Three new Motorola phones are now on the scene! One of them has a 200MP camera.

We are closer to the resolution of the human eye than we are closer to actually developing competent sensors.

Motorola Edge 30 Ultra

A week ago, Motorola unveiled the Edge 30 Neo, Edge 30 Fusion, and Edge 30 Ultra. The latter sports an unprecedentedly large 200MP resolution rear camera. The first of its class. Some say it’s gimmicky, some say it’s a feature but in a nutshell, this camera will bring those tiny tiny pixel-sized images with a more verbose detail especially when zooming in.

In collaboration with Pantone, the third, yet the lowest-end of the spectrum, the Edge 30 Neo flaunts aesthetics more than it boasts specs.

The phone still thankfully uses a pOLED screen, measured at 6.28in. and with a 120Hz variable refresh rate. The back comes in four Pantone-approved colours including Veri Peri, Pantone’s colour of the year for 2022. The other three include Aqua Foam, Black Onyx, and Ice Palace.

Inside is the popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone is powered by a 4,020mAh battery which may not be the largest but still is worthy to note as it is paired with 68W of fast charging.

The cameras are still competitive and powerful, despite it being midrange. The main camera is a 64MP shooter with OIS which is paired with a 13MP ultrawide unit. It’s also nice to see that the two useless sensors, 2MP depth and macro, are physically absent here. They serve little purpose whatsoever and the main camera paired with software algorithms can do the job alone. The front camera sits in the middle of the pOLED screen, with a resolution of 32MP.

It is available in Europe, for about EUR 370 (~Php 21.1K) for the 8/128 version. There is no word yet for the Philippines’ availability.

The second of the three released phones from Motorola is a slightly toned-down version of the Ultra. The Fusion sports a vegan leather back with a Neptunian Blue colour scheme. There are other three colourways for those that wanted traditional glass backs more. The Fusion also features an IP52 splash and dust resistance.

The display is a 6.55in. FHD+ (2400x1080px) pOLED screen with an ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate. Very high refresh rates are a signature for Motorola and Lenovo in general and the same one used from the Ultra.

Inside is the powerful 5nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ chipset that is quite competitive even by today’s flagship standards. This is paired with 8 or 12GB RAM with either 128, 256, or 512GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. The MicroSD card slot is absent here.

There are three cameras at the back but the highlight is the 50MP rear camera with multi-directional OIS. There is also the 13MP ultrawide camera and sadly, the 2MP depth sensor. At the front is the same 32MP front camera as the Neo and Ultra.

There is a slightly larger 4400mAh battery vs the Neo. According to Motorola, the phone can charge from empty to full in just 20 minutes courtesy of the 68W fast charging.

There is also a stereo speaker system again tuned using Dolby Atmos, there is no 3.5mm jack.

Aside from the Vegan Leather Neptunian Blue, there’s also Aurora White, Cosmic Grey, and Solar Gold which all come with glass backs.

Price and availability in the Philippines are yet to be announced but in Europe, the phone starts at EUR 600 (~Php 34.4K)

The only reason why you’re probably here hence we decided we put it at the bottom of this article so you actually read the whole dang thing. Unless of course you scrolled all the way down here, you sneaky bastard.

Anyway, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra’s specs are far more transparent than the latter two. Motorola specified that the screen is a 6.67in. pOLED “Endless Edge Display” with FHD+ (2400x1080px) resolution, HDR10+, 10-bit colour, 144Hz refresh rate, 360Hz touch sampling rate, SGS Slow Motion Blur and Blue Light certification, and a peak brightness of 1250nits. It is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 with anti-smudge. The back panel is also made of the same Corning Gorilla Glass. Also sadly, it only has IP52 splash/dust resistance but having protection is better than none.

Oh, this is also the phone with the first-ever 200MP camera! This allows you to see zoomed-in or cropped details much more visibly in comparison to 108MP ones (frankly, that camera is getting rarer now). This has f/1.9 aperture and OIS and can record up to 4K@30fps video (sadly no 8K here). There is also a 50MP f/2.2 ultrawide with 114 degrees FOV. FInally, there is a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x digital zoom and f/1.6 aperture. The front camera is a 60MP unit situated in the middle of the display.

The chipset used here is none other than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset paired with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and up to 512GB internal storage. It also has an oddly specific 4610mAh battery with 125W TurboPower fast charging paired with 50W fast wireless charging and 10W reverse charging

It has 5G services, a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 6/6E, and NFC. It lacks a headphone jack like the others. It comes with Stereo speakers as well that are tuned with Dolby Atmos.

It comes in Interstellar Black and Starlight White. The base 12/128 starts at EUR 900 (~Php 51.5K) and it’s an expensive flagship to set your standards. It is yet to become available in the Philippines.
