Motorola is set to announce the X30 Pro smartphone on August 2nd but as we are getting closer, it is sharing a few official details about the device. The latest revelation from the company is that the Moto X30 Pro will not come cheap. It is in comparison to the Motorola Edge X30 that debuted in December 2021.
The official confirmation does not mention pricing or price range for obvious reasons. We do know that the Edge X30 launched at a starting price of CNY 2,999 (about $445). It means the upcoming X30 Pro will certainly cost more. There might even be a significant price bump which could take it well above $500.
There are two major reasons behind such a huge price increment for the next smartphone. The first one is that the X30 Pro will come with a 200-megapixel camera sensor. It will be the biggest camera sensor on any phone which means it must also be a lot more expensive to procure. The next reason is the usage of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor which is also costlier than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 used on the previous model.
If we talk about other rumors, the Motorola X30 Pro is expected to sport a 6.67-inch curved AMOLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate. There is said to be up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB onboard storage. The battery capacity will be 4,500mAh and supported by a whopping 125W fast charging speed.
