Motorola kicked off the year by releasing the Edge 30 Pro flagship phone powered by a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. And now, the Lenovo-backed company has released its sibling, but it’s a mid-range phone. The newly-announced Motorola Edge 30 ticks all the boxes you would probably look forward to in a mid-range phone – a 144Hz AMOLED screen, 50MP triple camera setup with OIS, and fast charging support.
Motorola Edge 30 has been launched in the global markets. It’s coming soon to various markets, including Europe, Asia, Australia, India, Latin America and the Middle East. With a 6.79mm thickness, it’s the slimmest 5G phone (the camera bump is excluded). Let’s get more into what the new mid-range phone from Motorola has to offer in terms of price and specifications.
Motorola Edge 30 specifications
The Edge 30 midranger from Motorola has a 6.5-inch AMOLED with a FullHD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, and the refresh rate goes up to 144Hz. It’s a 10-bit panel with HDR10+ support and a DCI-P3 colour gamut. Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus drives the phone, paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB of inbuilt storage.
Motorola Edge 30 features a triple camera setup that includes a 50MP primary camera with All-Pixel Autofocus and OIS. The main sensor is joined with a 50MP ultrawide lens with a 114-degree field of view and a 2MP depth camera. Both primary and ultrawide lenses can shoot 8k videos at 30fps and 4k videos at up to 60fps. There’s a 32MP selfie shooter on the front, which sits inside a punch-hole cutout.
The Motorola phone ships with Android 12 out of the box. It packs a 4,020mAh battery with support for 33W TurboPower charger that comes inside the box. There’s no 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone is IP52 certified for basic dust and splash resistance. It comes with connectivity features such as 5G, Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth v5.2, NFC, and a USB Type-C port.
