Motorola Edge 30 Pro with official Snapdragon 8 Gen1, specifications and price

After coming in a bit behind the competition with the “old” Edge 20 Pro, Motorola plays early this year and launches its successor on the market today, that is Edge 30 Prowhich is also the first smartphone with the new Snapdragon 8 Gen1 to be available in Italy. A few hours ago OPPO has in fact made its Find X5 Pro official, also based on the same platform, which will however only be really available for purchase in a few days.

Edge 30 Pro is therefore configured as Motorola’s new flagship product and as such is very well-finished from the point of view of assembly and materials. Front and back are made of glass, while the frame is made of fiberglass reinforced. There is the IP52 certification which certifies the resistance to water splashes and dust, therefore waterproofing in case of immersion is not guaranteed. The dimensions are certainly not contained but refer to what is the average of smartphones with displays of similar dimensions.

In detail we talk about one 6.7-inch diagonal screen, made with pOLED technology and equipped with a resolution of 2400×1800 pixels and a maximum refresh rate of 144Hz. This is a 10-bit panel that also offers compatibility with HDR content with support for the HDR10 + standard. Compared to last year, the audio goes from mono to stereo, with the ear capsule acting as a second speaker.

As already mentioned, under the body beats one Snapdragon 8 Gen1 with Adreno 730 GPUaccompanied by 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of storage on UFS 3.1 memories. The storage is not expandable as the SIM tray can only accommodate two SIM cards in Nano format. Thanks to the x65 modem, 5G is supported for both SIMs, obviously only on one of these at a time. There is of course also WiFi 6e and Bluetooth in version 5.2.
