The Power of RCS for Cross-Platform, Inclusive Communication

Pixelated videos, broken group chats, missing read receipts we´ve all been there. Texting between Apple and Android users can be a pain, but it doesn´t have to be.

With a technology called Rich Communication Services (RCS) the modern industry standard for messaging conversations between iOS and Android platforms would improve for everyone.

In an effort to bring awareness to RCS and encourage a universal adoption of these inclusive communication standards, Motorola is supporting Android #GetTheMessage campaign. Social posts across Motorola´s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook will help educate users on the benefits of RCS, and encourage consumers to join the movement by sharing their own experience with cross-platform messaging.

Smartphones should empower us to seamlessly connect with the people around us, not build up barriers, said Rudi Kalil, President, North America at Motorola. As a leader in the Android space, we stand with industry partners to advocate for inclusive messaging standards. RCS enables seamless communication for all, and it´s time for a universal adoption within the smartphone industry.

So, what is RCS?

RCS rich communication services is the modern industry standard for messaging. It enables the latest texting features like high quality media sharing, read receipts, typing indicators, and it´s more secure.

The problem is that texts between iPhones and Android phones default to SMS and MMS, outdated systems from the 90´s and early. This downgrades the texting experience in several ways:

  • Pixelated videos and photos: SMS and MMS cannot support large media files. That means photos and videos are often compressed and come through blurry.

  • The chat that never ends: When group chatting via SMS and MMS, you don´t have the ability to leave the chat even when you want to.

  • No service, no message: Texting over Wi-Fi is not available between Android phones and iPhones, leaving messages unsent and convos hanging if you don´t have cell service.

  • Safely hit send? SMS and MMS don´t support end-to-end encryption, which means your messages are not as secure.

  • Will they or won´t they? Without read receipts and typing indicators, you can´t know if your friends got your text or if they´re responding.

  • What does that say? iPhones make texts with Android phones difficult to read, by using white text on a bright green background.

If there was a universal adoption of RCS within the smartphone industry, these texting issues between phones would be fixed. It´s as simple as that.

How you can help Apple #GetTheMessage 

We might not be able to change the color of green text messages, but we can encourage Apple to adopt RCS and make conversations between Apple and Android users better and safer for everyone.

Help Apple #GetTheMessage by joining the movement on social. Follow the action on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and share your experience using the #GetTheMessage hashtag – we know you´ve been there!

Motorola bridges stunning design and flagship features with three new edge devices

Today, Motorola continues to push the boundaries of the premium smartphone segment with the launch of three new edge devices: the motorola edge 30 ultra, motorola edge 30 fusion and motorola edge 30 neo. These smartphones combine the latest in technology, with outstanding design and experiences that will more than delight our human senses.

The motorola edge 30 ultra completely redefines what it means to be a premium device, giving new meaning to a device that’s “ultra-level.” This flagship device features the most advanced Snapdragon® mobile platform1, the industry’s highest resolution camera sensor and the fastest TurboPowerTM charging ever. Meanwhile, the motorola edge 30 fusion is the intersection of performance and beauty and showcases premium features packed in one stunning device with an edge to edge display.

But this is not all. At Motorola, we know our smartphones are more than just tools for communication. They have become a vessel for expression, helping us explore our creativity and delve into our passions. With this in mind, we are excited to also announce the motorola edge 30 neo. This new smartphone has a rarely seen compact design that doesn’t compromise on performance and debuts our long-term partnership with the global authority on color: Pantone.

motorola edge 30 ultra: capture life without limits

The motorola edge 30 ultra delivers cutting edge technology and the highest resolution camera system to help you capture life’s biggest moments. With the industry’s first 200MP main camera sensor you’ll take breathtaking and gallery-worthy photos. This massive sensor is designed to capture more light by combining 16 pixels into one 2.56μm Ultra Pixel, resulting in crisp, bright images even in the dark. Plus, with advanced HDR technology, it produces images with perfectly balanced highlights and shadows to give you beautifully detailed images even in mixed lighting. The main sensor also comes with OIS, which helps to eliminate unwanted shakes, for crystal clear photos and videos.

