According to the Geekbench database, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will have an octa-core processor, which will have four cores clocked at 2.02GHz, three cores clocked at 2.75GHz, and one core clocked at 3.19GHz. If these numbers look familiar, it's because they are the same as the ones in the Geekbench listing for the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. This means the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will have Qualcomm's latest and greatest silicon under its hood, just like the Razr 2022.In the listing, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra runs on Android 12 and has 12GB of RAM, but Motorola may offer more RAM and storage options when it releases the phone. For example, according to a listing on TENAA, the Moto Razr 2022 will come with up to 18GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space. For the Edge 30 Ultra, Motorola might offer similar options as well.
Those interested in Geekbench scores can spot that the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra scored 1318 in the single-core and 4235 in the multi-core tests. In comparison, the OnePlus 10T, which OnePlus recently released and comes equipped with the same silicon, scored 1049 and 3495 on its single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.According to the rumor mill, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will have a 6.67-inch OLED display, which will support a 144Hz refresh rate. It’s expected to come with 256GB of storage, but, as we said, Motorola might offer more storage options. The Edge 30 Ultra might have a 4,500mAh battery and support 125W fast wired charging.
In the camera department, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will allegedly have a triple camera setup with a 200MP main sensor— made by Samsung — a 50MP ultrawide snapper, and a 12MP telephoto shooter. We can all agree that a 200MP main camera just sounds insane. The Motorola X30 Pro will also have a 200MP main shooter, making the X30 Pro and the Edge 30 Ultra the first ever smartphones with 200MP main cameras. We just can't wait to test Samsung's new sensor and see if it is really as good as the company claims.
As for the price of the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, the rumors say that it will probably start at Rs 69,999, which, converted into US dollars, is around $880. However, keep in mind that the prices in different markets vary, so most likely, this won't be the price tag you will see in the US stores.
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra flagship got benchmarked with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. The device actually appeared on Geekbench, and the listing did reveal some additional info as well.
Based on this information, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will also include 12GB of RAM. Well, at least one of its variants will. Android 12 will come pre-installed on the device too. That’s basically all the spec info that Geekbench shared.
The device managed to score 1,318 points in the single-core, and 4,235 points in the multi-core test. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is an immensely powerful SoC, and benchmarking it only proves that. Do note these are pre-release results, though.
This smartphone will be called the Motorola Edge X30 Pro in China. That’s where it will launch first, actually. It will become official on August 11, even though it was originally supposed to launch on August 2.
Motorola, for some reason, decided to cancel the event right before it started. It rescheduled it soon after, though. The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra aka Edge X30 Pro will arrive alongside two other phones.
Those two phones are the Motorola Razr 2022 and Motorola S30 Pro. The former is a high-end foldable that many people are looking forward to. It will be the first Razr foldable with truly high-end specifications.
The Motorola S30 Pro, on the flip side, is quite a powerful smartphone as well, which will be fueled by the Snapdragon 888 SoC. So even though it’s powerful, it’s a level below the other two devices.
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is rumored to also include a 6.67-inch OLED panel with a 144Hz refresh rate. It will likely ship with 256GB of internal storage, and a 200-megapixel camera from Samsung is also tipped.
A 4,500mAh battery could be a part of the package too, along with blazing-fast 125W wired charging. The phone will be made out of metal and glass, by the way.
Motorola China’s top executive has posted the first photo from the upcoming Motorola Edge smartphone, which will be announced later this year. The new camera is powered by the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 200MP camera sensor, a higher-end version of the Samsung ISOCELL HP3 sensor we told you about last month.
The HP1 has larger pixels than the HP3 (0.64μm vs. 0.56 μm), but these pixels are still significantly smaller than 0.8 μm (microns). Such tiny pixels don’t capture photons as efficiently as larger pixels, but by how much remains to be seen. Previously, we’ve seen that going from 0.8 μm down to 0.7 μm (same Megapixel) could affect image quality by about ~10%.
You can read my entire post about the HP3 sensor, as both HP1 and HP3 sensors will share the same challenges, especially regarding low-light photo capture at full resolution. I also explain why pixel-merger (pixel binning) helps but does not equal larger pixels.
The sensor isn’t very big (1/1.22”) and is equivalent in size to the Moto X30 Pro, and we would be very curious to test both side-by-side to see what the new sensor (and software) brings to the table.
Some people have scrutinized the trial photo that was posted, and after a 1:1 crop to show its full details, they quickly spotted some sharpness issues due to what seems to be a lens aberration. Browse the full image on weibo.
If that’s a lens issue, it is worth pointing out that we don’t know if it would show up the same way on another phone because each lens is slightly different, unless it’s a design or manufacturing process flaw.
Also, we would need more photos from that specific camera to confirm that it’s a lens issue, as the problem would invariably repeat itself on that handset. I’ll stay cautious for now.
Generally, I’d expect the camera to feature higher levels of details if the “Camera” app allows users to select 200MP in “auto” mode. Very few handsets allow it, and any “HD” mode hidden deep in the camera settings will never be used.
Perhaps, the more important metric is the camera hardware potential vs. its price (= the value).

