Motorola Maven, thought to be the upcoming foldable Razr-branded smartphone from the Lenovo-owned brand, has leaked in photos from a reliable tipster. The Maven will be the third-generation handset from Razr, and there have been a few leaks about the Motorola Razr 3 in the past. The latest report claims smartphone will bear a greater resemblance to the Galaxy Z Flip 3 than to the Razr or the Razr 5G handsets. The Motorola Maven is expected to sport a dual rear camera setup and is said to come with different memory configurations. The China release of the handset will reportedly precede the global rollout. The foldable smartphone from Motorola will be available in two colour options. The Motorola Razr 3 was first teased in December.
The Motorola Razr 3 is said to be codenamed Maven, as per a report in collaboration with Evan Blass aka @evleaks and 91Mobiles. The handset is said to be heading for a summer release. Photos of the smartphone were obtained by the publication as well. The photos indicate that the Maven will sport a “boxier and more squared off” design as compared to its predecessors, and more closely resemble the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. For optics, the handset will feature a dual camera setup. The foldable smartphone is expected to come in two colour options — Quartz Black and Tranquil Blue.
