Motorola's latest smartphone teasers have given rise to speculation that the device in question is its upcoming flagship with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor. Now, the OEM has decided to go ahead and confirm this Moto X30 Pro in its capacity as such a flagship - with the AnTuTu benchmark score to match. This new official leak may also reveal even more than Motorola intended.

Motorola's next top-end Android flagship smartphone is slated to launch as the Moto X30 Pro, so as to distinguish it from the existing Edge X30, and is widely expected to do so with the wildest and most cutting-edge mobile device specs known to the brand thus far. The brand has not confirmed any of this outright, however - until now, that is.

The X30 Pro has long been tipped to become Motorola's first-gen Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 (or 8+ Gen 1) vehicle - now, the general manager of Motorola China, Chen Jin, has gone ahead and confirmed that this is the case.

The executive purports to back this new teaser up with an official AnTuTu assessment for the Moto X30 Pro. Unfortunately, the results page in question, replete with individual CPU, GPU and UX scores as it often is, has been cut down to the headlining overall score only.

Nevertheless, it contains what might be good news for Motorola fans. At a combined total of no less than 1,114,761, it has come in about equal to that currently associated with the Xiaomi 12S Pro. Therefore, this is the best sign yet that both are indeed 8+ Gen 1 phones.

Furthermore, it looks like the Moto variant will also have the charging speeds to match its performance. Chen Jin's new screenshot also effectively reveals the Pro's model number: XT2241-1, last spotted being registered as Motorola's inaugural 125W smartphone. 

Therefore, while the 12S Pro has beaten it to launch today (July 4, 2022), the Moto X30 Pro just might win in the end - especially if it can indeed add a world-first 200MP main camera to its extreme list of specs later in 2022.
