It seems that Motorola is on the verge of releasing the S30 Pro and Edge 30 Fusion, two names for the XT2243-2. To be sold in different markets, the pair will both feature a Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset and at least 12 GB of RAM. Allegedly, the S30 Pro and Edge 30 Fusion will debut later this quarter with a 144 Hz display and a 50 MP primary camera too, among other features.

Details on another high-end Motorola smartphone have emerged online, courtesy of a Geekbench listing. As the screenshot below shows, the device in question is the XT2243-2, the model number for what is expected to launch in China as the S30 Pro. By contrast, Motorola is rumoured to have rebranded the S30 Pro's global variant as the Edge 30 Fusion, mirroring last year's S30 and Moto G200.

According to the Geekbench listing, XT2243-2 features the Snapdragon 888 Plus and 12 GB of RAM, not the MediaTek Dimensity 900 as @OnLeaks and CompareDial claimed in June. Instead, the presence of a Snapdragon 888 Plus suggests that the S30 Pro and Edge 30 Fusion are 'Tundra', a codename that Evan Blass leaked in the same month. According to Blass, Tundra also has a 6.55-inch pOLED display with a 144 Hz refresh rate, plus LPDDR5 RAM, a 4,400 mAh battery and a 50 MP primary camera.

While Geekbench does not report any camera specifications, Blass has already outlined that the handset will launch with 32 MP front-facing, 13 MP ultra-wide and 2 MP depth of field cameras, too. Purportedly, Motorola will unveil the S30 Pro or Edge 30 Fusion later this quarter. Pricing is alleged to start at €679, although that information came from @OnLeaks and CompareDial, not Blass. Incidentally, the Edge 30 Fusion recently appeared on 3C, FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance databases, as we discussed last week.
