The Moto Edge 30 Pro leak reveals a familiar look, but a new Motorola smartphone is on the way

The latest Motorola phone to launch in 2021 was the Moto Edge X30, which launched in China in December but has yet to make its way beyond the nation, at least at the time of writing.

Reports claim it may ultimately appear as a member of the Motorola Edge 30 line, which we estimate to launch in mid-2022, although we’re not yet certain which member will be a renamed X30. Numerous reports indicated that the X30 would be the Edge 30 Ultra, while a fresh leak indicates that it would be the Edge 30 Pro.

This information comes from the technology website MySmartPrice, which released leaked renderings and specifications for the Edge 30 Pro… they are very similar to those for the Edge X30, with the source implying that the 30 Pro is just a rebranded X30 for worldwide markets.

That means it retains the same 6.7-inch FHD+ 144Hz display, 5,000mAh battery, 68W charging, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 60MP front camera, 50MP+50MP+2MP rear camera combo, and Android 12 OS. At the top of this post, you’ll see promotional materials for the phone that were distributed at the X30’s introduction.

A release date for the Motorola Edge 30 line is yet unknown, but we hope it won’t be too lengthy otherwise the X30’s novelty will fade.

A more enticing Ultra

The term ‘Ultra’ in a phone’s name makes it seem exciting, which is typically true, as is the case with the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, both of which include top-tier specifications and flashy accessories.

We’ve heard several reports of a Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, and first assumed it was a repackaged X30 – that phone has excellent specifications but lacks the ‘ultra’ sheen of the Samsung and Xiaomi.

If the X30 is really the Edge 30 Pro, this is excellent news, since it implies that an even more stunning phone will join the family. Perhaps it will have unique camera techniques, quicker charging, a high-resolution display, and stylus compatibility (something which has, in fact, been leaked).

There is a lot we don’t know about this mysterious high-end phone, so we might be in for some huge shocks when it comes – and given how active the tech leak industry is, surprises are uncommon and thrilling.
