We’re counting down the days for the global launch of the Motorola Edge 30 Pro. The phone is already available in China under the Edge X30 moniker. We’ve now come across a few official renders of the Moto Edge 30 Pro ahead of its unveiling later this month.
The renders come courtesy of industry sources quoted by 91Mobiles, showing Gray and Blue variants. These images confirm that the Edge 30 Pro will feature an identical design as the Edge X30, which broke cover in December. The hardware should remain unchanged for the most part, barring a few last-minute changes.
Based on the knowledge that the Motorola Edge 30 Pro is a rebranded variant of the Edge X30, one can paint a decent picture of the device ahead of its global release.
We know the smartphone will feature a 6.7-inch OLED screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support. Among the other key hardware specifications of the smartphone include the octa-core Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, 8/12GB of RAM, 128/256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, and a 60-megapixel hole-punch selfie camera.
Motorola will offer a side-mounted fingerprint sensor with the Edge 30 Pro
The back panel features three cameras, including a 50-megapixel primary sensor, a 50-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Strangely, Motorola isn’t offering an under-display fingerprint sensor with the device, settling for a side-mounted unit instead. The company will package a 5,000mAh battery with the new flagship with support for 68W fast wired charging.
Android 12 will be the default operating system on the global Edge 30 Pro with the latest flavor of MyUX. It’s worth pointing out that Motorola phones sold in China run on MyUI 3.0, which is essentially the regional variant of MyUX.
While we’re just getting to know the Edge 30 Pro, the Lenovo-owned manufacturer is also planning to launch the Edge 30 Ultra fairly soon. However, this variant could be limited to some markets given that it features the same hardware as its Pro sibling. One key difference, as per initial reports, is the marginally larger screen at 6.8-inches. Meanwhile, the display refresh rate remains unchanged at 144Hz.
A recent leak revealed the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra Folio Case, thus confirming the smartphone’s existence. Although we know the Edge 30 Pro will launch in February, the same can’t be said about the Ultra variant. But we cannot rule out the possibility of both flagships launching simultaneously.