It doesn’t stop there. With our latest flagship you can take videos to the next level with 8K video recording, getting over 33 million pixels of resolution, the highest video resolution possible on a smartphone today. Or 4K HDR10+ video recording, that meets strict HDR10+ standards for color accuracy, color range, brightness, and contrast, to pack the videos with over a billion shades of color and rich detail.

We’ve also equipped the motorola edge 30 ultra with a 50MP ultrawide camera lens to fit more of the scene in frame and still get high quality photos. For extreme close ups, there’s built-in Macro Vision, which brings you 4x closer to your subject than a standard lens. To complete this incredibly advanced camera system, we’ve included a 12MP telephoto portrait camera so you can capture better, more beautiful portraits. Using a 2x telephoto lens, you can fill the frame with your subject while still maintaining an appropriate distance to capture facial features in the most flattering way. With a wide aperture and narrow depth of field of this lens, you can get a naturally beautiful soft focus background behind the in-focus subject. In portrait mode, you can adjust the focal lengths between wide (35mm), standard (50mm), or close up (85mm) to frame your subject in the best way possible. On the front, the motorola edge 30 ultra arrives with a 60MP front camera for stunning high-quality selfies with one of the highest resolution front-facing cameras available on a smartphone.

The new motorola edge 30 ultra comes with the industry-leading and most advanced Snapdragon mobile platform1 yet.

Our new smartphone also reduces touch latency with a 360Hz touch rate3 when playing, receives graphics and performance updates in real time and with support for the 144Hz4 display, you can expect smooth and vivid gameplay every time.

The motorola edge 30 ultra completely redefines the standards for fast charging. Now you can get power for the day in just 7 minutes of charging5 at unbelievable 125W speeds, the fastest TurboPower™ charging ever. To make things even better, this device also comes with up to 50W wireless charging capabilities, so you can recharge without the hassle of wires getting in the way or even give a little battery life to a friend with 10W wireless power sharing.6

Our new flagship comes with a stunning 6.67” pOLED FHD+ endless edge display that is nearly bezel-free to let you experience even more immersive content. Enjoy a sharper picture with less pixelation thanks to full HD+ resolution, and with HDR10+ you can view over a billion shades of true-to-life color with improved brightness and contrast. And with an unbelievably fast 144Hz4 refresh rate, switching between apps, playing games, and scrolling websites is incredibly smooth. Experience fully immersive sound on all your favorite content with two large stereo speakers that provide better bass, cleaner vocals and better clarity at higher volumes. Combined with Dolby Atmos, the motorola edge 30 ultra offers a spatial sound experience that harnesses the latest advances in sound technology to connect users more deeply with their favorite content.

Combining the endless edge display with powerful audio and industry leading WiFi 6E wireless connectivity lets you take cloud gaming to a new level, whether at home or on the go.

Take the beautiful 3D curved glass on the front of the phone, complete with fingerprint-resistant coating. On the back we’ve included a soft matte finish, giving it a silky tactile sensation you want to hold on to. Symmetrically curved edges blend seamlessly into a thin sandblasted aluminum frame. Even the camera housing features a bold new look, celebrating imaging technology and showcasing our most powerful sensor ever.

motorola edge 30 fusion: designed to be boundless

With the new motorola edge 30 fusion, you’ll find inspiration for everyday adventures with an impossibly thin, perfectly balanced design. The symmetrically curved edges look and feel amazing with a smooth contour that blends the front and rear glass. And for an elegant premium finish, this device provides a polished, sandblasted aluminum frame.

On the front, we’ve equipped this device with a 32MP front camera. And with Quad Pixel technology, the results are sharper and more vibrant photos with 4x better low light sensitivity. Not to mention, autofocus will keep you looking amazing, no matter how far you are from the front camera.

