Moto Edge S30 brings Snapdragon 888+ and 108MP camera for less than $350

Moto Edge S30

The Moto Edge S30 gets unveiled today as a flagship killer with its powerful Snapdragon 888+ chipset and its 108MP triple rear cameras. It is unlike any device that the firm has released, yet at a moderate price.

What is the trade-off? You don't get that shiny all-glass design but a plastic back and a plastic frame. It uses LCD too for its screen, although it supports 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+.

At the back is a 5,000mAh battery that can be charged 0% to 100% within few minutes with a 33W charger supplied in the box. Like most Motorola smartphones, the Moto Edge S30 is splash-resistant certified with IP52 rating.

When we look keenly at the Moto Edge S30, we couldn't but notice that it is completely similar to the Moto G200 5G in specs and features.

It does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, but instead you get USB-C audio and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It runs Android 11, supports 5G on its dual SIM slot, and has WiFi 6 wireless connectivity.
