The Motorola Razr 3 5G (2022) is expected to be a high-end foldable smartphone, and it is likely to be priced accordingly. However, it is also likely to be one of the most advanced foldable smartphones on the market when it is released.
The foldable smartphone has already been churning in the rumour mills for a long time. The forthcoming Moto Razr 3 comes with a codename of “Maven”.

Alleged Motorola Razr 3 Leaked in New Video, Shows Chinless Design and Creaseless Foldable Screen
A new design video of the upcoming Motorola Razr 3 foldable smartphone has been shared by notable tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) on Twitter. The video shows that the Razr 3 has a new design with no chin at the bottom of the display, no crease on the inner folding screen, and a centrally-placed hole-punch camera on the inner display. The fingerprint scanner is also likely to be integrated into the power button. The Razr 3 is also likely to retain the large external display.
The new design of the Razr 3 is a significant departure from the previous Razr foldable smartphones. The removal of the chin and the crease on the inner display makes for a more seamless and immersive user experience.

Motorola Moto Razr 3 battery details
In another report, some specifications of the upcoming Motorola foldable smartphone have surfaced online. According to this report, the Motorola smartphone will likely launch with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The foldable smartphone could also sport an AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The report also shares the supposed battery capacity details of this handset.
Razr 3 Rumored to Have 2800mAh Battery, Lower Capacity Than Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
According to tipster Digital Chat Station, the upcoming Motorola Razr 3 foldable smartphone could feature a 2800mAh battery. This is the same battery capacity as the previous Razr 5G foldable smartphone.
Despite the same battery capacity, Motorola claims that the Razr 3 will offer better battery life than its predecessor. However, the battery capacity of the Razr 3 is significantly lower than the 3595mAh battery capacity of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Razr 3’s main competitor.
It is unclear how Motorola will be able to achieve better battery life with the same battery capacity as the Razr 5G. It is possible that Motorola has made some optimizations to the Razr 3’s hardware and software to improve battery life. However, it is also possible that the Razr 3 may have shorter battery life than the Galaxy Z Flip 4 due to its smaller battery capacity.
