If you’re still bummed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 21 didn’t make it to market and want a stylus-wielding luxury phone in your life, Motorola could be preparing to launch a smartphone for you. This is because the reported Motorola Edge 30 Ultra appears to be compatible with the company’s styli. Two accessories for the unannounced phone have been leaked to XDA Developers: a business-like folio case and, most importantly for this tale, a stylus.
The next Moto phone may be able to fill the void after the Samsung Galaxy Note
The S21 Ultra let you use S Pen styli, but you had to contain it in a case when not in use. The Galaxy S22’s Ultra version might actually have a stylus slot when it launches, if rumors are to be trusted. Motorola’s Edge phones, which are about to enter their third generation, have toyed, but not committed, to the top-end phone market. While the original Edge Plus was a super-pricey ultra-premium phone, the Edge 20 Pro had a price more in line with base-level flagship phones like the OnePlus 9 and Samsung Galaxy S21, much less than the Edge Plus.
We’ve seen Motorola phones with these control sticks before, but they’ve been budget mobiles like the Moto G Stylus (2021), and we generally don’t see the company (or any others, save Samsung) put out premium mobiles that can be controlled with styli. The folio case renders show a slot for the stick which suggests the phone itself doesn’t have a gap for it, unlike in Moto Stylus or Galaxy Note phones, so it sounds like the Edge 30 Ultra could have an arrangement like Samsung’s Galaxy S Ultra phones.
It seemed like Motorola had abandoned the ultra-premium phone price tier, but the Edge 30 Ultra specs we’ve been hearing suggest a return to it. We’ve heard the device could get the top-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, multiple high-res rear cameras, super-fast charging and a big screen. It’s hard to know the exact specs, even from rumors, because some that referred to the Edge 30 Ultra actually turned out to describe the Edge X30 which only launched in China.
