In a tweet released today, leaker Evan Blass showed off a promo for the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. It’s not the phone itself that’s interesting here, but rather the camera sensor.

In the minute-long video, a 200MP camera sensor on the back of the phone have shown. This would make it the smartphone with the biggest camera sensor on the market.
The video reveals a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 125W TurboPower charging, a pOLED display, and Dolby Atmos.
We evaluated the Motorola Edge (2022) earlier this year. The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra has a 200MP camera sensor, a more powerful chipset, and faster charging speed than the Motorola Edge.
The video claims the phone will contain Dolby Atmos, which provides “3D” spatial audio so users can hear noises from all directions. The phone will be introduced on September 8, after Huawei Mate 50 and iPhone 14. Once the phone is released in the U.S., the 60-second ad will appear during TV shows and sports events.
So, how did Motorola get to where it is today? After the DROID and DROID X, Motorola introduced “the world’s most powerful smartphone” in 2011. AT&T exclusive Motorola Atrix 4G.
The Atrix was one of the first phones featuring a dual-core processor and a fingerprint scanner, however it wasn’t as reliable as today’s technology. Optional Laptop Dock might power a laptop. Motorola focused on inexpensive phones like the Moto G after its high-end Atrix failed to sell.
It became successful with inexpensive models, then tried mid-range before returning to flagships in 2020 with the Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+. Motorola, the third-largest smartphone seller in the U.S., is about to release its most ambitious phone in years.
U.S. Motorola aficionados are excited about the company’s newest phone.
Android 12 and a 4610mAh battery power the Edge 30 Ultra. In addition to the 200MP primary sensor, there are 50MP and 12MP sensors for the ultra-wide and telephoto lenses (with 2x optical zoom). 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, 12GB RAM with 256GB or 512GB storage are possibilities.
My last three daily drives have been the Pixel 2 XL, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and the Pixel 6 Pro. I wasn’t intending to upgrade this year, but the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra’s 200MP camera, 60MP front-facing camera, and 125W charger caught my eye.
