Motorola has made the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 debut with its Motorola Edge X30 in December last year. This device took a few months but is now available across global markets as Motorola Edge 30 Pro, and Edge Plus 2022 in the United States. For some time, we believed that this would be the company’s flagship device for 2022. However, its place will soon be occupied by the Motorola Frontier which figures as a much more interesting device. In addition to that, the company will also introduce a vanilla Motorola Edge 30. Now, recent reports suggest that there will be many other devices. Including a Motorola Edge 30 Ultra.
Motorola Edge 30 Ultra
According to the leaked info, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will pack a 200 MP main camera, which is likely Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1. Coincidence or not, this is the same sensor coming with the Motorola Frontier. This suggests that “Frontier” is just the codename of a device that will carry Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. Given this device’s position way above the Pro, we assume that this is accurate. The phone will have the highest resolution camera of any smartphone and will also pack Optical Image Stabilization. The device will also bring a 50 MP ultrawide snapper, and a 12 MP telephoto camera with 2 x zoom. There is also a 60 MP selfie snapper.
