- An alleged live image of the Motorola Frontier has surfaced online.
- The image confirms the flagship will indeed be the first to feature a 200MP primary rear camera.
- The Motorola Frontier has triple cameras, a 144Hz AMOLED display, Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset, and 125W fast charging support.
After introducing a range of budget and mid-range phones in the G-series, Lenovo-owned Motorola appears to be gearing up to introduce its next flagship phone, often referred to as Motorola Frontier. Rumours have it the phone will be the first to feature a 200MP primary camera on the back, aided by the top of the line specifications. There are rumours about Motorola Frontier being the world’s first to ship with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset that is expected to go official in June. Now, while we wait for the announcement from Motorola, an alleged live shot of the phone has now surfaced online, offering a much close-up look at the camera.
The Motorola Frontier’s camera module design is similar to that of the Xiaomi 12, with the primary main sensor on the top and two regular lenses below. A tiny strap beside the camera module houses the LED flash and ‘200MP HP1 OIS f/2.2 aperture’ text engraved. This should be a confirmation that the phone will indeed come with a large camera sensor. The phone also appears to have curved edges and the iconic ‘Moto’ dimple can also be seen. The volume rocker and power button are on the right spine. The phone can be seen in Grey colour but we believe there could be other options at launch.
Interestingly, the leaked live image matches with the render Evan Blass had shared. However, the noticeable difference is that the latter had 194MP | OIS 1/15″ text imprinted. Whether the camera configuration has been changed recently or it was a 200MP lens all along is something that we might never know.

It is said to be powered by the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus chipset paired with Adreno GPU, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage.
