Motorola Edge X30 Highlights and Overview

The Moto Edge X30 is the bigger brother of the Edge S30. Even though naming of both of these phone sound closely related, their internal hardware and power are not. Beginging from the screen, the Moto Edge X30 comes in a 6.7-inches OLED display with 1-Billion colors. It has a 144Hz refresh, sport a dot-notch in the middle, offers HDR10+ and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Note that there is a model of the X30 with under display selfie camera, so no notch on that model.
