It’s official now: Motorola just smashed the high-end for 2022 with a new device. The company has not been completely competitive in previous years when it comes to high-end ranges, but this will change in the face of 2022. In China it has just presented the Motorola Edge X30 , a premium high-end device with the latest in hardware and a design interesting. The price that Motorola has set in China exposes Samsung, Huawei or even Xiaomi.
New design for the Motorola Edge X30
The company has slightly changed the design from its previous Edges. Now the X30 offers a glass rear with a large camera module and a centered company logo, Apple- style. The front has tight bezels and a centered screen hole.
The general appearance of the device is very good and stands out for offering a matte glass back and not a glossy one. The fingerprint sensor is located on the screen, has USB C and lacks a headphone jack.
It may not be the most spectacular high-end in terms of design or the prettiest, but Motorola is not aiming for this goal. The company has created a terminal with a decent design and a most attractive interior with an extremely competitive price.
Features of the Motorola Edge X30
- 6.67 inch screen:
- FullHD +
- 144 Hz refresh rate
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor
- 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM

- 50 + 50 + 2 MP rear camera
- 60 MP front camera
- Metal and glass body
- USB C and fingerprint sensor
- Support 5G, WiFi, NFC …
- 5,000 mAh battery with 68W fast charge
- Android 11
The device offers one of the best displays, the best processor, the best memory chips, incredible fast charging, a promising camera module, and one of the best front cameras on the market.
Motorola, finally, has done a very good job with a high-end device for several years now. The company wants to get back into the higher-end market and with this Edge X30 it can achieve it.
This device will have little to envy the Samsung Galaxy S22, Huawei Mate 50, Xiaomi 12 or OnePlus 10 Pro. It is on par in hardware and performance, the only weak point being the rear camera. We’ll see how those 50 MP sensors are shared in real life.
Motorola Edge X30 price
Not only will it be able to compete with the bigger ones when it comes to features, but all indications are that it will be cheaper than most. In China it has been put on sale with a price of 416 euros or 470 dollars at the exchange for the 8/128 GB version. The highest version of 12/256 GB is on sale with a price of 471 euros or 533 dollars .
We will have to wait for the device to arrive in Europe, probably renamed the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra . If the price remains around 600-700 euros / dollars we could be facing one of the most interesting high-end of the year.
