The Motorola Razr 2020 will get a 5G-enabled variant, but it seems like this variant will be exclusively available in China only. The phone is reportedly going to be on display at the China Industrial Design Exhibition in Wuhan, China, at the end of March. It is unlikely that the variant will be available in other regions, but things could change further down the road. As of right now, the Motorola Razr uses the Snapdragon 710 chipset, which is a mid-range chipset. However, the chipset does not support 5G, which means Motorola will need to pop in a new chipset.
Motorola Razr 5G
For the Motorola Razr 5G, the company would probably feature a Snapdragon 765G, one of the newer chipsets that Qualcomm revealed in December. It’s still a mid-range Snapdragon 700-series chipset, but it boasts more power than it’s predecessor, and most importantly, it supports 5G. There is no confirmation about the chipset the 5G version of the Razr will use. It could come with either one of the three processors that support 5G – the Snapdragon 765G, the Samsung Exynos 980, or the MediaTek Dimensity 1000L.
Since the variant is likely to launch in China exclusively, we may see it come with the Samsung or the MediaTek chipset since they are more prevalent in that region. The original Motorola Razr foldable comes with a 2510mAh battery, making battery life a huge concern for users. Fans are also hoping that the 5G variant will come with a bigger battery.
