Without actually telling us which phone it plans to unveil in the US on February 24, Motorola hinted at a new Edge series announcement not long ago. We now know for sure that the device in question is the Edge 30 Pro, the global version of the Moto Edge X30.
Thanks to reputable leaker Evan Blass, we also have a much better idea of what lies ahead. The Moto Edge 30 Pro photos attached to the article suggest that Motorola’s next smartphone will have some interesting accessories such as a stylus and a folio case.
Obviously, Motorola often includes stylus accessories with its smartphones to the point that it has a dedicated range just for those specifically looking for cheaper Galaxy Note alternatives. So it’s really no surprise that the Moto Edge 30 Pro has full stylus support. As mentioned earlier, the stylus will connect to the phone via Bluetooth and will support air gestures, as well as wireless charging. We have some equally interesting things to report about the folio case, which appears to have an unusually large vertical cutout from top to bottom. Since it’s so big, you’ll be able to see a lot more information on it with the downside that more of the phone will be exposed, unprotected.
The Moto Edge 30 Pro has a dedicated always-on display mode, which shows important information like the time, battery status, media controls, and an email notification icon. Judging by what’s shown in the image, there’s room to show even more detail, but it’s still fine regardless.
One word of advice though, if you’re considering the Moto Edge 30 Pro, keep in mind that neither of these two accessories come bundled with the phone, so you’ll have to buy them separately.
Other than that, here’s a quick rundown of what we were able to learn about the Moto Edge 30 Pro before the phone went official on (hopefully) February 24th. First of all, this one will be equipped with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, coupled with up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal memory.
Additionally, the camera island on the back houses a 50MP camera sensor with OIS (optical image stabilization), another 50MP camera with an ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.
It’s unlikely to be a Verizon exclusive in the US, but at this point it would be foolish to assume anything, so don’t just take our word for it yet.
