Motorola debuted the Moto S30 Pro alongside the flagship X30 Pro; however, the Android 12-powered smartphone is destined for Chinese consumers only. Then again, it is thought be able to break into the global market soon as the Edge 30 Fusion. Now, a famous leaker has released renders purporting to establish that both devices are one and the same.

Motorola launched the Moto S30 Pro as a more affordable alternative to the X30 Pro. It has a curved FHD+ 144Hz OLED display in common with the new ultra-premium smartphone; however, it is 6.55 inches in diagonal length, and is driven by last year's Snapdragon 888+ rather than the direct successor found in the X30 Pro.

The S30 Pro also has a camera hump that will seem sedate after being exposed to that of the X30 Pro, and houses a 50MP main camera from OmniVision alongside a 13MP ultra-wide shooter and a nearly invisible 2MP depth-sensor.

It also definitely diverts from Motorola's new super-spec'd device with the former-flagship 68W power standard for a battery of 4400mAh in size (the better to make claims of short wired charging times, maybe).

Nevertheless, it might draw some consumers with a starting price of 1,999 yuan (~US$295) for a SKU with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

In that case, it might be a shame that the OEM made no mention of an international release for the Moto S30 Pro. However, it now seems that it might still get one, just under another name.

The Edge 30 Fusion has been touted as a potentially productivity-boosting new option from Motorola that might follow its predecessor into markets such as India. Evan Blass has asserted that this is because it is in fact an upcoming Moto S30 Pro re-brand, mainly based on allegedly identical specs and a code-name (tundra).

Now, Blass' latest "30 Fusion/Tundra" tip consists of renders of a device with the Moto S30 Pro's design, down to the Dolby Atmos logo on its flat top edge. Therefore, prospective Edge-series fans might be happy enough with this new Fusion variant should it launch soon in that form.
