More Moto Smartphoned For OZ Market, Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Model Tipped
Motorola who is stripping share from brands such as TCL, Oppo and Vivo is set to launch a Moto Edge X30 which could be the first smartphone in Australia with this all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset.
The Lenovo-owned smartphone maker has confirmed that it will be announcing an Edge smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest flagship chip on December 9 in some markets, whether Australia will be one of those markets is not known.
There is also a possibility of a Motorola G200 being introduced into the Motorola product range.
Recent leaks reveal its battery certification shows a 5,000mAh cell with a charging capacity of 68.2W, which is one of the highest in Motorola phones.
Storage are reportedly 6GB/8GB/12GB/16GB RAM and 128GB/256GB/512GB storage options.
Chen Jin, Lenovo China’s head of mobile division, revealed that the phone has Gorilla Glass protection on both sides as well as the latest My UX 3.0 software.
Renders that were revealed recently show a hole-punch design with a pretty bezel-less, albeit flat, AMOLED screen that is said to measure 6.67 inches and has support for HDR10+.
On the back, there is a standard triple camera setup said to consist of two 50-megapixel main shooters and a 2MP depth sensor.
The front camera is rumoured to house a whopping 60MP sensor.
There are also talks about a Moto Edge X30 Ultra, however, which could be an even more premium version of the X30, and it could launch on the same day.
Motorola seems to be in a haste to launch its flagships this year, which means we could see the same handsets in Australia by the latest Q2 2022.
