The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, which is slated to launch in January with a Snapdragon 898 chipset, will be the first Android flagship phone of 2022, eclipsing the Samsung Galaxy S22. And today’s we’ve combined new information leaked by 91Mobiles and TechnikNews to discuss everything you have to know and expect from the upcoming latest smartphone in the market. Read on to discover more!
The Design Front
Motorola recently announced the creation of a new high-end device known as the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, and we now have our first glimpse at its potential looks.
Motorola reports that the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is currently available in blue and grey, with the possibility of more colours on the way. It is also anticipated to measure 163.1 x 76.5 x 8.8mm (or 10mm including the rear camera bump).

The New Snapdragon Chipset
Qualcomm has not yet released the official name of the chipset, though, so it could be called the Snapdragon 895. We’re guessing it would be tough for the company (and the general public) to revert to its former numbering strategy after the Snapdragon 888 in 2021. According to an unidentified source, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra (XT-2201, internally codenamed “Rogue”) will be equipped with the Snapdragon SM8540 processor, a straight replacement for the Snapdragon 898 silicon. Motorola has also been speculated to be one of the first to release a phone powered by this chipset.
The Camera and Other Technical Specifications
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra also comes with a 60MP front-facing camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 5000 mAh battery. Two of the three rear cameras (primary and ultra-wide) will be 50MP with a 2MP sensor, and the front-facing camera will be 60MP. It will also contain a quick-charger (68W). These figures point to a high-end gadget, with the 60MP selfie camera standing out as a standout feature.
The rumoured specifications include a 6.67-inch Full HD Plus display with a 144Hz refresh rate, IP 52 water and dust resistance, and pre-installed Android 12.
Good, Not Great
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra appears to be on par with the finest smartphones in terms of camera capability, despite having only a 2MP depth sensor and a triple-lens setup. It will also include 8GB or 12GB of RAM (other high-end smartphones now have 16GB), as well as 128GB or 256GB of storage (again, less than other phones).
Additionally, a recent leak suggests that the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will have a Full HD+ display, which may not be as high-quality as some other phones but does have a high refresh rate of 144Hz.
Despite the name, this is most likely a Samsung Galaxy S22 competitor rather than a Galaxy S22 Ultra competitor. The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is scheduled to arrive in China in January, while the Motorola Edge X could arrive as early as December.
Leading the Flagship Phone Market
Motorola has sought to re-enter the flagship phone market with the Motorola Edge series but has had limited success. As a result, the launch strategy has been fragmented, with phones distributed across several areas and few devices available globally.
The phone company is also notorious for changing and rebranding its phones in different markets as they believe that the changes are being implemented to increase the company’s appeal to local consumers. Thus, it’s nearly impossible to confirm the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra’s release date or if it will be available in all markets at all.
If the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is released at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S22, its cameras and fast charging capabilities may pose a threat to premium Android phones (rumoured to launch in February). With a launch window that overlaps with CES 2022 in early January, Motorola’s next flagship might be officially unveiled at the major technology expo.
Sometimes, a phone isn’t just a phone. Nowadays, it’s a smartphone that is a part of our lifestyle. From work to school, business, and leisure, we can’t wait for what the future holds for the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra in the market. The clock is ticking and the countdown can’t be any closer!
