The next Motorola Razr could pose a real threat to the Galaxy Z Flip

Motorola is going all out on the next Razr.

What you need to know

  • Motorola is reportedly developing the Razr 3 to be a true flagship foldable.
  • The device will allegedly feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 120Hz display.
  • It could feature up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

Motorola is hard at work on its Razr successor, and while we've heard some bits and pieces here and there, we may know more about the upcoming Galaxy Z Flip 3 competitor.

XDA-Developers has caught wind of some information of the device, tentatively dubbed the "Motorola Razr 3," thanks to their sources, who have indicated that it will be a true flagship. In contrast to the Razr 5G, which features a midrange Snapdragon 765 chipset, the Razr 3 will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Other specs include up to 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, NFC (which isn't always a given with Motorola phones), and possibly Ultra-Wideband (UWB) support. It will likely launch with Android 12.

While XDA couldn't confirm much information about the displays, they indicate that the main display will likely be a Full HD AMOLED with a 120Hz refresh rate. Motorola may also ditch the notch in favor of a hole-punch selfie camera. It's not known what changes will come to the external display.

Details about the external camera setup are also unknown. Given that the current model only features one camera, we can hope Motorola will equip the phone with a more versatile setup featuring at least an ultrawide sensor. However, an additional telephoto camera would give it a leg up over the Galaxy Z Flip 3.

So far, XDA's information lines up with one Lenovo executive's claims that the next-generation Razr will feature an upgraded processor and design. It sounds exactly like what Motorola needs to compete with one of Samsung's best foldable phones, even ahead of its successor, which will likely feature the same chipset.

Of course, Motorola still has to address a few things to make the phone truly competitive, including software support, battery life, charging speed, and price. That said, we will hopefully learn more soon as we're expecting the Razr 3 to launch sometime this year.

Protect your kids by setting up a supervised YouTube account

YouTube Kids has been around since 2015 and has grown into a great place for children to explore what YouTube has to offer safely. In 2021, the company is expanding ways for younger viewers to see more of what's available from the streaming service, along with a more mature interface with supervised accounts. Instead of a separate app, these accounts will use the official YouTube app, so knowing how to set up a supervised account for kids on Youtube is important. If you want to protect your child from some of the less than appropriate content that can be seen on YouTube, then you'll want to be sure to have the supervised account properly set up. YouTube announced supervised accounts as a way for kids aged 9+ to see to more of what the service offers while still under the guidelines set by their parent.

Whitestone Dome screen protectors return for the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro

These accessories don't come cheap. What you need to know Whitestone has launched new tempered glass screen protectors for the Google Pixel 6 series. The screen protectors are more expensive because they use liquid adhesive. Whitestone sells these accessories for as low as $45. The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro already feature Gorilla Glass Victus for both its front and back panel, which is touted as the toughest phone glass available. But that should not give you full confidence that the phones will withstand repeated drops. While you can always buy a screen protector, your options for capable items are likely to be limited due to a number of factors, including the phones' curved display. Fortunately, Whitestone is now back with its tempered glass screen protectors for Google's best Android phones after skipping the Pixel 4 and 5 series (via 9to5Google ). Whitestone has a reputation for providing some of the highest-quality accessories on the market for protecting

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE review: Better phone, worse price

This upgrade is an uphill battle for Samsung thanks to steep competition. It's hard to believe that it's been a year and a half since Samsung redefined the "flagship killer" concept with the Galaxy S20 FE . At the time, the phone blew us away with its quality, delivering a true flagship experience for a significantly lower price than a "regular" Galaxy S20. The Galaxy S21 FE was rumored to be released the entire second half of 2021, and now it's finally here. The Galaxy S21 FE debuts with some of the expected upgrades over its predecessor but still retains many of the points that made the S20 FE a more affordable device. You won't find a brand new camera array on this phone when compared to 2020's device — that's a 12MP sensor for the main and ultra-wide lenses, while an 8MP sensor still resides behind the 3X telephoto lens — but Samsung has upgraded the styling to be more in line with the Galaxy S21 and the rumored look of the Galaxy
