Motorola will debut its late-2022 Android flagship as the Moto X30 Pro in China (and, possibly, as the Edge 30 Ultra on a global scale thereafter) in August 2022. It is slated to launch alongside the new Razr foldable clamshell phone - which is said to be closer to it in terms of flagship specs than ever before in 2022. A new Geekbench leak might help confirm that rumor.

Motorola has announced that its next upcoming major product event will introduce both the Moto X30 Pro and Razr 2022 to their initial market of China. Therefore, it is poetic enough that they have allegedly leaked onto Geekbench on the same day (July 25, 2022). The 2 new tips seem to lend more weight to the reports that the 2 premium devices will launch with the same top-end processor.

This new rumor is mainly based on the appearance of a model number that has become strongly linked to the X30 Pro on the benchmarking website. Furthermore, this Motorola XT2241-1 has surfaced there alongside the XT2251-1.

The 2 devices have almost suspiciously identical 12GB of RAM, an 8-core 2.02/2.75/3.19GHz Qualcomm platform on the walt governor and an Android 12-based OS specs, only differing in terms of motherboard code-names: eqs for the XT2241 and oneli for the XT2251.

While that amount of power sounds most plausible for the X30 Pro (which, along with its new 200MP main shooter, is thought to be capable of giving even the Xiaomi 12S Ultra a headache), it would be a considerable step up for the Razr 2022, especially compared to predecessors saddled with distinctly mid-ranged processors.

All in all, it may now be interesting to see how Motorola plans to control thermal emissions for the Moto X30 Pro and Razr 2022: 2 devices that seem to be shaping up to be foldable and non-foldable yet camera-centric versions of each other.
