Motorola is now rumored to launch a smartphone with the impending next iteration of top-end Qualcomm processors. Now, more alleged details of this device have emerged. According to this new leak, it will be released to the global market as well as in China, and will have markedly high-end specs, particularly in the display department, in both instances.

Motorola is now said to be in a race with Xiaomi to launch the world's first Snapdragon 898-based Android smartphone in late 2021 or early 2022. The device in question had been dubbed the Edge X in its initial leaks; however, the blog TechnikNews now asserts that name is for the Chinese market only, and that it will be rebranded as the Edge 30 Ultra for international markets.

The outlet goes on to insist that it will certainly earn the last term in that new name on its global debut. Its top-end SoC is now slated to drive an FHD+ AMOLED display of 6.67 inches in diagonal length and an extra-fast refresh rate of 144Hz.

This screen may be kept on with a generous 5,000mAh battery, equipped with 68 watt (W) charging technology. Such a spec would be unusually high-end for Motorola - although it might be intended to make up for the lack of wireless charging in the "Edge X/30 Ultra".

Nevertheless, TechnikNews suggests that the OEM will certainly not skimp on the selfie-camera specs in the upcoming device: it is said to be an uncommonly high 60MP in resolution. In terms of rear cameras, Motorola is now slated to follow the dual 50MP trend for its next premium phone.

The "Edge 30 Ultra" may have 8 to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 128 or 256GB of UFS 3.1-rated internal storage. Should it win its rumored sprint to the 898 finish line, the phone (now linked to the model number XT-2201, and to the code-names Rogue and HiPhi), just might make it to a live-streamed stage by the end of 2021.
