It appears that Motorola is bringing its A-game in 2024. This is the new Motorola Edge 50 Pro. Of course, it’ll likely use two other names as well. In China, it’ll likely be called the Motorola X50 Ultra, and in the US, it’ll likely be called the Motorola Edge+ (2024).

This is quite a stunning smartphone from Motorola, coming in three colors: purple, black, and a silver/white/stone color. The silver color looks pretty similar in design to the OnePlus 12 in the Flowy Emerald color. It looks nice. However, the backs of the purple and black colors appear to have a texture. This definitely looks like faux leather, which is a texture we’ve been seeing a lot more recently on smartphones.

Motorola has equipped the Edge 50 Pro with a triple camera setup on the rear. This includes a 50-megapixel f/1.4 aperture main sensor as well as a wide angle at 13mm and a telephoto at 73mm, which would be a 6x zoom. This camera setup looks pretty incredible, with laser autofocus and OIS also included.

Motorola’s sticking with a curved display

In the past six months or so, we’ve seen many flagship phones launch without curved displays, instead opting for flat displays, like the Pixel 8 Pro last fall and the Galaxy S24 Ultra in January. But Motorola is sticking to a curved display here. It will be a 6.7-inch display with a 165Hz refresh rate.

Complete with a hole punch for the front-facing camera, this new smartphone from Motorola seems to have it all. Internally, it is set to sport the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, 12GB of RAM, 4500mAh capacity battery with support for 125W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.

Motorola has already released a teaser for the X50 Ultra in China, which indicates that this is going to be an AI phone. That sounds about right, with everything having AI these days and most smartphones launching with Google’s Gemini AI model, too.

We should learn more about the X50 Ultra/Edge 50 Pro in the coming weeks. These renders show the date of April 3, which is typically the announcement date for the phone in the render. That’s less than a month away.
