Announcement. Motorola Edge 30 - a semi-flagship with a modest battery

Motorola has announced a new smartphonenamed Motorola Edge 30. Handsome! Powerful, with a super screen, fast charging, optical stabilization. I don’t understand one thing - why is the battery so small? However, for some flagships, which we will not point fingers at, it is even smaller. So.

Rare Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ chipset. In AnTuTu, under 550-600 thousand points is more than worthy, although the distance to the flagships is decent.

Everything is fine with memory, the only pity is that the cardsmemories are not supported. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. At first glance, it seems that there are no countries where both versions will be on sale. Although, to be honest, it is very reluctant to look through all the regional sites of Motorola.

The screen is interesting, first of all, for its ultra-highrefresh rate - up to 144 Hz. Matrix - AMOLED, 6.5 ″ (102 cm²), standard high resolution - 1080 × 2400 (405 ppi). The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen.

The battery has a capacity of 4020 mAh, which is slightly below average by modern standards. Charging is fast, but not excessive - 33 watts.

The front camera has a resolution of 32 MP.From the rear of the cameras there are three pieces, 50 + 50 + 2 MP. The main module with optical stabilization (sensor, presumably OmniVision OV50A). Wide-angle, which can also work as a macro camera (Samsung ISOCELL JN1). Well, the depth sensor, where without it.

There is no standard audio output. Otherwise, everything is there, including NFC, stereo speakers and the latest version of Wi-Fi - 6E.

Cost at the start of sales in Europe Motorola Edge 30will be €449.99 (₽34,500, $474) and €499.99 (₽38,300, $527) for the 8+128 and 8+256 GB versions, respectively. Somewhere there are tasty discounts. For example, in Spain, where the older version can be bought for a couple of days for a hundred euros cheaper.

The first video reviews have already appeared, but so far only in languages ​​I do not understand.
