Motorola edge 30 Pro product details

On the face of it, and judging by its name, the Motorola edge 30 Pro is a professional high-end phone. But is it really? At least it's cheaper than many other flagships. So let's find out exactly what's going on.

Screen, camera, battery & performance

Motorola started the edge series with stylishly designed smartphones at the top end of the market. It had everything it needed to become the new flagship series. After that, things got a little unclear. More models followed, with numerous variations. Many of them were significantly less progressive and ambitious than the first generation. What remained were the Pro versions; these were inexpensive flagships. Not quite high-end, but still the essential features. Think screen, cameras, battery, and performance. This edge 30 Pro doesn't do badly in that regard. It features a large 6.7-inch OLED display with smooth 144Hz playback, a 50+50+2MP camera setup, a generous 4800mAh battery with 68 Watts of TurboPower charging, and a high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor for powerful performance. So, where's the "catch" here?

edge 30 Pro shortcomings

Zooming in further on the specifications, we see why this edge 30 Pro has a lower starting price than other flagships. The screen may be modern, but it does not have a built-in fingerprint scanner. Lenovo places it on the right side, inside the power button. That's slightly cheaper. And while the camera features an excellent 50MP primary camera, a 50MP ultra-wide angle, and a 2MP depth camera, it lacks a separate zoom lens. Many flagships do have one. Also, due to the big screen size, the battery life is limited to "only" one day. We have nothing but praise for the processor. Especially since it is accompanied by a generous 12GB of RAM, which is more than sufficient.

Main Motorola edge 30 Pro specifications

  • Large 6.7-inch OLED screen with smooth 144Hz display
  • 50+50+2MP camera with 114° ultra-wide angle, depth lens and 8K video
  • 60MP selfie camera with Quad Pixel technology
  • 4800mAh battery with lightning-fast 68W charging + wireless charging
  • 12GB of RAM memory, 256GB of non-expandable storage
  • Powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor
  • Splash resistant IP52 body
  • 5G support for extra fast internet on the go

Suitable for stylus

This package of pluses and minuses yields a flagship phone priced significantly lower than the competition. And if you take a lot of selfies, then the edge 30 Pro is also worth considering. After all, it features an unprecedented high-resolution selfie camera. On the front is a 60MP sensor with Quad Pixel technology. This allows you to shoot well-lit photos and videos in low light. Handy is also that you can charge this edge wirelessly. Put it down on a Qi charger, and it charges without plugging in cables. Finally, you can show off your creative side with a separately available stylus. The edge 30 Pro's screen supports pen input. There is even a separate case with a built-in pen you can buy.

Rumors ·

Phone companies don't like leaks. They are disgusted by them, find them disruptive and deal with leakers head-on. Nowadays, they don't even shy away from legal action. At Lenovo they do things differently. There they leak pictures and information about upcoming phones themselves.

Whether Chen Jin, General Manager of Lenovo, will get into trouble is uncertain. What we do know is that we are looking at the Motorola edge X30. Now it is quite possible that this model is only for the Chinese market. However, a variant of it will get a global launch, possibly as part of the edge 30 series.

Perhaps this will be the Motorola edge 30 Ultra. Renders of it we have seen before and they indeed look very similar to the device in the picture above. The blog post on Weibo further states that this device uses the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and has a 10-bit color screen.

Launch Edge X30

In another post on Weibo we read that the 6.67-inch screen will have a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a Full HD+ resolution of 2400 by 1080 pixels. The dimensions will be 163 x 75.9 x 8.4 millimeters. Lenovo is holding an event on December 9 where it will announce this device. It should then go on sale as early as December 15. Whether this also applies to the global version of the edge 30 Series remains to be seen.

Rumors ·

We may be getting our very first look at the Motorola edge 30 Ultra today. The next high-end flagship from parent company Lenovo is going to look very different than its predecessor.

If the rumors are true, that is. And since the images come from the usually reliable @onleaks we have little reason to believe otherwise. One thing is remarkable though. Motorola has never released an Ultra version of its Edge series before and this should be the first model with a Snapdragon 898 processor.

Motorola edge 30 Ultra render

Personally, we were quite charmed by the looks of the edge 20/Pro, but Lenovo is already taking another direction. By looking at the image above, the edge 30 Ultra gets its own distinct look with a revamped and rounded camera module.

Edge 30 Ultra specifications

Remarkably, the source also mentions some specifications. Starting with a Snapdragon 898 processor. This is somewhat strange because Motorola currently does not use the Snapdragon 888 or 888+ at all. Perhaps that one will be skipped entirely. According to the source, the camera consists of a 50MP main camera, 50MP ultra wide angle and 2MP depth camera.

The most megapixels are found at the front. Motorola is reportedly applying a 60MP selfie camera. That sounds like overkill to us but we like to be surprised. Inside we find a 5000 mAh large battery that can be quick charged with 68W. If that's true then the edge 30 Ultra can be charged considerably faster than many of its competitors.

Announcement edge 30 Ultra

The launch of this Motorola edge 30 Ultra is not expected before 2022. However, we probably won't have to wait very long either. Some sources are thinking of early 2022 as a possible launch date.
