Photo Announcement. Motorola Edge 30 Ultra is a twin for non-Chinese with a 200 MP camera

We continue our parade of takes.

Motorola announced several smartphones last night. This news is dedicated to the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra, which is the twin of the Moto X30 Pro announced last month in China.

The total number of megapixels, if taken and summed up from all smartphone cameras, is already 322. Impressive!

Moto X30 Pro was the world's first smartphone with Samsung ISOCELL HP1 photo sensor with a record resolution - as much as 200 MP. Edge 30 Ultra came in second.

What to expect from Samsung ISOCELL HP1 while �It's not very clear yet. Well, yes, the sensor is very big, 1/1.22". But it's a no brainer that few people will take pictures at all 200 MP (although there probably is such a mode). The main shooting mode, if I understand correctly, is with a grouping of 16 pixels into one, i.e. the resolution will be trivial, 12.5 MP. We are waiting for full reviews and comparisons.

The rest of the cameras are not so interesting, but also quite serious. Wide-angle resolution of 50 MP (can be a macro camera) plus a simple telephoto portrait camera of 12 MP.

Front camera equipped with OmniVision OV60A sensorwith a resolution of up to 60 MP. At the same time, the sensor has a rather modest size, 1 / 2.80 ". And, strangely, no one except Motorola uses it in their devices. Exclusive?

With iron, everything is simple, understandable, at ease. The chipset is the most powerful, i.e. Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (I usually remind you about a million plus points in AnTuTu). Memory. Officially, only one variety is mentioned so far - 12 + 256 GB. But perhaps there will be others. Support for memory cards, of course, no.

Screen with pOLED matrix. Large, 6.67" (107 cm²). Resolution is high, 1080x2400 (395 ppi). Refresh rate is as fast asabout 144 Hz. Everything is fine, but suddenly the fashion for screens that are very rounded from the sides has suddenly come out again. Crap. I hoped that she had long since been buried and forgotten.

Medium capacity battery, 4610 mAh. Charging is obscenely fast - 125 watts. There is also the possibility of wireless charging. Moreover, her speed is also off scale - 50 W.

With the "other" section, everything is simple and clear. NFC, 5G, latest Wi-Fi, etc. There is no standard audio output.

Price. €899.99 (₽54600, $898) at the start of sales in Europe, 6299.10 reais (₽73300, $1210) at the start of sales in Brazil.

Forin comparison, Moto X30 Pro is sold in China for ¥3499 (₽30600, $503), ¥3999 (₽34900, $575) and ¥4299 (₽37600, $618) for versions 8+128, 12+ 256 and 12+512 GB respectively.
