The Edge X30 Under Screen Edition, version of Edge X30 with front camera under the screen, should be announced in case of Motorola scheduled for March 17 (next Thursday) in China. In addition to giving more details about the variant presented alongside the traditional model at the end of last year, the brand can still announce its new foldable mobile phone.
The publicity teaser for the event shows the back of the Edge X30 behind a theater curtain. However, the promotional image does not feature any additional information other than the date of the event.
Earlier, insider WHY LAB hinted that the new version of Edge X30 will be released on March 17 in China. Recall that rumors about the model with a camera under the display appeared shortly after the launch of the device in December 2021.

Earlier this month, a new Motorola device with serial number XT22001-6 has been listed by TENAA, the Chinese organization equivalent to Anatel. The model is rumored to be the Edge X30 variant with the long-awaited camera under the display.
In terms of visuals and specifications, the document states that the new edition will be identical to the original Edge X30. However, the new model is expected to offer a complete full-screen experience as it doesn’t have a hole or notch for the front camera, in addition to bringing new color options such as black with gold accents.
Thus, the phone retains a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. Internally, the device continues to be powered by the processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 given Qualcomm and a 5,000mAh battery with support for 68W fast charging.
On the photography side, the new edition of the Edge X30 should keep the 60 MP front camera, now hidden under the screen. Additionally, the rear triple array will feature a 50MP main sensor with optical image stabilization, a 50MP ultrawide, and a 2MP unit for depth data.
Motorola’s possible foldable smartphone
In addition to the event teaser with the new Edge X30, Motorola also released a mysterious promotional image of a new device. The art features the following phrase in free translation: “It is satisfying to open the book and observe true joy.”
The phrase suggests a folding device in the fold format, whose screen opens like a book, similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 3 given Samsung. Although the Moto Razr line is known for its Flip looks, rumors indicate that Motorola is developing a new model in the series with a different design and a larger screen, scheduled for release in 2022.
So it’s possible that upcoming teasers – or leaks – ahead of the event will reveal more about the mysterious device.
