Motorola is preparing a new flagship model for the global market. The model is based on the Motorola Edge X30 launched in China at the end of last year. The latter is known as the first smartphone to sport the much-powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip. As for the upcoming handset, the new machine is called Motorola Edge 30 Pro. 91mobiles published its leaked renders.
The renders provided by 91mobiles show that the design for the Motorola Edge 30 Pro is almost identical to the X30. But this also means that it contradicts the previously leaked renders. For instance, we can see that Motorola moves the fingerprint reader under the display (the X30 fingerprint reader is on the side), and re-adjusted the logo position on the back.
One of the two batches of renders may be inaccurate. But there is also a thesis that Motorola is planning to release two phones.
In terms of performance, according to previous benchmark results, the Motorola Edge 30 Pro is still powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The latter integrates an Adreno 730 GPU and is paired with 12GB of RAM. It is expected to be equipped with up to 256GB of internal storage space.
Other than that, the Motorola Edge 30 Pro should have a similar configuration to the Edge X30. So besides the new-generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, it ought to come with a 6.7-inch OLED FHD+ punch-hole display with a refresh rate of 144Hz and touch sampling of 576Hz. The display’s resolution is 2400×1080 pixels, it supports 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, HDR10+, and an in-screen fingerprint sensor.
Under the hood, we’ll find a 5000mAh battery with 68W fast charging support. On the back, the main camera will include a 50MP primary OV50A40 sensor with f/1.88 aperture, a 5MP ultra-wide-angle lens, along a 2-megapixel third sensor. Whereas on the opposite side, the phone will carry a whopping 60MP selfie shooter.
The overall dimensions of the phone are 163.56 X 75.95 X 8.49 mm and it weighs 194 grams.
Generally talking, the Motorola Edge X30 seems to be a high-end smartphone with no shortcomings. But recently, our friends at GizChina found more than one reasons why the phone fails. For instance, it’s the system. We know that Motorola doesn’t offer system updates for a few years. So those who want to buy the X30 know it will not get updates forever.
