Earlier this month, Motorola started teasing an upcoming event set for February 24. The only hints provided are that we’ll be getting our first look at the new Moto Edge lineup, but the rumor mill suggests something much bigger might be on the way. This includes the Motorola “Frontier”, which has now appeared in its entirety thanks to Evan Blass.
Blass didn’t provide any specs for the Frontier this time around, but we do get a look at what the Frontier will have to offer from a design perspective. A large AMOLED display covers the front of the phone with the glass curving around the edges until it meets the middle frame.
Around the rest of the phone, there isn’t much to write home about, as the Frontier sports the SIM card slot and speakers on the bottom with the USB-C charging port in the middle. But when you look at the back and side view of the Frontier, there’s a pretty big bump that houses the camera module.
If you zoom in on the image provided, the small text reads “194MP | OIS 1/1.5”, confirming that Motorola is using an absolutely massive camera sensor with the Frontier. It also helps to explain why the camera bump is so large despite being comprised of just three sensors and the LED flash.
As for the other two cameras, there’s nothing on the phone to denote what those sensors might be. But previous leaks point to Motorola using a 50MP ultra-wide lens along with a 12MP IMX664 telephoto camera, making for a rather formidable combination.
Those previous leaks suggest this will be a proper flagship for Motorola, as it will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, and will be available with up to 12GB of RAM. There could also be a 4,500mAh battery with 50W wireless charging speeds and a whopping 125W wired charging. Other rumored features include an under-display fingerprint scanner, a 6.67-inch POLED display with a 144Hz refresh rate, and support for Wi-FI 6E.
It’s looking like the Frontier could end up being a “One More Thing” type of reveal during next week’s event. But it also wouldn’t come as a surprise if Motorola unveiled this device on its own, separate from the rest of the Edge lineup.
