Motorola has just launched the newest addition to its edge family, the Motorola Edge 30. This smartphone has the distinction of being the thinnest 5G smartphone in its class, at just 6.79mm width. It features an eye-catching look, with subtle, jewel-like patterns etched in the rear that shift and change as you tilt the phone from side-to-side.
On the front, you get a vibrant 6.5″ OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification. The display is also rated to DCI-P3 cinematic standards for colour range, brightness, colour accuracy, and contrast level. The multimedia package is finished off with two large stereo speakers, packed with the multidimensional sound of Dolby Atmos, to help deliver a more immersive viewing experience.
The games and high-resolution videos are run by the very capable Snapdragon 778G+. It features an advanced modem and the latest Wi-Fi 6E support, so you can download, stream, and video chat without lag. Rounded off with up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage, so you never feel slow on-the-go.
To capture memories on-the-go, you can rely on the powerful 50MP high-res camera that uses the new Instant All-Pixel Focus. In this system, the camera uses 100% of pixels in both vertical and horizontal patterns to get faster, more accurate performance in any light and enables you to shoot with 32x more focusing pixels. Other camera benefits enabled by this system include night time pixel binning, which combines every four pixels into one massive ultra-pixel, for more usable light.
On the video front, you get Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), as well as the ability to record HDR10 videos with over a billion shades of colour. While the front 32MP doesn’t get these features, it does get optimized for social media. As Motorola paid special attention to performance in areas like facial rendering, front camera video recording or video chats, as well as significant noise reduction when capturing still images. This is to compensate for the bad camera quality often seen with 3rd party camera integration in apps like TikTok, WhatsApp and Instagram.
All of these benefits can be experienced on your phone, or through any other device imaginable. Since the Edge 30 features Ready For3 connectivity, which allows you to easily connect wirelessly to a monitor or your TV. With the inclusion of future-ready 5G technology, this kind of connected user experience will only get enhanced with time.
To help sustain this enriched smartphone experience for a long time, the company has included a 4020 mAh battery with the device. It supports TurboPower 30 charging, which gives you an hours’ worth of power in just a few minutes of charging. You can get this incredibly capable smartphone in Meteor Grey and Aurora Green colours, with a starting price of AED 1,599, at all relevant retailers.
