Motorola management claim that they have grown market share in Australia by “Over 50%” but despite repeated requests they have failed to respond to how they have achieved the growth and what models are delivering growth.
What we have ascertained is that the Company that is owned by Chinese brand Lenovo is planning several new models this year after rolling out their new 5G Motorola Edge 30 Pro last week.
According to briefings done in Australia the smartphone is planning new models under the Edge 30 branding, they currently have the code names Frontier, Dubai, and Miami.
In the value market there is the Moto G Stylus 2022 (codenamed Milan) and Moto G22 (codenamed Hawaii+) whether these will be launched in Australia is unknown.
The Motorola Edge 30 Pro was originally launched in China as the Motorola Edge X30, it’s seen as a worthy contender in the sub $1,000 5G market.
Dubai, Miami, and Dubai+ are the codenames for the upcoming Edge 30 series.
The Miami model is expected to debut under the Motorola Edge 30 branding, it’s tipped to be a Lite model.

It has 2 x 2.6GHz Cortex A78 cores, 6 x 2.0GHz Cortex-A55 cores, and a Mali G79 GPU.
It will feature the same screen and similar cameras as the Edge 30.
It will house a 5,000mAh battery and carry support for a stylus like the Edge 30 Pro.
There is no information on the moniker of the device. It is expected to debut in Q3 (probably after the Edge 30 Ultra) branding
