Motorola shows what a 200-megapixel photo looks like | Digital Trends Spanish

There has been much speculation about the Motorola X30 Pro as of late, and a new photo confirms that the upcoming smartphone’s camera is just as impressive as it gets. Motorola has been making it sound.

The X30 Pro, also known as the Edge 30 Ultra, is equipped with a 200-megapixel camera on its rear, making it one of the most impressive photography-focused smartphones in the industry. While Motorola has spoken a great game about the quality of images we can expect the X30 to produce, a new photo means we’re finally seeing them with our own eyes.


Posted in Chinese Weibo blog site, Motorola China General Manager Chen Jin showed a single image taken with the 200MP camera. Even with the knowledge that the photo was compressed for upload to the website, it’s still a staggeringly compelling shot. The image is of a bouquet of flowers, so you can get up close and see many of the minute details of the plants.

While this is just a single image, and we haven’t seen the X30 officially in action yet, the photo is a good snapshot of what to expect from the X30 Pro’s camera when it launches later this month. With how important camera lenses have become on phones in recent years, it’s exciting to see a device that’s doubling down on quality and making photography the main focus.

While photographers should certainly be excited about the X30 Pro, there’s still a concern when it comes to storage. The image posted on Weibo is over 13MB, which means (hopefully) the X30 Pro will have some big internal storage options. Otherwise it will fill up quickly. This is always a concern when it comes to photography-focused devices, so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that Motorola can provide solid storage options here.

There is no official word yet on when we can expect the smartphone to launch. However, based on previous leaks, it looks like it will go on sale later this month in China and arrive in the West in mid to late August. If that’s the case, expect to see more sample images of the X30 Pro in the coming weeks. Hopefully, future samples won’t be limited by compression so we can see exactly what Motorola has up its sleeve.
