According to a well-known analyst, the Motorola Razr 2 will include larger displays than its predecessor. This information comes from Ross Young, who already shared quite a bit of info regarding the Motorola Razr 2, Galaxy Fold 2, and Galaxy Note 20 series.

The Motorola Razr 2 will include larger displays, its inner display will measure 6.7 inches

The analyst says that both inner and outer displays on the Motorola Razr 2 will be larger. The inner display will measure 6.7 inches, the same as the one on the Galaxy Z Flip. The outer display will also be larger, but Mr. Young did not share the specifics.

The Motorola Razr 2 is expected to launch in Q3 or Q4 this year. The Motorola Razr was announced in mid-November. The current global health crisis could affect the release of the Motorola Razr 2, even though one report suggested it may launch sooner than expected.

A general manager of Lenovo South Africa, Thibault Dousson, suggested that the device may launch as early as September. That is quite an optimistic prediction, and an unexpected one.

The device will not include Ultra Thin Glass (UTG), though. Its display will be made out of plastic, it seems. That information came from Ross Young as well, last month.

That means that the display on the Motorola Razr 2 will still feel mushier than the one on the Galaxy Z Flip. The Galaxy Z Flip does include UTG, despite the fact it has a plastic layer on top of it.

UTG makes the display feel a lot sturdier, and more similar to your regular smartphone

The display does feel a bit sturdier, and more similar to your regular smartphone display. Both the Motorola Razr and Galaxy Z Flip displays scratch up quite easily, though.

The Motorola Razr did deliver in terms of general looks, but it had several issues when it comes to its build. Motorola will surely look to improve the design of the follow-up.

Consumers will also expect a more compelling spec sheet to be included in the second-gen model. The Motorola Razr was in development for quite a long time, which is why its specifications are a bit dated.

The Motorola Razr 2 is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated foldable smartphones of the year. The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to arrive in August, and the Motorola Razr 2 could follow in September.

We're not sure if Motorola is planning to announce this phone at IFA or not, but it's possible. IFA will take place this year, though it will be open only to journalists. It could be a perfect venue for Motorola to announce the Razr 2.

All in all, we'll see. One thing is for sure, though, the second-gen Razr will include larger displays. That hopefully doesn't mean that the phone will be much larger, though.
