Gimmicky cameras, Gimmicky pixels
August is a busy month for the tech community with so many events coming out. July is a breather month, then this happens again in October. With that said, Motorola is not to be left out in the August event train. Lenovo has announced that they will be unveiling a new and improved Razr and the Moto Edge X30 Pro, the first phone with Samsung’s 200MP ISOCELL HP1 sensor. Something tells us this is gonna get finicky.
The phone is flagship all throughout and has characteristics typical of a modern-day flagship. These include a 6.67in. FHD+ (2400x1080px) OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, and multiple cameras. These include the 200MP primary camera alongside a 50MP ultrawide and a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x zoom. It’s usually the flagships that have little to no gimmicky cameras. The front camera has a whopping 60MP resolution, unheard of in any phone.
It has a typical 4500mAh battery with 125W fast wired charging and 50W fast wireless charging.
Meanwhile, the 2nd-gen Razr is now going to be a flagship device. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 like the Edge X30 Pro, a clamshell body similar to the Galaxy Z Flip, a 6.7in. primary inner display and a smaller 3in. outer screen. It will have two cameras. The main one has 50MP resolution and the other, a 13MP ultrawide. It will also have a 32MP front camera.
We don’t have much details yet regarding these two phones so we’ll have to wait until August 3rd to find out. For what they are, they certainly are promising. Especially the Razr, where everything got improved from the midrange all the way to flagship. The performance of these phones should also be promising, as the chipset is now manufactured by TSMC instead of Samsung.
