This is the upcoming mid-range phone from Motorola
In February, Motorola launched its premium flagship phone named the Edge 30 Pro globally, powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SOC. The phone launched at $999 and featured a 144Hz OLED, two 50MP sensors on the rear, 68W fast charging, and more. Just like the Edge 20 series of last year, there are more phones under the Edge 30 series that are launching soon. One of those phones is named the Motorola Edge 30. It is a mid-range device that succeeds the Motorola Edge 20 of last year.
Speaking of the specs, the Edge 30 has a 6.55-inch P-OLED with a 144Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The SOC is Snapdragon 778+, and as the name suggests, this is a minor upgrade over the Snapdragon 778, which also powered the Motorola Edge 20. The upgrades include a slightly higher CPU clock speed of 2.5GHz (vs. 2.4GHz) and also a 20% boost in GPU performance. There is 6GB or 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage.
In terms of cameras, the Edge 30 has two 50MP sensors on the rear, where one is for the wide lens and the other for the ultrawide lens. The third camera has a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone has a 32MP camera. Finally, there is a 4,020mAh battery, 30W fast charging, and Android 12 runs out of the box with MyUX on top.
Comparing Edge 30 to Edge 20, you get a smaller display, but the refresh rate and the resolution remain the same. The SOC is slightly better, there is a slightly larger battery, and the cameras are downgraded this time. The Edge 20 features a 108MP primary sensor, a 16MP ultrawide, and an 8MP 3X telephoto. The camera setup on Edge 30 is not as versatile as that of Edge 20.
We do not know the pricing yet, but since the Motorola Edge 20 launched last year at ₹29,999 / €499, expect the starting price of Edge 30 to be more than that.
