Motorola Launches the Slimmest 5G Smartphone in the UAE
Motorola launched the newest addition to its edge family: the Motorola Edge 30. Coming in at 6.79mm, the edge 30 is the thinnest 5G smartphone in its class so it takes up less room in your pocket, fits comfortably in your hand, and is still packed with amazing technology inside. Motorola has also given it an eye-catching look, with subtle, jewel-like patterns that shift and change as you tilt the phone from side to side for complexity and depth.
The Motorola edge 30 features a powerful 50MP camera system, an ultra-smooth 144Hz 6.5″ FHD+ OLED display, multidimensional Dolby Atmos sound, and the power-efficient Snapdragon 778G+ 5G Mobile Platform, the new edge device has everything you could want to be packed into a sleek, modern design.
The edge 30 boasts a 50 MP Ultra-wide camera sensor, 32 MP dedicated front-facing camera, and Motorola’s most advanced 50 MP high-res camera that uses the new flagship standard for autofocus and Instant All-Pixel Focus. Whereas traditional focus technologies use around 3% of pixels, Instant All Pixel Focus uses 100% of pixels in both vertical and horizontal patterns to get faster, more accurate performance in any light and enables you to shoot with 32x more focusing pixels.
Other camera benefits include being able to capture sharp details in the daytime, and then as night falls, the camera lets in more light by combining every four pixels into one massive ultra pixel. Plus, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), eliminates unwanted shakes, so you’re set to shoot the best photos in a whole new way. And the brilliance goes beyond photos – you can record HDR10 videos with over a billion shades of colour for more lifelike storytelling than ever before.
Often, camera quality suffers in 3rd party apps like TikTok, WhatsApp, and Instagram, but with the edge 30, Motorola paid special attention to performance in areas like facial rendering, front camera video recording or video chats, and significant noise reduction when capturing still images – making it a content creator’s dream device.
Your favourite shows and games can also come to life thanks to the 6.5″ OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ that meets DCI-P3 cinematic standards for colour range, brightness, colour accuracy, and contrast level, so you can view everything in over a billion shades of colour.
