Motorola, which Lenovo owns, has introduced its latest flagship smartphone, the Edge 30 Pro, to the nation. The phone is a rebranded version of the Moto Edge X30, released in China last year. The Motorola Edge 30 Pro has a 6.7-inch OLED display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU. The Android 12 operating system powers the company’s flagship smartphone, and the company pledges to provide Android OS upgrades and quarterly security patches for the next two years.
Price and Availability
Motorola Edge 30 Pro costs Rs 49,999 and is available in Cosmos Blue and Stardust White. Starting March 4, the smartphone will be available online on Flipkart and offline at authorized retail shops across the country.
The business provides a flat discount of Rs 5,000 on SBI credit cards as part of the launch offerings. Jio has a Rs 10,000 deal. Customers may also take advantage of no-cost EMIs beginning at Rs 5,559 from prominent banks.
Motorola Edge 30 Pro Specifications
Let’s look at everything the Motorola Edge 30 Pro has to offer. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphone comes with two RAM (8GB/12GB) and three storage (128GB/256GB/512GB) configurations. The Edge 30 Pro runs Android 12-based MyUI 3.0, which enthusiasts of sleek, clutter-free UI will like. The smartphone comes with the typical Motorola software delights and a three-year security update guarantee. Motorola has also promised Android versions 13 and 14 for the flagship.
Design and Display
An OLED screen with HDR10+ certification is at the heart of the Edge 30 Pro. It has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ 144Hz 10bit OLED screen. It is made with Gorilla Glass 3 instead of the Gorilla Glass 5 on the Edge 20 Pro, which makes it less durable. It has a hole in the middle to use the 60MP selfie camera. In addition, Motorola switched from a metal chassis to a plastic frame for the Edge 30 Pro.
This frame is easily smeared and damaged, and on its right side are the volume rocker and power key, the latter doubles as a fingerprint reader. These buttons provide enough feedback, but they are a little too high for comfort. The volume controls, in particular.
Moving on to the back of the Motorola Edge 30 Pro, we get a Gorilla Glass 5-covered panel with a triple camera system comprised of 50MP main (with OIS), 50MP ultrawide, and 2MP depth sensor units. Motorola dropped the Edge 20 Pro’s 8MP periscope telephoto camera.
The edges of the panel are sufficiently curvy to provide a comfortable grip. However, the cover soon gathered up fingerprints in our brief time with the phone. The camera island’s plastic plate is likewise shiny and smeared.
The Edge 30 Pro also has a 5G connection, NFC, dual speakers, Dolby Atmos compatibility, an IP52 water-repellent exterior, and a 4,800 mAh battery that can draw up to 68W of power from the USB-C connector. That’s a significant improvement over the Edge 20 Pro’s 30W charging speed. The smartphone also supports 15W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging, something the Edge 20 Pro did not have.
