the hood of the Razr 2022.
