Overview Motorola Edge X30 Special Edition
Android version and market relevance
Dual-smartphone Motorola Edge X30 introduced a company Motorola in December 2021. It has Android version 12, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.
Screen, body and battery
Briefly describe the screen and the body of the smartphone. Motorola Edge X30 received OLED-screen measuring 6.7 inches. And this is a phablete, not just a smartphone. And, even if you liked this model, it′s far from the fact that it will be convenient for you to use it. Therefore, we advise you to hold it in your hands before buying. In addition to the screen size, it is also worth talking about the image refresh rate.
And now let’s move on to describing the dimensions of the case. The ratio of screen size to body size of Motorola Edge X30 is very high, so the screen takes up almost all the space from edge to edge (but a little bit lacking to the parameters of a frameless smartphone). In addition, there is a small hole at the top of the screen, which houses a selfie camera. Such a cutout significantly increases the usable area of the smartphone screen and even distinguishes the body design from other models. The thickness of the smartphone Motorola Edge X30 is 8.5 mm. This model, you can call “fat”, because today many smartphones with thinner cases are already being manufactured. And in such dimensions the engineers managed to put the battery on 5 000 mAh, that just mega-cool for such a device. The operating time on one battery charge will exceed all your expectations.
Another of the features of the hull, we note that Motorola Edge X30 has dust, water protection. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.
Main camera and selfie camera
The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 50 MP Wide + 50 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Motorola Edge X30 has one module: 60 MP Wide. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.
Processor and Internal Memory
Smartphone received 8-core processor Snapdragon 8 Gen1 (4 nm). If you want to assess the speed of the smartphone and its performance, then do not forget to see how much RAM is installed in it. Motorola Edge X30 received 8 GB of RAM, and there is another version of this smartphone with 12 GB of RAM.
And there are options with built-in memory. You can choose 128 GB or 256 GB. .

If you want to buy Motorola Edge X30, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.
Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface.
