3

Motorola has formalized its new range of smartphones in Europe. On the menu, Edge 30 Ultra, Edge 30 Fusion and Edge 30 Neo, the first of which is characterized by its main 200 megapixel photo sensor.

Smartphones had been formalized in China in August, they are now making their debut in Europe. The new Edge 30s now take the name Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (Edge X30 Pro in China), Edge 30 Fusion and Edge 30 Neo.

Of course, it’s the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra we’re keeping from this wave of news. In addition to its resolutely high-end technical sheet, the smartphone includes a first on the smartphone market: a 200 megapixel photo sensor. It is indeed the Isocell HP1 signed Samsung, presented in the fall of 2021, and which wisely awaited its integration into a first smartphone. Operation which took many months, so much so that Samsung has meanwhile formalized a second generation of 200 megapixel sensors, Isocell HP3. At any rate, Motorola intends to impose itself on the photophone market with this sensor, accompanied by a stabilized wide-angle (f/2) optic.

This sensor is not alone, as on the back of the device there is also an ultra-wide-angle and macro module with a 50-megapixel sensor, autofocus and f/2 optics, 2. A 12-megapixel sensor (f / 1.6 optics) brings up the back and offers a 2x zoom aimed at portrait shooting. We also note the possibility of filming in 8K at 30 fps. On the front, Motorola is also playing big, opting for a 60-megapixel sensor accompanied by f/2.2 optics with an HDR mode. Suffice it to say, we can’t wait to test it all.

For the rest, the Edge 30 Ultra has a 6.7-inch OLED display that displays 1080 x 2400 pixels and benefits from a refresh rate of 144 Hz. It benefits from the latest generation of Qualcomm chips, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 flanked by 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, but also a 4610 mAh battery compatible with ultra-fast charging at 125 W. Wireless charging is on the menu, but we note the absence of waterproof certification (it is only IP52 certified) on this premium model. Its marketing is planned for September at a price of €899, in a price range that Motorola had abandoned for several years.
