Oh, to echo a legend, Motorola’s got that itch. A speed itch, you know? It’s all about zooming past the rest with what’s under the hood of the Edge 50 Ultra. And, oh boy, they’re not just talking about some snazzy processor.

We’re hitting 125 watts of charging power. You might’ve guessed it was coming, but now it’s official. Straight from the horse’s mouth. Motorola’s flagship for 2024 is all set to bring the Snapdragon 8s Gen 3 heat. Sure, it might not top the charts against the behemoths like the Galaxy S24 Ultra. But, when it comes to juicing up fast, it’s looking to leave others in the dust.

Let’s face it. Most top-tier phones in the US can’t even dream of touching 125W. Samsung’s pride and joy? Capped at 45W. And Apple‘s latest marvel, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, is practically stuck in the Stone Age with less than 30W.

Now, Motorola’s not exactly breaking the sound barrier here. The Realme GT 5, for instance, flirts with 240W charging speeds. But hey, if Motorola plays its cards right in the US, it could still steal the spotlight.

Yet, the Edge 50 Ultra’s American dream isn’t a sure thing. It might grace us with its presence, rebranded as the Motorola Edge+ (2024), after a grand reveal on April 16. But don’t hold your breath for those max speeds. Thanks to the fun world of regional restrictions, we might get the short end of the stick, much like the OnePlus 12’s downgrade from 100W to 80W stateside.

And there’s more. A sibling, the Edge 50 Pro, is tagging along. It’s a notch down but still packs a punch with the same 125W charging and a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chip. Already up for grabs in India, it’s making waves. And somewhere, Lieutenant Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is nodding in approval.
