Motorola’s 2024 flagship, the Motorola Edge 50 Pro leaks about design and specifications ahead of its April 3 launch offers a refreshing alternative in the competitive Android smartphone landscape. The impressive array of specifications revealed on the retailer Flipkart’s site promises Motorola Edge 50 Pro to be a feature-rich smartphone in the mid-range segment What has caught the eye is the Android OS updates section!

Does Motorola guarantee timely 3 OS updates for upcoming Motorola Edge 50 Pro aka Moto X50 Ultra?

The moniker will run on Android 14 and is guaranteed to receive 3 OS updates (up to Android 17). Motorola promises 3 years of Android OS updates and 4 years of bi-monthly security updates to its eligible devices. While Samsung is rated the “King of Android Updates”, Motorola is considered to be at the bottom of the ladder. Its track record raises doubts about timely delivery. Despite its strong performance and feature set, Motorola’s historical Achilles’ heel—timely software updates—continues to be the reason for headaches for its loyal consumers and reviewers alike.

Moto phones are almost a year and a half behind the standard OS rollout schedule. In mid-August 2022, Motorola confirmed the eligible list of Moto phones to receive Android 13. When Samsung started rolling out Android 14 One UI 6 in January 20224 for its budget segment phones, flagship Moto phones were waiting to hear news on the Android 13 rollout.

Motorola is yet to push out Android 14 despite its scheduled mid-2023 release. The question that should haunt Motorola Edge 50 Pro buyers is whether Motorola will continue delayed OS rollouts for future Android versions. While the device offers a host of innovative designs and features, potential buyers may exercise caution due to Motorola’s track record with software updates. For loyal customers, Motorola’s track record will not be hard to choose to switch, for some maybe it’s just a preference for Stock Android or One UI.

If Motorola hopes to compete effectively, it will need to significantly improve its update process and deliver on its promises of timely and consistent updates across its device lineup. In the meantime, you can have a look at the Motorola Edge 50 Pro specs shared ahead of its 3rd April launch in India.

The Moto Edge 50 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 chipset, a powerful and efficient processor that promises smooth performance for multitasking, gaming, and other intensive tasks. While the global variant will be labeled the Moto X50 Ultra, the US market will likely see the device branded as the Edge+ (2024). This naming convention aligns with Motorola’s strategy for flagship devices in different regions across the globe.

The Motorola Edge 50 Pro display details available on retail store Flipkart reveal that it will feature a stunning 6.67-inch 1.5K curved pOLED display for crisp and clear visuals. The inclusion of a 144Hz refresh rate ensures smooth scrolling and gameplay, while the 2,000 nits peak brightness ensures excellent visibility even in bright outdoor conditions.

Additionally, the display covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut with SGS-certified blue light protection and protection by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.

The AI adaptive stabilization and AI photo enhancement guide are additional features that enhance the overall photography experience. Apart from the main sensor, there is a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera and an additional sensor whose details are currently unknown. On the front, there’s a high-resolution 50-megapixel sensor for stunning selfies.

The phone is equipped with a 4,500mAh battery that supports fast 125W wired charging. However, only a 68W adapter is included in the box. Additionally, it supports 50W wireless charging and 10W reverse wireless charging. The phone comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner for secure and convenient unlocking.
