Motorola Mobility, a Lenovo-owned firm, has launched the Edge 30 Pro in the country, the company’s latest flagship smartphone. For the Chinese market, the phone is the renamed Moto Edge X30 from last year. A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU powers the 6.7-inch OLED display on the Edge 30 Pro. The flagship smartphone runs on Android 12, and the business has promised to provide quarterly Android OS updates and security patches for the next two years.
Price and Availability
Motorola Edge 30 Pro is available in Cosmos Blue and Stardust White for Rs 49,999. The smartphone will be available online on Flipkart and in-store at authorised retail outlets across the country beginning March 4.
As part of its launch incentives, the firm offers a flat discount of Rs 5,000 on SBI credit cards. Jio is now offering a Rs 10,000 discount. Additionally, customers may take benefit of no-cost EMIs starting at Rs 5,559 from leading banks.
Specifications for the Motorola Edge 30 Pro
Let us take a closer look at what the Motorola Edge 30 Pro has to offer. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 smartphone is available in two RAM (8GB/12GB) and three storage variants (128GB/256GB/512GB). Those who want a sleek, clutter-free user interface will appreciate the Edge 30 Pro’s Android 12 and MiUI 3.0. The smartphone features Motorola’s signature software and a three-year security update guarantee. Motorola has also confirmed that the flagship will run Android versions 13 and 14.
Design and Presentation
The Edge 30 Pro is powered by an OLED display with HDR10+ certification. It features a 6.7-inch OLED Full HD+ 144Hz 10bit display. Because it is kept of Gorilla Glass 3 rather than Gorilla Glass 5 like the Edge 20 Pro, it is less sturdy. It features a hole in the centre for accessing the 60MP selfie camera. Additionally, Motorola opted for a plastic frame over a metal chassis for the Edge 30 Pro.
This frame is easily smeared and damaged, and on its right side are the volume rocker and power key, the latter of which doubles as a fingerprint reader. These buttons provide enough feedback, but are somewhat too high for our comfort.. Specifically, the volume controls.
On the rear of the Motorola Edge 30 Pro, we find a Gorilla Glass 5 panel with a triple camera system composed of a 50MP primary camera (with OIS), a 50MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. Motorola removed the 8MP periscope telephoto camera from the Edge 20 Pro.
In order to ensure a secure hold, the panel’s edges have been precisely curvy. However, throughout our limited time with the phone, the cover quickly accumulated fingerprints. The plastic plate on the camera island is also gleaming and smeared.
Additionally, the Edge 30 Pro features a 5G connectivity, NFC, twin speakers, Dolby Atmos support, an IP52 water-resistant casing, and a 4,800 mAh battery that can draw up to 68W of power via the USB-C adapter. This is a huge improvement over the 30W charging speed of the Edge 20 Pro. Additionally, the smartphone supports 15W wireless charging and 5W reverse wireless charging, something the Edge 20 Pro lacked.
