MWith the Motorola Frontier, the Chinese manufacturer Motorola is planning a new flagship. TechnikNews only first data are available.

With the Motorola x30, the Lenovo subsidiary already has a device with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 on the Chinese market, which will also appear in Germany in the next few weeks (then under the Edge 30 branding). But of course a "next generation" Motorola Edge is already in development. This shows documents which TechnikNews available exclusively.

Motorola Frontier: 200 megapixel main camera, next Snapdragon

The device is being developed internally under the codename “Frontier” and has very strong specs on the spec sheet. The successor to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will already be working in the device, with 8 or 12 gigabytes of RAM. The successor is listed at Qualcomm under the code name "SM8475", but we can't say more. The display will be a 6,67" FullHD+ curved POLED panel, which works at 144 Hertz.

A 200 megapixel (no, no typo) is installed as the main sensor, more precisely the new HP1 (S5KHP1) sensor from Samsung. A Samsung sensor (S5KJN1SQ03) will also be installed as an ultra-wide-angle camera, which has a resolution of 50 megapixels. The third camera on the back is a telephoto camera with a resolution of 12 megapixels and comes from Sony. The IMX663 sensor is also used in the Sony Xperia 1 III. The front camera, which has a resolution of 60 megapixels (OV60A from OmniVision), completes the megapixel firework display. Incidentally, the front camera will use the new "Always on Feature" of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

Something has finally happened with fast charging. So far, Motorola has set a maximum of 33 watts of charging, I also have this in my review to the Motorola Edge 20 Pro criticized. According to the information we have, the company is making a very big leap in charging technology for the device. The device is said to be equipped with 125W fast charging via USB-C and 50W wireless charging. However, we cannot yet say how large the battery is.

We can't name a launch date exactly yet, the next Snapdragon should probably appear in Q3. From then on everything is possible.
