Motorola is gearing up to launch its next bundle of exciting phones under its Edge line. Last year’s Edge phones were great devices, and we are hoping that the company continues that trajectory.  Well, we kind of have our doubts now, as we learned the possible processor for its next flagship phone. According to a new leak, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro’s processor might be the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3.

If you’re curious about the 2023 line of Edge phones, we at Android Headlines did reviews on both models that came to the US. The Motorola Edge 2023 (Review) was an excellent phone for its price with smooth performance, a gorgeous display, some of the best speakers we ever reviewed on a phone, and an amazing design. Also, the Motorola Edge+ 2023 basically took that entire experience and boosted it with a more powerful processor.

If you’re a person looking to get this phone for its power, then you might be a bit disappointed. Right now, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is powering the most powerful phones on the market including the Galaxy S24 series of phones. However, Qualcomm has a less powerful processor known as the Snapdragon 7 Gen 3. It’s one step behind, but it’s still a very capable player.

According to Geekbench scores, it appears that this is what the Motorola Edge 50 Pro will use. Looking at the chart, this phone got a single-core score of 1,097 and a multi-core score of 3,114. Those scores aren’t great, but we can’t take Geekbench scores as an indicator of a phone’s day-to-day performance.

In any case, there are people who will be disappointed with this phone because of the processor. The Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 is a very capable processor. However, it’s definitely going to fall behind the top competition on the market this year in terms of raw processing power. So, it’s going to be behind phones like the OnePlus 12 (Review) and the Galaxy S24 series.

Other rumored specs

The Motorola Edge 50 Pro is still an enigma at this point. However, we do have some rumored specs that have been floating around. For starters, and this might not be as much of a rumor, as the Geekbench listing confirmed this, but this phone is set to have 12GB of RAM.

The Motorola  Edge 50 Pro is rumored to come with a 6.7-inch pOLED display with a 1.5K resolution and a 144Hz refresh rate. This display may reach a whopping 2,000 nits of peak brightness and support HDR10+. Also, the company claims that this will be the world’s first Pantone-validated display.

Moving on to the camera, it appears that this phone will use a 50-megapixel primary camera. Lastly, we have word that this phone will have 3 colorways which are black, purple, and white.
