After the Motorola Edge 30 Pro, the company has now unveiled the standard Motorola Edge 30 – a phone that logically should have come first but is finally here now.

Below, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about the Motorola Edge 30, including those full specs and release date and price information.

Release date and price
The Motorola Edge 30 is set to go on sale in the UK from early May, priced at £379.99 (around $480 / AU$670). It will be sold at Currys and directly from Motorola’s online store.
The company also plans to launch the phone in Australia in the coming weeks, as well as parts of Asia, India, Latin America and the Middle East.
There’s no mention of the US, but the company has said elsewhere that it’s “delighted to share its commitment to delivering a new Edge family device to North America this year.” So if it’s not the standard Edge 30, then another model will land at some point.
The Motorola Edge 30 has a jewel-like pattern on the back that moves and changes as you tilt the phone. It weighs 155g and 159.38 x 74.24 x 6.79mm, so it is quite light and very thin. In fact, the company claims it’s the thinnest 5G smartphone in its class.
It’s unclear what it’s made of, but we’d guess it has a glass back and a plastic frame, like the Motorola Edge 30 Pro – although it’s possible it could all be plastic.
The back (which comes in a choice of Meteor Grey, Aurora Green or Supermoon Silver hues) looks flatter than many smartphones, and it has a large triple-lens camera block in the top left corner. From the front, there’s a flat screen with a punch-hole camera in the top centre.
The Motorola Edge 30 also sports an IP52 rating, meaning it has reasonable dust protection but only a small amount of water resistance.
There’s a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate on the Motorola Edge 30. That’s an extremely high refresh rate, even with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and iPhone 13 Pro Max, but that’s something Motorola has gone for before, like on the Motorola Edge 20.
The display also supports HDR10+ and meets DCI-P3 cinematic standards for color gamut, brightness, contrast, and color accuracy.
The company hasn’t listed the resolution, but we imagine it’s similar to the Motorola Edge 30 Pro 1080 x 2400, so reasonably sharp but not compatible with most high-end phones, which tend to have QHD+ screens .
Camera and battery
The Motorola Edge 30 has a triple-lens rear camera, consisting of a 50MP f/1.8 main sensor, a 50MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor (with a 114-degree field of view) and a a 2MP f/2.4 depth sensor.
The company boasts that the main lens has “all-pixel instant focus”, which uses 100% of the pixels so you can get faster and more accurate camera performance under any circumstances. what light.
The main camera also has optical image stabilization and can use pixel binning to combine four pixels into one. This lets in more light and improves night shots.
The phone can also record UHD video at 30fps or FHD content at up to 60fps, and there’s a slow motion mode that can record at up to 960fps (in HD quality).
Finally, there’s a 32MP f/2.4 camera on the front.
As for the battery, it has an average capacity of 4,020 mAh and supports 30W charging.
Specifications and features
There’s a mid-range Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G chipset powering the Motorola Edge 30, and as the name suggests, the phone also supports 5G. The phone also comes with 8GB of RAM and a choice of 128GB or 256GB of storage.
It runs Android 12, has dual stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, and supports Ready For – a feature that lets you connect the phone wirelessly to a TV or monitor, to display content on a larger screen. big.