Update: July 29, 2022 (1:58 AM ET): China’s TENAA regulatory body has listed what seems to be the Motorola Razr 2022 on its website. The listing reveals a variety of specs, such as a 6.67-inch FHD+ OLED screen, 2.65-inch external OLED display (800 x 573), 8GB to 18GB of RAM, 128GB to 512GB of storage, and an unspecified ultrawide camera.
The filing also confirms dimensions (166.99 × 79.79 × 7.62mm) and weight (200 grams). This makes it slightly wider, thicker, and heavier than the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Nevertheless, you might want to take some of these details with a grain of salt as aspects like RAM and storage could be placeholder figures.
Original article: July 28, 2022 (): The Motorola Razr was the first clamshell foldable phone to be revealed back in 2019, but Samsung stole a march on the brand thanks to its more polished Galaxy Z Flip series. Motorola is looking to step its game up with the Razr 2022 though, and it’s now shed light on some specs ahead of the upcoming launch.
Starting with the chipset, the Chinese brand revealed on Weibo that the new foldable will pack a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. This is a welcome change from earlier rumors pointing to the vanilla Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The Plus processor packs a little more grunt while also touting major efficiency gains, so we should see better endurance with the same battery capacity compared to using the vanilla chipset.
Thankfully, we do get a battery capacity upgrade here. A Motorola executive confirmed on Weibo that the Razr 2022 will arrive with a 3,500mAh battery. That’s 200mAh bigger than the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and 700mAh bigger than the Razr 5G. It’s still very small for a conventional smartphone, but this size is expected for a clamshell foldable. The executive insisted that we’ll still see “excellent” battery life though. I guess we’ll just have to wait for a review unit to put this claim to the test.
The manufacturer also confirmed that the Razr 2022’s external display can “sit on the same level as the internal screen,” according to machine translation. This suggests that many apps and tasks can be run on the cover display in addition to the folding screen. This would be a welcome addition as Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip series requires workarounds to run more apps on the external screen.
Motorola will launch the new Razr foldable alongside the X30 Pro flagship phone on August 2. So we don’t have long to wait for all the details to emerge.
The tensions between China and Taiwan were thought to have caused the cancellation of the launch of the Motorola Razr and the X30 Pro. It has not yet been confirmed if geopolitics was really responsible but with the way the two countries are heading, it seems like a plausible reason. Motorola was supposed to have launched the Razr 2022 on August 2 in China, but as we now know, that did not happen as the event was unceremoniously cancelled. There is a light at the end of the tunnel though, as Lenovo and Motorola GM Chen Jin took to Weibo and posted an image displaying a folded Razr 2022 with the date set to August 11. The image could have also revealed the specific time of the launch as well.
There has been no official statement on the matter by Motorola but the image that was posted could possibly be hinting toward the following expected launch date and time. We could also see the launch of the X30 Pro at the same event but again, there is no official word from Motorola yet.
If you're interested in either device, both the Motorola X30 Pro and Razr 2022 are up for pre-order on JD.Com with the cut-off date set to August 11 at 7:59 PM. This could even indicate that the devices may go up as a part of some sale after the initialcutoff. But again, take this with a grain of salt as there is no official announcement from the company yet.
The Motorola Razr 2022 could come with a 6.67-inch HD OLED screen and be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC. Moving on to the Motorola X30 Pro, the device is rumoured to come with a 6.67-inch OLED display and a primary camera with a 200MP sensor. These are just the rumoured specs as we'll have more information on exactly what's in these devices once they officially hit the market.
The Motorola Razr 2022 is about to debut on August 2, 2022. Ahead of the launch, the company is teasing different aspects of the smartphone, including the displays and the new camera setup. Further, the Motorola Razr 2022's performance scores have also surfaced on the internet, via Geekbench. Keep practicing to know more about the teaser and the Geekbench listing of Motorola Razr 2022.
The Lenovo-owned smartphone brand has put out a fresh teaser on a microblogging platform called Weibo. The teaser contains images of the primary and the secondary display on the smartphone. Although it does not reveal any specifics about the display, it also showcases the dual-camera setup on the rear panel of the smartphone, which corroborates the rumours that have surfaced in the past. The Motorola Razr 2022 is said to come with a 50MP primary camera and a 13MP macro camera.
In addition to the teaser, the smartphone has also been spotted on the popular benchmarking platform called Geekbench. The listing suggests that the foldable smartphone from Motorola has the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset and 12GB of RAM. With the configuration, it managed to score 1,251 points in the single-core and 4,076 points in the multi-core Geekbench test. If the smartphone does perform similarly in the real world, it is going to be a good deal.
While not much is known about the Motorola Razr 2022, it is said to come with a 6.7-inch primary display that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. Further, like the previous models, the Razr 2022 is also said to have a 3-inch outer screen. In addition, the smartphone should also come with a 50MP main camera, along with a 13MP ultrawide camera. On the primary screen, the Motorola Razr 2022 could also feature a 32MP selfie camera.
In comparison with the previous smartphones in the Razr series, the Motorola Razr 2022 could come with a flagship processor. The last Motorola Razr came with a Snapdragon 7-series chipset. Overall, fans and enthusiasts are expecting the company to Improve the battery and camera performance of the smartphone as well. More details about the smartphone should surface on the internet in the coming days. Stay tuned for more updates related to Motorola and other tech news.
