Motorola’s releasing a lot of flagships lately
Ever since the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 showed up, Motorola has been eager to release flagship after flagship. Some of these new flagships are actually renamed from existing ones. If you can recall, the first phone with SD 8 Gen 1 processor is the Moto Edge X30, and the performance reception is little “yikes“.
The new flagship is called “Motorola Frontier”, according to the rumour mill, it may be a renamed Moto Edge X30, or a variant of it. This phone would be equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 paired with 8 or 12GB RAM and either 128 or 256GB storage. Another rumour reports that it will come with a 200mp sensor, most likely the Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor.
Speaking of cameras, aside from the main 200mp sensor, there’s also a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL JN1 ultrawide camera, and a 12mp Sony IMX663 telephoto sensor with OIS. For the front camera, there’s a 60MP Omnivision OV60A sensor, another similarity from its cousin, the Moto Edge X30. We just sure hope that the 200mp Samsung sensor has OIS because most Samsung sensors released recently don’t have it, a shame too since we’re seeing it on high-end flagships.
Another thing mentioned in the rumors is the ultra-fast 125W charging and also supports up to 50W fast wireless charging. This combination is rarely seen on flagships and it’s quite impressive for Motorola. In case you weren’t aware, Infinix has been developing their own 160W fast charging while Xiaomi is developing the first-ever 200W fast charging on a phone.
As for the display, it’s a typical 6.67in. FHD+ OLED panel with 144Hz refresh rate.
As these are still rumors, and Motorola is yet to say anything, take these specs with a pinch of salt. Most rumors are accurate but some actually miss the mark, like the so-called “scanner” design of the Realme GT2 Series, which never actually happened.
