When the Motorola Razr was relaunched in November 2019, there were plenty of tech fans excited to see how Motorola had updated the classic Razr design for the smartphone era. However, once the phone finally launched in early 2020, many were left disappointed with the questionable build quality and the very expensive price tag. Luckily, Motorola is soon to release its do-over – the (unofficially named) Motorola Razr 2.

The Razr 2 is expected to arrive in September and will apparently come with a 6.7" main display, which is 0.5" larger than the current iteration of the Motorola Razr. It's also been rumored that the secondary external screen on the Razr 2 will be larger than the current Razr's 2.7" secondary display, but the source hasn't specified by how much.

With 5G as the future of smartphone technology, it was disappointing when the original reboot of the Razr arrived with standard 4G capacity. However, there have been rumors that the Motorola Razr 2 will be 5G-capable, as it'll reportedly be using the Snapdragon 765 SoC. 

There have also been reports that the Motorola Razr 2 will have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. While it seems that the Razr 2 will be sticking with the single-camera unit design, it will be given a megapixel boost from 16MP to 48MP. The selfie camera will also be taken from 5MP to 20MP.
