Motorola really made the hype when the company announced the amazing folding device, the Moto Razr. Not only did the phone speak to the older generation, but it also did with a modern design. the entire idea behind the device was to strike the nostalgic factor. Perhaps in focusing on that, they actually made a device which was mediocre at best. With the high price tag, it simply could not compete with the beefy Samsung Galaxy Flip, that was certain.
The phone itself supported specs which weren’t up to the mark. With the mid-tier Snapdragon processor, the lower quality, smaller display and less than good battery life, the phone was only a show-piece at best. Now, obviously, over the year, technology has caught up. We have better foldable displays, higher rated batteries with a smaller form factor. We see this tweet from Ross Young, a credible source about the display for the next Moto Razr 2.
Ready for a new display leak? Motorola Razr 2 size was changed, will now be 6.85" unless it is changed again. This delays the launch some as well. Still expected in Q1'21 for now.

Now, according to the leak, the new Moto Razr would have a bigger display. Before it was rumoured that it would be a 6.67-inch panel but now the sources say otherwise. According to the tweet, Motorola would be going for an even bigger, 6.85-inch display. This would be much bigger than the 6.2-inch panel found on the one from this year.
Additionally, the tweet comments that this would set the production back by some time. While that is true, we still do not have much on when it would be launched. According to previous reports, the launch would be on track with the rumoured date being some time in the first quarter of 2021. Till then, we’ll see if they can actually counter Samsung, a company which has advanced quite a lot in this form factor too.
