Motorola Edge 30 Fusion is tipped for an imminent debut with leaks via the FCC, 3C and Wi-Fi Alliance
Motorola is officially drawing closer and closer to the launch of what might be its most premium smartphone - or smartphones, perhaps - ever. However, it is also linked to another, probably more affordable, handset that might be capable of drawing some eyeballs for itself, especially should it truly be able to maintain the legacy of its immediate predecessor.
The Motorola Edge 20 Fusion may have been a welcome entrant to markets such as India in 2021 due to its abilty to start at ~INR 18,000 with a 5G SoC and a 90Hz FHD+ OLED display. Now, an Edge 30-series replacement has registered in leaks from bodies such as the US' FCC and United Arab Emirates' TDRA, checked by name in the case of the latter.
The documentation in question cannot confirm its rumored MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset outright, although they do purport to establish that the Edge 30 Fusion (or Motorola XT2243-1) will, like its predecessor, be a 5G device with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.
It is slated to come with Android 12 out of the box - however, it seems it will advance to 68.2 watt (W) charging, whereas the 20 Fusion was stuck on 30W. Conversely, its successor will go back in time in the sense it may ship with a very full complement of accessories, earphones, a power brick and even a USB type-C to HDMI adapter included.
Unless the FCC is somehow very mistaken, there may even be a shot at a removable battery in this upcoming mid-ranger. Then again, a single Edge 30 Fusion power-pack is a slight downgrade on that of its 5,000mAh predecessor at 4,400mAh.
This, then, may be why the 30 Fusion has been said to cost as much as €679 (~US$693/INR 55,380) in some markets: it is possible Motorola wants to pitch it as the ultimate 2022 Android work phone. Hopefully, it has not compromized in some areas such as its screen (not to mention the 20 Fusion's 3.5mm jack) to deliver on this use-case.
