Rumoured Motorola Flagship May Boast 200-Megapixel Camera
Motorola continue to tease the release of a new flagship phone, currently codenamed “Frontier”. General Manager for Lenovo China, Chen Jin, has been subtly hinting at the phone used, most recently via a post on Chinese social media site Weibo.
Motorola have only recently launched the Edge 30 Pro, and the new device is likely to be launched under the title of Edge 30 Ultra globally.
There are two main features that are exciting consumers, the first being the rumoured inclusion of the yet to be released Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ mobile chip, which is reported to be 10% more powerful than the standard 8 Gen 1. Secondly, the new device is said to be fitted with a 200-megapixel camera.
Reports are also speculating that the new device will come with 125W charger support. Jin showed consumers an image of a 125W charger in March of this year, hinting that the new flagship may been coming soon.
Chen Jin’s Weibo post was an ad for several other already released Motorola devices, also asking his followers “Which model are you most looking forward to next?” The post came via an unlisted Motorola phone, as the post just says ‘Motorola Phones’ where it would usually say the model. People are speculating that Jin may have been using the new device.
The announcement of the new device is likely to come after Qualcomm releases the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+, which is due to happen in early May.
It is expected to have a 6.7-inch POLED FHD+ 144Hz display, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage, a 4,500mAh battery with support for 125W wired / 50W wireless charging, a 200MP + 50MP + 12MP triple rear cameras and a 60MP front camera.
