Motorola has announced the Moto Edge X30, the first smartphone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The flagship also has an optional under-display camera, a 5,000 mAh battery and three high-megapixel cameras. The Moto Edge X30 starts at CNY 3,199 (~US$504), too.

Motorola has unveiled the Moto Edge X30, the world's first smartphone with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. According to Motorola, Qualcomm's latest chipset offers 20% better CPU performance than the Snapdragon 888, with 30% super GPU performance to boot. Realme is expected to announce a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered smartphone too, as is Xiaomi.

The Moto Edge X30 has LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash storage, along with a 6.7-inch display that resolves at 1080p. The AMOLED panel can also run at 144 Hz, matching the Moto G200. Incidentally, the Moto Edge X30 is available with and without an under-display camera. Both rely on identical 60 MP front-facing cameras, but Motorola will sell the latter as the Moto Edge X30 Special Edition.

Additionally, the Moto Edge X30 has a 50 MP and optically-stabilised primary camera. Motorola complements this camera with a 50 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 2 MP sensor for capturing depth of field information. The smartphone can record videos in up to 8K, for reference.

Moreover, the Moto Edge X30 has a 5,000 mAh battery that it can recharge at 68 W. The device will ship with Android 12, too.

The Motorola Moto Edge X30 starts at CNY 3,199 (~US$504) with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. By contrast, the 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage model will set you back CNY 3,599 (~US$567). Meanwhile, Motorola will charge CNY 3,999 (~US$630) for the Special Edition model with an under-display camera. Motorola is yet to confirm when it will launch the Moto Edge X30 globally.
