Motorola teases 200 MP camera phone as rumors of new Razr persist

Motorola has teased a phone with a 200 MP camera if, for any reason, you are not happy with the megapixel count on your current one.

Using its Weibo account, Motorola has shown images of what would be the first phone to have a 200 MP camera on the back. This is apart from a likely third-gen foldable Razr, which Motorola’s general manager, Shen Jin, recently posted about on Weibo.

We heard the 200 MP camera smartphone is being developed using the codename “Frontier,” and even though Motorola would like to keep it entirely under wraps, leaked images have emerged in the past. For example, WinFuture posted some render of the device, accompanied by a list of specs. The camera is reportedly by Samsung, which was announced last September. It is joined by a 50 MP ultrawide camera and a 12 MP telephoto lens. There is a 60 MP selfie camera on the front.

Apart from the record-setting camera, the new Motorola phone is rumored to sport a 6.67-inch OLED display with a 144 Hz refresh rate. Supply power is a 4,500 mAh battery that can accept 125 W from a cable charger and 50 W from wireless charging.

Jin apparently referenced a new Razr folding phone last year, with images leaking sometime this month. While we are still looking at a clamshell design but with some changes in the appearance. For example, Motorola has eliminated the very prominent chin, which should make the device look sleeker. The power button bearing the fingerprint sensor has now moved to the right of the phone.

Inside, Motorola appears to be using the new Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, recently announced. The massive camera module will also use a similar chip. It is nice to see Motorola moving away from the midrange chips that held the former Razr phones back with slow performance.

Motorola has not mentioned when either of the two phones will be officially released or whether they will be sold outside China. However, Motorola released the Edge Plus in China and then expanded its availability to the US in 2022. If the new phones follow the same release pattern, US buyers may get them this year or in 2023.
