Motorola is launching its first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphone next week. The Moto Edge X30 could also be the world’s first smartphone to use Qualcomm’s flagship 4nm chipset. It is worth noting that Motorola didn’t adopt the Snapdragon 888 SoC until the recent Moto G200.
According to a post on Weibo, the Motorola Edge X30 will be unveiled in China on December 9 at 07:30 pm local time. Motorola’s teaser doesn’t reveal any other details about the device apart from the fact that it will use a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC.
While Motorola hasn’t confirmed information about the Edge X30, the phone has been leaked in the past. The device will sport a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification.
The device is expected to pack a 5000 mAh battery with around 68W/ 69W fast charging support. Other details about the device will likely include a 60 MP selfie camera on the front. We could also see two 50 MP rear cameras paired with a 2 MP depth sensor.
Motorola is also launching a second phone alongside the Edge X30. The device is touted as the Moto Edge S30 and will likely use a Snapdragon 888+ SoC and could debut as a rebadged Moto G200. The Moto Edge S30 has been extensively teased
on the company’s official Weibo handle. The Moto Edge X30 and Edge S30 will debut as part of the company’s dual flagship strategy.
