On Monday, the General Manager of Lenovo China teased the arrival of a new Motorola smartphone powered by Snapdragon 8xx SoC. He did not reveal its name but his Weibo post exposed the phone’s branding to be Motorola Edge S. Now, today, a well-known Chinese tipster suggests that this handset will be powered by a yet to release Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series SoC and not Snapdragon 888 or 865.
The Motorola Edge S could be a rebranded version of the upcoming Moto G device featuring Snapdragon 800 series SoC, which has been in the news for a while as Motorola Nio (XT2125). This smartphone is reported to flaunt an FHD+ (1080 x 2520 pixels) display with a dual punch-hole cutout and an unusual 105Hz refresh rate.
According to a Geekbench listing, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset paired with 8GB RAM. This suggests that the unannounced Snapdragon 800 series chip could be based on last year’s flagship SoC. Also, since there’s already an overclocked version in the form of Snapdragon 865+Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 865+ out of the blue, we can expect the same thing for this underclocked Snapdragon 865 SoC.
Other leaked specs of this device include a 64MP (primary) + 16MP (ultra-wide) + 2MP (depth) triple rear camera setup, a 16MP (primary + 8MP (ultra-wide) dual front camera setup, 8GB/12GB RAM, 256GB internal storage, and Android 11.
