Motorola has not produced an Android smartphone with flagship, top specifications in recent years. But during the introduction of the newest processors from Qualcomm, the company said it will change in 2020. Motorola has already unveiled the modernized Razr with a folding screen, but it has a midrange processor compared to the best and fastest phones of 2019. Yet the Razr is certainly one step higher in design and overall concept than your typical Moto G- series telephone.
And future Motorola devices will include the Snapdragon 865 and 765 platforms. "Thanks to the new technologies announced today, we have new premium products to announce in early 2020," said Sergio Buniac of Motorola on stage at the Snapdragon Summit in Hawaii. Motorola plans to launch products worldwide with the 765 (which offers integrated 5G connectivity), and has promised to release the "fastest phone on the Qualcomm flagship platform". So that it has the 865 processor. Motorola promises 5G speeds of more than 5 Gbps, which goes far beyond what we have seen in real testing. So take that with a pinch of salt.
Motorola also noted during today's event that the company has remained profitable for five consecutive quarters, demonstrating that its current strategy – offering competing phones at prices well below the typical cost of flagships – resonates with consumers. But it is clear that Moto wants to prove that it can innovate in terms of performance and at the same time keep its activities on a good track. Do not expect these advanced phones to come in at the usual wallet-friendly prices from Motorola. The Razr of $ 1,499 already meant a big deviation.