Motorola and Pantone announce multi-year partnership combining the power of technology, color and design

Motorola has been driving innovation within the tech and mobile space for nearly a century. We have seen the ways that our smartphones can serve as vessels for expression, representing, uniting and transforming who we are and what we see around us. We also know colors are incredibly powerful and can spur emotions, drive action and even play a big role in purchase decisions. Color can set the tone for moments big and small, and just like our smartphones, they can help us tell our story and connect with the world around us.

It was with this in mind that we turned to the global authority on color to partner with us and be on the forefront of trends and design. We are excited to announce Motorola’s multi-year, strategic partnership with Pantone, the de facto global color language standard and expert in color analysis and production.

leveraging color as a messenger with Pantone

For over 55 years, Pantone has been the world leader in color consistency and accuracy for brands and designers all over the world. It has continued to dominate the field of color, innovating its products across graphics, fashion and product design, helping designers bring their visions to life from inspiration to realization. Additionally, Pantone provides consulting services, forecasts, global color trends and advises companies on color in brand identity and product development through the Pantone Color Institute™. The design world eagerly anticipates Pantone’s annual color trend and intelligence forecasts, and over 10 million designers and producers rely on Pantone to help inform design and color-critical decisions and predict consumer behavior.

Determining the right design elements and features to best meet our consumers’ needs is crucial to the Motorola brand. Our global category exclusivity with Pantone is the next step in our commitment to empowering self-expression, elevating our relationship with color and giving us key insight on macro design trends, including their influence on material and surface finish application across design.

“We are thrilled to be a strategic partner to a brand as iconic and influential as Pantone,” said Ruben Castano, Motorola Executive Director of Customer Experience. “By combining our consumer and innovation-focused technology leadership with Pantone’s expertise in color trending, forecasting and market research, we will provide our consumers with another valuable method to express themselves through our devices.”

Throughout the long-term partnership, Motorola will receive access to Pantone’s trend knowledge, Pantone’s Color Institute™ experts, and a subset of curated colors that will feature strong design trends, including the Pantone Color of the Year.

“Motorola exists to design, create and deliver purposeful innovations to people across the globe and has a strong history in developing intuitive products,” said Elley Cheng, Pantone Vice President and General Manager. “At Pantone, we share these values, and we’re excited to be working with Motorola to highlight the importance and power of precision in design, innovation and self-expression in color and technology.”

Our designers will be working closely with the Pantone Color Institute™ as we continue unfolding this partnership and incorporating color psychology and strategy into our upcoming portfolio.

blending the power of color with technology

This partnership will begin with the launch of motorola edge 30 neo, which features four Pantone colors, Ice Palace, Aqua Foam, Black Onyx and the Pantone Color of the Year for 2022, Very Peri. The colors selected for the motorola edge 30 neo are the result of our first collaboration between the Pantone Color Institute™ and Motorola teams to create foundational and trend based shades that align with our brand and strategy for this device:

  • Ice Palace is a shade that stirs our imagination to envision new futures in fantasy or a trip into the greater galaxy. It mimics the reflective shimmer of the stars and conveys luxury as well as longevity.

  • Aqua Foam has roots in nature and is an organic color that soothes the spirit. It is neither masculine nor feminine. Instead, Aqua Foam’s technical appearance is hyper modern, and its dream-like hue speaks to a light-filled future.

  • Black Onyx represents protection and security, power and confidence and is a mineral-inspired, deep black hue. This color is practical yet glamorous and speaks to experience. Its elegant presence is considered the embodiment of sophistication.

  • Very Peri is a color with carefree confidence and novel presence that inspires dreamers and empowers creators. It is complex yet has mass appeal. It is the most appropriate color to dissolve the lines and forge bonds between generations, genders and cultures in a new decentralized world.

The motorola edge 30 neo will be available in Europe and Latin America. For more details and pricing contact your local PR representative.
