Motorola Edge 30 Neo lands on Geekbench with Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G chipset, 8 GB of RAM and Android 12
It seems that Motorola has yet another Edge 30 series-branded smartphone up its sleeve. Currently, Motorola sells the Edge 30 and Edge 30 Pro in multiple markets, although it is expected to eventually offer the Moto X30 Pro globally as the Edge 30 Ultra. Additionally, a recently Geekbench listing suggests that Motorola is preparing to release the Edge 30 Neo, a device that Nils Ahrensmeier has mentioned previously.
Supposedly launching for approximately €399, the Edge 30 Neo appears to rely on the Snapdragon 695, the same chipset found in the Moto G71 and Moto G82. Effectively, the Snapdragon 695 is a re-branded Snapdragon 750G, with the same CPU and GPU cores operating at identical speeds. However, Qualcomm builds the Snapdragon 695 on 6 nm nodes, which delivers superior power efficiency compared to the 8 nm nodes on which it bases the Snapdragon 750G. According to our database, the Snapdragon 695 only outperforms the Snapdragon 750G by an average of 3% across numerous benchmarks.
Additionally, the Edge 30 Neo contains 8 GB of RAM, 2 GB more than the Moto G82. Unsurprisingly, the Edge 30 Neo runs Android 12, over which Motorola applies its My UX skin. Reportedly, the Edge 30 Neo is merely a re-branded Edge 30 Lite. If that is the case, the Edge 30 Neo should also launch with a 120 Hz POLED display measuring 6.28-inches across, a 64 MP primary camera with OIS, a 4,020 mAh battery and 256 GB of storage. Unfortunately, it is unclear when Motorola will announce the Edge 30 Neo or the Edge 30 Lite yet, nor in which markets.
