Lenovo-owned Motorola has been reported to be working on a revamped version of its iconic Razr smartphone. The foldable smartphone by Motorola will be launched later this year. As of now, we have only seen some concept renders of the upcoming Moto Razr and some speculations surrounding have surfaced online.
And now, a report about the Motorola‘s Foldable Razr smartphone suggests that users will be able to scroll content on the secondary screen of the device when the handset is unfolded. In addition to this, Motorola’s revamped Moto Razr will allow some of the apps to run properly on the secondary display.
The report, which first surfaced online on XDA Developers, said that Motorola’s upcoming Moto Razr will not have the kind of Android experience that can be found on other foldable devices like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. The report further added that the secondary display of the smartphone will only showcase the content from a few pre-installed apps on the device.
However, Motorola will be restricting the functionality of the secondary display for apps like Moto Display, Moto Actions and Moto Camera. The report also suggests that the secondary display of the smartphone will also act as a trackpad, so users will be able to scroll through web pages on Chrome, and browse through ‘Recents’ using it. The display will also show six quick settings that will reportedly appear in the form of tiles. But as of now, it has not been made clear if users will be able to scroll down and look at more quick settings on the secondary display.
When the camera app of the smartphone will be accessed, users will be able to tap on the main display of Moto Razr in order to click photos and they can use the swipe up gesture to zoom in.
The Google Assistant animation will also be visible to users on the secondary display of the new Moto Razr smartphone when the digital assistant will be activated. However, they will have to enable this feature themselves. So if you end up buying the device, you can choose to have this option if only you think it is useful.
But then, if you choose to not have the Google Assistant animation enabled, you will have to enter the password on flipping open the smartphone.
The company may also add a feature that will enable users to set different wallpapers for the main display and the secondary display. Furthermore, Motorola is also testing features that would show users notifications, a clock and a tool to control media from the secondary display.
