Motorola has been slowly re-entering the flagship phone market with its new smartphones for some time now, and it looks like they finally might be up to something really great with their latest flagship, the Moto Edge X30—the world’s first smartphone to feature the Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 along with a 60-Megapixel selfie camera.
Motorola’s new flagship phone comes with a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with support for a maximum refresh rate of up to 144Hz, along with a touch sampling rate of 576Mhz. The display houses a 60MP selfie camera which is a 1/2.8-inch sensor and 1.2μm pixels within a hole-punch cut out at the top of the display.
When it comes to the back of the device, the Motorola Edge X30 features a pill-shaped camera bump, which houses its three cameras, including a 50MP primary camera with OmniVision’s OV50A 1/1.55-inch image sensor and OIS, a 50MP ISOCELL S5KGM1 ultra-wide shooter, paired with a 2MP depth sensor.
Apart from this, the device will be powered by a 5000mAh battery with support for fast charging speeds up to 68W with a power brick that ships with the phone, while in terms of the software, the phone ships with Android 12 out of the box with promise for three years of software update down the line.
The Motorola Edge X30 is expected to go on sale in China starting from December 15 and will be available in four models, including:
- 8GB+128GB model priced at CNY 3,199 (about Rs 38,000),
- 8GB+256GB model priced at CNY 3,399 (about Rs 40,500),
- 12GB+256GB model priced at CNY 3,599 (about Rs 42,900),
- 12GB+256GB Edge X30 “Special Edition” which features a 60MP under-display selfie camera priced at 3,999 yuan (about Rs 47,600).
While Motorola still hasn’t announced details on its global availability yet, we can expect the Edge X30 to make its international debut under a different name sometime shortly. Nevertheless, it seems like Motorola might be ready to give other smartphones a run for their money.
