Peer-to-peer Payment Integration via Novi May Be Coming to WhatsApp in the Future
According to XDA-Developers’ latest WhatsApp APK teardown, the messaging app currently supports person-to-person payments in Brazil and India.
According to XDA-Developers last month, WhatsApp was planning to implement document verification for money transfers in the app’s beta version. There’s a new integration with Meta’s (formerly Facebook) Novi wallet app, which appears to be related to the verification issue in the most recent teardown of the app.
It is expected that the Edge 30 Ultra will have a 6.67-inch Full HD+ OLED punch-hole screen with a 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification, according to the publication. Android 12 will be pre-installed on the phone, and it will receive two OS updates worldwide.
Qualcomm’s SM8450 SoC, which is expected to be the Snapdragon 898, will power the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra. You’ll be able to choose between 8GB or 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage. Both are of type UFS 3.1. Despite the lack of a microSD card slot, the device will still be able to store additional data.
A 60MP front-facing camera will be joined by a 50MP primary (OV50A), a 50MP ultrawide (Samsung JN1), and a 2MP depth (OV02B1B) camera in a triple camera system on the back. Both the main camera and the selfie camera will be able to record 4K videos. OIS will be included in the main camera.
There will be an integrated 5,000mAh battery that can be charged via a USB-C (3.1 Gen 1) port at speeds of up to 68 watts. An unnamed source claims that the 68W adapter included in this kit will charge the battery to 50% capacity in less than 15 minutes, and to 100% capacity in under 35 minutes. Wireless charging and reverse charging will be absent from the Edge 30 Ultra, on the other hand.
The Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will be made out of plastic and have an IP52 rating, making it water-resistant. A dedicated Google Assistant button is available in Europe, but the 3.5mm headphone jack will not be included in any of the markets.
Leaked Motorola Edge 30 Ultra specifications include stereo speakers, WLAN 6, Sub-6 5G and Bluetooth 5.2.
In China, the Motorola Edge 30 Ultra will be known as the Moto Edge X, and since Motorola has already teased it, we can expect to hear more about it as we get closer to its rumored December unveiling date.
