- Render leaks of Motorola Edge 30 and Moto G 5G (2022) have been leaked.
- The Edge 30 has a 144Hz display and a Snapdragon 778 SoC.
- The Moto G 5G (2022) gets a 90Hz panel with budget space.
Part of Motorola’s 2022 smartphone roadmap was leaked a while ago, revealing a handset codenamed “Dubai”. It is thought to be the “little brother” of the Motorola Edge Plus flagship, which is also seen in some markets by the Edge 30 Pro and Edge X30. Thanks to a new leak, we now know that the phone is called Motorola Edge 30.
The latest information comes from tipstar Evan Blas. Reporting for 91 MobileBlass has posted a render of the upcoming Motorola Edge 30 that shows a device that looks a lot like its older siblings.
Instead of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that powers the Edge Plus, the Motorola Edge 30 has been suggested to feature the mid-range Snapdragon 778 SoC. It is rumored to carry some impressive features, such as a 6.55-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a 33W charging for a 4,020mAh battery. Unlike many top brands that no longer bundle charging bricks with their phones, Motorola has been asked to include a 33W charger in the box.
According to the camera, the Motorola Edge 30 seems to include two 50MP shooters and a 2MP depth sensor on the back. A 32MP selfie snapper is housed in a centralized punch hole A render suggests that the device may come with an official IP rating for water resistance. This is probably the same IP52 rating we saw on the Edge Plus. You can see the renders of the phone below
Blas says the Vanilla Edge 30 should start shipping before the end of this month.
Moto G 5G (2022)
Tipstar has also leaked pictures of Motorola’s upcoming budget offer – the Moto G5G (2022). The device (see above) is said to pack a 6.53-inch 90Hz display, MediaTek Dimension 700 chip, a 5,000mAh battery and a triple rear camera setup, including a 50MP main sensor and a 2MP shooter for depth and macro shots.
