Motorola to bring a new smartphone with 200MP camera soon
Motorola has confirmed that it is working on a new smartphone with a 200MP camera sensor and it will be launched in the month of July. This upcoming device is speculated to be the Moto Edge 30 Ultra. Previously, the Lenovo-owned sub-brand has already confirmed that it is working on a flagship Android smartphone that is powered by the newly-launched Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC.
Though the company did not reveal the official moniker of its upcoming 200MP smartphone, it has confirmed that the device would be launched sometime in July. The exact launch date of the upcoming device will be known in the coming days. The new Motorola smartphone could be called as the Motorola Edge X30 Pro in China and Moto Edge 30 Ultra in global markets.
The phone might also arrive in India under the Moto Edge 30 series as we already have the Edge 30 and Edge 30 Pro smartphones available in the country.
Motorola Moto Edge 30 Ultra specifications (Expected)
The Moto Edge 30 Ultra is rumored to have been codenamed as Frontier. The device is expected to sport a 6.67-inch Full HD+ AMOLED curved display with a refresh rate support of 144Hz. It will have a hole-punch cutout at the top centre of the display to accommodate the selfie camera.
The upcoming smartphone will be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 5G SoC and will be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The device will boot Android 12 out of the box. It will have a layer of MyUX on top of Android.
For photography, the device will have a triple-camera setup at the back with a 200-megapixel primary camera. The other camera sensors of the phone will be 50-megapixel ultrawide camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor. At the front, the device will likely come with a 60-megapixel selfie shooter.
Motorola is speculated to use Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor that can output 12.5MP or 50MP stills via pixel binning and its deep learning-based remosaicing algorithm. The sensor also supports 8K video recording at 30fps.
The phone will also pack a 4500 mAh battery with support for 125W fast charging.
It may have a premium rice tag. If launched in India, the phone will compete against the likes of the Xiaomi 12 Pro, OnePlus 10 Pro, iQOO 9 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 series and the recently launched Vivo X80 Pro.
