Motorola Razr 40 Ultra pops up and brings confusion to the table

The Motorola Razr 40 Ultra has just surfaced on Geekbench, and thus managed to bring confusion to the table. Why is this confusing? Well, let me explain.

Earlier today, a well-known tipster, Max Jambor, said that two Motorola foldables are coming on June 1. He named those two phones as the Motorola Razr Pro and Motorola Razr Lite. The Razr Lite also surfaced in renders quite recently.

All this goes hand-in-hand with the info Evan Blass shared last year, when he said that two Motorola Razr foldables will be coming in 2023. Everything seemed ready to go, but… the appearance of the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra kind of messed things up.

Is Max Jambor’s info off, or is this the third foldable we’ll get? Well, it’s anyone’s guess at this point, but someone is wrong here. That number ‘40’ is also a bit odd. Why? Well, Motorola already announced the Motorola Edge 40 Pro earlier this month. The ‘40’ branding for this year’s regular smartphone lineup was not expected to be used with the ‘Razr’ foldable lineup.

So, what’s going on here? Well, the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra name may be used in some markets for one of the upcoming foldables. That’s our guess, at least. If we had to guess which one, we’d say the Motorola Razr Pro. So, the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra and Motorola Razr Pro are likely the same phone.

Having said that, the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra managed to score 1,285 points in the single-core benchmark. It scored 3,810 points in the multi-core benchmark.

Geekbench also reveals that the device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. That also goes hand-in-hand with the theory this is the Motorola Razr Pro.

Another tidbit that the listing revealed is the RAM count. This particular variant of the phone has 8GB of RAM, though that doesn’t mean we won’t get more than one version. Android 13 will come pre-installed on the device, as expected.
