Motorola has launched a new phone called the Motorola X30 Pro in China. This is a flagship phone with top-shelf hardware including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chip and blazing fast 125W fast charging support but its biggest headlining feature is its main camera. Motorola X30 Pro is the world’s first commercial smartphone to ship with a whopping 200MP camera.
MOTOROLA X30 PRO SPECS, FEATURES
The Moto X30 Pro uses Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 200MP sensor that can bin its pixels 16-to-1 to produce 12.5MP resolution photos, though you’re also free to shoot natively at 200MP, or even at 50MP. The 1/1.22-inch sensor sits behind an optically stabilised lens with an f/1.95 aperture. The X30 Pro’s main cam can shoot 8K video at 30fps.
Joining the 200MP main sensor is another 50MP sensor behind an ultrawide lens and 12MP telephoto for up to 2x optical zoom. On the front, the X30 Pro has a 60MP selfie shooter.
