Motorola has announced an event to present the Moto Edge 30 Pro, the most powerful mobile in its long history with the highest performance chipset from Qualcomm and the latest version of Android.
Motorola’s new smartphone will be presented on February 24 and it is believed that it will basically be the international version of the Edge X30 announced for China. Motorola has some of the best selling models for the entry range, but here we are talking about something else, its flagship for 2022.
To begin with, the Moto Edge 30 Pro will be one of the first to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, the new generation of chipsets with which Qualcomm wants to cut the performance advantage of the Apple A The SoC is accompanied by 8 or 12 Gbytes of LPDDR5 memory and 128 or 256 Gbytes of UFS 3.1 storage.
We expect Motorola to repeat the high level for the screen, a multi-touch OLED 6.7-inch diagonal, FHD+ resolution and 144 Hz refresh rate. It will support HDR10+ for maximum brightness above of 1000 nits.
As for the camera system, Motorola will mount triple sensor in the main one and a front one with a tremendous resolution of 60 megapixels. If the basic versions will have the typical cutout on the screen to house the selfie camera, a special version would release the under-screen camera technology.

The images added with the announcement of the event show a special group of accessories to enhance the terminal. One of them is a stylus that is unknown if it will be pressure sensitive or a simple capacitive one. The second is a folio type cover that, in addition to serving as protection, allows it to be placed as a support to use it comfortably on a desk. When the case is closed on the screen, a central strip allows the terminal to provide an always-on display function with time, date, notifications and other information.
This type of accessory is already offered by other manufacturers, although we do not know if Motorola will include them by default. As for software, it will be updated to the latest with Android 12 and its own MYUI 3.0 interface. Versions and prices are unknown. We leave you those of the Edge X30 in China to give you an idea, although we fear that in the international market they will be superior:

- 8 GB of RAM / 256 GB for storage: 535 dollars to change.
- 12 GB of RAM / 256 GB for storage: 565 dollars to change.
- Special Edition with camera under screen, with 12 GB of RAM / 256 GB for storage: 630 dollars to change.
