Motorola has announced the launch of the Motorola Edge 30 smartphone in Europe, a smaller version of its flagship Edge 30 Pro. The new model in Europe will cost 449 euros (about $475) and it will also appear in the markets of Asia and the Middle East later this year. However, for North America, Motorola is planning another smartphone from the Edge series, which should be released later this year.
Motorola Edge 30 offers a smaller screen and a thinner design than the Edge 30 Pro. The smartphone’s 6.5-inch OLED 1080p display supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz, but the model is generally positioned lower than the flagship, so it got a less powerful Snapdragon 778 processor and Adreno 642L graphics. In addition, the amount of RAM can be only 8 GB, and built-in 128 or 256 GB. There is no support for memory cards.
But the main cameras of the Motorola Edge 30 have the same configuration as the flagship:
- 50-megapixel wide-angle module with optical stabilization, phase autofocus and f/1.8 aperture;
- 50-megapixel ultra-wide module with f/2.2 aperture and electronic stabilization;
- 2-megapixel depth sensor.
The 32-megapixel selfie camera has a lower resolution compared to the 60-megapixel camera on the 30 Pro, and video recording on the main camera reaches 4K instead of 8K.
The smartphone has also received 802.11 a/b/g/n/a/6e wireless modules, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, and support for A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, and GALILEO satellite navigation systems.
The built-in battery in the Motorola Edge 30 has a capacity of 4020 mAh, it can be recharged faster thanks to the support of chargers at 33 watts.
