Additionally, a smaller secondary screen (600 x 800 pixels) will be placed on the upper half of the back panel (similar to the second CSTN display on the original RAZR V3). It will display useful notifications, text messages, caller IDs, etc. A camera and fingerprint sensor is placed on the top and bottom of the second display, respectively.
The upcoming handset could be powered by a 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor along with Adreno 616 GPU, up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage. It is likely to run the latest Android OS. Recently, Google announced that it is bringing support for foldable phones. The next version of Android will allow smartphones to run three apps simultaneously.
