The new Moto Edge X is expected to launch very soon, especially as Chen Jin, General Manager of Motorola Mobile Business announced the “infinitely powerful” Moto Edge X on Chinese social media network, Weibo, earlier this week. Speculation is rife that the new 5G phone will be called the Moto Edge X in some markets and the Edge 30 Ultra in others. 91mobiles, together with OnLeaks, has leaked 5K renders, 360-degree video, and specifications of the new phone and it looks very good indeed.
Motorola Edge 30 Ultra / Edge X specifications
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra / Edge X will be one of the first 5G phones to ship with the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 chipset, which is said to be paired with 8GB/12GB LPDDR5x RAM paired with 128GB or 256GB UFS 3.1 storage options.

Specifications come from notorious and trusted leaker, OnLeaks, who says the new camera phone will boast a 6.6-inch flat display with a punch-hole cutout. A recent leak suggested it will feature an OLED panel, 144Hz refresh rate, and HDR10+. The triple camera setup on the back is said to house a 50MP primary sensor, a 50MP secondary lens and a 2MP third sensor. Camera-wise the headliner has got to be the 60MP selfie-shooter on the front.
According to earlier leaked specifications, the 50MP primary snapper is an OmniVision OV50A lens, the secondary lens is a Samsung JN150 ultrawide sensor, and the 2MP lens is an OmniVision OV20B1B depth sensor.
A powerhouse 5000mAh battery, aided by a 68W fast charging support adds to the already impressive specifications. It will most likely run Android 11 with Motorola’s skin on top and be equipped with stereo speakers and an IP52 rating. For connectivity options, it’s expected this could include 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS and USB Type-C. Dimension-wise it’s tipped to measure 163.1 x 76.5 x 8.8mm - 10mm including the rear camera bump.
Edge 30 Ultra / Edge X design
The 5K renders 91mobiles has created show the phone with a punch-hole cutout for the 60MP selfie camera – which will surely make it the best self-shooter among 5G phones currently on the market, a classic Moto dimple on the back, slim bezels, and flat edges and a new camera module to house triple cameras.
According to the renders, the phone features a power button on the left, while the volume rocker and presumably a Google Assistant key on the right spine. At the bottom we see the USB Type-C port, speaker grille and primary microphone. The back panel is slightly curved towards the edges and houses a rectangular module to house triple cameras, the LED flash, and a noise-cancelling microphone. There’s no sign of a fingerprint sensor, but obviously that could be within the display itself.
