As confirmed earlier, Motorola has expanded its Edge series and launched the high-end Edge 30 Ultra in India. It has already launched in the global market last week. The phone is the world’s first to feature a 200MP camera and is actually the rebranded Moto X30 Pro launched in China last month. Here’s a look at more details.
Motorola Edge 30 Ultra: Specs and Features
The Edge 30 Ultra adopts a new design, which includes a rectangular camera bump at the back and a curved punch-hole display. While this resembles the Xiaomi 11 series, it appears pretty refreshing for a Motorola phone.
The front has a 6.67-inch Endless Edge OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 1250 nits of peak brightness, a 360Hz touch sampling rate, 10-bit colors, and HDR10+. The display also supports Edge Lighting, which lights up the phone for notifications, incoming calls, and more. The display also includes an in-display fingerprint scanner and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It has the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset onboard, along with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Speaking of the primary highlight, we have a 200MP main camera with the Samsung HP1 sensor and OIS. It has a 1/1.22″ sensor, 0.64μm pixel size, and 16-in-1 Ultra Pixel Binning tech. This is accompanied by a 50MP ultra-wide lens (doubling as a maco camera too) and a 12MP portrait camera. The front snapper stands at 60MP with support for the Quad Pixel Technology. There’s support for 8K videos, slow-motion videos, Long Exposure, Live filters, Dual Capture, Night Vision, Portrait mode, and more camera features.
The Edge 30 Ultra features a 4,610mAh battery with 125W TurboPower fast charging, which is yet another attraction and can provide a day’s charge in just 7 minutes. It also comes with 50W wireless charging and 10W wireless power sharing. It runs near-stock Android 12. Motorola has guaranteed 3 years of major software updates and 4 years of security updates.
What’s more, you get dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, IP52 water resistance, and Linear X-Axis Vibration. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax, Bluetooth version 5.2, 4X4 MIMO, USB Type-C, 13 5G bands, Dual-SIM support, and NFC, among other things.
