It’s a flagship phone with some serious specs
The Motorola Edge 30 Pro is coming to the Philippines as announced by Motorola Philippines! What we particularly like about this device is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset inside with 12GB RAM, 144Hz OLED panel, and 60mp front camera, all for a price of Php34,995. These are its main distinguishing features that make it stand out from other phones, in particular, the 144Hz refresh rate because others would stick to just 120Hz in this price range.
It comes with a 10-bit 6.7in. FHD+ (2400x1080px) OLED with 144Hz refresh rate. It also has support for DCI-P3 colour gamut for accurate and vivid colour representation.
We mentioned already that it comes with the 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. It is paired with a whopping 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. It also comes with the dedicated ThinkShield security suite from Lenovo.
There are three cameras at the back. Two of which are 50mp. The first is the main wide lens with an aperture of f/1.8 and comes with OIS in addition to the omni-directional PDAF and 1.0µm pixel size. The second lens is the ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2 and a field of view of 114-degrees. This isn’t very wide since others can do as much as 120 degrees but still is wide enough for a large group. It has a pixel size of 1.28µm. The front camera is 60mp that’s larger than typical 16mp cameras and this one can also take 4K video, like the rear cameras. The third camera at the back is the useless 2mp depth for portrait shots.
Keeping the phone alive is the 4800mAh battery with 68W fast charging that’s complemented with 15W fast wireless charging and 5W reverse charging. It has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and also face unlock.
As a flagship phone, it has 5G services, Bluetooth 5.2, and Wi-Fi 6. It is also Dual-SIM, in which you can insert two nano-SIM cards.
In some regions, there is a stylus pen included. We can’t say for sure if this one would also come with it but it surely isn’t listed in the specs.
Two colours are available for the phone. They are “Cosmos Blue” and “Stardust White”. It will be available for sale starting 25th April and comes with FOUR FREEBIES worth Php23,000. These are the Henschel Stowaway Jacket, Lenovo Yoga ANC headphones, Lenovo USB-C Powerbank, and the Lenovo Smartwatch S2. For all its worth, it gives more than what the price asks for. The freebies are available until 28th April as it is just a pre-order bonus.
