Do you remember the Moto Edge X30? That was the first phone to launch with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SOC, and it launched in December last year. Almost three months after its initial launch in China, the phone is now official in the global market. In Europe and India, this phone is named Motorola Edge 30 Pro, whereas, for the US, it is named Motorola Edge Plus 2022. Compared to the Chinese variant, there is hardly any difference apart from the battery size and charging speed.

In the global market as well, there are two color options named Cosmos Blue and Stardust White. Compared to the X30 Pro in China, the Edge 30 Pro is slightly heavier at 196g (vs. 194g) and thicker at 8.79mm (vs. 8.5mm). There is a Gorilla Glass 5 back with a matte finish. The camera module has a triple camera setup in it, and the fingerprint scanner is present on the side, not under the display.

There is no headphone jack on this phone, so all you get is a USB Type-C port on the bottom. There are stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos and triple microphones.
