Motorola is expected to announce the Moto Edge X next month in China, rumored to arrive on the global scene with the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra moniker in January. Now we hear Motorola will launch two flagship smartphones in December – one having the Snapdragon 888+ at the helm and the other having the next-gen Snapdragon 8-series chip, rumored to be called Snapdragon 898 or Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
Word comes from reliable tipster Digital Chat Station, who said that Motorola will launch two flagships next month as a part of its dual-flagship strategy, with the Snapdragon 888 Plus-powered smartphone priced lower.
We don’t have any details about the Snapdragon 888 Plus-powered Motorola smartphone, but previous leaks revealed the Moto Edge X/Edge 30 Ultra will come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1/898 SoC. The smartphone will boot Android 12 and have up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage onboard, but there will be no microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will pack a 6.67″ 144Hz FullHD+ OLED screen with HDR10+ support and a punch hole in the center for the 60MP selfie camera. Around the back, we’ll get a triple camera system comprising 50MP primary (with OIS), 50MP ultrawide, and 2MP depth units.
The rest of the Edge 30 Ultra’s leaked specs include a 5,000 mAh battery with 68W charging support, USB-C (3.1 Gen 1) port, IP52 rating, dedicated Google Assistant button, and stereo speakers. It will also come with Bluetooth 5.2, WLAN 6, and Sub-6 5G, but you won’t get the 3.5mm headphone jack.
