The Motorola Edge 30 Pro was spotted with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor and 12GB of RAM

The device scored 1,172 points in the single-core test and 3,302 points in the multi-core test on Geekbench v5. The scores are below par for a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered phone but we know the test results are from an unfinished product. More software optimizations and the device could deliver to its true potential.

Motorola unveiled the world’s first smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 flagship chipset earlier this month. In China, the smartphone is known as the Moto Edge X30, although it is expected to be released in other areas as the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. It looks that the phone will be joined by other versions in the series, at least one of which will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. With the new Qualcomm chip at its heart, an unreleased Motorola phone named Edge 30 Pro just went via benchmarking website Geekbench (via).


  • Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Motorola Edge 30 Pro yet. It could share some of the specs with the Ultra model. The Chinese variant of the latter, i.e. Moto Edge X30, sports a 6.7-inch fullHD+ (2400 x 1080) OLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. It features a 50-megapixel main camera, a 50-megapixel ultrawide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth camera. The front-facing camera is a 60-megapixel sensor. The device packs a 5,000mAh battery with 68W fast charging support.

  • Nonetheless, the Geekbench listing reveals that the Motorola Edge 30 Pro will run Android 12 out of the box, of course. The device will come with 12GB of RAM, though the company may also offer it in other RAM options. Perhaps the handset will be available in 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB memory configurations.

Meanwhile, the China-exclusive Moto Edge X30 itself comes in two variants — a standard model with a punch-hole camera and a special edition featuring an under-display camera. It’s unclear which one will arrive as the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra in international markets. Perhaps the special edition, with the standard variant selling as the Edge 30 Pro. Truth be told, it’s all up in the air right now. Things should get clearer as the devices near their launch. We will keep you posted.

There could be a vanilla Motorola Edge 30 as well. Considering that Motorola has the Edge 30 Pro and Edge 30 Ultra in the pipeline, there’s every reason that we will see a vanilla Edge 30 as well. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard about it yet. Or maybe the Motorola Edge S30, which features the previous-gen Snapdragon 888 processor, will slot in here. Time will tell.
