Motorola will announce its next major device, which the company says will “flip the smartphone experience once again,” next month. Earlier today, the company sent out media invites asking journalists to set time aside on September 9th.
The teaser doesn’t provide too many hints about what we can expect, but between the included GIF and Motorola’s choice of words, it’s likely we’ll see the company announce a new version of its Razr foldable display phone.
Thanks to XDA Developers, we’ve known since May that Motorola has been working on a new Razr. The website published a report that said the device would improve on the current Razr by adding more RAM, additional internal storage, and a higher capacity battery. XDA also said the flip phone would include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 processor, making it 5G-capable.
Improved specs could go a long way toward making Motorola’s latest foldable compelling where its predecessor was not. In his review of the Razr, Engadget’s Chris Velazco found the phone suffered from average battery life, a dim and low-resolution screen, and lackluster cameras.
A $1,500 price tag didn’t help things either. Whether Motorola is able to make a better device this time around is something we’ll have to wait until September 9th to see.
Dell’s New Business Chromebook Gives High-End Specs Plus Extra Security
Dell and Google by this time last year unveiled the first enterprise-grade Chromebook. Both machines offered extra security and organizational features built for businesses. Now, Google and Dell are ready to share the next generation: the Latitude 7410 Chromebook Enterprise.
The Latitude is the first Chromebook that can be configured as a laptop or 2-in-1. You’ll be able to choose between a black lightweight carbon fiber material or a grey machined aluminum finish. Overall though, this still looks like your standard company-issued laptop.
While previous versions packed up to 8th-generation Intel Core i7 CPUs, the Latitude 7410 comes with the 10th-generation Intel Core i7. It offers up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM (less than last year’s models).
Google and Dell claim it has the longest battery life of any 2-in-1 Chromebook and of any 10th Gen Intel Chromebook. It boasts up to 19 hours of battery life, plus you can get a boost with an ExpressCharge — one hour charges the battery up to 80 percent, and 20 minutes charges it up to 35 percent.
