Motorola Edge X30 official with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset
It’s been just over a week since Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and we already have the first phone to feature the brand new flagship processor as the new Motorola Edge X30 is now official.
Motorola Edge X30 specifications
The Edge X30 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. The standard version features a small punch hole cutout behind the earpiece for the 60MP selfie camera, which features a 1/2.8-inch sensor and 1.2m pixels.
The Special Edition makes use of the same module but conceals it behind the display; it will be fascinating to see how the two compare.
According to Motorola’s tests, the X30 should deliver a 20 percent boost in CPU performance, a 30 percent boost in GPU performance, and a 400 boost boost in AI workloads when compared to the Snapdragon 888 Plus processor. These figures correspond to those provided by Qualcomm at their 8 Gen 1 announcement.
Motorola’s shared that X30 achieved an AnTuTu score of 1,061,361 points, the platform’s greatest result to yet. Additionally, the phone features fast LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage.
Around the back, we get a 50MP primary camera equipped with an OmniVision OV50A 1/1.55-inch sensor with optical image stabilisation. When 4in1 pixel binning is used, it has pixels with a size of 2.0m. A second 50MP ISOCELL S5KGM1 ultra-wide sensor is included, as is a 2MP depth of field module. You can record natively up to 8K video.
