  • Specifications for a phone that could land like the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra has just been leaked.
  • The phone looks like a premium flagship, complete with a Snapdragon 898.
  • However, the rear camera system seems to be missing a telephoto lens.

While Motorola is one of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, it doesn’t do as well in the premium flagship market. Most of its phones are mid-range and budget devices. That’s just the niche Motorola has created for itself.

However, that status doesn’t stop the company from trying. A case in point today is some specs for a new Motorola phone that appears to be the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (or possibly the Motorola Edge X in China). If the specs are real, it could be a premium flagship model with a top of the range processor.

The source of this information is Nils Ahrensmeier (via Technik News), who has been reliable in the past. However, these are leaked specs so be sure to treat them with skepticism.

Motorola Edge 30 Ultra Leaked Specifications

These specs have been leaked so don’t take them as definitive. Here you are:

  • Processor: Snapdragon “SM8450” (probably SD888 successor)
  • Advertisement: 6.67-inch OLED with 144 Hz refresh rate and Full HD + resolution
  • Reversing cameras: 50MP wide, 50MP ultra wide and 2MP depth
  • Front camera: 60MP
  • R.A.M: 8 or 12 GB LPDDR5
  • Storage: 128 or 256 GB non-expandable UFS 3.1
  • Power: 5,000mAh battery with 68W wired charging and no wireless charging
  • Durability: Degree of protection IP52
  • Operating system: Android 12 ready to use right out of the box

The most notable specs here are the 60 MP selfie camera and 68W charging cable. This selfie camera would have one of the highest megapixel counts on the market and its wired charging speed would outperform all other Motorola phones as well as major flagships from Google, Samsung and Apple.

However, the reported lack of a telephoto lens and IP52 rating mean you wouldn’t get a top-of-the-line device from the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. The Full HD + resolution would also lag behind most premium flagships in this category, as would the lack of wireless charging.

We’ll have to wait and see how this leak develops. It is possible that Motorola will launch this phone before the end of 2021.
